Five things about myself

Marina Sum recently tagged me to write five things about myself. Sounds easy, however depending on when you ask me to come up with something interesting, I may come up with different things :-) For instance I am currently in Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, so one of the things that come to mind is traveling (even though many time travel ~ jet lag).

I just finished reading the news and I realized that I love to watch football. I grew up in Romania idolizing soccer, however after immigrating to the US in early 1990, I became a huge football fan. 

As a child I started reading WW II books and soon I became a history buff. I love history and I just wish more people would take the time to understand history and historical events, that many times have repercussions many years later (e.g. the Balkan's, Middle East).

Most of the people that know me would tell you that I love the outdoors, even though many times I don't find much time, I still try to run once or twice a week in the beautiful environment of the San Mateo County hills. 

The most influential person in my life has been my grandmother. Without her relentless support and constant encouragement I would not be the person that I am today. Grandma Dorina has passed away, however she is always in my thoughts.

Now it is my turn to tag five people: John Treacy, Todd Fast, Valeriu Bajenaru, Tor Norbye, Alexandru Seibulescu

Fascinating! Well done, Octavian. And I second your thought about history.
