things that make me happy

by ada

Just to keep record of some of the things that otherwise would be forgotten would I hold onto chronology too strictly; things that made my life better even if only for one short moment.

One of those things was eating cherries…

cherries 3

…especially twin cherries:

twin cherries 1

My bike, Priscilla. I bought her from a Portuguese girl who has since moved back home; and decided to keep the name she gave it (I am the queen of second third fourth tenth hand bikes):

Priscilla 1

That my bike has “happy” written on it…

happy 2

…and that she is not the only happy bike out there:

choose to be happy 1

Things I find in my bed after Milo naps in it (a half meter long plastic toy tram, a ladle, and the naked leg of a Barbie doll, just to name a few):

lego figures 1

My new pink Adidas ballerinas (the only piece of pink clothing I’ve ever owned, I’m fairly sure). I got them at the mall called Mercury Centrum in České Budějovice:

pink shoes 1

This mosaic. It reminds me of Wien:

mosaic Linz 1

Cats on walls…

Bad Isch cats 1

…on doormats…

doormat cat 2

…and in my work email:

email cats

Deer on my new hoodie:


The new Mma Ramotswe book:

the woman who walked in sunshine 7

All the three and a half days of summer we’ve got this year (so far)…

Linz summer 11

…which I used for going on bike rides…

summer 1

…and taking cable cars:

Grünberg 3

This cheese I found at Merkur. It is so good (and it reminds me of last summer):

Bregenzerwaelder Camembert 4

That, after 5 months on raw food (and junk food), I can now finally cook again:

my kitchen 7

That my room smells like elderflower:

elderflower tea 1

Móricka’s new manifesto: When I grow up, I will be Ada and I will take the train to places very very far and I will buy all the presents. (I feel like I’m turning into the American Auntie Rich Relative From The Other Side Of The Iron Curtain, a phenomenon I so badly envied from the neighbourhood kids while growing up in Socialist Hungary):


Those 30.863 voters who turned over the elections (Obviously, I am not allowed to vote in Austria. But I still have my opinions about my pampered, twenty-years old coworkers with their houses and swimming pools, who all voted right radical because of “young blood” and “dahoam”):

Van Der Bellen 1

That I’m moving out of this house (the neighbours! Give me a lonesome island!)…


…because I’m finally, finally leaving Linz. Not a day too early. My time here had so much in common with my last few Dutch months. The city that I failed to click with. The social isolation. The terrible weather (it was snowing yesterday! On the 18th of June!). The frustrating living conditions (the neighbours! Did I mention my neighbours!). The feeling that I’m stuck and that it’s not my fault. The general unhappiness this unfortunate combination brought on me. Truly, it were some miserable eight months. But it’s almost over now!

Slovenia – the ground beneath my feet

by ada

There are a plenty of good reasons to examine the ground beneath your feet in Slovenia. Looking down keeps you entertained and, most importantly, it provides you with information that is essential for safe travel…

bycicle sign Portorose 1

…and for your survival through clues on where to find water and food.


ground Koper 4

If you’re lucky, you can even find some actual food.

Water is everywhere…

As for the animals, there are sea stars,…

…cats, that are eager to make friends with you…

…and more cats that are too busy on their way to secret missions to care.

You can also admire the beauty made by man.

the October game

by ada

My October readings were:

  • The Handmaid’s Tale, because I have a sure hand if it comes to picking books that make me feel uncomfortable
  • cat comics, because I’m into comics lately. No matter what subject they are about as long as they don’t want to share too much verbal information. It seems that I’ve successfully eliminated my need for words. I’m looking forward to enjoy some zoekboeks in November. They contain no letters at all! (and because I’m sure this book was inspired by The Cat, who, though too old and too comfortable to actually do the killing, thinks about it all the time)
  • four more Nancy Drew stories in e-book format, because I’m starting to get the feeling. I’m not quite sure if I like this feeling, though. I mean, this girl Nancy Drew is about one of the most annoying personalities somebody could ever create; and the Zeitgeist of those terrible 1980’s (I know them. I spent my childhood in the 80’s. Most of my issues have their roots in those awkward years), really, I don’t even want to remember. Even if I’m sure that the 80’s in the socialist Hungary with us marching in uniforms and singing the Soviet national anthem in Russian has not much in common with the 80’s in the USA, the land of freedom and infinite possibilities (and serial killers) (and AIDS); the memory of those years still haunts me and makes me actually like the idea of growing older.
