omg my entire childhood/adolescence in that video There is not a single thing in there I don't remember well. I am impressed there were even pogs in it I freaking loved pogs. And they only cost like 10 cents so they were a cheap thing to collect

Congrat Jess! Kudo to Vika! She is one hell of a fighter. Not just the opponent but the whole Arena.

Li Again lost the final after winning the first set in AO.

Wait until you really are old!!

Anyway, I don't like to dwell in the past or think the olden days were better. I sometimes get irritated with people who want to glorify the 50s or 60s etc. There were big problems in those eras and things that we never want to return to.

I think that the technology advances are so amazing and I love them. But the social aspects too. I never thought Germany would be reunited and certainly no in my lifetime, and now there are young adults who have no memory of it being divided or the stories of people risking their lives to cross. Or, who would have dreamed in the early 60s that in 50 years there would be a man of african heritage president of the united states? There are many urgent problems to solve now, but I just think it's all better despite the looming and truly hard problems that face us.

Also do you study history? I gathered that you might when you talked about your thesis. This is such an interesting time for history with new documents from the eastern bloc now available for study.

I wen to the food fair in this town an hour from here, called Montalegre. I have photos to share later, but first I need you to understand what type of food it was. It was traditional food from this northern region of Portugal, there is word for it but I can't find the right translation, it's "fumeiro". Which is this:

Heck, if I feel this old while Iīm 22, I donīt want to know how Iīll feel in 20-30 years But seriously now, I think part of the reason people in their early 20īs feel old from time to time is because that is the period that they see a new generation growing up that is different than themselves. Even though I can recognize some things in this generation that us 90īs kids had, this generation clearly has a ethos of itsī own.

As far as technological and social changes go, Iīm fairly certain the world will be very interesting in 50 years. Just how it will look, I canīt imagine.

I study European Studies, which can best be described as a mix of political sciences and history, with a bit of law and economics thrown in for good measure. Itīs indeed an interesting time, not just because documents from the east become available, but documents from the west pertaining the Cold War as well. The tricks the two sides tried to pull on eachother are even dirtier than usually imagined.

Isnīt this smoked sausage? Fumeiro is probably a cognate of fumado/fumato, which refer to smoking.

Yeah but fumeiro is a group of food, all smoked. Not just sausages. It's complicated, and probably untranslatable.

Come on we are 22, we are not old. This whole messed up crisis and global situation is making us feel old, but we need to fight that.

Did you have a good time there on the fair?

I donīt know, to me there is more to it than the global situation. I am only now starting to come out of a bit of a rut I was in a year ago and Iīm restless, you know? That feeling you have that you have to change something, but you donīt have the faintest clue what. And still, life goes on and before you know it the carefree years are behind you. I donīt know, I have some soulsearching to do.

That's because we have been studying for what? 16 or 17 years? That is a lot of time doing the same thing. I know subjects change, schools change, systems change. But truth is, all you do is study. And probably when you get to 22, your mind is over that, you start being too mature for that. Only caring about studying and exams and similar stuff is not enough anymore. But it's bound to change for both of us rather sooner than later. That is the good (?) news.

Also that thing, you know, something you haven't found that is supposed to make you feel fulfilled and complete? Something we think that can be a job, a life partner, a kid, moving to another city/country, starting this or that project? That does not exist. Nobody ever feels 100% fulfilled, and if they do, hell they are the luckiest people on earth. When you find that thing, and you may know what it is so you know when you find it, you will find a way to feel incomplete again, to start craving for something else. It's just life.

I mean look at me. For 3 weeks all I wanted was time to relax and do nothing. 2 days into my holidays and I am freaking out because have nothing to do!

Some rare cases apart, the human race is naturally dissatisfied.

I don't think so.

When I was about 20 there was the threat of nuclear war (very real during the Cuban crisis) The Vietnam war was building and then in my early 20's it was raging with young men my age being drafted and killed. We were marching in protests or yelling at people who were marching in protests. There were riots in the cities with neighborhoods being burned. Leaders off the country were assassinated. It was a pretty grim time really.

And there are people in their young twenties facing much more terrible things in their countries.
