A couple of years ago I met people while travelling with lifestyles I envied. Now I'm the person with the lifestyle other travellers envy. Feels good.

Specifically the fact that I figured out what I was envious of, and made it happen for myself. Not the being subject of envy part.

Not bragging, except I am, because I LOVE living like this and am PROUD of myself for just doing what I felt like even though it was easy and natural to do so.

Now 'scuse me while I go stand in a ten person line for the single hostel toilet for the fifth day in a row.

Workplace design for small people: make sure when the chair is at its highest, the arms don't align perfectly with the desk preventing it from sliding all the way under.

Also.. make the highest height of the chair higher. I am so smol.

  • Bussed to Kaunas.
  • Settled in to a hostel and co-working space.
  • Did a bunch of i18n related stuff involving babel extractors and the transifex API for OCDS extensions.
  • Generally explored Kaunas city center, ate lots of good food.
  • Went to Kaunas botanical gardens and for a long walk along the river.

Last summer I listened endlessly to Sia, and now the sound of her voice POWERFULLY invokes sunny Sarajevo; the feeling of hanging out by myself in my little flat, making flatbreads and waiting 4 hours for beans to cook in my half-assed kitchen, and feeling very very sad about something. If I'm feeling even a tiny bit fragile, just a couple of seconds of hearing her can make me burst into tears on the spot, from a combination of how I was feeling last summer, and a touch of Sarajevo-homesickness. Doesn't even have to be a song I know, just her voice. Which is slightly problematic, as she's still played in public spaces a lot. And also because I just want to listen to her when I need something bouncy and sometimes I can't.
