The Longing

I’ve seen many men wandering
all strong and brave and keen
Seen them growing into rulers
but I long for the sea
Heard a ship came from North
to our harbour for a day
and before misfortune knows
I’ll be on my way

I’m all set to veer away
and I’m all set to go astray
All burdens I will leave ashore
to find what I’ve been longing for

Don‘t tell anyone
that this night I’ll be gone
Greeting the eternal blue
right at the break of dawn
Sailing t‘wards the unknown
with my crew on the sea
And the day that I return
a hero I shall be

I’m all set to veer away
and I’m all set to go astray
All burdens I will leave ashore
to find what I’ve been longing for

Walk in the morning

It’s pretty helpful to get up early and have a walk in the morning.

How the story started? I looked into my refrigerator today and it way empty. The grocery store next to my place would have opened at 9.30. So I decided to go to the Rechnoi Vokzal metro station and have a breakfast there. To be sure, the mall opens at 10 o’clock, I had to wait until because I wasn’t willing to go to McDonald that morning. It’s was quite rainy outdoors. Fortunately there is a visor on the hood of my jacked (I didn’t know it before). Thus I hung around there in the bus stop, went over the drugstore and all. Then I went to the mall, the third floor where the foodcourt is. There is a cafe with a funny name Mu-Mu (they have a cow as their mascot). I have a lunch there usually, but it’s was time for a breakfast. So I took two eggs, fried potatoes and a sausage, a big cup of cappuccino and Berlin’s cookie. All that stuff costed quite cheap. That’s why I love having breakfast not in home. It’s cheap, tasty, you can eat everything you want without being concerned about calories, because when you leave, you go for a walk and you can walk five or even ten kilometers easily. I do that way so. After having a online conversation with my friends then my mother, I hit the road way home on my feet.

Frankly, I don’t like to have a walk in the weekends. Moscow is too crowded. No business lunches, and cinema tickets are expensive. Well, actually, I’m going to do some work today, and housework too. Sort of vacuum cleaning and laundry. Work helps me not to feel lonesome…

English starting from this day

As you may know my personal blog have been hacked. I’ve lost all my photos (luckily I have copies on the other sites). The theme is set to default and all. I might feel sore about it though. But also it’s a sign (perhaps from above) to change something. Sort of drastic changes. I’ve decided to run the blog in English further. I’m not a good English writer, but I really enjoy studying the English language. It’s my chance to practice in writing, even though nobody read those messages, it doesn’t matter. I read books now in English, it certainly helps to memorise collocations, expressions and sentences I’ve recently read. Moreover it helps me to adjust my mind to the way of English thinking, to keep my internal monologue flow in English. I really enjoy it to tell you the truth. As a matter of fact I feel sometimes that it’s closer to me and my personality to think in English but it still seems to be difficult as if I were a child with poor vocabulary. By the way, hooray! I’ve just written all this text having looked just a couple of times to the dictionary. It’s full of mistakes, I know. «The person who never made a mistake never tried anything new» (it’s a quote of the wiseman).
