The past month has been pretty much nothing but work. Rainy summer (which is the least of the problems), business crisis and well...forget what I told you about the nice new quiet place with fresh air.
I've been 'enjoying' the sounds of neighbour's renovation and since 2 days ago I'm also breathing the stench of a fresh paint or polish coming from the window. So it's either windows shut or toxic air.
Two times I've tried going to the beach to get some sun tan. Both times I only got about 30 minutes tops before the clouds were back to block the sun. The road to the beach is 30 minutes each way. Pointless.
Although, at least I got to read some while in the bus. I'll die fucking smart.)))
I mean, this all maze is of course pointless, and once you realize it it's harder to take shit from life, because to endure hardships with stoicism one needs an answer to 'what for'. My answer to this is only a negative one: to prevent something, not to achieve something. Sure, I try to make my life better while I stick around but that's like decorating a prison cell: doesn't mean you really like being locked up there.
So I've had almost no free time, even cooked less than usual, opting for quick snacks between work instead. Today I've decided to give me a break a little and here I am writing this useless post as par of my recreational time))
Freaking military confclicts: one in far-away Palestine, one in my own country...
They say think of somebody who has it worse than you and you'll feel better. Bullshit. I only feel better when the circumstances change for the better. I am very well aware of the fact people are suffering on this piece of rick every second. Perhaps this technique works on those who wear rose-tinted glasses and block out the sad reality life, who only get reminded there's suffering when it hits them directly.
So...whatever, nothing exciting to tell. But here's an entertaining picture:

Noisy upstairs neighbours? Don't get me started, I moved to my previous apartment because the one before that had some heavy elephants walking here and there all day and even at night. They also didn't seem to leave for work so there was no peace throughout the day. Which is horrible for me as I work from home and this is where I am at least 80% of the day, sometimes days in a row. And then the other neighbour also started doing renovation. Happy drilling days!
It's actually a big problem in Ukraine in general. Here everyody is doing a bt of renovation every now and then. If people had more money, they'd do it once and be done with that. But since they don't, they do little piece by little piece whenever they can afford. Also, they save on hiring professionals, so it's 1 guy working on his own for months on what could've been finished in a week. Then somebody else starts... Freaking annoying.
So yeah, I'm also dreaming of some far away place. It's just that I don't have a car. But of course I could take a loan. Just don't like debts of any kind. Especially not in this country. People who did that before this crisis now have to pay double the price as the dollar exchange rate rose. Same happened in 2008.
People are such shit lots of them. I mean, one is making noise starting from 8 in the morning and on weekends when it's against the law, the other will turn on the music so loud you can feel it vibrating in the ground, and that's coming from the other house. Still others will watch TV so loud you can actually hear word for word what it is they're watching. I don't know why my mother bothered to teach me to consider people around since they more often than not don't give a rat's ass and deserve to be treated the same way.
Your blog and YouTube videos make life a tad more bearable and I've got to thank you for making such a public contribution.
Thank you. :)
