Good morning to everyone!
I don’t really remember when it was the last time I went to bed so early, but today I won’t make it till midnight. I am completely wiped out and I haven’t done anything so stressing today.
Besides work, I went only to see a good friend of mine, and that was it.
A trip that should have taken me about an hour with the public transport turned into something close to two hours and I had the chance to relive memories of the public transport in my country twenty-five years ago.
Luckily it was cold enough not to feel too unwell being pressed as fish in a can.
What I enjoy most is when you run to catch the bus and the bus waits for you. However, exactly when you got to the door to get on the bus, the driver closes the doors and with a grin drives away.
It makes you feel important and that’s a feeling that doesn’t go away too soon, especially if you have to wait for the next bus for about ten minutes and the bite of the wind is quite bitter.
Public transport offers lots of stories if you observe the people around.
I noticed that it’s turning into a real fashion to get on the bus with a baby in a stroller and occupy three seats with the named stroller so that no one could disturb you during the trip. Of course, the fact that people are pressed one into the other and that they may be tired going home from work is just a passing thought – if any.
A very interesting situation occurred on the bus on my way home. A young lady offered her seat to an older gentleman – he looked around eighty. While she was trying to let him pass to sit down, a young man came from behind, pushed her aside, making her bump into the old man and then he took the seat that she so generously offered to the senior citizen.
People looked, shook their heads but no one said anything. The poor old man held onto the bar for several stops until someone else noticed him and offered him the seat. This time he was lucky: no one pushed their way to take the seat away.
Anyway, I had plans for today and quite a lot of them, but unfortunately, with the trip that seemed to last forever, I couldn’t do too much of anything.
I was stuck mostly in front of the computer, gathering stats for the magazine and doing my regular job. Hopefully, tomorrow I will be able to accomplish a bit more because the weekend is almost here and I do have to finish some things before then.
Rex is sleeping away and I can’t refrain from feeling jealous. My eyelids are threatening to close and I really need to catch up on my sleep. Maybe I am getting older! Four hours a night used to be quite enough but right now it seems that I have exceeded my limit.
I know, it’s been a boring blog today. However, I cannot say the day has been boring. The stats for the magazine are great and there have been so many surprises there that I couldn’t contend my pleasure and I had to bother the other editors with the news and not for a minute or two but for over half an hour. It was like I couldn’t stop boasting. Eh, not everyone can be dignified before such good news.
Okay, I really have to go to sleep because I am simply rambling. See you all tomorrow night!
