Sunday, funday, very sunny day, as forecasted! 🌞

Woke up feeling good. Slept much longer than needed though, but still felt good. At least woke up with plenty of energies to take on this new day, which I decided would be very chill and laid back kind of day.

I started doing some chores around the house, but then decided to leave everything on pause and just go for a walk at the beach with a friend, so I hit up my good friend Yasir and he replied right back with a resounding “Yes”! And so, 50min later, we were both at the La Barceloneta beach enjoying a sunny day.
We took many pictures, videos and created amazing insta-stories. It was a sunny day with a clear sky, but lots of wind and big waves in the water, so naturally there were lots of surfers using this moment to enjoy to their hearts content.

We sat down at Bacoa and enjoyed a hamburger with patatas bravas. Then we continued our walk until Hotel W Barcelona at the other end of the whole beach, at which point it already got dark. The sun went down and up came the big beautiful round and reddish moon to continue shining upon us! 🌕

Afterwards we took a bus and went to the Sagrada Familia meetup at Inter Tapa, where we met some friends and sat down for some socializing. After an hour I had to get up and go see a friend at Gracia for a brief moment. Remember I mentioned that I needed to have a “talk” with a friend? Well, it didn’t happen yesterday, but instead it did today.

It went as I expected. I calmly explained what I went for to talk about. She listened, agreed with some parts, and disagreed with the last point moving forward, which kind of makes sense when you have into account what I said. Understandable. But still, it had to be said, and it needs to be like that moving forward. No more wasting my time nor other people’s time.

Moving forward we’ve got to do everything the right way.

Woke up at 12:30PM!!! 🤯
It was a very long, but needed, sleep! Woke up feeling very rested and ready to take on Saturday by getting some work done on personal projects! 💪

Today’s theme is getting back to base. Meaning, after doing some reflecting I came to the conclusion that certain personal matters, like a specific relation to a friend, should be addressed in a proper and honest way instead of beating around the bush and keeping unrealistic expectations and hopes. I’d much prefer to talk in person with her, but I’ll do a call if needed. The important thing is we have a honest conversation so we can move on with our lives the right way.

Regarding the personal projects, there’s a little bit of work to do, but the potential of it working out are great, to say the least! Looking forward to getting this thing off the ground and making some serious Fuck-You-Money! 😹

Having said that, time to get to work!

Woke up a little bit later than planned, but still quite early considering it’s me we’re talking about! 😹

When I woke up I felt a tiny bit tired, but after getting up and walking around I could feel my body was rested enough. I still think I’ll have to take a little break during midday to recover my energies a bit. 💪

We’re already at Friday again! There is one very important project to finish which I’ll get to right after finishing this journal entry and grocery shopping!

A bit too much of a rainy gray day for my liking though. It reminds me a lot of the time we used to live in the Netherlands. Most of the times we stepped out of our house to go school we were greeted by a gray sky and some sheep staring right into our eyes. Those Texel sheep have some creepy demon-like faces! 😹

Woke up a bit later than planned, around 8:45AM. Was planning on waking up around 7AM and getting right back to working so I could later on go for the Bubble Tea with my date at Sagrada Familia. Instead got barely one hour of work in and then grabbed all my stuff and bounced off to the center.

Got the Bubble Tea at the only place open at 10:15AM and went to Sagrada Familia to meet with my date. We hugged, talked for a bit and drank-ate our Bubble Teas (this drink is AMAZIN’! 🤩). Afterwards she had to enter her restaurant to do her shift so we said our goodbyes and I went on with my scooter to my favorite #COFFICE Oassis Natural Cooking, which is wonderfully situated at the beginning of the famous Passeig De Gràcia avenue.

I had a Oassis Lemonade, ate the 6 Quesos pizza, drank a capuchino and continued my work until now. Later on will meet with my friends at a Meetup like we used to! Looking forward to it! 😁

Woke up after another long-ass sleep. I guess today I won’t be sleeping by pulling an all-nighter until tomorrow night 10PM. 🤷‍♂️

Woke up feeling the same way as yesterday morning. The first thing I did was think about the work still ahead of me, which is much less now, but there is still quite the amount of work left to do. Despite not really feeling like it, I did end up doing a lot of work yesterday, and I’ve got the feeling today will be the same. I’m going to try and get tons of hours in. I’ll try to make this the most productive week as of yet! 💪

Woke up latish, around 12:30PM. Got some coffee and had to hop right behind the laptop again.

I had to cancel the plan of having lunch together with my friend who prepared lots of delicious Pakistani dishes! 😭
I was so very much looking forward to it and because of the goddamn work had to miss it! 😢

Doesn’t matter in the end I guess. There’ll always be next time.

Come to think of it, this week’s theme is “canceling all plans”. 🤷‍♂️

Can’t be helped. We plough ahead.

Woke up a bit late around 11:30AM, got up, made some coffee, cleaned the kitchen, washed the dishes, and got right back in front of my laptop. There’s lots to do and very little time.

It’s a sunny, yet very cold day. Looks like temperatures are finally dropping. This weekend I should perhaps go for a walk at the beach again with my friends. Would be very nice.

Regarding today though, I should focus and get stuff done. Already called the Armenian Embassy and got information on how to proceed for finally being able to return to Armenia.

Woke up feeling a bit tired, so stayed in bed for half an hour. While dozing off I started thinking about how being famous must feel like because I’ve lately been watching PewDiePie’s videos recently and he mentions what it’s like for him to be recognized and stopped by strangers in public, which more often than not, is annoying.

Thinking about it made me realize that currently, while not being famous, I’m enjoying quite a bit of tranquility. When I was little I though I needed to be famous and have money for people to come to me. Now I realize those are just by-products of living a decent successful life being yourself, being good at your craft, helping others, and a bit of luck. Everything in its due time.

For now gotta work and finish what’s on my plate. After that we can dream big.

Woke up to a nice morning session of hot steamy love! 😹
I wish everyday could be like this! Soon enough, I guess, when I find my significant other.

Wanted to take a shower, but turns out they’re doing some water canals construction work, so the water is cut. Just waiting till 3PM when the running water should be back. Until then I’ll continue sitting and working like this. 🙃

Got some important projects to take care of today. I better get going!
