Another day, another dollar… and the car of my friend, who came from London for a paperwork, towed away! 😹
What a morning! Good thing we woke up early and were able to get the paperwork done quickly. We grabbed breakfast afterwards, took a taxi and got the car out of the impound.

We decided to have one more paperwork done with the time available, so we went and made the request for the Sanity card for my friend too. After that, with the little time left, we decided to go to the beach of Badalona for a bit of wandering.

A short while ago my friend dropped me off and he went on to the airport to catch his flight back home to London.

It was good to see him again, and I hope to see him again soon!

We’re past the first half of the month. Still plenty of work to do and complete. Still plenty of payments to make and invoices to collect.

I woke up early with the alarm, but decided it would be much better if I let my body rest properly instead of forcing myself out of the bed. I wasn’t feeling all too good to get up and I could already see myself suffering through the day if I had gotten up early. So I stayed in bed for a few more hours until half hour ago. #TotallyWorthIt

Feeling kind of good. Looking forward to finishing a couple of projects this week, for a friend to come over for a night from London, for my chick to come over and stay at mine for movie night and spending the night, for to start actively doing sports again and staying healthy, for organizing a night together with friends for drinking and a bit of partying, because everything is closed lol.

Let’s continue.

Sunday Funday! Woke up feeling rested and well. Took it quite easy, just watching some Sumo videos of the day from Japan!

After a little bit got up, drank coffee, ate something, cleanup up the kitchen a bit, shaved, took a shower and went to meet with friends and go to the beach! ☀

It was quite the sunny day! We enjoyed walking up and down the beachline, eating some chocolate pancakes and taking nice pictures. 😊

Afterwards went back home with my Spanish friend to have some dinner and watch funny Youtube videos! 😹

Once that was done just came back home to do some tasks, watch some stuff and call it a day.

Good night everybody! 🌜

Woke up feeling good, rested. Felt like going back to bed, but first thing that came to mind was all the work ahead of us, for rebuilding the Armenian spirit! So I made the bed instead and went straight to the kitchen, prepared coffee, got the coffee in hand and sat in front of the computer and went straight to work.

Got several hours of work in, afterwards took a break for ironing my clothes and washing the dishes. Had a quick videocall with my work partner and went to the kitchen to grab a bite. Now sitting in front of the laptop again, typing another morning journal entry. 😁

A good friend is going to come over for dinner and catching up! Haven’t seen him in a long time! He’s gonna leave in a couple of hours though because of the shitty curfew in effect. The good side about it is that I’ll have a couple more hours to get more work done.

Onwards we go.

Woke up ok, but it’s not a good day. On Monday night internal and external traitors together stabbed the country in the back at the most critically important time, AGAIN. And still Armenians don’t understand where the blow came from. We’re doomed to repeat the same mistakes OVER AND OVER until, as a collective, we figure out who is who, and what forces are in motion against the Armenian population of this world.

Yesterday was quite the shitty day for me. I couldn’t concentrate on my work at all. So I went on to doing a general cleanup of the house to distract myself of the grave troubles my country Armenia is going through. Doing house chores has a meditation effects which come in handy. Several hours of work allowed me to calm down and reflect on what happened, and the next steps forward.

Later that day a friend came over and I got to distract myself a bit longer for a while. And now here I am, in the morning of Wednesday. Time doesn’t stop for no one. Everyone and everything has to keep going.

Let’s get back on track and work even harder from now on. More focused, more dedicated, more of everything!

Waking up feeling good after a weekend of mild activity. I wanted to get a bit more work done during the weekend, but I guess the amount I did was already enough.

On Saturday I took my sweet time with sleeping in and taking a chill day of work. Got a visit afterwards for dinner and movie night. The next morning, again, took our sweet time to wake up, have some breakfast, coffee and move on with the day.

Sunday midday I had to be at Plaza España to sell one of my monitors to a person through Wallapop. I sold the monitor, but instantly realized it was the wrong one, so today during the afternoon they’ll come switch the wrong monitor with the right one. 😅
After that interesting episode I told a friend to come have a walk with me at the Palau Nacional, which she did and we had fun. We ended up walking all the way to Las Ramblas, to Plaza Cataluña and up Passeig de Gràcia. Afterwards went home by metro and took the rest of the day chill.

The weekend was also filled with some worrying news regarding the war in Armenia against the azerbaijani invasion. Those bastards came to the doors of Shushi, the second-largest city of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) and the place where I was born, but our men were able to stop them and return them running! That news I read this morning a little while ago! I’ll follow this news this week too and hope for the best. The turks and azeris will answer for their transgressions and acts of evil against Armenians and the rest of humanity.

Now I’ll continue with Monday, one step at a time, solving one thing at a time. Not running, but not walking either. Steady progress! 💪

Stay calm and VIVA ARMENIA!!! 🇦🇲🇦🇲🇦🇲

Friday, last “workday” of the week, in the sense of pushing hard for completing projects. The rest of the weekend is taking it easy.

Woke up a bit late because yesterday stayed up until 2-3 AM. I’ve got to learn to go to bed on time goddamit! It fucks up the whole next day!

Anyway, drank my coffee and went right to work. Got some work done and went for shopping because I was really hungry and there was little around the house. Got some very necessary stuff and came back. I took my time though, to use it as a break.

Now here I am, almost at the end of the day. Gonna finish a couple of tasks and go to sleep.

Tomorrow is will be a new day.

What a strange day. When I woke up I felt rested, but my mind went right to thinking about all the young men like me at the front, fighting for our country, our land, our families, our future. I almost feel bad for having the privilege to sleep at ease during the night without having to worry about getting killed. Then again, if I were in their shoes I wouldn’t want people like me to feel guilty or bad, I’d be fighting for their peace.

I just can’t help myself from feeling guilty.
Guilty for not having done the military service on time.
Guilty for not acquiring helpful life skills.
Guilty for not saving money.
Guilty for not learning my language, my history, my people.
Guilty for not learning about my enemy.
Guilty for not learning about myself.

Why guilty?
Because for the longest time I’ve seen this coming, but still chose to not do anything about it.
Now I’m stuck in Spain with my expired passport, begging people to help me make up for my shortcomings.

During this whole day I buried myself in work to shake these feelings and thoughts of guilt out of my head.
What I got as punishment was the news of my mother’s cousin being MIA.

I should be there with my brothers, not here rotting away in front of my laptop screen.

Rise and Shine! YEEHAAA!!! 🔥
Waking up happy after a hard days work of yesterday where I got a whopping 12 hours done! 💪

Waking up to some US elections news, but I don’t really care that much. As they say, same shyet, different toilet. It’s gonna be a civil war regardless. It’s been a long time coming! I wish the US citizens common sense to sort it out the right way.

It’s cloudy and a bit rainy, but I’ll have to leave home regardless. I’m going to sell one of the monitors that I’ve been keeping for a long time. Too long actually! Finally getting rid of it and getting some money in return. 😁

After that it’s the same old routine of getting work done. There’s certainly plenty to do, so let’s get to it!

Got a good rest from the immense tiredness of yesterday! Feels good to wake up well rested and ready to take on the day at 💯!
Would have probably slept a little longer, but good thing the Amazon delivery guy came by to deliver the Xiaomi 365 Pro scooter tires I ordered yesterday. 😹

Tried changing the tires, but I’m missing some tools to do so. I’ll leave it for later, because I don’t have any place to be anyway. Also, I could just use my bicycle if I needed it. Until then the metro will do too.

Now let’s finish some of the pending tasks before my clients wake up and move on with my projects!
