Yo yo yo! Wassup fam!? It has been two whole-ass months since my last entry. The more I say I’ll get back to it, the longer I actually take in coming back.

In these past two months quite a lot of things have happened. Most important: I went to Madrid and got my special flight permit back to Armenia. On September 12th flew back to my homeland. In the three weeks since then got my new passport and right now I’m 2 days away from getting my military service release papers, after which I should FINALLY be a 💯 free man!

Coming back to my REAL home is making a very big difference and impact on my body, mind and soul. It’s like I finally found some peace after it was eating away at my very being for the last few years living among gypsies and lowlifes of all sorts. Yes, Barcelona is a very nice plice for living the easy life, while paying the chill price in the form of taxes, but the toll it takes on somebody like me is just not worth it. There is sooo much to do and act upon that it irritated me that I couldn’t do jack all about them. I’ve got a whole country to myself called Armenia, so I wasn’t going to waste away my life working for another, be it Spain, the Netherlands, or whoever.

Anyho’, things are like this right now. Currently working from the summer house near a village we bought a couple of years back. My good fortune has it that the telephone and 4G antennas are right above my house, so I can work comfortably as if I were in the center of the capital itself. Internet is cheap, so are all the other living expenses. Although, if you’re not careful these assholes will try and overcharge you. That’s how “smart” these countrymen of mine think they are.

They’ll talk all nice and shit but still stab you in the back for pennies. These people are starving for some pennies. Deplorable. Let’s see if I can change that. If it continues with this mentality then this country will be done for in the near future. This country ain’t dissapearing on my watch. On the topic of corruption I’ll write a dedicated post to outline all my experiences in detail. Stay tuned!

Regarding other topics, I’m looking to settle in the country, little by little. Adapting is going better than expected, but I’m still finding some difficulty to communicate because my Armenian is not as good as I’d like it to be. No worries though, I’ll slowly come to it.

Gotta figure out the task of finding a home in the capital, taking care of the home and field in Nurnus, the quick trip to Russia, my online agency (which I finally restarted), taxes, finding a wife… as you can see, many things left to be taken care of.

Little by little.

We’re back in a month of August. MY favorite month of the year! MY month! It just FEELS right!

Woke up feeling good at around 8:45AM, but decided to nap a bit further, so ended up waking at 12PM. I’ve been sleeping better now that I’m sleeping in my old bedroom again. A few months ago I switched to the one next to the bathroom, but since the heat started again I haven’t been sleeping all that well. Seems like my father and his wife going on vacation has done me a big favor.

Back to the usual; it’s working time. Gotta advance an important project, then get another one near completion, so I can get both their invoices paid and lighten my debts a bit. It’s stressing me out quite a bit so I’d like to get it resolved ASAP. Also, I’ve got to save up some money for September, which is when I’d like to travel to Armenia and potentially get my military service and passport worked out. Here is hoping for the best.

In regards to the social life, all is good. A few days ago saw my girlfriend, then went to see my good friend, and then came back to hammer out some more work. Also, I’ve been working and having deep conversations with a good friend of mine who came back from the Netherlands to stay and live in Barcelona. He took a big step but confident it was the right step for him and the next chapter in his life.

So yeah, that is pretty much it. Gonna take this day easy with some Age Of Empires 2 playing after I advance the two projects to a considerable degree.

See ya!

I know, I know. I’ve been constantly dissapearing for long periods of time. I’ll try to be more consistent, but I won’t promise anything! 😹

Anyho’, it goes without saying I’ve been busy and distracted all at the same time! Staying focused is sometimes hard to do when many things need my attention. And all those things are pretty important at that too! Organization is key. Very much KEY.

I had been looking at using Gantt charts for better organization, but then I realized I’ve been saying that with every other tool out there which I didn’t end up giving much use at all in the end. Whatever my organizational needs are, if I can’t do it with a simple Notepad then I won’t be able to do it with any tool.

So yeah, I’ve been doing this, and I’ve been doing that. I’ve been keeping in touch with friends and family, started going out again after recovering from da faken covid, girlfriend came back to Barcelona from Venezuela, I got back to full-time working on projects (old and new), started regularly going back to training (although the last two days have been occupied by work), dad went back to Armenia, I might also go back to Armenia to solve my military service issue and get my new passport in September since my cousing called me and kinda confirmed the military service amnesty looks to be legit without posing problems, etc.

Yep, that’s about it for today. Gonna hammer a few more hours of work and head home. I’ve been up since and working since the first moment at 7AM, meeting at 10AM, home chores until 1PM, gone back to the center for getting more work done until now, got a couple more meetings in at 5:45PM and 8PM.

