Short update

As the title says, short update is shrt. Ok, maybe not that short.

 

Conditions have improved slightly. With a short budget, I was able to buy decent bed sheets, a pillow, and even scent candles for my bedroom. It looks more like an ordinary simple bedroom now, less depressing, and the landlords were nice enough to provide another mattress. But I think our definitions of comfort are way offtrack, because the new mattress is made of foam, and I'm buried inside it. And I don't have the heart to tell them the other mattress I complained about is actually better than this "new" one (it looks old and used). They're nice people, and even taught me a few Greek words, but yes, our definitions of comfort are incompatible.

 

I have meet my Greek dissertation coordinator, a fine one, and I already have stuff to do. But right now, I'm not really in the mood to write a required short list of game creation guidelines. Maybe I have become too attached to the Greek coffee, and now I feel sleepy. And my back has seen better days too, almost every night, I take my laptop  to the pubs and bars zone in Trikala, to get at least one hour of free Internet, but I still end up paying around 2 euros, because the only fitting places where I can sit are inside the coffee shops, where I have to at least order a drink. And keep in mind I'm short, I have back problems easily, and my laptop backpack, even reduced to its essentials, can weight 6kg.

 

And this wouldn't be necessary if the Portuguese who were in this apartment before us didn't cancel out their Internet connection, even knowing there were other students coming who needed it. Because they had to give their ID/passport information for the connection, they're afraid we would not pay for the Internet, and they would be the ones with the debts. They also didn't bother answering my email sent in January, which they say they never received, yet my Gmail says otherwise.

 

So, dear previous Portuguese Erasmus students who were in Athinas Erganis, 26: I owe you a baseball bat against your foreheads.
