Hello dear February,
it’s 7.45 and I have been up since 6 am. Next to me at the café, a guy is eating a huge quantity of French toast, omelette and I wonder how this could be possible. I can hardly ship a cup of coffee at this time.
Other people also talk and they make sense at this time. My parents always impressed me in that sense.
I can hardly make any conversation.
But still, but still, I need to wake up my brain.
And continue my writing.
With something intelligible, that my wake up brain will still like a few hours later.
starting today my part-time job, I felt kind of self-conscious and stressed up: will I rise to the occasion? Will I like it enough to give my best? Etc etc…
So, what to do in this case?
To begin with, I need to identify the source.
Deep down, I wonder if I have time to write and publish, my no 1 heart’s desire, or almost.
If I stay relaxed in a busy way, I will have an hour a day. If I am focused, this should be enough, that’s how I wrote my first book.
Second, do I like what I do, well enough to invest serious effort?
I like it well enough, so I should do some serious preparation.
Apparently, if you see some pictures of handsome Brits and Irish men, as a girl, you feel better:

yes, this is not exactly an expression with Christmas spirit, more like a corrida in Spain expression, but as the year drives towards the end, you realize there are things you need to accomplish, still there.
So, what to do?
Or, take the bull by the horns?
The last seems better.
It’s like, taking action and facing right away the biggest fear, or what the oponent has the most fearful first.
In my case, I need to write that email NOW
Winter is coming with you, and it’s a good thing to see things more clearly, the naked tree branches and a more minimalistic aspect of nature!
For me, adventure is here:
I need to move out of my current room by Saturday, and the studio didn’t work because they were asking the 6 months in advance plus expenses plus agency plus deposit.
There is another possibility coming up, but I need all my “sang-froid” or my cool and relaxed attitude to make it work.
The Samurai or Ninja attitude.
the expectation of a nice Italian pizza is a great way to start Sunday, especially if you have some work to do instead of from being lazy and enjoying the frosty morning.
A semi-flirtatious person texted me an emoticon with a kiss and love, only to tell me it was a mistake, and it wasn’t addressed to me. I just raised virtually my shoulders.
This population of semi probably needs evacuation before the end of the month to make space for something more authentic.
So, while waiting for the Italian night a song by a French with Italian origin, I think:
happiness, humor, music, personal development, success
Americano, Dany Brillant, Italian food, personal development, Pizza, relationships, semi-flirt

Hello again October and farewell,
this Halloween cat watching a horror movie is really something!
in the midst of chaotic events, a friend has offered me ‘The Rules’ to inspire me getting a Mr Right.
After skimming it, I decided it’s good to retain the essential: we need to respect ourselves and others will respect as then.
The same goes for jobs.
Do I feel like the best anyone could have? Do I show there is competition?
That I am an asset?
Let’s become hard to get.
I have a meeting today, I will leave early. And go to another one in the same way.
I am moving in to a new place, and guess what, it was full of moths; another friend of mine saw mice in her kitchen. Should we enjoy the presence of the wild life around us or call pest control?
What to do or not do, when things seem to be out of control?
Apparently, any crisis is an opportunity.
So, let’s see what this new opportunity brings over;
Maybe I have much more options than I realize, after all.
It could be a question of perspective.
Looking at things from a different angle.
Now, an area where I have been shying away from, are publications.
And also, asking to be paved for my work.
As if, I didn’t deserve that.
I think there is something to do there right away.
this is a day to congratulate myself, for the GOOD WORK I have been doing all along, and to encourage me to continue!
So I give me an A+ and I will treat me to something special.
This is independently from results, and from circumstances which might seem to be challenging.
They will come to their senses.
If I don’t acknowledge my efforts, why should the others do it?
Honestly, if I saw a candidate like myself, I would hire me right away and make sure I would have enough incentives to stay 😉
After this, I feel I can also tell the people whose work I appreciate, that I do.
Because it feels good when someone else tells you also!

here I am again, thinking about the next step. You may say, maybe you need to act instead of thinking. But without any plan you get all over the place and might just be confused.
So, I feel like a misunderstood genius, what should I do about it June?
Find like-minded people and do something together?
Wait for someone to discover me?
Go out with my project/book/short-story and invite others to react to it?
Go for a massage?
All of the above?
