It was like a basement.

One day I was looking around, and I realized, if there was a fire in that place, pretty much nobody would make it out of there, really, only one way out and you had to go up a narrow staircase, the walls were covered in wood. I didn't stop going there, but needless to say I was always worried.
A table near the stairs!

Life is so dreadfully random. If we started looking at all the dangers, we would be paralyzed.

In Austin one time a car crashed into the living room of a house. The funny thing is that the house was a place were people with agoraphobia sometimes met for group sessions.

I just drove 2500 miles. Nothing happened, but there were some scary places where things might have happened. People drive like banshees between Austin and Houston. It's about 80 all the way and people are pushing to get ahead all the time. It's crazy really because is getting someplace 15 minutes faster really worth all the risk and stress?

It's all very random. But it can be very, very hard to accept. But it all comes down to the undeniable fact that we tend to ignore because it's so hard to accept: luck plays a huge part in one's life.

Now, what kind of recipes can I make with oatmeal? It's not very common here. I bought for breakfast, I eat it with yogurt and fruit. But now I am getting creative and I want to cook something with it, but what?

I don't have a "waffle iron" although I can improvise! It seems yummy. I was thinking something in the lines of that: banana + oatmeal or chocolate + oatmeal. Or all the 3!

Are you hungry already? I am...

Wanna watch a movie?

Oh and an apple sounds like a good idea. I have apples.

Well, I should be studying, but Iīm awfully tempted. Besides, itīs not as if Iīll get much done anyway after such a historical day. So yeah, Lincoln sounds good to me.

Noooo. I can't do that to you. You have to study! Now I feel bad. are you going to have exam soon?

It's very tempting though, having sort of company to watch a movie while eating an apple.

That's a cute idea, you two watching a movie together, but not really together.

Have you learned anything with me? we can watch it online on that portuguese website. But we won't because you have to study.

I have a better idea, we'll watch it on wednesday after your exam. To celebrate This way you can download it and I'll probably do the same to get a better version.

And now you study! Deal? What subject is it?

Of course you can call me that.

It's a tempting offer as I'm yet to see the film, but I understand you're going to do it after your exam? What time would you do it on Wednesday?

My pleasure with regards to the PM. If I return to Holland and need some tips, I'll be sure to call on you then.

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt3)

Well, I went to that portuguese website, but I couldnīt open the file, so a download was the only option I had left.

What are you, my virtual conscience ? But no, you are right, I should go and study. Or just go to bed, one of the two. Although I am not all that sure I will have cause to celebrate on Wednesday, the subject has been giving me some trouble. The subject is administrative law (permits, spatial developmental plans etc.)

EDIT: Letīs say 7PM your time (which would mean 8PM for me) Can you two make that?

Next wednesday? I certainly can. And if you won't have reasons to celebrate, you will need something to get you distracted. Now go get some rest so that you're fresh to study tomorrow!
