Hater culture

There is much hate language on the Net and in real life. An outburst of it is seen in the media and between people across E.U. on the topic of ‘refugees” (topic on which I do agree though am not about to throw garbage over at others). Kind of… I do not see why we should be taking them in when the rest of the world refuses to.. not to mention the fact that most of them are not even from where they claim to be. But, let’s leave that alone.

I wanted to chip in a few words on other types of hate language that are spread between today population. A hater will always find someone or something to hate. As the old saying has it “one that wishes to hit a dog, will always find the right stick for that”.

What I do not seem to understand at all is.. why God fearing Catholics (or so they claim) , every-day church-goers and devout Christians in general  are so sickly evil to each-other. It makes my stomach revolt, when I hear a devote christian saying to his own (almost 40 years old) daughter upon noticing a tattoo on her “tattoo your brain” (and that is one of the lighter sentences).. that’s just an example from my own life…for love of the higher power…who are they to judge, and to use that kind of language. Who are we to judge others, in general? We have no clue what they went through, we may know their name… but not WHO they are or WHAT they are about.

This also applies to workplaces.

Why do we keep on judging each-other?!?

Another situation. I made my rx-8 dream come true…some people around me instantly decided I have a mid-life crisis and bashed me over it. Mid-life-crisis my butt…. I wanted one of those since 2004, since I was 25…ergo I am in mid-life-crisis since my 20’s ? great! Perhaps for them that car means I am going through a crisis because they secretly crave and have no guts to get one. Maybe for them that’s what it is…a mid-life crisis to make their life fuller. For me, it is just a dream come true.

My only reason for getting it, for going back to university to study law, for getting a crazy haircut or for my not so subtle tattoos … is cause I can and, finally,  am able to afford. I think with all I have been through in my life, I do diverse to treat myself to some things that I feel are good for me. And my brain seems just too narrow to even grasp why the hell all the hate and garbage I hear for all around about those decisions of mine. Why can’t they just be happy with their own lives and keep on judging  others? True, the post is based on me…ME ME ME… yet, I see that all around.. is acceptance really that hard?  Or maybe we are all just haters by nature? Or is it a fashion statement to constantly hate someone or something and to judge others? (I do not hate anyone, or anything.. not really.. does that make me a freak?)

Late August Colorado and NM trip mostly in photos

I went to the US for a week. I won’t post photos of the people I went to visit as I have no permission to do so. I admit to have not though of asking them, and would rather not overstep the privacy. There are also some pictures of houses I found interesting..and those I will post, but should anyone have anything against, please do write me.

These are mainly Denver and Littleton, CO.

And here is the road-trip… I admit it has been a challenging for me… have not driven 1010 km on one go ever, but was really determined to get to Hatch and see Dave and Lesli. @Lesli sorry but I will post photos of the tile work you did on the house… because it is simply great. And some photos of Dave’s work-area and artworks. I have been really blessed to have come across such wonderful parents.

That red Chevy was my rental…it was actually the newest I have ever driven (2015) .. if anyone asks.. that plant in the 3rd from end photo is tobacco… and I just could not resist taking photo of the “truth or consequences” sign. I think NM is the only place on the face of earth with this level of bizarre-ness in a town’s name. Yet, it simply feels like home to me.

Briefing

It’s been a really long while since I published anything. I think I do need to pick up on that habit. I do like writing, sharing what I know and experience.

So, here is a brief what has happened to me. This year is basically one big nut house and I am the main protagonist tied up in the center, it seems… with some influence… but I feel also a lot of stuff have been taken out of my hands.

I did finish my 1st year of law at Kozminski University in Warsaw, and am back for the 2nd year now. Decided to write some trial papers, for I lack European academic writing experience and would not wish to write my master’s without any preparation ahead of time. One of my professors was gracious enough to agree to guide me along the way. It seems I’m headed for one of those big and interdisciplinary works.. not that I mind.. it will just take a longer time to prepare.

I did not end up in Canada, as I wanted … instead had a failed attempt at moving to Moscow. I do want to go back, but am interwoven in too much here and now. I’m not sure how that will work out. In all honesty, I am much disappointed by some people I trusted.. yet some have proven to be more friends/family than I would have though. Not going to point any fingers, but I know now who I can relay on.

My husband got a good kick out of that trip and changed his ways in some areas… yet in others I hear declarations but see no actions. Not sure how that will go. For the worst that can happen to you is to love someone and be at the point when you can’t watch anymore what they are doing to themselves. And I have been at that point this year. It was killing me inside .. I’m not sure he cared…never-mind that.  Time will tell.

My cars.. yes, there are two of them now.. not just one. 126p is with my friend. It had front joint and bearing replaced recently and needs a bottom body paint/protection job done (kind of short on funds at the moment) but that’s because at the same time my Rx-8 went to the shop to get some routine things done .. that did not turn out so routine.. won’t be even showing those.. no point.. just the initial appraisal went up by 100% on one end making the others rather short. Yet, I prefer to get that attended to right now than have to look for way more serious and pricey solutions next year. It is best to prevent than to try rescue whatever is to be rescued later on. I apply the very same rule to human, cat and car health. Comes out more economic in the end.  And once you do get rx-8…let’s be honest…is economy/ecology something one can eat?

One great thing I did do this year.. is I finally went to the US and told those people whom I love, what I felt needed to be told. I think, regardless of the effort and money spend, I would not have forgiven myself had I not gone ( I will post some photos from the road trip NM->CO and my visit later on).
