Blabbing September and October 2022

0

I got really busy during this fall, so after skipping September, here’s a joint post of everything that’s happened in the last two months. September is always bittersweet, as I would never want summer to end, but I kind of enjoy the new things and events that autumn brings. And there were lots of things this time. I had every weekend (and even a few weekdays) packed with programmes both September and October. When I...

On The Queen’s passing

0

I didn’t intend to write about this, even though I’ve seen lots of opinions and titles, until I’ve seen someone non-British whom I respect and with whom I ususally agree with liking a meme that compared the days after HM’s passing to scenes from North Korea, and I found it very upsetting. First of all, in Britain, there are royalists and anti-royalist, and there are people in between. There are hard-core royalists who admire the...

Blabbing August 2022

Happy September! It’s incredible to think that the majority of the year has already passed, and what an eventful year this was so far! At the end of every summer I am always half sad, because summer weather is my favourite, but half happy, because after the summer slump, finally things get going in September. I really feel September is the other January! It’s like a fresh start, whether you go to school or not....

Blabbing Kati Marton’s book about Angela Merkel

1

This wasn’t supposed to be one of my vacation reads, but being at my parents’ house, they had it out of the library, so I read it during the few days I’ve spent home in August. First of all, I am a huge fan of Kati Marton’s writing. I am also a huge fan of political biographies, so this book was definitely on my list for later reading. My only complaint is that if I’ve...

Thoughts coming from a book I didn’t even want to read

0

I had the story of Russian protest group Pussy Riot on my shelf for quite some time, but only in the last few months have I felt inclined to take a look behind the workings of the Russian state machinery. The book was actually a friend’s copy, and I had it for an embarassingly long time. About two years ago she gave it to me saying it’s something I need to read, and I was...

Blabbing July 2022

I am typing this in the middle of August this time, my writing goals pretty much went down the drain this summer. I started July with a week off of work that I spent home at my parents’ house in the countryside. Besides being able to get away from the noise of city life, I planned this one to be able to read and learn a lot and to be able to rethink my goals....

Blabbing June 2022

What an eventful month June was. And just like that, we’re halfway through the year and I am still struggling to find time to rest and work on my goals at the same time. I’ve spent two weekends in my hometown (closer to nature) in June. The first one was the very first weekend of June, a long weekend due to Pentecost Monday, which is a public holiday in Hungary. I also had Friday off,...

Blabbing May 2022

It’s been some time since May passed and since I’ve written anything here, but things have been crazy this past month. At the speed I am going, by the time I finish this post, June will be over already. Once again, I have a bunch of other unfinished posts waiting to be published, but I don’t want to leave May unreported. It’s amazing we are almost halfway through the year, isn’t it? May has been...

London, March 2022

0

My first trip after a long time of not going anywhere led to my favourite city in the world, London. It took me a long time to write this one, but better late than never. More than a month had passed, but I barely spent a whole week in one place since, and that along with being busy at work was tiring after such a long time of rarely going anywhere. I’ve spent four days...

Blabbing April 2022

April was busy and slow at the same time, and I can’t believe we’re past one-third of the year already! I started April at home in Nagykálló preparing for the elections. The weather was terrible (it was snowing on the 3rd!) and I was having a cold anyway. Election day (April 3rd) also happened to be the only day this year, when I haven’t done any yoga and haven’t read a book, since I was...
