1 out of 2 plus 0.3

This is the status of the tasks I managed to complete today… I woke up at 6 AM :(( Dad drove mom and I to Pitesti, directly to stay in line to be scheduled for passport. I stayed 1h in that line, outside, in the rain, time in which mom went and paid the fees for pass and driver’s licence.

I managed to complete 0.75 from the passport renewal task, the rest of 0.25 consists in filling up a power of attorney for daddy to pick it up in 10 working days, when it is ready, because I have to fly back until then… And then to find a way for me to receive it.

The driver’s licence task… only 0.25 completed… after I spent almost all day on Tuesday filling up all the medical checks and staying 2h in another line this morning, after I got my order-number for the passport picture and stuff.

The thing is.. Some months ago they have apparently implemented an online appointment service, which seems to fail with honours for some cases, like mine. Plain stupid bureaucracy.

Because, when I had it clear that I can fly to RO, when I booked my plane tickets almost one month ago, there were no more places left to make an appoinment for these days, when I was able to take free day. And currently all places are booked until August 3rd = stupid system.

However, from all info my parents were able to gather from other people and what I read also on the internet, there was still a possibility to show up there directly, without appointment, in an additional line.

Yeah.. after waiting 2h in that line, (I was the 3rd when I got there), so happy that I finally got inside, I am asked: “Do you have an appointment for today?” “No”. “Is your driver’s licence expiring today?” “No”. “Good-bye, then. Next!!”

“Wait, what, why?!”, I said. “The line is only for expired, stolen, lost or name-change”. “What?!!” “I didn’t know this… Nobody told me this… So what you’re trying to say now is that, if my driver’s licence is not yet expired, I have to come again when it will, in order to make it? Please, I don’t live in RO anymore, I cannot come again also in August when it will be expired or when I can find more places for an online appointment. Please!”

And then she told me to go to the Bucharest Office, because, seemingly,  only there they do also non-expired and without appointment. And to stop arguing with her and to leave, because I’m losing the time for the other people.

I didn’t know if to feel ashamed, perplexed or just amused by the situation. But then, when I found out that the fee paid in my county, is not valid also in Bucharest Office and I will have to pay it again, I knew exactly how I felt: very angry. And is not about the money that I was angry, I was angry because of the faulty overall process.

In conclusion… I tried to be a diligent citizen and to show up here in time, before the expiration, and I found a bug in the system. Somebody please help me fix it.

Or to change my permanent residence, do it in CZ and give it a big fat Zero fuck to this faulty RO system. 😀 But then I will have to do the passport again on the new address 😦 … That’s why my EGO is never satisfied, because it didn’t have from where to learn better, by growing up in this system.

Oh yeah.. The extra 0.3.. Something else that didn’t work as expected showed up, right after we returned from Pitesti and we had to stay another 30 min in the bank to fix it, but it was something that will help us also for the future.

Conclusion 2: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune AND Pluto are currently retrograde. So, I should be grateful I managed to complete even this 1 out of 2. See you again in August.. Or should I pay a visit also to the Bucharest Office (pun intended)?

Crossed over 1 million

Since I had to give up killing minions when they moved me into this wing without wifi, I was struggling to find some fun meditative way of killing time. And some days ago I noticed I have this Bejeweled 3 installed on my tablet. It’s fun and it’s very successful in putting my thoughts in order while playing.

And after surprising myself yesterday with a 900k score, way higher than previous ones, now I just passed the milestone of 1.000.000 points :D.

Ignore that the total time says 2h, it’s because I had to put tablet away when doctor came and then for lunch…Screenshot_2016-03-19-13-18-28

Now, unrelated to the game, last night I dreamed about some millions also… a fix figure of 7 million RON, to be more precise.

And about me having two lovely children, Silvia and Serban, and, after putting them to sleep in their beds, I was about to cheat on my husband at some gathering in the living room of my house where everyone was drinking red wine from what ever cup or glass or bottle they could find.. Deep passionate kissing counts as cheating? Or maybe that one was the actual husband!? :))

My first portrait drawing ever

Last evening at around 6 it came to me the idea to try drawing a portrait, one that I saw on facebook at some point and I saved it in my phone. Now I saw it can be found here. Please note the originals are digital..

So this is my first portait ever. Not even in school I had to draw something lke this… and I know the quality is proportional with the time spent in the details, but so far I’m happy with the result, considering I did it while looking at the picture in the phone and lying in bed, not even at the desk. It took me 3h the draft with mechanical pencil 0,5 mm and another 4h to color it with normal colored pencils.

And I am aware that the girl in the draft looks more cute than the one in the colored portrait 😀 it’s because of the sparks in the eyes and slightly different shape of the mouth, but the colored one seems to look more like the original. Anyway it’s much harder to work lights with colors, especially on manual drawing, when you don’t have the opaque white pencil, which is first thing I’ll buy when I’ll be out. And a set of water painting pencils. The pictures are  made with the phone, HDR mode.

day 5.. +6+7+8+9

555994_501742499948476_1379520313_nThis made me happy today (day 5):
I found it on FB and I know that it represents the Broadway towers, Gloucestershire, England. It instantly reminded me of the landscape I saw in my mind when I wrote this.
Day 6: I don’t remember anything about this day. Which is actually making me happy.

Day 7: I took the afternoon off from work and after I solved the embassy thing, I had the idea to climb by foot to Petrin 🙂 And somewhere very close to Nebozizek I found these heavenly snowdrops:IMAG0438
Day 8: I found out about one Screenwriting workshop in Prague!!! Screenwriting, in English, 3 days of workshop, at the end of March!!!
Day 9: I’m going to cinema with my Leo, to “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”.

Fallen (2007)

Turns out my crush for Paul Wesley is growing minute with minute as I watch this movie, where he plays an 18 years old guy.. while being 25. I like him much more here, than in some Vampire Diaries episodes where he is so skinny and wearing make-up..

Anyway. turns out I like the story/plot of this movie also 🙂 And the fact that he has spoken in 3 languages in the first half of the first episode, besides speaking with his dog, what can I say.. he must be divine :DD

These Mars in Libra people… with Venus in Cancer. And Leo Sun. :DD

PS-Update. WOW, this was my 555 post!!! Congratulations me for managing to keep a blog for this long!

Mojo fun

Tonight at karaoke, in Mojo, I resonated very much with this song:
and the girl who sang it was very good! Playing on repeat, right now.

Too bad I couldn’t stay more in the karaoke because my head suddenly started to hurt.. lost my tolerance to smoke in the past year. 😦 Which was good actually, because I caught the last metro to Dristor 2.
