Actually the title should in reverse order because the mosquitoes are trying to EAT ME AT THIS VERY MOMENT but my reflexes are too much for their puny kind. Suffer like my skin has suffered because of you, you tiny insectoid vampires.
But anyways, I feel like writing something and this is always handy.
First of all, my job at the graveyard has become somewhat... annoying. I do read/write/draw a lot more than usually in my free times, and my English skills have somewhat improved, which is awesome, but the sheer stupidity of some of the people coming inside makes me just wanna scream at them to get out. Like, there is a giant sign, in black and red, saying that the entry was ten kunas (and it doesn't even require language skills to figure that out, only a bit information on the country they're visiting) and some people just.. ugh. I greet them politely, and they don't even respond back (mostly they're non-english speakers..) and just walk past me even though I have clearly made myself present and am sitting five centimeters from the "ticket price" sign. They then say, after a minute or so of awkward silence and me staring holes into their head, in their language "I'll only have a look" and stay there, staring inside from the fricking doorway. Like what the hell am I supposed to say?? I can't exactly shoo them off from there and have them complain later on...
Also I just hate, HATE it when people complain to me for not speaking their language. Like bitch, if you can't learn basic English, which is the official language of tourism and pretty much everything these days, as far as I know, then why the hell should I bother even uttering a word of a language spoken only inside the borders of the country you're coming from? And how the fuck am I supposed to show you where a location on google maps is, when all of your maps are in YOUR FREAKING LANGUAGE AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU'RE SEARCHING FOR. *takes a few deep breaths* There are a few little gems, though, like British tourists generally interested in the history, Americans that think that everything here is 1000 years old (and who surprisingly help me a lot with my pronunciation haha) Germans giving unnaturally large tips, and those adorable ones of every nationality that absolutely fail at Croatian but at least bother to show interest in the place they're visiting.
Peeps. Please, I beg of all of you in the behalf on every person in the services sector, be a good tourist. Respect the locals and their laws and show a bit of interest because you not only represent yourself and your mother, but your whole country when you go somewhere, and sadly, by leaving a bad first impression you kind of destroy the reputation of your country as a whole and create nasty stereotypes.
To prevent this, I recommend leaving a lot of tips to everyone. Tips are always awesome
Another good kind of news? I started growing out my hair, starting from today. I literally need to go through the phase of having long hair before I get into my thirties and start going bald
I'm currently stuck with a hairstyle like this www.victorhugohair.com/2063-sh…
so it'll take a while, but since my hair grows rather fast I think I'll be where I want in a year and half or so
I can't wait for the in between phases and covering my hair under a beanie yay .___.
So that's all for now! I hope your summers are doing well, and I really, really hope you're free from obnoxious people AND mosquitoes
