London Calling

No, this is not the next one on my list, but just a short update from me.

In 24h i’ll already have left Lisbon n be with one of my best friends in London. =) Right now I’m totally missing the time to write, a proper post, but I have LOTS of things to share – my mind is full. Well, back in Lousa I’ll probably have way more time than I’d like to have. But i’m actually only coming back for 5 days, then again on to Braga – maybe actually seeing the city during the training this time! And after that, while I’m in the north, I’ll most likely not miss out on a long weekend in Porto. Still trying to sort that all out. Well first, I’m off to London with very mixed feelings. As happy as I am to go back there after 5 years and see my great friend again, this also means the end of my Lisbon stay and the 2 weeks of working, accompanied by so much music. And I definitely can’t pretend to be happy about that …

Well, I’m already getting into future posts. I’ll keep you guys updated, expect to hear from me soon! (With tons of pictures hopefully.) Did I mention I was at a rehearsal of a friend’s band, got my hands on a good camera n made some really nice photos? =) Waiting for my friend to send me the photos, it was his camera!


what happens when you are suddenly faced with a lot of free time

And not for a short period of time. No, for a full year 😀 A full year with suddenly free evenings from 6pm. Well, talking about Monday to Thursday and that also minus 2-3 tutoring classes per week in the evening. Still, for someone who formerly had to work until 9pm nearly ever single day and had a lot of extra activities as well, this is overwhelming. And I realise I have to learn how to deal with it again. I’m just not used to spending quite evenings anymore! Because earlier, the only ones I had I usually spend doing nothing because I needed this time-out. And now? I kinda do nothing most evenings xD And I’d actually finally have time to do all the thousands of things again I didn’t find the time to in the last few years.

But, strangely as it is, I feel a bit empty. How enjoying free-time is something you have to learn … I’m not much into having a lot of free time, honestly. I appreciate it, but that’s why I like my weekends to planned with either activities or traveling (2 weeks ago Coimbra, this weekend Leiria), I still have the rest of the evenings free…

I wonder how other people cope with this and if they’ve actually ever been in my position? 😀 One thing I really like to occupy myself with is cooking … finally time for that =) (and baking, but I don’t have an oven 😦 😦 😦 )

Ok. Well. Really a very random babbling post today only. Felt like writing and this is what is on my mind =)

Oh, I’m thinking about buying a tablet pc again after mine, just half a year old, was stolen in April. Nice Christmas gift maybe…
