This past year I've traveled twice, first time to London for a job interview, in June, and second time to Tbilisi, the place I was born and grew up in. I didn't get the job, I didn't even get the response from them even though they emphatically promised to 'let me know within a week'. Now I know that it was for the better. As I do have other plans. In Tbilisi on the other hand I did everything that I wanted, and more. Funny, you think that you are grown-up, but you still do things and behave in the way to impress other people, and to prove something to them, or to yourself. Well, the latter is pardonable, as long as it worth it in a long run. Why I talk about travel? Lately I've been thinking about my unhealthy attitude toward traveling, as I don't enjoy it, and this is what was wrong with me in the last decade. I want to start traveling again and start enjoying it. Somewhere on the way I've lost that feeling..
I collect things.. I better start by saying that I love history. History fascinates me. And so the material things that reflect this or that historical moment. I see money as means to apply yourself to such activities, hobbies, adventures, passions..
I wanted to write something about my view on relationship, but realized it would sound... well, I felt overwhelmed while I was thinking about it for a few seconds, so I better leave it for another time. Until I'm more clear in my mind about the subject.
....Carrying on two days later. So, briefly - you work on it every day, no, every moment of it actually. I remember I once was in a group setting, the conversation went to the topic of relationship, someone mentioned the importance of establishing mutual trust from the beginning, and then one man asked: 'So, after you've established the trust, she is yours, isn't she?' (Shows quite a common attitude, isn't it?) His question is so loaded with misperceptions that I wouldn't even bother to unravel them. But you've got the point, right?

Some of the material things I own
Good night's sleep
My sentimental attachments
P.S. I have to say, though there is no formal requirement for this kind of talk on this site - I am really moved by the amount of women in here, of all backgrounds and ages, who are looking and sound happy. I know how many of us are just making through life fighting all kinds of sorrows and insults. So to keep up hope and look as beautiful as you are is a real feat.
