[15th January 2006]

I am being quite slack.

I was meant to look for a job, and I wasted last week doing fuck all, well, to be completely honest I did look for a job but not quite as strongly as I should.
I have tried to re-tie all the lost links that I had in Florence, as a matter of fact, in Italy, it's a lot easier to land on an offer because you were introduced by someone rather than by sending CVs.
It's quite sad, but it's the game that you have to play in Pizzaland.

On the other side doing PR is good because you meet new people and you see new faces. Roberto (for example), my brother in law, came for two days and introduced me to a very nice chap who might have the right channels that might be interested in my profile.
Even if nothing comes out at least I have spent a nice night and I have met someone different.

The knee is SLOWLY getting there, even though Roberto (who is a sport doctor) told me that the surgery wasn't all that "clean" and that great part of the suffering came from that. In any case the leg is fine now and I have to get all the muscles to work once more, so that the leg is more stable and the pain will finally go away.
I have also got to know that my sick-leave is not until the 10th of February as I first thought, but is instead until the 31st of January.
Needless to say that this was quite a big blow, as it fast forwarded the date of me leaving Florence, occurrence that I knew it was coming but that I have tried not to think about for as much as I could.

I have to see if I can get a further extension.

It's a funny feeling. I have now almost completely re-joined the Florentine way of life, the Florentine spirit, and now I have to leave.
Thinking of it it's not funny at all, it's actually quite shite, but I must concentrate on how much I like it here so that I will work harder to move from the North back to this area.
I tend to go back and "forget" how good is here, I think it's a sort of self-preservation instinct, in order to avoid a bullet in my head (RATM quote intended).

Fiorentina played a good (and lucky) match that I watched with my mates; the afternoon was quite nice as a result. Evening spent watching the last episode of "24", that I was meant to see with a friend of mine who stood me up instead!

Oh well it can't be all perfect, or can it?

I'm sorry your leav is going to end on the 31st of January. I hope you'll be able to extend it further. And BTW you should really put to the task of finding a REAL job in a REAL city :-)
See you soon!
