Almost normal day. I was at the gym in the morning, a bit late, but I was lucky that it was empty anyway. This time I could finish all my upper body exercises that I had struggled with the last times. Maybe thanks to the huge and protein-rich pizza I had yesterday.
At work I am still waiting for this e-mail with information. I hate waiting and I know that some other people are also waiting for replys… there wasn’t much to do, this is the weeks of calm before the circle of doom starts again.
I played two games of Trails of Tucana today. It’s okayish but I am glad I didn’t buy that game.
I also could read a bit, watch an episode of the next season of White Lotus (hello Italy) and we watched the movie Moonrise Kingdom. I liked it but I also didn’t like it because of the child romance in it. This was very awkward.
Now off to bed. I am dreading tomorrow. Panka has a small operation, a growth on her foot will be removed. It’s nothing big and what makes me really sad is not giving her breakfast in the morning. I think there was a time in her life when she didn’t have enough food, so it breaks my heart to let her be hungry. She doesn’t understand that it is for her best, so that the growth doesn’t turn into something bad. Poor girl. I am glad when tomorrow everything is over and she is at home again.
Again I didn’t find time to write my post before evening.
Finally no rain yesterday and a bit of sun at noon, this was nice. I went with my mother for a walk and got the newest family gossip. My great-uncle, my grandmas brother, died. I didn’t know him that well, as a kid I spent some time with his family. Apparently, he said one month before that he wanted to die soon. He wasn’t ill on one big thing but I guess he had many different health things that bothered him. I am sad for my grandma, he was her younger brother. The other younger brother is „a kind of dead“, he has sever Alzheimers and lives in a nursing home. Both her children are also dead, it is so sad that she has to see everyone go. She lives with her son-in-law (widower) and I hope that she won’t survive him. I’m thinking about whether I should visit her again but it is a long way, difficult with not speaking Polish that well and they don’t like having guests that much anyway. Well, both are not dead and there’s already talk about the appartment. Nobody really knows to whom the appartment belongs (my uncle paid for it, but only my grandma was allowed to officially buy it). I just really would like to know if I have to mentally prepare that I get the appartment, since I am grandmas next heir. I hope not, this would entangle just too my bureaucracy in a foreign country.
Yesterday I finished the first season of White Lotus. What a wild ride. The show was way better than I thought it would be.
In the evening, I was a the concert of Long Distance Calling. A German band whose songs don’t have vocals. The previous act was unfortunately very boring, I think I have never been so annoyed with a pre-act. I wish concert wouldn’t have pre-acts at all, or at least give schedules when the main act is due. The concert of LDC was nice, the music reminded me a bit of the soundtrack of This War of Mine. I only wish those concerts had seating oppurtinities, I’d prefer to listen to such music will sitting/lying. But I am a minority in this case.
Weird thing: I had my loops quiet for the first time at a concert. It was good with the music, not too loud and I could hear the nuances still pretty well (I like to focus on the guitar at concerts). But I also could her other people talking so damn well, I was thinking „what is happening, why is everyone talking SO LOUD, the band must hear them!“. But without loops one could barely hear people speaking. Woah, what an experience. It’s usually hard for me to ignore background noice when people are talking, with these loops it’s much easier. I have to keep this in mind when I am at a bury restaurant but still want to talk with my people at the table.
A bit on the ill side today as my throat is a itchy and just feels ill. I hope my body will be able to defend this infection before it gets worse.
At work there isn’t much to do right now. Still didn’t get a reply to an important e-mail, so I’m doing upkeeping and trying to compose a very important and long e-mail. My colleague insists that I take a sick day because I haven’t been feeling well in the last time. It’s nice to have a work environment where everybody is looking out for each other.
I tried again to get around or kill the zombies in The Last of Us and didn’t manage it again. Ugh, so frustrating and it feels like stupid work. At this point I am happy that I didn’t buy the game. Then I switched to Okami which I bought a couple of months (years?) ago in sale. I played it on the Nintendo Wii in the elder days, in the years of yore, but then was suffocated under my life following completly apart. Well, today it brought me joyful colors, fun and a possibility to kill my enemys. Oh and quickly back to The Last of Us: I finished season one of the tv show. I think without the great actors I would have found the show rather boring. But it is a nice change for apocalyptic plots to focus on some characters that aren’t relevant for the rest of the show.
Still reading the Sanderson book about Tress. It’s a standalone but this is also a Cosmere book and I think this is the first time, that one of Sandersons books drips of references to the Cosmere? I really enjoy this book so far. Sanderson is such a great writer, at least for my tastes.
We just finished watching It Comes At Night. Well, the movie shouldn’t be marketed as horror movies, it’s more of a psychological drama. And a dog dies. The movies was okayish but all in all it’s forgettable. I’m glad I didn’t pay for it, I got the movie from the library. And let’s hope that the library bus will finally be here again tomorrow. The bus has been under repair for 3 or 4 weeks now.
