We went to the Silicon Valley…
I’ve wanted for a while to visit Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, and my dream came true !
First stop – at the Apple Store nearby, nicknamed “Visitor Center” where you can find cool goodies that you wouldn’t be able to get at any other store. Fun fact, they don’t have a Genius Bar… which makes sense, because it’s mostly a pit stop for tourists.
What’s nice is that they have a cafeteria. I loved the design of the building, it’s incredibly beautiful and aesthetic. They have a map of Apple Park inside, that you can visualize via iPads in augmented reality, which is fun.
Second stop for me is beyond limit for tourists – without going into details, I was lucky enough to experience the breathtaking circular spaceship that is Apple Park. It is absolutely bananas inside !
I can’t tell or share anything about it, except for my feelings which were basically : “OMGosh”, “Is this real life ?!”, “I can’t believe where I am right now !”, “Can somebody pinch me because I’m having a stroke”, “I NEVER WANT TO LEAVE !” pretty much… It was the highlight of my trip.
“I don’t understand, is it a millennial thing ? This need to
share everything with the world ?”
There’s so many articles, tweets, and posts online about millennials… being part of that generation, I don’t exactly grasp why there’s such an obsession about our values & behavior – but at the same time, I know we’re totally iconic.
Yes, I am being sarcastic right now. I was recently advised to stop sharing my life, and accused of being a narcissist because I kept a blog as a diary… and somehow that gave the right to that person to paint me as self-centered.
Although I cannot agree because I know that this has always just been a cool hobby to me, and it’s whatever, not that serious. I was still deeply affected by that hater speech, which compromised my true personality and made me out to be someone I’ve never been.
But I get it, “millennials are like gluten, nobody really knows what they are but everybody loves to hate them”. The funniest part in that quote is that I check both cases, because I’m also intolerant to gluten… which is great.
I’m probably gonna start adulting soon (I hope… it’s another joke), and put my mind back on serious work, but in the meantime, I will not accept anyone tell me how to process my feelings for example. At the end of the day, I know myself best and I know what’s right for me.
So thank you for good feedback, but no thank you if it’s just trying to ruin my mood.
I was so motivated at start, there was even good weather conditions; a bright and sunny day in Paris is unusual at this time of the year. On this Halloween, I kept failing but I brought you something anyway, check it out, you’ve been warned.
