This was the day I began working at 7 am and at 9 am I was already tired enough to take the elevator for going up one floor. This was the day my blood pressure needed four cups of coffee to climb up to the dangerous heights of 110/70. And this was the day I didn’t take any photos at all.

I successfully got over the first half of my Project 365 without missing a day. It is more than I trusted myself at the beginning of the year, so I’m just fine with skipping one.

Another work day. I don’t know for how long yet, but for the moment that’s my everyday life.

Spring Garrison Parade in Városliget. In  Hungary joining the military is exclusively voluntary, since we have no obligatory military service since 2005. I am a devoted pacifist and I find the world would be a much better place if there was no need for soldiers and the army at all, but I have to admit that big, strong men in uniform definitely have a way with them that makes a woman’s heart beat irregularly :o)

Another thirteen-hours long shift.

Evening sky on my way home after working thirteen hours. The problem with me is that I’m never a tourist. I never visit cities, I’m always living in them. And I always have a lot of other things to do (like working thirteen hours, haha), so no time remains for sightseeing. But this weekend I have free, so, Salzburg, I’m coming!

Today we did a book decluttering with my sister. I personally own about 2000 books, about the half of them are stored in friends’ basements and storage boxes in Holland and Austria. My sister and my parents are of the same sort, and we live in a two-room flat of 50 sqare meters. And I didn’t mention the abnormal amount of music scores and the LP collection I also have yet. You can imagine the result. With one word: chaos.

For me it is really hard to give away books, even the ones I don’t particularly like. I received a fair amount of unwanted books as birthday presents or free copies for playing music on book presentations, and even if I know I will never read them, because, well, the structures of monetary economy and likes are somewhat out of my interest, it’s still difficult to make the decision. And I plan to collect all of my books at home because of the frequency I’m moving in and out of countries lately. That means another 1000 pieces are to find place for. It’s a frightening perspective.
