The only one, unique queen of f***ing everything

It has waited for me in the office since Thursday (as I was on my short break last week). Very cool, and very sweet.

A day in Gdańsk. With my mom. ❤ ❤ ❤

Through the years and miles between us  it’s been a long and lonely ride
But if I got a call in the dead of the night  I'd be right by your side

A friend of a friend asked for my telephone number on Facebook today. We’ve met maybe 3 or 4 times over years. And straight away she have asked if we could speak privately. And then I knew. It was about my/our friend. 

And it was a disturbing call, and some pretty worrisome, shitty, serious stuff. 

When exactly we all have been informed that adulthood is not so awesome, actually ? I think I might have skipped that class. 

And in non food related news: holiday’s request sent and accepted.

Weekend. 2 working days aaaand another 5 days LONG weekend ;D

August. You are good!

I’ve posted it once Tumblr. Little over 2 years ago. 
It is this time again. When red bell pepper is crazy cheap (well, it begins to be anyway)  - so perfect time to start eating this autumnal ambrosia ;D

So..

My mom just called. And I’m hyped.

She will come to Gdansk next Monday. 

Thing is, dear Tumblr friends - my life was always complicated. On many levels. And..  it just gets messier as you go older apparently.  And to keep it short: I am totally cool with my mom being with someone. I just got problems when I think that person is not what I think my mom deserves.

So yes, I might have been a bit over excited when I heard that there’s trouble in paradise (sic) and instead of spending just 1 day with me in Gdansk and a week with him somewhere else on the coast she will come here alone and spend summer with me (instead of planned autumn) *. And we will have some of that good ol’ times  vibe. The vibe we have most of our lives. That “us two against the world” kind of thing. 

* thing is, she knows I’m not the fan, and we are on very, very different levels, so that is why original plans were like this 

Oh lord how I’ve missed that! 

Tomorrow I will try to get 2 days off next week, so with 15th being a bank holiday we would have at least 5 days together. I’m pumped. I’m hyped. I’m happy! 

So, I just got my first “omfg IT’S AMAZING, IT’S MY LIFE” quote/song from new Gaslight album and it has made me weep inside a little..

Personal update

  1. July went fast. Like crazy fast. I had plans. They all ended up in beer bottles drunk with colleges  at the beach. Too many beer bottles.. 
  2. I have spent now 6 months in Gdańsk. 6 months! It feels like 2, maybe 3. Again; plans I have had… Most of them unrealized. 
  3. I was about to change my studio and actually rent a place with someone, and it’s still a pending thing, I have few names from work (but then: work & live with the same people ? nah); I don’t really want to live with students, and I’m not sure I actually want to live with some strangers… so, for now, I am staying where I am. I keep my eye on renting ads though.
  4. My running was non existing basically. And this one is changing. I mean, I was running on 29.07 and today morning. Them endorphins. Them perfect  endorphins! 
  5. The curse/blessing of my life: I met people, people who confide their feelings and secrets in me. And I know their stories, and it feels fantastic to hear from someone that it helped, just talking to me, but man, some heavy stuff out there, some pretty heavy, unfair stuff going in humans lives.. and it stays in me, stays with me… 
  6. I think, because of this fast speeding time I am burning bridges of my ‘old’ life. And I need to seriously work on that..
  7. I’m tanned! Not as much as when I was living in Rome, but still it looks pretty OK. And I didn’t spend on a beach (in full sun) that much time anyway!

August:

  • running, running, running
  • see my mom (here up in the north)
  • balancing social life with actual healthy life
  • and finally clean my apartment from all that sand I keep bringing from the beach!
  • and I need to take my bike to the service (again, sand, in my chain = no good, no good)

Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.
