Анушка вече е купила олиото...
Ok, maybe the first entry for this year is more or less close to the end of it. Facebook has made having a journal more or less obsolete, for me at least. When you do not need to really express yourself, but just draft one person\na, and go on observing the social life of other people. Like one colleague of mine. She wrote once in her status "OMG, today I'm so busy, that I don't even have the time to get on facebook". Well apparently she did find the time to do so.
Very static. You can't go on and read what you've written months, or even years ago, and risk being ashamed of it. You can't figure out whether you've become a better person. What you're getting instead is the tabloid reality of your friends, which entertains you for the time being, and doesn't leave a lasting impression of creativity, or observation, or whatever.
So... I guess I should finally really get back to LJ. Social sites are cool and entertaining, even sometimes addictive, but they're not sensational.
Anyway. For the last 11 months things went in a totally different way. I finally had to start paying for all the carelessnes of recent years, and that's not fun at all. It's time to move on, and have a restart. Which is what I am working on at the moment. Just have to figure out what sort of a restart should it be. Another escape, to a new reality, for ease of reference - geographically. And it should be the centre of an empire. I need something cosmopolitan.
Vienna or London, I guess, out of convenience, since Istanbul and Moscow are unaccessible for the time being. Life will show.
