Saturday, June 28

I liked last Friday. It was a really nice day. At least for five reasons:

-) one: yesterday we learnt that our boss liked the programme very much and there are huge changes that very soon the radio youth will set sail on the air. The revolution is to begin I shall say. New comes… winds of change… etc. Inside me I am happy as a child. I could contemplate this news since yesterday morning. On Friday I was too tired – I ate KFC supper and went to bed.

-) two: I took the ID photograph – I look quite handsome and I did not smile stupiditly this time. So all the formalities are done. If everything goes well, I will have my new identity card soon.

-) three: I have a new Playboy. Some things to read and of course the new playmate. After boring Kayah there’s something to look at.

-) four: I did about 30 kilometers on my bike… no injuries, no side effects and I avoided two hits – some idiots tried to overtake me driving a few centimeters from me. And I visited my sister – it’s always a pleasant thing. The kids were a bit nasty, but this is normal. My sister is learning to drive and I think she has swallowed the bug. I hope that very soon she will have a chance to hit her brother on a bike.

-) five (the most important agas): finaly I met Joanne. Three weeks of postponig, but at last we made it. And it was so nice. It does not matter that I had to wait for almost an hour (she had a good excuse) – it was worth it. At lest I read half of the book. First we sat on a bench in the library, then we went for quite a long walk… lots of talking. It is really nice to spend some time with beautiful, smiled and talking a lot girl. I have no idea what is going to happen now, but I am not thinking about it now. She will have to give me back the photos and CD’s… and that’s optimistic for me.

oh... and I would add listetning to new Annie Lennox. This is top class music. A beautiful thing, especially in the evening – the sounds fill in my small room fantastic. Comparing with Annie, new Madonna is so pale.

Friday Five (very late one)

1. What's one thing you've always wanted to do, but never have?

If I thought about it more carefully I’d propably found a few thing. Considering things I haven’t managed to do and I regret it now… that would be not completing my musical education. Hmm… On one hand it was a good decision, but… And considering things I wish I would do… that propably would be going on a trip alone. I have no courage to do it now, but I still have time. I hope there’s a long time ahead of me.

2. When someone asks your opinion about a new haircut/outfit/etc, are you always honest?

Not always. White lies are maybe a bit dishonest, but why should I distroy somebody’s mood just because I don’t like something or something makes me funny. I still regret one outburst of laugh when I saw my ex-girlfriend in her new haircut. It was a shock – I just could not resist. Maybe I would tell the truth to my good friend, something like: “listen, don’t go out like that, because you look like a jerk”, but… there’re too many buts in here. Anyway I don’t say what I think always. Sometimes it is better to bite things back.

3. Have you ever found out something about a friend and then wished you hadn't? What happened?

I think I wish I hadn’t known why my first big love left me. Her best friend was very loyal and she told me what was going on. But at that time it would be much better to live without that knowledge. Now I don’t really care. I don’t know if it’s a good answer, because the word “friend” did not fit Anna at all. Besides I think nothing like that has happened to me later.

4. If you could live in any fictional world (from a book/movie/game/etc.) which would it be and why?

I’ve always been scared by human mortality. From time to time, when some sad things happen, I think I could risk the course of immortality. I could live in a world where I’d be immortal. Of course later I think that is a bit stupid and childish, but this thought sometimes comes back. There are plenty of more ideas. Surely I would like to live in Bullerbyn for some time.

5. What's one talent/skill you don't have but always wanted?

I wish I was a great jazz pianist. And that is all I have to say.


Friday, September 27

I dumped 8 bags of papers and newspapers yesterday. It was hard to get rid of some of these things, but it was much nicer to take a look at some of them. I’m really sentimental and it’s a really sorrow to part with it all. There were some of my very old English language homework, on which my teacher had written “horror” with her red pencil… there were some very old school notes, my test graduation exam of which I got B… There was even this small yellow piece of paper on which J. wrote me her address on the day we met. There was even my old diary. Hmm… A lot of things happened then... So I had to make some really difficult decisions what stays and what goes to the history dump. Certainly more than should left, but can I really help it?
I generally don't like people giving out leaflets, but yesterday a lady gave out not only them but some lovely smiles as well. I got one of them, and at once the world became nicer and happier.

it was Friday

Yesterday wasn’t really a „writing day”. I did not feel like doing a lot. Well, maybe not exactly, but when I sat by the keyboard in the evening, I had problems with the first sentence. Hmm… But it was a nice Friday. Maybe it was the weather? I am usually not affected by the weather, but it sometimes changes my mood. Generally I am satisfied, that I muster some energy up and did everything I wanted to do. After morning cleaning up I spent some time preparing English classes. M. did not show up today (again), which means that his declarations about how much he’s going to work and study, were just words. You may get nervous, don’t you? But I don’t feel like carrying about it – it’s his business and his exam. What can a teacher do without will of his student? Not much – you can’t learn a language, working just a bit on the lessons.
I finally have some money. Last week, if I may use the pilot slang, was flying just with vapours. I had to eat some savings, to pay for copying and food. I was lucky to have some frozen food, powder potato pancakes and some potatoes as well. I could not starve. But it’s the end of the month and it is much better. On the occasion I eat spicy fish in my favourite Asian bar. Well, I wanted the chicken, but I think I was a bit misunderstood. Anyway the time of savings are not over, as all the money will probably pay my bills and it won’t be enough.
Well – I spent the evening with some nice people at work. I fought quite long against myself - go or not to go – but I thought I must win with my laziness. These are somehow my duties. Because of this bad day the moods there weren’t spectacular. But we had some nice tea (to wash the cups you need to go to the other side of the building and of course I had to do that). E. was coming back in a company car, but I did not want to risk that the driver won’t go my way, so I used the bus and went alone…. Anyway… J. is coming back on Monday, so I may only demonstrate the big happiness: hurray!

quotation of the day:

Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.
(Henri Bergson)
Friday Five

1. What are your favourite ways to relax and unwind?

I think the best place for me to relax is my bathtub. When I am tired or angry or simply stressed I take a book, make a cup of tea or have a glass of wine and go take a bath. After an hour of enjoying hot water I am a changed man. Well, and I think that a long walk around a park or a forest is something I like. Besides there is no better place to relax that the arms of your beloved one.

2. What do you do the moment you get home from work/school/errands?

Throw he keys somewhere so I could never find them again andI turn on the computer to check my e-mail.

3. What are your favourite aroma therapeutic smells?

I think lemon or Roman chamomile are the nicest, but the second one is really expensive. The one I used very often is a combination of some smells, but I don’t really know what is in there.

4. Do you feel more relaxed with a group of friends or hanging out by yourself?

It depends on the mood. I live alone, so I don’t mind staying alone, but of course you can’t live like that all the time. I like meeting people from time to time and I feel very good just talking and laughing and simply being among friends. But living with some people is not relaxing. I used to have a roommate and moving out was the best thing to do.

5. What is something that you feel is relaxing but most people don't?

I know it will sound very strange. My main interest of the Third Reich are concentration camps. I’ve been doing some guiding for quite a long time, and there is no quieter and calm place than a place of extermination. This is of course very sad, but after so long time you stopped noticing that and this is just a part of your job. Walking there alone for hours clears my mind from everything useless and unimportant and just makes me think clearly.

quiotation of the day:

Whoever said, It's not whether you win or lose that counts, probably lost.
(Martina Navratilova)
0,001 second – that is nothing, something imperceptible and in fact it is the time we don’t really think about it – an eye wink lasts longer than that. And Mr Frenchman lost World Championship because of that, and it was on a 1000 meters. I would be mad. Well, Mr Frenchman was mad, in deed.
