tinywonder and the no good, horrible, overwhelming bureacracy


Recommended Posts

Oh, I need to make goals...

Wow I've not been here in a while, it looks  a little different.  

 

So, I've up and moved to faraway during a global pandemic, for the best more amazing program/job, and long-story short, it was taken away from me.  Not because of Covid, even, but because of a government takeover of the school... Things are weird out here in Eastern Europe.

So my priority is mostly "move forward", whatever that looks like, and "pick up the pieces."

 

My main goal is to GET VACCINATED.  But that's super complicated here (currently: impossible), and it's really not even a goal, because once I am able I will absolutely do it, it's not like I have to "work towards it".  I need the government to work towards me (according to them I can register now, but turns out that's a lie.  So... I am stuck).  Then there's the option of moving back to the US for a short undefined period of time, to get easily vaccinated, but managing insurance while I'm there, plus being sure I can still get back here (though to a different country), is turning out quite a chore.  So I don't know.  But I do know that is my goal number one.

 

My stress levels are off the gosh darn charts, so I am going to try to make manageable goal number two something yoga-related.  I messed up my shoulder here, so I've avoided my long beloved push-ups for stress management routine, but maybe yoga and stretching will help it heal (it seems like a torn rotator cuff or tendonitis) 

So my goal is to get on the mat every day, doesn't matter what time, just put in the 20-30 minutes of yoga.  It would really be good for me, I think, but for some reason it's nigh impossible for me to motivate in that direction.  Still, putting it on the list.

 

My second goal beyond that is to maintain a ritual I've made up while I'm here, which is a 4km or so walk to (and return from) an island park.  I've been going every day and feeding crows there.  Religiously.  And I have befriended a few who will check on me and eat out of my hand.  It's the best therapy, honestly.

 

That's all really... yoga, try not to get overwhelmed by nonsense I can't control, and feed some birbs.

YES!

I was hoping you'd find me, because I had no idea what your handle was in here!!! Now I am following you and feeling a little guilty for having not done any yoga yet today, (oh, goals, I knew ye...)
BUT THAT'S BECAUSE I JUST REGISTERED FOR VACCINATION!

 

Which is.... still complicated, I'll likely have to turn down the first two appointments, I am certain they will try to give me Sputnik or Sinopharm before that sweet, sweet, AstraZeneca, Jansen, Moderna, or Pfizer... I am thinking AZ is my ticket, because while not approved in US, it is approved in EU and I think this country (why am I so protective of calling it out? It's HUGARY and sometimes it makes me VERY FRUSTRATED!) has quite a bit of it, so while everyone is scrambling for Pfizer which I am not eligible for here (only second-shots and 16-18 year olds can get it now), I'm gonna try for AZ and just GET VACCINATED. UGH.

So are you saying that particular Eastern European Country leaves you Hungry for some government efficiency?

Did my pun drive you away?

 

Ach! No!  I was driven away by BUREACRACY!  But also, fun to mention I am moving from Hungary (so many puns, but pretty hunger-based to be fair) to THE CZECH REPUBLIC.... so many more pun options, so many puns I say accidentally. "Let me check." "My Czechs mix" (that one was intentional and no one understood it). "My Czech book" (meaning my textbook for language learning, but... you understand...)

BUT!  BUT!!!

Okay so I've done nary a yoga move, possible because I have to keep the mat rolled up on the shelf or a certain cat baby will tear the ever living shit out of it... but I have failed at yoga.  Fine.

But I have NOT failed at walking every day.  My crows, and now pigeons greet me when I enter the park.  They know me.  They wait for me.  It's amazing.  I will miss them so much when I leave.

 

AND FINALLY.  I have been vaccinated.  I should have full efficacy in another week. The rebellion faction of my school (yes, I am serious) organized with a sympathetic doctor and was able to get a bunch of us the Janssen (J&J) vaccine last Friday.  Incredible.  We did it.  They did it.  For me.  It was done.  Incredible.

I am going to go for another walk soon, and maybe I'll do some yoga when I return, but probably not.  I'm in full job-finding mode, but was offered a position teaching online at a Chinese school, and I will probably take it, and build a freelance business around it... but for now... Oh I don't know what for now...

I think resting might be my next goal.  I am seriously lacking in the rest department.
