Blagoevgrad was dark and peaceful. Only street lights with their yellow light gave an opportunity to see objects a few meters ahead. The city was asleep, and so were we. Suddenly, the phone rang. It was my friend’s boyfriend. He wanted to make sure were awake and ready to go. I’m still thankful to him for that call. If it wasn’t for him, we would have stayed in Blagoevgrad for the rest of the day. It took us 15 minutes to get ready and run out of the dormitory; 10 more minutes we spent to reach the bus station. Tired of running towards the bus, we got inside and exhaled with relief. It was definitely a great beginning of our trip. The best was yet to come.

When I left the shop I couldn’t believe that this story had a happy ending despite the loss of money which is nothing compared to other accidents which have even worse subsequences. You can always find a way to earn expand your income. But what about an internal state? A theft, probably, felt a temporary pleasure from stealing money. I, on the contrary, had a mixture of emotions: sadness, anger, desperation. Usually I try to think rationally, calmly, in a coolheaded way. In this situation it took me some time to make up my mind.

    When I read this article I identified completely with it; not so much in the present tense, but I know that I am still working really hard to be less afraid to confront certain things head on. I’m pretty easy going but there are certain areas i.e. blatant disrespect towards others and disregard for the well-being for those around you, which irritates me enough to speak up. Interestingly enough, I am more apt to speak up for someone else (sooner) than for myself; strange I know. “But even more than fear, anger is hard on our reputation and our relationships, because anger usually looks and feels like unwarranted aggression to our counterparts…The needs to maintain self-respect may be more central to the personality than it is widely believed: We are built to be status protecting organism” (Weeks, 2008).…

I am not rude, when people ask me my opinion or a question I give them a real answer, and people tend to appreciate that. I notice that for thinkers it is said that we do not do well with showing emotion or are uncomfortable with others emotions (Sharf, 2013). I do not like showing other people my emotions because it makes me feel weak.…

    We left the house around 10 am to get to the train that would take us closer to where we needed to be which was Grant Park where Lollapalooza is hosted at. After the train ride that felt like it took forever was over we were right in the middle of downtown Chicago. We had to walk for about twenty minutes but it was a really fun walk, it was such a nice day out and it was downtown Chicago which is pretty amazing.
