I start work a week on Monday.

It's gonna be a tough first couple of months as I remember / relearn technical shit and get back up to corporate speed while being poor in an expensive city and probably living in hostels.

I joined a weed dispensary already. Was surprisingly easy and swift. Currently vaping some nice sativa concentrate. After 4 months smoking Morocco's trash hash it is quite a treat.

On Tuesday I'll go back to Córdoba for a few nights to pick up a bag and see friends.


Peace,

kowalski

Currently negotiating the starting salary. So it's still not a done deal. I think, and believe I can demonstrate that, 10% more than their opening offer is correct.

I'd meet them halfway, with the caveat that it needs to increase at the same rate that I achieve specific outcomes they've already outlined which are important and valuable... and some of that value needs to be shared with the one who opened the lock behind which it was esconded.

This is completely new ground for me. I never negotiated a starting salary before, previously preferring to seem unproblematic, get the contract and, after proving myself, start negotiating.

*swallows nervously*


Peace,

kowalski

Worked out well. We met at the halfway mark, as I anticipated.

I'm currently in Cordoba to pick up a bag of winter clothes and my skates. Six months have passed without skating. I daydream about skating a lot. Very excited to skate again.


Peace,

kowalski

Any reason you didn't incorporate a little skating into your travels?


Be desireless. Be awesome. Be gone

Most of the time I couldn't have used them (no use in the mountains, nor in the village where I lived the last few months) and carrying them unused would have been very frustrating, they are large, heavy and cause complications at ports. When you are pulling a lot of weight on your back anything that goes unused starts to look like something you should put in a bin.

I'm thinking that in Madrid I might use public transport to get to work then skate home. I wonder how many laptops they'll let me break before they just give me two laptops...


Peace,

kowalski

I've spent longer than expected in Cordoba, mostly due to complications gathering the stuff I'd left here. I took good advantage of the opportunity to create a nice memory of, and better say goodbye to, people here and the city in general.


I had left things with 2 people; Ricardo and Andreas.

A couple of weeks ago Ricardo had a heart attack, he had not told me. He's 46. It took a few days before we met up. He tells me he's fine, just has to eat better and knock off the cocaine use. He had been storing my skates and winter clothes.

Andreas I didn't see or hear from at all. He didn't respond to calls and messages. The girl he was seeing isn't with him anymore and lives in Jaen. He had been storing some documents, a posh chess set and I don't remember what else.

********************************

It'll take some time before I can really evaluate the last year.

All I know now is: I look healthier, my hair is a little longer and I should always live with a cat.


Peace,

kowalski
