I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry – blog topics to come

May 24, 2016

Several things happened this weekend that made me reconsider blogging again. So I guess it was all good, despite feeling the opposite at times. Let’s see, in chronological order:


Saturday morning I received a text message. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, so I did a little bit of both. Maybe you can guess what it was. I won’t go into detail, since I am still testing the waters on how personal I can get on here. But one day, one beautiful day, it will be time for a big show down, the ultimate, unrelenting, crude an honest truth about what I HATE about this country. And it won’t be pretty. There is some time to gather material and momentum though, since I will want to have an exit strategy shortly after that one.


In the course of the following two days I endured a total of almost six hours in 12 degrees Celcius and pouring rain on a small sailing boat. This activity is called DC Sail Beginner Sailing Course for Adults. The fun thing about learning something new as an adult is the conscious experience of total loss of control while venturing into the unknown. As a kid, you don’t think about it. But now? Trying to form the past tense of verbs ending with -ya in Russian, in a course full of Chinese college students? Fun! Moving across the Atlantic to start a new job, find an apartment, “learn” a new life basically? Terrific!! Acting like an idiot on a sailing boat with five people on board in a downpour? The ideal weekend activity!!!

I am planning to learn many new things in the near future, things I’ve always wanted to do. And I am going to blog about them here, if we are all lucky.


Just today I learned that my latest blog post for the IDB has been the most popular this year so far! That’s cool. Since people seem to want to read my stuff, I decided to write about life away from the office again – the world out there! Suggestions welcome. To conclude my weekend of learning (see how I include Monday into the weekend? My new psycho- trick.), I will figure out how to do a *poll* on this nifty wordpress blog, so you can actually cast a vote on suggested themes that the world needs to know about.

    Hali Katikám, tudod, én szívesen olvasok mindent. Csak az a baj, biztos már sokan leszoktak a világháló naplódról. Bár talán megkapták a hírt a feléledéséröl az Arckönyvön keresztül. Puszi-puszi

    azon gondolkodom milyen igék vannak az oroszban, amik -ya-ra végzödnek, valahogy nem ugrik be semmi, mert ugye a fönévi igenevek azok (ami a magyarban a -ni) az kiejtve “ty” (most nem tudok a cirillbetük keresésével foglalkozni) az oroszban. Vagy esetleg így belegondolva a -szja végü igékre gondoltál (visszaható forma)?

    Hali Katikàm. Szavaztam. Többször is. Mindent olvasok ugyis 🙂
    Fölleg most, hogy Bernben ülök egy könyvelés-tovàbbképzésen. Képzelheted…
    De fölleg jo lenne megint egyszer beszélni!
    Puszik, Kati (a màsik)
