Something about me...
Oh, what can I tell you about me? I'm sure, I'm not the best person to ask... I don't like to speech in english, I prefer writing. Maybe I will learn how to speak freely on these classes and communication will be easier for me a bit. Anyway I like writing - much more than talkig. I can think about word, which I really want to say, not only that one, which came as first into my mind.
This way I prefer books than conversation. Usually I read fantasy, sometimes science-fiction or other genres. Maybe because the imagination seems to be better place than reality - less complicated and more logical. In my opinion, of course.
But I live in real world. I don't want to escape from it into my dreams, so I try to see it more beautiful. I'm an optimist. I can stand for a while on a street and watch sun rays shining in the morning gloom, I can spend many minutes to observe common snail, moving next to my shoe in fresh grass. I love such momments of common live - they always make me happy.
Sometimes I have a camera during these momments - and this is my another passion: photography. I'm not a professional - simply I like to make photos. I have many other passions - like biking, computers, movies, or electronics. I have a collection of hippopotamuses too - it's my hobby.
It is difficult to say, what I really don't like. Sometimes I think I like evrything, that surrouns me. We live in pleasant times, there are no close wars, economics are growing, there is a golden era of science. We are getting better, faster, more convinient and of course not happier. But I'm optimistic - day after day. The world is crazy, but fascinating too, at all.

Napisać daily routine - ogólnie
It is not good idea to write, how my common day looks like. It would be too boring to listen to that. It would be better to say about somebody else. Look at that for example:
I weak up early in the morning - usually not later than rising sun. This time there is too much walking and talking people to sleep well. During winter I prefer to stay inside, but when it's warmer I like to smell fresh air. I only have to pack my baggage and move forwad.
At this time there are much hurrying people walking rapidly do work. It is not the best time for begging, but if any good place is free, I stay for hour or two. Sometimes I'm able to stay longer, but usually somebody want me to go away. If I earn some money this way or I saved some from the day before, I buy something to eat. A bread, a roll or even a banana. I'm not particular, you know, it isn't possible in this proffesion.
If there is really hard, I walk from one trash bucket to another, looking for food. With some luck I find other interesing items too. You have no idea, what things people can just throw away. One time I have found a working toaster!
In the afternoon I try to eat a dinner. I usually use the center for homeless. I don't like that place, but I hardly never have a chance to eat elsewhere. If there is a pleasant weather, I sometimes go to the local park to watch the nature and enjoy the green lawn, silence and freedom. The park branches are good to take a nap too. Afternoon is probably the best time to beg. People are happy after work and they are thinking about their homes. It's much easier to get some money, when they are in that mood. It's good to take a bus or train station, or one of the crowdly streets.
In the evening I come back to my train station. I buy a plastic cup of tea from the machine, usually with something warm to eat - like hot dog for example. In the evening I find a good place in the station, if it is possible, and continue to learn playing harmonics. If I have good day I can earn more money this way than during whole day. When there are less people and it is getting late, I go to sleep. There are many convenient spots in the station if you really want to sleep after long and difficult day.

My best friend
Maybe it is difficult to believe, but my sister is my best friend too. In early childhood we were like little enemies a bit - you know, we werer quarreling about toys and games. Later she was my personal defender or even bodyguard in school. She is almost two years older than me, so she could protect me from children from higher classes - maybe it is funny, I know.
In secondary school we became true friends. We learned english, math and even #matura together. During my studies we could talk about evrything - without borders or secrets. Always we help each other as well as we can. It is not a problem, that I’m here, in Katowice, and she lives and studies in Breslau - we communicate over internet.
We have common interests and passions and we are travelling together during vacations: we ride on bikes to Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bornholm, Poland of course and time will show us, where else.
I can count on her and she can count on me. And it is most important, I think.

E-mail message about me.
Hello. My name is Michael and I live in Poland. I’m an optimist and I spend my free time on enjoing life around me. And reading books, biking, playing computer games, watching movies too. I have also a collection of hippopotamuses. I’m shy person, so I prefer writing than talking. Write if you have a lot in common.
E-mail respond to penpal
Thank you very much for your respond. I’m so glad that you love hippos and you have your own collection too. It doesn’t matter how many hippos you have - it is important that you are doing something what makes you happy.
It’s great that you love travelling. I hope one day you will fulfill your dreams and make the expedition over Mongolia and China. I also enjoy visiting new places, but not on motorbike - I travel on bike with tents and friends. It is my way for spending holidays.
I visited your homepage and I’m impressed by your photos from trip to Brasil. I like making photos too and I have to say, that you are really talented! Do think about art studies? I suppose it would be amazing experience for you - especially that you like painting.
In previous message I forgot about my favourite music. I like calm genres like ambient and new age, but usually I listen rock or metal too. It depends on what I’m doing - sometimes I simply need louder and faster backgound to avoid from sleep.
In the attachment I’m sending you a true story about very old turtle, which rescued young hippo during flood in a zoo. That’s incredible, I know.
Write more about you, I will wait impatiently for your response.
Your hippo loving friend from Poland, Michel

