This morning I finally listened to some Israeli music again. When my phone died in August on the plane from Budapest to Oslo, I lost all my Hebrew songs, and the last time I listened to some was in September during one of my workouts at Blink Fitness in Woodside, Queens. I really missed these songs, and I’m really missing Tel Aviv… I wish I could go back for Purim this year but it is kinda impossible in this new job now 😦
I got a new task this week, but the directions are not that straightforward. No manual, no clear-cut rules, just figure it out. On one hand, I love this creative freedom. On the other hand, however, I don’t wanna mess up due to lack of pointers!
I have to be done by tomorrow so I canceled my date too. It’s a funny business anyway. I know this guy from an app that I used for maybe a week almost a year ago, and we still haven’t met (or talked for a long time). Now he remembered me again and so he messaged me. Since I am human with certain needs, I was like what the heck, let’s meet for a coffee. Then he suggested we met at his place for wine or shots (palinka). When I asked him, who did he think I was, he was like “oh it’s not what you think”. Yeah, dude, and I was born yesterday… Annnyway, I think we are going to meet sometime, but I’d rather focus on my work this week.
Also, I’m getting kinda excited about this place. Today I met another co-worker of mine who is working abroad now but visited home, and she is so nice and cute, too. Whenever I talk with these people, I finally don’t feel the need to justify or explain my every sentence or thought, and I don’t feel as if I was from a different planet. Yeah, sure, there are some very ambitious people who’d throw me under the bus without thinking about it even for a second, and maybe all of them are like that but I want to enjoy thinking otherwise – at least for a while 🙂
