I have a particular affinity toward moleskins, Nietzsche, and fountain pens. I also enjoy cappuccinos, The Economist, dancing, B&W photography, Kafka, electronic music, philosophy, kickbox, Paulo Coelho, black (color), and politics. And of course, blogging. That's where BohemianTranscendence comes in: this blog is not only the recount of personal experiences, emotions, and thoughts, but also an exploration of the passion hidden behind our desire for life.

Let’s go running

I love mornings. I believe I’ve said it many times, but it’s worth repeating because mornings are the kind of things that still keep surprising me.
Take for instance a morning some time back in August. I had spent a couple to a few months doing mostly no other, but spinning workouts, as my desperation toward the habitual and everlasting running injuries had reached its limit. And then, that particular morning, I woke up, and the desperation was gone…. [Read more.]

Principles in life – Short reflection

Posted by on June 14, 2012 at 5:15 am under catogories [ReflectionsSelf-Improvement] and tags. 3 Comments.

Personal principles are not made to be followed during easy times, but during hard ones. They are meant to guide us, to give us a direction, and to simplify our decisions — even when opting for the right choice is difficult.

I remember an excellent example from the book Made to Stick regarding SouthWest Airlines. In short, the story was about the decision not to serve chicken salad to the flyers of a particular route…. [Read more.]

Early Monday & a workout

Posted by on June 11, 2012 at 8:23 am under catogories [PersonalWorkouts]. Leave a reply.

Whenever you wake up at 2:30 a.m. with the feeling that you won’t be able to fall asleep, you’ve got only 2 choices. Either toss around in bed and get even more frustrated than you already are, or get up and do what you’ve got to do.

I’m glad to say that today I decided for the latter and here I am, being productive while most people are still waking up, after an amazing workout in the gym. Best of… [Read more.]

This post is a continuation to my Intro to Dubai trip in which I talked about arriving on late Saturday evening. (Yes, the post I was supposed to publish about 5 Fridays ago ;-) )

Blog updates.

Just wanted to let you know a couple of things related to the blog:

  • The issues with IE are solved (at the least the ones I found out about).
  • I’m currently  (as, in this instant) switching comment systems, from IntenseDebate to DISQUS. While I loved the IntenseDebate option of subscribing only to replies, rather than the whole conversation, it never worked for me, neither on this blog, nor on some other people’s blogs I know of + there are… [Read more.]

A couple of blog related issues…

Posted by on March 21, 2012 at 11:44 pm under catogories [Random] and tags. Leave a reply.

I’m aware of at least 2 bugs that have recently appeared on the website… (Or I just became recently aware of them). One is related to the comment system: apparently it’s declining some of your comments due to e-mail address issues. Thanks to Seb for letting me know about this.

The other one is related to how the site looks under the latest version of IE 8 and more specifically  how the font styling looks… If you haven’t… [Read more.]
