In no particular order.
10. Reflection. Thinking about where I’ve been, where I am now and where I want to go.
9. Water. I’m drinking so much hot tea and honeywater that my lips are going all Jolie on me.
8. Eat awesome things. I can’t eat lame things because I don’t have the energy for it.
7. Diving into my crazy hobbies. I have so much time to just memorize everything in the world now.
6. Eat, again. I bought lots of junk food from ÖoB. T’was awesome.
5. Hanging out with grandma. We’re just very good at laughing together.
4. Music. I can’t sing with this sore throat, but I’ve been compensating by playing piano.
3. Ideas for passing time. Like drawing on planes.
2. Lots of time for practising quasi-necessary things. Like transforming hoodies into a laptop carrier.
1. More time to watch Barcelona games.
Hellu. Next time at the restaurant, you should try the Bibimbap with entrecõte. It is the best food for an empty stomach.
Let me tell you about him. So at four in the fudging morning I get really sick and he gets up and makes me tea for an hour until I can relax and fall back to sleep. He makes me dinner and then sleeps on the couch so I can get more space for myself and he doesn’t get sick. When I get horrible nightmares at four in the morning (again) I go out into the living room and ask him to hold me, and so he does. I would’ve never been feeling so much better so fast without him. There are, of course, so many more things that make him awesome. But these past two days, that’s what I’ve been truly grateful for. Oh, and he also taught me that it’s OK to be sick… something I usually don’t tolerate because I rarely get sick. But thank you, it is OK to feel weak sometimes and do nothing.
I like working, but I think a combination of working too hard and not taking the time to just relax hit me. Last week I went to three parties, swam a kilometer every weekday, went climbing for three hours on Sunday, worked all my shifts at the restaurant and then some. Even now when I’m supposed to relax I’m blogging, writing e-mails, looking at language exams and working on stories for some of my favourite publications. I love me some work, but I have to get more hobbies to do. I’ve already started some sketch work and it’s coming out pretty decent.
We went climbing today. Filip was awesome at it. That is all. No, it was fun. I was as speed-climber and Filip had good technique KA-pow.
We are creatures of habit and I’m figuring out how to automatically do things I would otherwise never do by just making them routine. After breakfast, I got on the sub with Filip who was going to work and got off at Skanstull. There I swam 2 km, had a 20 min bikramyoga session and then went back to Filip’s. I did some sketch-art, played Mario Kart until the controller’s battery ran out and listened to some podcasts. Life can’t just be consumed by one single thing (such as the restaurant). I need to have other things to do, to fall back on and to be passionate about so I don’t procrastinate life by being on reddit. Reddit is fine and has its place sometimes, but everything in moderation except kissing.
Speaking of kissing (oh my segway into Valentine’s Day is sooo smooth) Filip and I spent it at home eating chocolate, candy, chips, chocolate pudding, triple burgers and the sorts. I had a small crisis that Filip helped me from by just holding my hands. Herro Firip if you read a dis, I love you and now I’m going to continue watching House of Cards. Then I’ll get back to work for real.
Sushi at the restaurant with Andris, fake bar-hopping with him + Filip and then being at Collage for hours. It was fun in a weird way. At one point I got a very stupid idea, then everything went dark and I realized I had acted on said stupid idea and I thought I was going to get reported to the police, but luckily some few words I picked up in chem class got me out of it. Also, I really don’t think they would’ve done it anyways.
DMX is one of those people who – no matter if he’s mad, sad or glad – most of the time makes me smile. God fudging damnit I love his style.
