    Wow! That’s a lot of being on the go hope you enjoyed it! Thank you. We’re still at the flat, the people who bought the furniture are still carrying it down to the pickup truck. Come on now, it was a misunderstanding and it got cleared up. How are you doing?

    I’d love to go to New Zealand to see LOTR locations and Hobbition! Definitely on the bucketlist. One day, one day. I’m fine without Australia for some reason though.

    Yup, I’ll do that today. Wow you have an action packed summer going on. That sounds so nice! I never had any courses at the seaside! (Then again, I was never really academic so I avoided all courses that weren’t absolutely mandatory for my program.) I hope you have a very nice (not too hot, not too cold, no rain) weather for this sea side excursion. And have a great time while you’re there! I think all ab meant was that you don’t need to wait for anybody to travel with, you can do it on your own in the present, like you already did. And that traveling is always a great opportunity to clear your mind and explore yourself as much as the new place, find the meaning of life and whatnot, leave behind any negative feelings you might be feeling for whatever reason. Or maybe ab meant something else and I’m just reading my own thoughts into the post, (and maybe meddling in something you don’t want meddled with, in which case I apologize.) Geee, I still feel like crap. I mean if it weren’t for the cough I would be okay, but somehow coughing all the time is very physically demanding and it makes me quite tired. And being congested gives me a headache by the end of the day and it’s simply annoying to be blowing my nose all the time. Annnnnyway, I really need to start doing some work today. Beside that, I also have a furniture pickup tonight. Thankfully with this last pickup, I’ll have sold everything from my old flat, so I can move on the schedule the renovations.... (random fact: my keyboard switched back from English in the middle of a word and autocorrected “renovation” to renoVatikán - aka. Vatican - modern technology never fails to impress)

    Daily rant: why is it so effing hot in this goddamn city that you can’t even tell if it’s just disgustingly hot you still have a fever. Also, why do I feel worse than I did yesterday? Why is my cough worse and should I go back to the doctors and when will it go away? It’s sooooo annooooooying.

    So I’m home and I went to see an on duty doctor (because general practitioner offices are closed for the long weekend) who said surprisingly sensible things. Apparently whatever viral infection I have I got it from sitting, standing and walking under AC systems and their dirty, unsanitary, compressed air. Yay. He told me to be patient because that’s how viral infections are, they take time to go away and there isn’t really any way to speed that up other than taking vitamins, throat drops and painkillers if I feel like I need it. He also said that it’s a modern day fantasy that getting ill can be fixed in one day, people need to sit their ass down and recover patiently and trust that the world won’t crumble over their heads if they stop running around for some days to rest. He also said that it’s an urban legend that hot tea is good for a sore throat because pouring any hot liquid down my inflamed throat was like running hot water on a burned hand. He also said that people are mistaken to rush and bring down any small fever, as ,in fact, a fever is the body’s natural and necessary way to root out the infection. And thus one should only take medicine for fever when it’s as high as 38.3-5C and causes moderate discomfort. Very unorthodox communication for a doctor but it was too logical to not sound true and authentic. I suppose I’m just too used to incompetent GPs who will stuff you with all the tablets a medicine producer asked them to endorse?

    Yup, yup we did, for an obscene amount of money, but we did. I’m hoping to see a doctor at home, but we have a bank holiday so it’s going to be an emergency adventure anyway. Thank you! Noooo, because you no longer give a crap about what everybody thinks and you are more self-confident and love yourself for who you are not who you should be. Or so I hear from acquaintances over 30. Come on, you are worth way more than that. You are great! Yup it really sucks. It’s about as bad as missing the flight in Paris was. But what are you gonna do? thanks!

    Well, I’m sick as a dog and sister is sick too though not as much as I am. I did push through yesterday’s tour, in spite of surely having fever, which was an utter trainwreck anyway (weather, organization, guide, etc). But now I woke up with chest pain and back pain when I breathe so I suppose I have contracted some respiratory infection. I’ll try to see a first aid person today and I also want to move up our flight to tonight, as I don’t see what I could do for two more days here. We also seem to be incapable of getting along and that’s kind of a strain with both of us being ill. I’m really sorry about it because it’s such a gorgeous place and we are missing out on so much. Thanks for the tips but right now I’m trying to figure out a way in which we can go home sooner and not even visit Dublin. Just take a coach from Belfast straight to Dublin airport.

    I’m in Ireland which is an absolutely beautiful island, but even that can’t make up for what a complete utter disaster this trip is. I just want to get home and curl up in my bed and cry for a week. And we have to survive two more days here. I don’t even know how that’s going to happen. I’m so sorry about your feeling that way. I can only repeat sidious. One jerk should not discourage you. We have all been there, we’ve all been counting on someone who ended up letting us down. I totally understand how much that sucks and how many negative feelings about yourself it spawns. But you must know that you are still you and you have time to settle and find the right person for you. Life doesn’t end at 30 or 35. You’ll have all the time to travel and settle down and all the rest you are concerned about. You can still live a full and happy life after your twenties. In fact, lots of people say they enjoy their thirties more. Twenties definitely seem to be my least great decade yet. But there’s so much life ahead of you.

    Yeah. We left home at 6am and I can’t wait to get to the hotel, eat some dinner and just sleep. Oh I’m sorry. Last time you mentioned him we were only entertaining the possibility that he might be a douchebag. I’m sorry it turned out that way. :/ I totally understand that you feel down, but do know you are still young and you’ll settle down in your own time with the right person.

    early flight, which is way better than partying students. But I’m still a zombie did you reach the gentleman after all? Is there any news from him?

    I must share with you people how proud i am of myself. I’m watching Dark in German with German subtitles. And it’s going quite alright. Just wow.

