Weird Pleasant Interview

Differently from the previous one:  Part I and Part II this one was really cute 😀

Since I have been talking about interviews these last couple of days, part I and part II I am happy to share with you a brief but pleasant one. Keep reading to find out more. 😉

I was waiting for a friend of mine, in “Myslym Shyri” street, next to the Adidas shop , and while scrolling on some random things over my phone, a bunch of kids approaches me.

Saying they were adorable is an understatement, they were so cute and polite and shy which made them even cuter, oh and believe me, I am not the kid lover type… I really don’t know how to behave around them, but that’s a complete different story and these were school children so we are cool.

Evening thoughts

“Sir… Sir, please just 100 lek* please, I am starving!” his voice breaking.

“You can forget about it. I am willing to buy you something to eat, whatever you want, but I ain’t giving you any money. Understood?”

“But they will beat me, they will think I spent it on food… please I am begging you, pleaseeee…” there was panic in his voice but nevertheless he was trying to keep a steady eye contact with pleading teary eyes. Yeah, yeah, I know they train you quite well, but you are not fooling me!

“Then NO!”

Weird Dream

I was tired, actually exhausted and irritated. Another fight with mom about tattoos… What’s the “bound to earth for eternity” supposed to mean and what’s that got to do with getting ink done anyway??

When is this damn bus getting on the way? Can’t wait to get back home. Don’t look at me mom, I am not coming over there. Sitting in the back, suits me just fine, right?


Oh I had fallen asleep, for how long? Mmmm, nice landscape, but still too far from the city.

“Slept well?”- I hear a humming soothing voice next to me.

I turn my head, and I see a familiar face, but I am quite sure, I don’t know her.

“Ugh yeah!”- she is mesmerizing, a hypnotic light on her so dark eyes. I just can’t focus on anything else. I sense her talking and smiling, but can’t make any sense, and I see myself from the outside replying back, there is a background noise during our brief conversation.

Learn to surf

learn

The many of us, repeat the same thing over and over again. We are eager to learn. I am eager to learn, because I have so much to, so it’s imperative for me.

Thing is, that the learning process is not always smooth and quiet, don’t get me wrong, if it was always that easy, probably I would  have learned less and less hehe ;p I am kind of a sucker when it comes to difficult stuff (And I still ask myself: “Why am I always getting in trouble?” Go figure! -_- ). And again, don’t get me wrong I have my moments, I break, I cry, I complain, I whine but the thing is, the final and ultimate thing is, I don’t bend. Not that I am saying it for pride  or anything (ok, maybe just a little) but it’s still a matter of fact.

My dear friend says: “Sto comodo se sto scomodo!” which in English means: “I am comfortable when I am uncomfortable!”

Me and my Ego

ego

Me: I was wrong though you know it.

Ego: What are you talking about? You can’t be wrong!

Me: UUUhhhhmmm c’mon let’s face it! It was a bad call. I made a mistake since the beginning. I shouldn’t have gone along with it. It was wrong, it was wrong and yet… I carried on.

Ego: Are you out of your mind? It’s not your fault…

Me: Oh yeah? And whose fault is it then? Whose fault is it? Answer me.

Ego: How should I know? I know it’s not your fault. Besides even if it is your fault, so what? Are you going to tell everyone that your decision was wrong? Do you even realize what that means? It means that you don’t know what you are doing. It means you are incompetent and useless. Then your word won’t count more than nothing. Everything you have worked for, your reputation, your credibility, the way people look at you, their trust, their faith in you as a leader everything thrown away. Is that what you want?

Me: Of course not. But it’s pretty obvious that I failed and everybody can see that. So as a leader, should take responsibility. That’s what a leader does, I am the one accountable for what happened. Facing my mistake and then take action to amend it. I think people will respect me even more, besides I am human as everyone else. I made an honest mistake trying to make things better, although it turned out the complete opposite. It was a miscalculation which brought this. If I had stopped in time maybe we wouldn’t having this conversation.

Ego: Oh my, oh my! You, freaking idiot, are you blind or what? Yes, human beings can make mistakes, a simple consultant makes mistakes, a simple employee makes mistakes and you give your support and assistance. You on the other hand, NOOO! You are not supposed to make any, that’s why you call the shots, you can’t be wrong, otherwise you get replaced. You get it? The understanding crowd of people, including a directing board or boss, happens only in the movies. There is no twinkle with awe, twinkle with roar maybe! Back to reality, please!

Me: ….So what do we do…?

Ego: Oh finally! Now you are being reasonable. Let’s see…

Life is an algorithm and death sometimes is…

lighter 3
It’s pretty rough, I know but hopefully it serves my purpose well

 

“I wish I had a cigarette. I feel like smoking.”

But I decided to quit so, I need to focus right now.

How do you cope with death?

Why does it feel like this question plops and sinks?

You learn eventually, to cope with life, life is always difficult but it takes longer, so you adjust and evolve as you have no other choice, get ready for the next challenge, a bit harder. Jump little rabbit, yeah, just a bit higher.

I turn 73!

When I turned 52…mmm ;p

Cake tastes like all heavenly sugars and smells like all sweet flavors you put in it.

I enjoy it, you do, they do, we all do. What’s left then? The candles. The number they represent, is it just an angle the way you or I see it?

I am in my late 20s, and I confess that sometimes when I wake up in the morning I just wish I was much older, like 73! Why 73? Why not. Why not 70? or 75? Haha too plain, too mainstream, well 73 sounds like well thought, like I know what I am talking about, but the truth is I don’t. However it sounds kind of cool, because people can’t help asking the questions above. C’mon didn’t you? ;p

Shadows

Living in the shadows, is not the worst of the things that can happen to you.

Living in the shadow of someone else is worse.

Living in the shadow of someone else and feel that you have no way out of it, it’s the worse.

Sometimes it can’t be avoided, sometimes it just feels that way, and in this case it doesn’t even matter if it’s the truth or not, you feel the cold of the eclipse which you witness and what is it that you can do about it. Move away? Go away?

See, the shadows are not so easy to get away from. It’s not them just lurking in, they have this sensory system and feel your darkness, they feel welcomed and they creep over and finally get stitched to your talons. They sense the void in your being and they conquer what you have left for them to fill. This is how the eclipse becomes daily and it’s a part of you and you hate it and yet you embrace it, because suddenly it has been so long and you know no other way to take a breath.

It could take an eternity for one to fully realize let alone to fight the eclipse.

A Vice Perspective


Being a Vice sucks.
I get stuck with all the important things, I am accountable of everything, especially if one of these things goes the wrong way.The work I do, all of it to be marked down by the tiny ugly part of “vice” glued on my title, my responsibilities, my duties, my actions, my words, my… my men, oh but they are not my men… and this is not my ship.

Power, crew, ship, credit are all His, the world knows it’s him doing the things I do.

And what do I get? Vice Captain. Haha what a joke! .

Second in command. A vice captain, almost a captain but never actually being one.

Light thoughts with espresso

I know you want to climb the social ladder as fast as possible. You want to make it to the top and make everybody see you.
I know why. You have that special light all around you. You have those sweet brown eyes like melting chocolate. This is another worldly chocolate, mixed with star-dust and it shines brighter than most.
