We had a dry Sunday. We even got to see the sun for a little bit! The weathermen still say it will continue to rain some more, yet I somehow feel I can take it after more than 24 hours of being dry. Or maybe it’s the fact that I am on the night shift this week, which means going to and coming from work with a cab?
K wanted to buy some boots yesterday, so we went looking. Needless to say most of the stores have not moved on to displaying boots, at least in menswear, although it’s kind of cold and rainy outside and although the women’s wear sectors have…So if you want to buy something for the cold weather, don’t even thing of sporty boots, you don’t need that for now!
And if you want discounts for the summer collection, don’t expect that much yet, maybe somewhere in the middle of the winter. So it’s decided, most Romanian stores have a very weird (not to say stupid) marketing strategy.
As for K’s birthday, the celebration was pretty much just the two of us, except for some not planned clubbing. As it was Saturday, the club was so full we could hardly dance. We managed, but when we got out I had that taste in my mouth like I had just smoked a bit too much. It was passive smoking…
So, one week left before the University year starts. I am pretty excited, but not about the faculty itself (I tend to keep it cool after I have seen all the enthusiasm can go down the drain as it happened with journalism). It’s mostly about finally seeing my schedule and integrating it with my work and all the other stuff I need to do for the final paper. I’m also pretty excited about seeing their library and its schedule. I must admit that is more important then the actual class schedule.
As for my reading, the current book is Thomas Mann’s Buddenbrooks
. It is pretty predictable at times, but some parts of it are really enjoyable. I guess I really wanted to see if a certain statement is true: “No one ever loved a German book”. It was a joke, but it gave me a reason to read a book that has been left on my shelf for several months.