    ITS COLD! Well relatively. It’s a blissful 25C. And I know it’s only 8, but yesterday it was 29 by 7:30.

    By the time anybody would fix my AC it’d be late September. A cold wave is supposed to come tomorrow. And lord I hope it does because it’s 10pm and 32C outside.

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Midsommar Night Blues

    I can’t decide if it’s mysterious and enjoyable or aimless and irritating. I mean I would like to see some things starting to come together to believe that the show knows what it’s doing instead of just capitalizing on the atmosphere building and hoping it’ll take the audience’s mind off the plot. On the other hand, the human drama side of the story is quite well done, the acting is strong and the characterization is interesting yet still within the fence of realistic and relatable. I watched episodes 5-6 last night. Still waiting for the hook. Also there were a few bits that made

    I’m watching Dark. Very conflicted about it so far.

    Oh my... so with severe headaches, I got through the 35C weekend. It was bearable at home, but the moment I stepped out of my building... the heat hits you like a hammer. And 35C is the general air, if you stand in the sun, it’s like 40. And it comes with no sleep too, because it’s still 30C at midnight so I have to wake myself up around 4 to open windows and then wake myself up at 7ish again to close them. This way there’s some oxygen and I have a little control over the temperature inside, but it’s quite an exhausting routine. Anyway, I did some last minute sales shopping, didn’t manage to pick up too many items though because the sales section is mostly sold out and with the travel next week I didn’t want to spend too much on the new collection, especially that it’s still mostly summer clothing and I can’t wait for autumn. And I even managed to quick clean the flat and do laundry. Ironing never happened due to the heat. I’m counting on the cold wave that’s promised to Tuesday. After a tedious, 3-hour long 30C train-ride I’m currently in my 30C hotel room. I want 15C, 8 hours of sleep and rain. /daily rant

    Watch, Watched, Watching: Midsommar Night Blues

    I’m glad I’m not the only one. I generally really enjoy musicals, old Hollywood ones and actual live musicals as well. La La Land, to me, resembled neither. I could see the underlying aspiration, but it doesn’t even compare to them, in my opinion.

    Well I hope there’ll be more to come my barbies loved the horse riding and horse races my fair lady style. And of course she wouldn’t be a mini sith without a toy dragon and hophops nothing wrong with being a Jedi. It appears it was just one stray moth, at least I haven’t found more and after yesterday’s struggle, my flat is insect free for the most part. I should go and do some shopping.

    I also watch La La Land last night. Now that was a bad idea. I wouldn’t be able to say what that movie is about because really, it is about absolutely nothing, and even that little it’s trying to be about is completely far fetched and unrealistic to the point the it makes the film contradict itself. The acting is fine as long as the film isn’t breaking its back to be a musical for 10 minutes before it goes back to being a film. The actors are okay singers but the songs are as aimless as the story, there’s no catchy melody, they aren’t tear jerking or dynamic enough to dance to - and maybe thank goodness for that, because every time the actors try to dance or put on musical acting, the film becomes a trainwreck. It’s never established whether these scenes are their imagination or just random musical inserts for the sake of pretending this is a musical. (For which there’s way too much dialogue and television acting) it is also terrible awkward to be continuously pushed back and forth between exaggerated theatre acting and television acting and Emma Stone’s character’s acting (for both theatre and television roles - as I understood). The characters are, by the way, hardly relatable as we find out essentially nothing about their personalities and backgrounds, they are both stereotypical struggling artists who then magically succeed after a fierce-ish pep talk. All attempts to make them likable and/or relatable are quickly swept off the table. The one time they feel like real life people with depth and real life struggles is their argument over the surprise dinner. The rest of the film is essentially a awkward, overly colorful kiddy pool with ankle-deep water that’s too little for a swim and too much for a pleasant foot soak. Most supporting characters showed their faces once for a musical insert without any background, role or even a one dimensional personality. And we even had no name characters with no lines doing musical inserts for no reason with no purpose or impact or ability to build an atmosphere. The plot is essentially nonexistent, it could be condensed into a 45 minute skeleton for a 90 minute film and would still need coherence, completion and characterization. The conclusion is unrealistic and contradicts the rest of the film, takes away from the half-assed message they tried to convey, and has zero emotional impact (on me personally). Basically it was a horridly boring and sometimes irritating waste of two hours. /rant

    Rather late to the bandwagon, I just watched Bohemian Rhapsody and I’ve been bawling my eyes out on the last 20 minutes and the end credits.

    Also wtf is going on in my house today? I have a mutant fly, a dead moth in my closet. Is this some sort of revenge after my morning fruit fly genocide? It was too late anyway because the babies... developed? What the heck do insects do when they break out of their disgusting little shells to come to be? So I’m basically still left with a shitton of fruit flies. At least YouTube is not lacking in fruit fly trap tutorials.

    Yaaaaaay! I’m so glad you guys had a lovely time! And sure you missed mini sith. Did she get any honeymoon presents from her moms? Hope you get to rest after the flight too, traveling is tiring. So sweet of your gran to have done the house and baby sitting. How did it go, did mini sith exhaust her?

    HIIIIIII! how is that trip going? Or should I say, how is married life going? There are some sporadic drizzles but not much. We had a beautiful two weeks of 23-5C in July, but we are now back to 30ish, which is bearable. Things get bad when the daytime highest is 35+ and the nighttime lowest is 25. We are supposed to have some rain and a cold wave next week so I’m hopeful we’ll not get there, it was more than enough in June. Most definitely, if you ask me. The cringe and the awkwardness is just bone deep when a conversation is centered around politics. At least I try to stay away from the topic as much as it’s humanly possible and it still seeps into everything. I had one gin fizz yesterday and no dinner. My head was spinning for two hours. But generally if I take food with, I do very much enjoy iced cocktails in the summer
