I am an art historian, who is also a tourist guide and an amateur photographer. I sometimes like and need to write. Sometimes I like to draw. I love books.

Currently reading: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

After I finished the Michelangelo book, I’ve moved on to two books by Virginia Woolf: “Mr. Dalloway” and “A Writer’s Diary”. The first one was okay, a little slow in a Woolf kind a way. The second one was really good, I love reading her personal thoughts and experiences. I’ve came to a conclusion: I like her style of writing, but I love her more as a person than as a writer. I find her to be a fascinating person.

After Woolf I moved on to “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” by Friedrich Nietzsche and I’m still reading it. I like it because there are a lot of great thoughts that are blowing my mind. But, at moments it feels like I’m reading the bible, so that is why I started to parallelly read another book: “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. It’s perfect to break the seriousness of Nietzche and have a little fun.

Lately

Lately I’ve been busy with a job a found. I finally found a job as a receptionist in a hotel. I’ve been in training for the past week and I’m starting to really doubt myself.

First of all, there’s more to it than I thought. It’s more like a one-man-show. Not only that I have to do the receptionist tasks with making reservations, doing check-in and check-out and helping out the guests with their rooms, but I have to also take care of the bar, make coffee, pour drinks, serve, etc. On top of everything, I have to buy food for the breakfast table and prepare most of the breakfast that will be served in the morning. In the meantime, I have to make sure the rooms are prepared and warm. So in a way, I’m a full time receptionist, full time bartender, part time housekeeper and part time cook.

And I would have to work 20 days in a month with 9,5 hour shifts ending before midnight! Which means, I would have to leave work in incredible cold weather and walk for 20 minutes in darkness to get home.

I need a job so bad, because I really want to do my own exhibition and I need a lot money to do that. But, I don’t know if it’s worth it… but I don’t have time to waste anymore.
