I wanna continue to challenge myself, while valuing connections with people

Connecting with people feel happiness

Today, too, I could not sleep until morning. I had a severe cough and ended up waking up at 8:00 pm yesterday, so I couldn’t sleep because of that as well. So I woke up at 1:00 pm. Then, I rushed to code a project that was due on the 18th. It was a lot of work, but the president helped me and we had completed coding many pages. Thanks to his help, I only had to code about 10 more pages. But still, there are too many lower-level pages. And I thought it would be a lot of fun, but also confusing.

Sure, it’s great because there is no design data, so I can code everything as I please. However, it requires a lot of thinking, and I had to think with my head and move my hands at the same time, so I felt that it used a lot of energy.



Playing Chess with the President at Gather

It had been so long since I had played chess that I wondered how long it had been since I had played. I used to play chess with my mother when I was little. However, I had no idea that infantry units could only move diagonally forward, and I wondered if this was a new rule. Every time I play board games with various people, I think that the rules are completely different for each person.

Whether it is Uno or a game of cards, the rules are completely different. The result was a disastrous defeat. I tried to use my head for the first time in a long time, but I couldn’t win. Mr. Sugimoto is too strong. I heard that Mr. Sugimoto himself had gained his experience at a chess playing place in Wakayama Prefecture. At the end of the game, he even suggested that if I put it here, it would be taken away from me, so why don’t I put it here? I was playing while he was teaching me. But that was really fun. I am really glad I became a freelancer. As a freelancer, there is no hierarchical relationship because you are not employed, and you can have interesting discussions while expressing your opinions to each other as equals. I wonder if this is also a privilege of being a freelancer.

We can discuss issues such as employment in Japan, virtual currency, business, and so on. I felt that I really enjoyed exchanging opinions. It was as if I had been waiting for a moment like this. I would like to continue to have serious discussions like this with many people, and I would like to move my business forward with them. It’s so much fun, isn’t it? It’s like a game. So I finished setting up at WordPress and decided to have dinner. Yesterday, I only had a perimeni and fries, and I have really been eating a very small amount of food these days, one meal a day. Since I got sick, eating one meal a day has been enough for me. But it’s amazing how people get used to it.

If I eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, I get hungry if I don’t eat three meals every day, but after a week of eating one meal a day, I’m used to it without any more problems. The good thing, of course, is that I don’t have to pay for food and I don’t gain weight. The bad news is that I get full very quickly. That means you’ll be undernourished. One meal a day is good for the stomach, of course, but it doesn’t seem to provide enough nutrition, so I want to be very conscious of this.



Receiving dessert from a neighbor lady

As I was working, there was a knock at the door. It was like a doughnut, a little hard to the touch, but very, very sweet and delicious. It was great. The aunt had gone to a lot of trouble to bring it for me, and it seemed that she had heard from the manager of my flat that I had a cold, so she knew that I needed some medicine. She knew I had a cold, so she told me to feel free to ask her if I needed any medicine.



It was really nice of her to go out of her way to deliver it in a really friendly manner. Thank you again and again. Madrova. I bowed my head and thanked her. I thought again how lucky I am to have really nice neighbors.



Eating bread with salmon in it at a cafe called GLORIA JEANS

After that, I decided to go out for the first time in a while and went to the city center. There were so many people in the center of Tbilisi, it was like wow. I went to a cafe near there. Actually, I had been wanting to go to this café for a while and had registered it on Google as a place I wanted to go. The name of the cafe is GLORIA JEANS. Interestingly, there is even a security guard at the entrance. Why is there security in such a small cafe? I was wondering why such a small café has a security guard. However, the place was very elegant and smelled wonderful. The interior was really stylish. It was very nice. I had a piece of black bread with salmon in it, which was on display. Then I had a cappuccino.



I always order a cappuccino whenever I go to a cafe, as is my habit. This one costs a whopping 1,000 yen. I think this is expensive, but I am a freelancer, and as long as I make more than this amount in a day, I don’t have a problem with it. I’m sure I made at least 50,000 yen today, so it’s OK. No, don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll be able to do that. Don’t worry about it. Just continuity and hard work, in the right direction of course. And be a person of integrity. And then, develop your analytical and judgment skills, and experiment practically. If you do that, you will definitely be able to continuaslly achieve your goal.

And so I ate outside on the terrace. It was a little cold outside on the terrace. The waitress, an old lady, was very kind as she opened the door to help me carry my cappuccino and bread outside. Besides, the lady was working outside and said, “Yeah, isn’t it cold?” and I responded in my customary Russian. Really, I am still glad I studied Russian for so many years.



I’ve been sleeping in and my mental health is a little down

I also felt that my mental health was a little bit damaged because I had been out of bed for the past two weeks due to a cold. I woke up at 1:00 p.m., and the day feels almost too short. I’ve also been ignored by people I met on Tinder, and even exchanged instagrams and offered to play chess with them, but they ended up canceling that too. And others have ignored me too. I can’t even make friends properly. I’m really depressed. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. I don’t even get any likes. I don’t know why I’m doing this. I feel a little depressed.



It’s important to connect with people after all, isn’t it?

In Russia, I was very popular, but in Georgia, I am not popular at all. And, to begin with, I write that I am looking for friends, but I can’t even make friends. Why? What’s wrong? What is wrong with me? It was a traumatic experience for me, and I sometimes wonder if I am unattractive. But you know, it’s not like that at all. It’s just bad luck and bad timing. There are 8 billion people in the world, and the other day I was picked up just for reading a book in a park, so of course this is just bad luck.

This is temporary. I have charm, so I’m fine. Maybe someone is telling me that now is not the right time. Besides, I’ve only been here for almost a month now, so it’s natural that I’m still getting used to it. Don’t worry. You really don’t need to worry, I promise. I’m going to continue to take on more and more new challenges, and I have a hostel stay experience waiting for me, and I’m looking forward to seeing how I do there. How I will respond.



Of course, being able to work as a freelancer while moving around the world is truly enviable from the perspective of those who are employed, but there are still downsides and hardships. So, in the end, I feel that we are all the same. It’s okay. I am fine. Anyway, let’s enjoy this situation. In the future, I’m sure I’ll be able to talk about it in an interesting way. That’s all right. But I hope that I can continue to build up my connections with people.

Friends that I can meet when I come back to Georgia in the future. It would be so nice to have friends like that. I would like to make friends like that. I want to make them all over the world. If I do that, I’ve already won. Yes. I want to make branches all over the world. I think that is really important. Of course, it is important to have fun at ONS and FWB, but that is not real networking. So, if you really want to get to know someone, in the case of a girl, she is a friend.
And so, I was working on making my media WordPress. The time was past 8pm and it was getting cold by now, so I decided to leave. In the meantime, listening to Anti-Hero by Taylor Swift. Now I guess the challenge is to translate it into English.
