This summer I went to the Maldives.
I liked. Tell us where you were. And show me photo.
Inner Hebrides in Scotland, sailing for a week with my uncle. Not too bad at all - of course I come from Scotland but it was still enjoyable.
Download Festival, England. Really good bands, good atmosphere, shitty weather like last time! What can you do though.
This summer I spend all my time at home, watched tons of anime and played a lot of games.
This summer I worked, went to T in the Park, then worked again going camping in a few weekends to wallaby island
meh... the majority of the year here is summer... so basically working (toy store and later i found some friends with data processing jobs & translation jobs and have moved to that full time), studying (mobile app development), socializing with students, half of the friends i made in class are arabs and i'm learning broken arabic faster then i learned english, which is really weird, so many words sound the same but have a different meaning. o, and moving, moving and moving, too many times...
first i found a really nice apartment with a roommate that sucked - she had a dog and lacked any will to train him, put the effort into walking him, and for that matter, i had to fight with her into cleaning his dung from the living room. then she lost her job and her parents tried nagotiating with me to pay both our rents, to which i had to explain to them about two dozen times that i'm not her husband, boyfriend, hell i am barely her friend, sure we talked as friends but whenever i offered actual solutions to her problems she constantly had this thing where she had the weirdest principle for why she can't do what she needs to do, a.k.a. "this isn't my place", this in her mind expanded to social problems, to having to be a specialist in anything that you need to do, basic things which anyone can find online like formatting a computer, hacking an iphone, or setting up her cable box, which i agreed to pay for despite the fact i never watch the thing... i hassled with the landlord to get me out of the contract, and eventually he agreed.
then i found another apartment, slightly more expansive, with a fantastic roommate that was very nice to me from the moment we met... and for a few weeks everything was fantastic, she loved my cooking, she didn't mind me walking around the apartment the way i wanted too and joined in on it, i met new friends through her and her work place (donation collector for green peace - all of them hippies), even opened up to her about my divorce and how i can't stop thinking about my stepson... except apparently there''s only one reason anyone is that nice to someone from the opposite sex. i got stoned, things happened, and it was nice for awhile, until i realized she was into me romantically, and i wasn't anywhere close to that, i explained to her that i wasn't anywhere close to that, that its not her, its just that i am so far off from being able to trust women again that there isn't a point in trying with me, but she's going to make some other man really happy soon enough. she wasn't buying it and rightfully accused me of using her as a rebound, things got really awkward really fast, but since my contract was with her, it was easy enough to resolve. we still talk and she still sends me my mail though since its still my official address, she's fine with it until i have another place, and i paid for one extra rent to give her time to find me a replacement.
then a week ago, just on the start of the jewish holiday season, my mother fell and cracked her shoulder, so i've being a nurse butler and taxi driver, and now tomorrow i am going back to studying and have no idea how i am going to manage my mother for the next few weeks... going to have to wing it. i just really hope she heals before project season starts again. i had a mobile phone game concept in mind, but my gonna-be artist flunked class and doesn't want to have anything to do with mobile apps, which means i can either do one of my other app ideas, or my game is going to look ugly as fuck. a friend i made in a family gathering who works in the tel aviv city hall and knows their needs has an app concept for them, and that's a market i might be able to corner with just a few friends, even without much of a skill for the visual. programming wise i'm 5th in my class among 40, and the only one out of the 5 who doesn't have coding experience, so that makes me likely to be among the first hired from the company that helped finance the college classes straight off the bat, which is nice.
all in the same time, my uncle on my father's side, who found out he has parkinson, is getting really ill, and is spending nearly all his time in the hospital, which means my time is being cut even shorter through frequent hospital visits.
and now summer is over, and i'm not going to have another vacation off school until hanuka on december, and will be stuck in israel at least until the end of june. once that is over, i will have a vocation that i can do from any place in the world with an internet connection, work by myself or in teams, creative problem solving and/or design, and be able to do a lot of small scale projects within a time frame of months rather then years, making it the perfect job for me. i also got the army to pay for most of my studies with veteran benefits.
I cant believe I actually read you whole post well hope your mom gets better
Went to lots of parties and had a threesome.
It was a good summer
Sober enough to remember the good stuff I hope?
And I spent my time Duck and Goose Hunting, and preparing to enter the Canadian Forces again. Its going to be a long fucking winter, because you know I love -40c runs at 5 in the morning.
Thanks... I can't believe there's new people here.
