I started to lead my personal project called “One Second Every Day” since the first day of 2015. The idea of this project in a nutshell:
1. Try to catch up the most important moment of your day
2. Get a phone from your pocket and shoot the video of this moment
3. Cut one second from this video
4. Merge it to the general video sequence
At the time when this post will be published, probably I’ll be on the way to Berlin. This is my next stage of life. Stage which is full of questions and attempts to answer on them.

But let me try to explain such experience as I usually do: by 10 thoughts.
Disclaimer: this post is not about personal praise, arrogance and chattery. It’s just a checklist of strikethrough items in my life. Remember, this is my personal blog and I want to write about my life.
There is a popular tradition to summarize things done during the outgoing year. I’m personally doing this second year in a row. You might ask what’s the matter of this?
Well, for me it’s a great opportunity to realize how far did I push my life in the fixed time range. This way is great to measure your progress and set the appropriate goals for the future.
I started to remember why did I start blogging. The answer is “to collect my experience and share it publicly”. So, I’ll keep this going and now I want to remember how to upgrade the Cassandra cluster smoothly with no downtime.
