UPD: early autumn vibes

Leave a comment

Hey hey hey! I am using the free time I sometimes have now to fill in the blog as much as possible so that I don’t have any postponed stuff left by the time WS’15-16 begins at my Uni. So here we go with an update of what’s been happening with me after the summer vacation,

At the moment I am doing a sommer uni which is an express semester: those who are accepted to it can finish whole course in just 4-5 intensive classes. It is usually 6 hours of theory several times, practice, maybe a tutorium and then final tests, all in September for summer term and in February for the one in winter. I doubt I would apply for an express semester in WS, I need a break at that time of the year. But the summer vacation is somehow too long for me. Might sound extremely weird, but last year I really got bored from 4 months off; all friends were already back to work/studies. If not that amazing totally spontaneous trip to Cyprus, I’d be dying from nothing to do. I need to keep my brain working. And sommer uni is also a great possibility because for me completing the whole course in just couple weeks is much easier than rarely concentrating on it having just 1.5-3hrs a week and then trying to remember/learn all at once before an exam 6 months later. I am thankful to Vienna system for such things as crash courses, too, as they give a chance to absorb all info at short period with no stupid pauses. So, my studies is already on!

But having to attend theory classes, learning some computer programming and solving production&logistics problems don’t kill my mood at all. There is still a lot to do in the city in September; this week is a Design week, for example, and later today I am attending an event at some new place where I was suddenly invited just several hours ago.

Along with some studies, I have been meeting some friends and hanging out with my boyfriend who I missed during summer vacation when sometimes we weren’t seeing each other for weeks. Trip to beloved Saint-Petersburg, seeing my family, traveling all around Italy with friends, visiting Monaco, France and Spain – those were all cool times. But all good things come to an end. To let better things appear, I believe. So at the moment I am happy to be in Vienna (even though I already feel like starting to plan a new trip).

Motto am Fluss, again and again

Naschmarkt brunch is always a good way to start a day

Loos bar is good, but choose only the weekdays!

…but always better with some food!

I missed not only my boyfriend and friends but also Vienna bars, let’s be completely honest. Those are good. Those I like. Sometimes knowing the places and who you are going to meet there feels even better than exploring while traveling, not knowing what the night is going to turn out to be like. Of course, I am not that old and boring yet. But I already tend to look for some comfort while going out. Sad to realize that when I remember our crazy nights in the middle of nowhere in some far away country; dancing like crazy on the liners not caring that we arrive to port at 7 a.m. and have had no sleep in 3 days; wearing hight heels for many days just because the bag is full with camera equipment and normal shoes don’t fit in there; jumping in the swimming pool all dressed up and even with the shoes on. I’d definitely do all that again now! But there is a huge difference between 17 and 22, that I admit. But looking at my older boyfriend who parties crazier than we do, I believe that the best fun is still about to come within next 10-15 years 😉 And now let me just chill in those classy bars in the first district of Vienna, dance only at cool parties and then order prosecco for breakfast. Sometimes not less fun than finding your shoe in the swimming pool at all! Craziness is for special times, native bars are always.My love had a Birthday last week which I was very excited about as well. More party! And a home-made cake, my first performance ever in making one. I love Birthdays. And when my beloved ones have them I am even more happy than when mine is about to come.September is rich with the emotions as many close people celebrate. My dad had his yesterday and calling them to Italy hearing their happy voices while they are getting their seafood and drinks makes me fulfilled. Thank you all for being so much fun and bringing this fun to my life!

Talking about party, T.G.I.F., guys! Have as much fun as I have recently had 😉

RUS: Ребята, привет! Пользуясь наличием свободного времени до начала основного семестра, стараюсь залить в блог как можно больше и ничего не откладывать, так как учеба меня ждет напряженная. На самом деле я сейчас уже делаю летний экспресс-семестр. И спасибо большое универу за такую возможность, как и спасибо всяким краш-курсам: выучить весь материал всего предмета, просидев по 6 часов несколько дней, мне намного легче, чем едва-едва концентрируясь на нем 1-2 пары в неделю и потом судорожно пытаясь вспомнить/заново выучить весь материал перед экзаменом полгода спустя. Так что несколько теоретических дней, практика и пара курсов по программированию ничуть не портят мой сентябрь. Это даже лучше, чем в прошлом году, когда я уже устала от отдыха на четвертом месяце, и мне было некуда себя деть. Звучит странно, но мне нужно что-то делать, иначе я с ума схожу. Так что все поездки (ссылки на рассказы о них есть в английской версии поста) – это прекрасно, но я рада быть дома (хотя уже планирую заняться новой поездкой).

К счастью в Вене сейчас не скучно. Идет неделя дизайна, например, и я через пару часов собираюсь на мероприятие, куда меня спонтанно пригласили только сегодня утром.

Я скучала по Штефану. И по венским барам тоже скучала. Проведя там за последние недели немало вечеров, я понимаю, что иногда мне приятнее знать места и публику, чем даже исследовать новую местность в поисках веселья. Не подумайте, что я совсем состарилась и стала скучной. Конечно, спонтанные ночи в других городах, пляски до прибытия в порт на теплоходах и прыжки в бассейн при полном параде – это круто, и я и сейчас бы все это повторила! Но между 17 и 22 есть разница, не могу ее не замечать. Хотя, глядя на Штефана, который меня старше, но тусит веселее нас всех, я еще верю, что самые огненные ночи впереди 😉 Но для бешеных поступков есть особое время, а для родных баров подойдет любой вечер.

К слову о веселье. Всех с пятницей!
