A rolling stone gathers no moss!

There is a certain something concerning writing in a foreign language. After having mastered it in a certain extent, it’s sometimes easier (or more convenient) to express yourself in it. Actually it is a rather succesful way to escape from the norms of the mother tongue and talk about stuff you wouldn’t be able to otherwise.

Let alone that I have numerous acquaintances abroad, and this might be the only way for me to communicate in a regular basis. School, exams, and a stressed up, messed up, mixed up personal life make my days’ burden quite heavy. So, sometimes I do not spend as much time as I would like in order to keep in touch with various friends all around the world, valuable friends from all these years. It would also be a good excuse for me to practice my English, since sometimes I feel that my knowledge fades away due to lack of a certain level of practicing. I believe so much in borderless communication, that any single crack in my spotless mirror of communication dissatisfies me enormously.

I suppose that any non-greek-speaking fellows that will be visiting this part of my website know me already, so I will skip the boring «who am I» part. News, only news, and the usual blabbering, groaning, hoping, that you are used to have from me. Yes, the one you love about me…

Currently my schedules are quite fucked up, due to my exams. You see, The usual greek conundrum made me land abruptly in a stressful two-month exam period this Fall. I just can’t get it. First, abundant carefree time for me, crossing the country and having loads of fun, and then immediately a steep 180-degree-turn to some serious studying, in order to come closer to the much anticipated university degree. Many years spent carelessly demand my utmost attention now, since I decided to become a physicist, after all.

However, the whole exam process is rather corroding for a young optimist’s perspective. I really hope that it ends soon, with the best possible results, so as for me to be able to relax a bit, and finally do some serious planning for what’s to follow my studies.

But what really is concerning me the last few days, is that I have seriously spoiled my body functions because of my low nutritional standards during the last weeks. Bad sleeping habits, junk food such as souvlaki, gyros, pizza and pasta, loads of cigarettes (for a non-smoker…at least not a habitual one), whiskey and wine. And all of it accompanied by huge amounts of nescafe frappe. It’s quite understandable now why my whole body feels like shit, weak and stuff. I am sure that I will recuperate after the exams, but what matters most for me now, is to survive, and survive succesfully. Thank God the typical Greek mama will pay me a visit sometime next week in order to do some laundry, cook some decent food for her only son, and turn this poor excuse for a home back into a place to live.

That’s all for now. I am sure I could go on and on, but it’s just the beginning. And as I wrote in the title of this first post in English, a rolling stone gathers no moss. And I really do not intend to stop rolling. I’ll just find a way to keep rolling on track… Cheerio!
