“The only person you can’t learn from is yourself” — Anonymous

“The Monk”, portrait of the author by Milica Popović

I’m not here to make money. Although some of my stories are behind a paywall, it’s more to make up $5 for the Medium subscription 😃. I consider writing a hobby, a welcome distraction from everyday worries, and a way to clear my mind by thinking aloud. Also, I’m not a writer: I just like to write sometimes, that’s all. All things that I write about are my personal opinions, nothing more. I’ll do some research on the topics I cover, but not too much. Otherwise, it would just feel like work and won’t be any fun.

I’m also here to connect with kindred souls, since I find people here to be more of my ilk than elsewhere.

A psychologist by education, software engineer by profession, creator at heart. Above all, I like learning and doing creative things.

This is not a biography, since I don’t care for those. Instead, I’d like to talk about what’s on my mind, I find that’s what’s important.

My interests are broad (software, writing, comics, music, documentaries, sports, psychology, sociology, philosophy, life, Universe, Nature, to name just a few, in no particular order), sometimes to the detriment of my profession/health 😃. I find purpose in learning and knowing, exploring and contemplating what surrounds me.

Above all, I value honesty, integrity, authenticity, and thoughtfulness. It’s not to say that I haven’t done some stupid and reckless things in the past, but today I’m trying, with all my powers, not to repeat them.

I strongly believe that “The unexamined life is not worth living”, as the saying goes.

No, I don’t have anything to hide. But, I’m a big believer in separating creations from the creator’s biography. I never watch “How it’s made…” shows about movies, nor do I like reading biographies of writers, painters, other creators. It somehow makes it trivial and most often, subconsciously, degrades my opinion of their creations.

Then, why the “About me” article? Well, I’d still like people to read what I have to offer…

Some of my stories that I’d like to highlight:

  • Polojko.com — My personal site, currently under construction
  • Twitter — Mostly for Medium stories
  • Youtube — Some of the music that I’ve created

Keep reading! Don’t let all those wonderful things written in books be hidden forever!
