The date of my last post is 08.10.2017. Exactly 140 days ago.
It is difficult to write a catch-up post on a period of my life where nothing changed too drastically, yet I, myself, have drastically changed.
I have travelled to 5 cities. I have purchased 1 bike and 1 iPhone. I have been to about 10 concerts. I have drunk around 70 litres of coffee. Probably similar amount of organic wine. I became a raw vegan. I have drunkenly stolen and later returned 1 coffee pouring kettle. I got 0 new tattoos. I didn’t go home for Christmas for the first time. I almost signed up for a half-marathon. I lost 2 friends. I made 16 new friends. I met 3 male representatives of the human species who I thought could become a more regular part of my life but they haven’t. I started and immediately dropped learning Italian and Korean again. I stopped drinking coffee and alcohol. I have not gone back to bouldering just yet.
The last months of 2017 filled with fun, friends, filter coffee and natural organic wine. There was a lot of taxi riding and taxi calling. There were Disney watching sessions and coffee shop catch up sessions. There were many laughs and quite a few cries. There was a lot of pasta eating and some wall painting. I was happy in a haze of a drunken hour that lasted for about 2 months and left me rather miserable (but I am not now).
Having had enough of the haze I have decided to go and spend New Year’s Eve in the Czech mountains with people who are very close to me. Ever since I am a new changed person. Maybe it was the snow, the mountain air, the shiba inu puppy I met there, the Beherovka, the sitting naked in a sauna with some of my best friends, the Cards Against Humanity or I don’t know what but I came back happy, refreshed and ready to fucking live.
If you know anything about me you would know I am (was) a professional moaner. A complainer. Almost a life hater. In 3 days of that mountain cottage regiment of eating cheese and sausages, drinking beer and some way too sweet liquors made me into a life lover, a go-getter, an at-strangers-smiler, an overall content and a much less grumpy person.
Just wait until I hang a huge LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH poster in my room! (jk, this will never happen)
The first 2 months of this year have been pretty fantastic. I’ve been places, made more new friends, met no new lovers, received some good news about my job and some not so good about my health. A high school bestie came to visit and in 3 days I am leaving to Spain with an old job bestie. Met another old job bestie for brunch today. The sun is shining, it’s cold as balls but the air is fresh and crisp. I am happy.
Yes, you read that right. I am HAPPY.
And I am planning to write again!
And maybe this year I will get a dog.
