Summer time

Since on last Saturday summer has officially started, I could not waste a minute of the perfect weather and opened my swimming season. Ah, good thing that so close to my home there is a lake which I can be easily reached by foot or – if I want to get there faster – by bicycle.

just some 10 minutes of pedaling and there it is...

2 kilometers are like nothing when I’m driven by the desire to plunge into water 🙂 And since the swimming season is open, why limit myself to sunny days only? Any day is a swimming day unless it’s really too cold for that.

almost some personal heaven on earth - green and soft grass, water, and a pleasant company ;)

Also the company on those not so sunny and not so hot days are so much better and so much quieter too 😉

That's what I call good company, when I'm up to enjoy some solitude :D

On the more serious note, I’ve switched jobs like a month ago. Since the job offer was like grab it or loose it, but in either way I’d loose by then my current job, I took my chances and plunged deep into new water. What can I say? I’m starting to dot some ‘eyes’ already, I can state that I’ve forgotten that some companies could be such… joy killers. If I cannot find at least something to enjoy in this new company, then I’ll be back to looking for something else.

Like a neighborhood where my new office is located, there is something fishy about this new company. Can’t yet put a finger on it, neither can I tell if I really can’t find anything to like about this new job, but for a while I’m still about to give it a fair shot.

One of the ugliest of new neighborhoods in Vilnius. Built on a former landfill, with buildings rising up to 12 story high - as if it's NY or something, and with building so close to each other that some balconies come so close to each other that it seems that one could climb balconies to visit his neighbor in another building, this neighborhood leaves me quite depressed

Concrete jungle which leaves me rather depressed and sorry for every one living there

While sometimes world may seem grey, in twilight's grey all the colors are hidden. Learning to find those colors is like making a collage from many and many scraps - it may seem hard, pieces might not fit at the first glance, but that scraps come together in the end. If you enjoy what you find, don't be shy.

    Sorry to hear the new job isn’t working out so well – you wanted to leave the last place so badly! Hopefully it will get better. In the meantime, at least you have your feathery friends and the lake!

    • well, actually it wasn’t a case of me wanting to leave, but that of me having to. My previous company was sold, then re-sold, and this new-new owner was just about to kill us off as a company and fire all of us. So I HAD to get something. Unfortunately so far this ‘something’ looks and feels oh-so bad. Salary’s good, compensations are good, and many other stuff looks damn good on paper in this new company, but something is so off with the overall atmosphere over there, that I wonder how things are getting done if some people do not even communicate normally among themselves, and some just act on their own, where at the very least they should follow some internal rules… Anyway, if bad goes worse, I’ll just leave. Some ten years ago I would have ‘molded’ myself to fit it. Today I’m all too aware that some companies are all the way right for me, and some are about too many personal compromises to make to in any way happy 😉