See ya in the next one!

Hey there, buko! It’s been another week and a half since the last post. Lots happened. Like partying with friends, getting infected with covid, reforms my appartment again, taking on lots of projects, etc..

Needless to say, I’m currently buried in a lot of work to do, so I won’t be spending time going into detail. All I’ll say is that I’m almost recovered from my infection and these coming days will be full of celebration to make up for the suffering.

Without further ado, dale gas!

Woke up early for a change 😹. Got up, felt tired as shit, but there was no way in hell I could go back to sleep while being soaked wet in sweat and the heatwave hitting me at the same time as a air stream was hitting my sweaty body. That’s uncomfortable and I would definitely catch a cold. So, I got up and took a nice shower. Grabbed me some coffee and sat down in front of the laptop to do some work, although wasn’t productive at all.

10:30AM came around so I decided to at least make some good use of the morning and went to my boxing gym, Club Boxa Sant Adrià, to get some light workout done. Ended up doing 8 rounds of sparring, although light. Got some sweat out and burnt of some energy. Came back home, took a noice shower and again in front of my laptop writing these lines.

Gotta be productive for the rest of the day, so I’ll add more later tonight.

Woke up a bit late cuz I stayed up until 4 doing some work and photo editing for my friends. On Sunday we went to the Bunkers Del Carmel to watch the sunset and hang out together for some quality friends time. I used the chance to take some amazing photos of us. Take a look at some of them:

On Saturday wen on with my day by doing some work, then meeting with my friend Michael who’s on vacation from Madrid for a few days here in Barcelona. We went to the beach, swam for the first time since last year, got some exercises in at the beach gym, then afterwards went on to hang out with my friends at Passeig Del Born, which is famous for the many bars and the nightlife. The whole place was packed to the brim! Polic eventually routed everybody out though.

On Sunday spent time at home organzing my clothes, my room and my office, and afterwards went to Bunkers Del Carmel, of which you already saw the photos. We hanged out there and then Yasir and me went to the beach. We stayed for a bit and expected some friedns to come over, but they didn’t, so we went back home. As usual, on our way to the bus station Yasir and me talk and share our thoughts. It’s nice to have close friends like that with whom you can talk with trust.

Then Monday woke up again a bit lateish, but went straight to work. A bit later hit the gym, did some more work, some late night photo editing, series watching and finally sleeping.

And here we are; Tuesday June 15th of 2021. Time sure flies by! Went to the technical job interview, met with my friend from Madrid, hit the gym for some “light” workout, on my way back home saw a very disgusting show of homosexuals performing sex acts on stage at the plaza/park of Sant Adria De Besòs in front of kids. How disgusting can these people be? Very, as they show.

Anyways, here I am, doing some more work before going to sleep. See ya on the next one.

I love Fridays! I always wake up happy because I know there is an early One Piece leaked manga chapter waiting for me to be read. I wake up feeling great, quickly grab a coffee, sit down behind my laptop and start reading the chapter taking my time. feelsgoodman.jpg

Regarding the rest, here we are. Gotta make some dough. Not enough time to get stuff done. But today I’m not going anywhere, so might as well give it my all with my work and get a couple of tasks out of the way.

Without further ado, on with the day.

Woke up early a bit before 8AM feeling a little bit worse than yesterday. My fever has worsened, but I expect to be able to make it to the job interview next to Sants. The guy who put me in contact with the company got the covid, so he won’t be accompanying me. In any other case I’d have waited to go next week with him, but we’ve been postponing this interview for several weeks now, so I’d rather get it out of my way.

Anyho’, it’s good to wake up early to get more work done. Drank some tea accompanied by some russian pastries and also grabbed a coffee to jumpstart my brain. Getting stuff done is AMAZIN’!

Nothing much else to report. Looking forward to getting this day over with. See ya later.

Woke up again lateish, and feeling sick. Eating the cold watermelon on Monday was a mistake. And drinking cold water, plus sleeping with the windows opens and current air hitting me didn’t help either.

Anyho’, no bitching to me though. Gotta keep working regardless. Gotta keep going to the gym and go to the work interview tomorrow afternoon. I’ll deal with the cold the best way I know how: with Frenadol, lots of drinking tea and clothing with several layers in this hot summer so I can sweat this one out! Ain’t nothing stoping me! 💪

So yeah, another day for getting stuff done. And talking about getting stuff done, there are several immediate things waiting for me to take care of, so see ya!
