Yep, that's all folks!
No, I'm being a bit too much drastic, probably. I am just a bit angry that when I was finally starting gearing up with the intensity of sport activity... CRACK! I pulled (and really hope not teared) my hamstring. It was coming, I knew it was coming... and did too few to avoid it. I almost injured myself in the same place before Christmas, but I stop playing for almost a month, than I begun training a bit, going jogging almost everyday. But Sunday I felt it... and tonight had not the time and will to warm up properly. And so... in front of me probably a month or more(even if I still hope less, but it's not probable) of resting and watching my teammates play...
I hope they win... even without me... SIGH!

Getting organized for a new life can take some time. I, for example, need between a month to a year to do the easiest things. Today I downloaded the application to check my trains timetable. Not a moment too soon! I still haven't got a bank account, a internet connected phone contract and some more things that probably I should have got by now. They will come in good time.
To go to work I spend at least 35 minutes per leg in a train. At most 47. I remember when I left Milan just because I wouldn't stand commuting for almost 2 hours a day to get to work. Now I'm doing 1 hour and a half and I'd remain in Amsterdam forever. It is true that the trip is on a train through fair country side and canals.
Life make we change. When we stop to change... it's time to die.

And... if you don't think is simply amazing... here is a second version that I love too!
Somewhere, some place, there is the answer for you.
And then, in real life, we tend to forget it. We have got a problem that we cannot resolve and we are stuck. What we do? We check on the internet, again. Sometimes there is an answer, sometimes not.
Well... we forget that there is a real Community out there that can have the solution. Well, maybe not "we"... but "I" did forgot that there is a community out there. It's made by our family, our friends, the people that we know.
I had a problem with my registration here in Amsterdam, I needed a document that my landlord will not give me. And I needed it quite quick, or something else. But I asked a friend and neither him could help me. Then yesterday evening I went to take a beer with a new friend, just met him few weeks ago. And talking about this and that, it occurred that I mentioned this problem. And he solved it in 5 minutes, telling me a thing that I didn't know and that is so easy that it seems unbelievable that I didn't think about it myself!
Well... this is our Community outside, in the real world. We forgot that as big, unusual, complicated a problem could be, there is an answer out there some place and we need help to find it. It is too difficult to solve every problem by ourselves, and sometimes we miss simple solutions just because we don't think that sharing it's a great thing.
So... use the Community in real life too!
