This last week was a little crazy and weird at the same time. In the mornings I went to university and basically our courses last until around 1 pm. After that we had the whole day free. But I wish I could’ve just came home and lay in bed. Wednesday, when I came home I had an amazing surprise. When I tried to turn the light on in the bedroom, my light bulb just stopped working. I tried to change it nothing. I already started panicking because I had no idea how to fix a broken installation. I called my father and he told me first to change the switcher. He explained to me step by step how to do it and to my surprise I actually managed to do it (I was very careful and while I was doing that I switched off electricity in the whole house). But it still wasn’t fixed. That meant there was a problem with the socket. I went to the general store and bought a light socket. I managed to change it after struggling with the short wires I have in my bedroom and after that it still didn’t work. Then my father told me that the problem is with the wires. It was already late so I was supposed to change the wires the next day. The next day I had to run some errands in the city and after that, on my way home my driving instructor called me to ask if I am available to take my class that day in half an hour because somebody cancelled their lesson that day. I accepted because I want to finish with driving soon, cause it seems like I am taking the driving classes since … forever. Of course I was late by 10 minutes because I got stuck in traffic. After my driving class I went again to the general store and bought some wires and I was lucky that the vendor game a tip about some connectors for electricity wires. While I was trying to get rid of the plastic over the copper wire, the old wire broke into my arms. I had literally just 2 cm of wire left in the ceiling. I managed to put the wire into the connector and mount the new wires with the socket. After two days of hard work and learning a lot of new things about wires and connectors and electricity I managed to make my lighting in my bedroom work again. I was so happy and relieved that I did it.
You might wonder why I did it myself. Well my experience with plumbers in Bucharest is that they charge a lot for so little they do. And I guess electricians do the same. So in three years, since I don’t have my father to fix things for me, when something from my plumbing broke, I learned how to fix it myself (of course minor problems, not changing the whole pipe or anything). So now since I didn’t wanted to pay an electrician a lot of money for changing some wires, I wanted to learn how to do it myself and I succeeded. I am very proud of myself regarding this matter, because it feels really good when you can fix something by yourself. I used to watch my father fixing things all the time while I was at home, and I enjoyed it very much. I was hoping one day I will get the chance to do that, so now I have it.
The rest of the week was all school and driving lessons and chatting with friends. I really enjoy this about university. But I hate what I am studying right now. I am into orthopedics until October 28th and it’s so boring. I hate it, there’s no logic in this subject. Only things that break. I can’t wait for it to finish, because next thing we’re studying is Pneumology and I am sure I will love it.
In the weekend, me and my group wanted to go bowling, but the weather was awful and since me and a colleague live kind of far from the meeting spot, we postponed for the next week. Today I met with the people I went in Slovenia with, and we laughed and catch up with everything we did this summer. It was amazing to see them again. I remembered how much fun we had in Slovenia and how much I enjoyed their company.
Also this weekend I managed to do a little work for my website. I added some tutorials for BELLABUZZ – the ask me script I am using. You will find there all the information you will need to get it installed and customized. Also I managed to add two graphic tutorials (click on the images to see the tutorials):
For this week this is all, I will tell you about my next week next Sunday. Take care and have an amazing week.
