Dumb and dumber [08 Oct 2006|12:48am]

Originally published at Nadya De Angelis. You can comment here or there.

Watched it until very late, could not sleep afterwards. Very often I just can’t switch off my Interior Controller in the evening, thinking that I still have to do this and that and check something and wash the dishes etc… Why am I a human being and not a robot?

Gray day, sleepy and headache.

The office: 10 things I miss [08 Oct 2006|07:45am]

Originally published at Nadya De Angelis. You can comment here or there.

Inspired by this post of Petite Anglaise, I started to think about what I miss. I spent in the office 3 years and 6 months. A lot of time! Say, 1/10 part of my whole life! Now I am free. So, what do I miss?

  1. Salary. That’s the biggest loss. I am not a money addict, but still it was a pleasant feeling, to get it each and every month.
  2. Books. I worked in a magazine, and publishing houses often sent us books for reviews. Most of them we could keep. Like a very nice book by Orhan Pamuk “Istanbul: Memories and the City” that I am reading at the moment (russian edition).
  3. Address and reception. The office was much easier to reach than the place where I live. And the deliveries were safer. And I didn’t have to wait for them, I could ask the receptionists. Though unfortunately at least two of my recent packages sent to the office got lost: a letter from my dearest friend B and two pairs of sexy stockings from LadyBwear. After a long e-mail correspondence LadyBwear decided to be nice and gave me my money back. Now all the deliveries come to my dad’s place, where they are destroyed by Gru the dog.
  4. Pictures of me. Each month new pictures of me were taken by the art director or designer, to be published with “editor’s letter”. It was amazing to track the changes in the way I looked. Also, it confirmed that I looked good:-) Which is important.
  5. Business trips and visas. Well there was only one business trip that I really liked - to Tokyo. Tickets are expensive, japanese visa is comlicated to get - I don’t think I could afford it myself. Business trips to Europe were really boring, and usually to the cities I don’t like, that is, Milan or Hamburg. But when I had a Shengen multientrance visa, I felt that I can go to Europe any moment. Now it’s complicated. I got my last Italian visa 8 hours before the flight, in the middle of the night. Yes, Italian embassy in Moscow works extrahours! Nice of them, but still, I would have preferred to get it in time (I applied for the visa one month before the planned trip!).
  6. People to do things that I don’t want to do myself. I had people to write, to find pictures, to check facts, to scan things etc. Now I have to do everything myself! I only have a housemaid, who comes once a week, on Mondays. But I have to pay her myself, from the money that I no longer earn!:-) And these people were paid by the company.
  7. A phone, a printer and a scanner. Of course I do have a phone at home, but it works so badly that I prefer to use the mobile, which is expensive. I don’t have a printer and a scanner. And I am ashamed to admit that I don’t know how to use a scanner:-)
  8. Focus Giochi & Enigmistica. It’s the only magazine that I really enjoyed, from the dozens of magazines that I had to look through. I like games. I’m thinking about making a blog about games.
  9. Walks. I like walking with my mp3player. I could go for a walk whenever I wanted. Nobody could control that. I could be walking, listening to the music and still be paid! That’s a nice feeling. Why can’t I go for a walk now? Good question. I don’t know. There are always other things to do. Also, I don’t like the area where I live.
  10. Motivation to wear heels. I feel so beautiful on heels!:-)
