Day 105

Miami makes me so lazy. I guess it’s a proof that it has amounts of comfort. I enjoy just sitting on a chair outside in the sun. Boring work is playing my nerves. But I just cant dump it, I have no savings.
Worked at sushi twice and south vape again. Love my vape setup, it is special, noone had ever seen something like that before. And I got to a point where I feel the nicotine doses instantly and get high if I vape too much. This is a monster:

Love the russian week. All I have to do is sit down to a table and I am given a cup of liqour by a person I didnt even talk to yet. I dont enjoy I am getting drunk again but the hospitality and friendliness is amazing.
Its getting cold at nights here when the wind gets stronger, here come the long sleeves!
Another tourist girls got robbed on the beach. Let me print this once. YOU CANT GO TO THE BEACH WITH YOUR PHONE/PASSPORT/WALLET IN MIAMI.

Day 104

Monday. Woke up way too early. At 9am. Got my coffee but felt horrible.

Some homeless woman wiping away water, probably so that people dont drop their cigs in in water

I guess I had a hangover of some type from Malibu drinks last night. Went back to sleep a bit. Woke up at 1pm and went to work at sushi express. It didnt go quite well, so I just dropped it and went to hang out at the South Vape. Later returned to BnD and finished my work before midnight. I have a feeling I wont survive this job, it is terribly boring.
Wasnt in a mood for super early sleep so messed a little with my ecig setup.

Keeping conversation with one local girl, she’s a bit weird but it’s funny and sexy. Going to sleep early 2am.

Day 103

Woke up with a hangover. Got two amazing coffee cups ar 7-11

image

Theyre on special, 50 cents each.
Rebuilt the coil on my new setup as the ecig fired in my pocket in the nightclub and burnt the shit out of the cotton. Stretched fire switch spring so it is tougher and I am just loving this setup!
To kill the hangover I went to swim in the ocean. The waves were great!  And for the first time I saw jellyfish in the water so I took great caution while swimming. Then took a mozarella croissant at the La Sandwicherie and miso soup from Hiro sushi express.

This is definitely russian week in Miami, most of russians are students on J1 work visa and they’re spending their end of the summer in Miami.
Walked around with one of the russian girls to Lincoln Rd mall, to the ocean (full moon makes the beach almost light as day), later came back for a swim.
Spent rest of the night outside of BedsnDrinks hostel drinking with russians and watching storm approach.

Day 102

Dont remember much as rhe day ended in nightclub. But finally went to ocean to catch some sun!

image

Went a few times to vape shop. My first mechanical mod arrived – Kato Square box mod! It fits my UD AGA-T7 tank perfectly!

image

Built the coil at South Vape and I love this setup!
Went to meet one guy from BedsnDrinks, it was his last day before flying back to Costa Rica. Later a russian guy and girl decided to join me to the club. They had problems with credit card so I bought them the tickets online. Good thing I did because I actually hadn’t bought my ticket a week ago, I had still just added it to shopping cart.
We did a 0.75 bacardi for three of us and took a Lyft ride to Story club. The night and music was awesome.

image

But I guess I got too drunk as at 4.30am I told them we need to go back, I was exhausted.
Had some pizza on our way and went to sleep.

Day 101.

Hot outside.

image

Going to the office in Aventura. I guess my “freelancer lifestyle” is over and I have to start looking for apartment closer to office. Right now it is 1.5hours away. This also means I have a reason to look out for new jobs as this one is losing its main advantage.
Spent couple hours at office and went back to south beach. Had dinner and went to shop some clothes. Omg I can’t find anything I like. Bought another white long sleeved pullover that I cant use in this heat.
Met the bulgarian chick and went to drink a beer with her at a bar. She’s been with her bf for five years. But I guess it’s not going so smooth as she is feeling a bit lonely here in Miami.
Went to BedsnDrinks and put up my music loud and people like that, its my 10 year old mixes that I play. Wow I want to DJ again.

