I cannot help bragging, I’m sorry. But this is my life right now, going to places like this:
And on regular weekdays, I follow up my eight hours in a beautiful library by walking next door to the most pleasant swimming complex I have ever seen:
I am not usually inclined to believe that things can be this good. But somehow they are? I eat food that someone else cooks, I reread War and Peace, I knit things while I drink coffee on a terrace overlooking the Untersberg. Do I deserve this? Probably not. I promise that I also spend a fair amount of time worrying about the future and applying for jobs and thinking of ways in which I can better myself in order to restore some karmic balance to the world.
Also, I miss my cat very much. I think about that a lot.
