I'm reading in the park,  I get picked up.

I’m reading in the park, I get picked up.

It is still in bad shape.

Today when I woke up this morning, I had great phlegm. It was painful. I couldn’t speak at all, and that was because I had hard phlegm stuck in my throat. I coughed a lot, hoping to expel it somehow, and it came out several times. But still, it’s really painful. I feel like I have a fever today. I have no idea why this is, but it gets better or worse day by day, so I don’t know. Maybe this is just a corona thing.

So I went to the supermarket and bought some shaberma stuff today. Then three napkins and some pomegranate juice. I think this is really good for thirst. So I came back from the supermarket and ate that.

But I didn’t have much of an appetite, so I went out to buy some medicine right away anyway. I used the six lemon powder pills I had bought the other day right away, so I bought another six. In my opinion, this medicine is really a panacea. At the very least, I think ibuprofen for pain and general cold medicine are essential when going abroad.

So, with the support of the admin lady again, she taught me the medicine and I went to the place I went the other day to buy some medicine. Today, I said “madrova” at the supermarket and at the drugstore. I was happy to see that everyone smiled when I said it. It made me smile too.

So I walked my usual path and arrived home. Today, I thought I would read a book for the first time in a while, so I bought a Kindle book from Amazon. I am looking forward to reading it. It seems like I haven’t been able to do much in the way of studying lately, so I want to make sure I’m working hard.


I decided to read in a nearby park.

I also went to a nearby park and decided to read a book there.Book written by Naval Ravikant, Silicon Valley’s most important thinker. I was sitting on a park bench reading that book. I found myself very absorbed in it.

The most important thing I learned is that you still can’t get rich by selling out your time. It means always thinking in terms of compound interest and productizing wealth. In other words, wealth is what can be converted into money even when you are sleeping. It means to productize it as quickly as possible and to increase its scale. And, to thoroughly hone one’s innate special abilities, in other words, one’s individuality, and create something that only one can do. This is really important, he said. There really seems to be a lot to learn.


For the first time in my life, I get picked up.

I was reading a book when suddenly a Russian-speaking girl sitting across from me came over and said, “Can I get your number? It was the first time in my life that I was picked up by someone. And since she was asking me in Russian, I wasn’t sure if I could speak properly, but of course I said yes. So we exchanged telegrams. I was calm from start to finish. I didn’t get embarrassed, and I didn’t lose my normal posture.

She was probably about three years younger than me. I was not feeling well, so I didn’t have much ability to speak, but I asked her where she was from, and she said Severodonetsk, Ukraine.

In other words, it was a keystone of the Donetsk Oblast. I see. I was surprised! I thought. But her hands were shaking, too. I have no idea what’s so attractive about me. My hair is badly styled today, I’m not feeling well right now, I don’t look cool, and I was just sitting in the park reading a book, so I wonder what’s so attractive about me. And even her hand is shaking. But I was happy. Like this, “can I ask for your number?” was the first time in my life that I had been picked up out of the blue like this, so I thanked her. I was very happy.

She told me she was going to go right away and write you later and she left that place. I didn’t look at her after that and continued reading patiently. But to be honest, all I could think about inside my brain was how she picked me up, and I was grinning and thinking that I should have smiled more, or said thank you in Ukrainian. I wish I could have been more genuine without being so pretentious, but I also don’t want to be made fun of.


Life is interesting after all. Unpredictable.

But it was still so great. The park gave me such a new experience. After all, life is about choices. If I had not bought the book and been to the park, I would not have met this person. But I met her because I had to. So it was not a coincidence, but an inevitability. Life is interesting.

And so, as night fell, I did not go out anywhere far today, but bought some bread nearby. The bakery today did not have a menu, so I pointed to a bread that looked delicious and said, “Please give me this one”. What came out was bread mixed with rice and meat. It was a strange feeling, but I was glad to experience a new sensation.

A bakery that sells my favorite bread.

Chat with today’s girl on Telegram

At night I was chatting on Telegram with a girl who asked me for my phone number today. To my surprise, she mistook me for about 16 and she was 15, apparently having come to Georgia from Severodonetsk in 2014. Still, I was indeed too happy or a bit shocked to see that I looked 16.

But why did you want to get to know me so badly by asking me for my number? I asked her why she wanted to get to know me, and she said because I am beautiful. I am more interested in living beautifully than in being cool, so I am very happy to hear the word beautiful. Thank you very much.