Day 100. BedsnDrinks

Yep day 100 in USA. And I am staying in BedsnDrinks as the owner made an exception for me for couple weeks.

image

Two cute russian girls from Moldova checked in as well. But I have no time to party as I need to get ready for Formula D in Texas next week.
Received some vape stuff from eBay, went to South Vape and sushi express to work. Of course I started working just at 6pm. This laziness is killing me.
Finished work at BedsnDrinks.  Time was going slow but in the end I worked 1 hour more so its good.
Pretty much nothing interesting on my 100th day here.

Day 99

Couple morning shots at Posh hostel pool area.

image

Went to local realty office. Went to see an apartment in the area but didnt like it. 1300usd for 1 room, utilities not included. Location was great but the apartment not so great. Still had nice talk to them about properties around south beach neighbourhoods.
Met the bulgarian girl.  She said she’d text me after her shift to go somewhere.  She didn’t.  That’s ok she has a boyfriend.
Went to Hiros Sushi to work but received an email from Formula Drift team – I am approved as media for Texas event next week! So I spent my day looking for camera rentals and ordered best lens out there. I dont get paid for this and I am dumping about 1k usd on this event just to shoot for my pleasure.
Met the owner of BedsnDrinks, I can move in tomorrow for 2 weeks. At least i will have a place to leave my stuff.
Spent the rest of the night working outside BedsnDrinks.
Streets are full of homeless roaches, two of them were stealing a bike.   Going to sleep at 4.30am. This is crazy but the schedule for the next weeks will be even worse. Stay crushing.

Day 98

Woke up early and thats good because at reception I couldnt pay for extended stay, all rooms sold out.
Walked my morning tour to 7-11 and BedsnDrinks and then back to pack my stuff. Worked on my projects at Tropics, then at Sushi. Visited vape shop and then checked in at Posh Hostel. It has the highest ranking on booking.com.
Fancy looking hostel apart from the fact that it has 3 big rooms with a lot of beds in each. Strict security rules, they took my passport, creditcard copy, 50usd security and had to sign a set of rules agreement. A great feature – from 7pm to 8pm the bar has happy hour and drinks are free.
So most people were at the bar, I got one drink but wouldnt stand the masses of ttavelers to get more.
Internet is shit. Literally. And this place has no privacy, all areas are compact and filled.

image

Showers are mixed so either you walk in naked or have your towel wet in shower. Lets see how is the pool tomorrow as today its raining.
Went to BedsnDrinks to work. Til 2.30am.
One of the girls that I met at BedsnDrinks couple months ago just wrote me, she is visiting my home country with her family, so I suggested them a few places.
Walking back to Posh is not so nice, down from 14th street the streets are full of different people. Btw half of Miami homeless guys are always talking to their imaginary friends.
Back in Posh its what I expected, half of people are awake as most night birds like me have to walk by their beds. Good part is that my room is isolated. Bad part is it still has a lot of people inside and at least 2 are snoring loud. And I can hear a couple having sex in the showers. After that they came to my room to have more sex, are you kidding me?!?
I was thinking to check out in the morning, cause I’d like to have some sleep too. A bit later out of nowhere the security came in the room and threw them out. Lol.

Day 97

Woke up, went to poolside to work.

image

Quick talk with my boss and turns out its labor day, nobody’s working, yay!
So I spent my day working on my own projects.
I’m addicted to vaping.

image

Went to my usual places – sushi bar and BedsnDrinks.  Met a lot of russian girls at the Tropics. Spent all day just working online.
Thats it, perfect labor day! :D

Day 97

Sunday funday. Did not wake up to go to the beach with my friends.  Had a big headache.  Just from 6 mexican beers. Biiiig headache.
Got my morning coffee and went to BedsnDrinks for morning chat. Coffee does wonders!
It was raining periodically.  This photo is so true..

image

Worked a bit and went for a lunch. Took couple miso soups from sushi express and went to South Vape shop to say hi.  Yes. Again, I stayed there for 6 hours.

image

Went out like drunk at 9pm. Got myself the monthly special at Subway.

image

Worked off both my laptop batteries at Tropics and later at BedsnDrinks till 4am. On Lincoln road near club SET was a big mess, 10 police cars, ambulance, blood on the ground. One guy arrested. One with minor damage, other beat up heavily. Sometimes it’s a jungle here in South Beach.

image

But mostly its fancy and exotic cars on streets more than non exotic.

Weekend over, back to work.
