We are going to Ukraine with our youth group to work with street kids this Summer. I am so excited!! It’s just over the border with Hungary, though, so my Russian will be of little use. In that part of the country the people speak exclusively Ukrainian. This comes with the attitude of: Ukraine for the Ukrainians! In other words, all others have to clear out and return to wherever they (or their ancestors) came from.
So, naturally, I ordered a Ukrainian language course. And I have started to learn Ukrainian – which is a lot of fun. It is different from Russian, yet I can read everything – even when I don’t understand a word of it :).
The sun has been out to play several days in a row. This makes me ridiculously happy. So I thought I needed a party. And because I won’t be here when I do have my birthday in Summer, why not celebrate it right about now? I also owed my house a party to warm it up. Two good reasons to party, is it not?
So, naturally, I invited about 30 people to come to my party in a couple of weeks time. I came across cheap and fun invitations, wrote them out, and handed them out or sent them by mail. A couple of people I called. Now the planning for food is going on. A lot of fun!
My house needs some attention as well. And of course a number of people I haven’t talked to in a while. It’s fun to get in touch with them again. During my time being sick I didn’t see too many people, cuz that’s what happens when you aren’t well. Hard to cope with others when you are struggling yourself. So, naturally, now is the time to bug them :).
As I still have to catch up on my computer stuff and all, I stay up late. Or early, it depends which way you look at it. It’s not thát bad, really, I still get about 6 hours sleep at night. Sometimes more, sometimes less. But overall not too bad. I mean, really!
When with other people I become virtually a chatterbox. It’s hard for me to shut up. Hm, that one is not always too easy.
Do you think I might be a touch hypomanic?
