Re: Latso's Q&A

I'm a sales guy, so i have a shitty business car atm (waiting for a new one..) with which i drive to work and travel around the country, it's a Dacia Logan.
The office is less than one km from home though.

About smoking - tbh i don't know what could be the mtivation for me to quit. I need to decide it and i believe i can do it, but to make this decision need smth to change in my routine.

Perhaps the day when i figure out my own business i might do that. I used to have my own business, which drowned during the recession, so now i'm working for a friend who has the ssame business and managed to stay on the surface. I gave him most the brands i was working, so now i'm quite confident with what i do and i rate myself a specialist in the field (it's packaging and quality control machinery for the food industry).

But i'm an employee, with a limited income obviously, which is smth i will change sooner or later.

Perhaps this could be the additional motivation for the change, despite that own business means more stress and more work, it's still a dramatic change in life, so it could help with getting rid of the habit.

About tennis - at 16 i really thought i might give it a shot, but things were complicated. I was living and playing abroad (Switzerland) and when we came back to Bulgaria (1993) it was a total mess, there were a handful of clubs in Sofia, the closest ones to my place were like over 1 hour with the public transport and we didn't have undergroud yet..

So it was tough, i went there a few times, no one was paying any attention, they didn't even care and i had to go to school meanhwile, so it was just disapointing.

In Geneva, after college i was on the bike, with my back pack, with the racquets, a tuna sandwich, a liter of ice tea and in 8 minutes at the courts.

We were 4 friends and we were playing from 2-3 pm to 11pm every day of the week (at 11pm the lights went off automatically, we probably would have stayed the nights too, that's how passionate we were), so from a joyful experience it went to a total disaster and struggle, which i didn't like, so i just quit.

I restarted playing probably 10 years later, around 2004 when the amateur tennis in Bulgaria was just starting to move and i have barely missed a few week end tournaments.

ACC - i dont know what ACC is tbh, please explain me, i asked the same in the ACC thread, no one bothered..

Because the OP loves these kind of threads

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

almost not at all.

the only few are - Levski in Champions league and Euro league, a couple futures in Sofia and i brought my elder son to the final of the Champions' tournament, which was actually awesome, i was impressed by both Sam Stosur and Simona Halep, was an actually pretty awesome match. The kid loved it as well.

But no, i'm not a huge fan of attending sport events tbh and there aren't that many in Sofia worth attending.

Oh, i was also at Bulgaria - Slovenia Euro qualies was it or smth in the recent past.