Christmas is a magical time. I spend it with my family. What can I say interesting about that? Maybe the fact we have no a christmas tree. We have a christmas cactus instead. It is our little tradition. My family decided that common christmas trees are expensive, non ecological, causes problems and are stiupid way to bring money to christmass tree sellers, transferring this holy time into commercial trance.
But New Year time I spend with pack of my friends. We travel together to house of one of them located on a hill near Skoczów and Bielsko-Biała. Just imagine the mountainns covered with snow in far distance. The sun reaching the tops is breaking through the clouds. Look closer. Lower hills are emerging from chilly fogs. Silent sounds of life are coming from the bottom of this view. Civilization is far away. It’s great feeling.
We spend much time on watching brilliant landscapes and simply making photos. We like wanderig, but maybe more we like playing various games, including cardgames or boardgames like Monopoly, and of course role playing games.
Sometime we meet new people there. But always it is a opportunity to meet old people again - we learn new things about old friends. It makes that we are closer. Maybe it is why we can talk about almost everything during these long dark nights and long white walks...

How relaxed you are?
I have to say that I’m quite relaxed now. In this situation I have nothing to worry about. I know my way and my target - I’m like shot arrow, crossing the air. I know that place, I know what is necessary and what isn’t. I stand on solid, steady ground and that makes me happy and relaxed. But it works only here. In this building.
Usually i’m not so sure what to do. But I’m slow. I don’t hurry - in most cases things are not important enough to make them in rush. I can be patient. I don’t worry often - I simply try to accept, what comes. I don’t like wasting the time for fight with my our life - I prefer just living.
Maybe I worry about communication or meetings with others - I’m just not good at that. It’s why. Maybe I worry about our civilization. About our future. I think we should worry about important matters, if we have to worry about something.

The last book I have read
Few days ago I read a small book - about fourty pages long. It was About library written by Umberto Eco. I have heard about this book before, but I get it as a christmas present. It is short critical opinion about modern libraries - the author explains the vision of a world as a never ending library with infinite books and corridors. He shows how the library shouldn’t look like, and then tells us about his two favourite ones. He names the features of ideal library in his opionion.
There are no main characters in that book - it is not a novel with bad or happy end. It is a collection of few philosophical thoughts. Nevetheless it is Umberto Eco. On this studies it is not bad idea to read that book.

My first trip abroad
If we won’t count small trips to Cieszyn in Czech Republic, Switzeland was my first trip abroad. I was in third class in secondary school, when my physics teacher announced a trip to CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. There were not many of us, who decided to go - only four people from my class. We were travelling in a bus an visited not only CERN, but many other attractions too. We were in International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, we were in Chamonix and we almost saw the Mont Blanc. Evrything would be perfect if ma camera wouldn’t break first day. I have few photos only - from other people from class. Anyway it is an unforgetable experience.

2,1/31 - story ending
My girlfriend kissed her penpal on my eyes without any problems. I wanted to bite him just in that momment, but I realised that this way I could hurt the person, who I love so much. During the dinner she was talking only with him, they were watching in each others eyes like lovers. True lovers. He is good-looking, interesting, intelligent and sporty. I’m not. After that dinner I escaped to garage to think about that. I couldn’t disturb her happines - if she wanted to live and be happy with him, I let her to do that freely. I broke every contact, trying to became invisible. I went to Australia to farm of my uncle. I worked hard to forget about my love, but after two years my feeling haven’t expired and my heart has been still biting for her. I decided to go back to her to check her present live and happines. In my city I met my old friend, wearing a black suit. He was extremly happy, when he saw me - he was going to a funeral. My own funeral! My whole family and my girfriend, who didn’t stop to love me, were looking for me for two years and then lost hope and made a funeral, thinking I’m dead. The penpal was always only a friend who left our house the same day he come. I couldn’t belive that trying not to hurt my girlfriend I hurt her much more.
I got depressed, because I don’t know how could I finish that sentence.
I got bored, because the book I read makes me sleepy.
I got confused, because my own family seem to be a rasists.
I got upset, because snow and ice are falling from roofs
I got involved in crime, because my face looks like a face of famous robber.
