Day 156

Today I chose another nice place to work at – Haulover Park Marina, parking 1usd/hour which is pretty nice, 20 minutes from south beach.

Returned to south beach (took some 40 minutes because of traffic jams), parked, worked some more and went to sleep. I spend too much time parking the car, walking to and from the parking lots. I need an apartment with parking next to it. When you have an apartment you are eligible for free residential parking spot.

Day 155

Woke up really late 1pm. Had breakfast with my friends husband and left off to south beach to pick up my laptop. I went to a park near the ocean to work a few hours..

Returned back to hostel, worked some more, watched a few videos and it was late night already.

Day 154

Went to a service shop in North Miami to change oil for the car. I went that far because that shop has a terrible website that I could possibly improve. The guy was very helpful diagbosing other hundreds of problems the car has. Overall I paid 25usd for the labor which is real cheap. I paid 90usd for the oil and filter yesterday.
Spent most of the day looking for a place to work. And I forgot my bank card in an ATM so I had to order a new one that would arrive in a week. Gotta be careful now with the little cash I’m left with.
Ended back in south beach as I was really hungry. Picked up salad and smoothie at Sandwicherie, parked car and worked.
One of my female friends texted me to untag her from all my pics. Are you kidding me, can’t you find a normal guy that is not jealous and won’t forbid you anything? I ain’t spending my time on this drama.
Another femake friend invited me to drink beer with her husband and friends, so I finished work and left off. Pizza and beer games! I ended up staying at their place. Others were more drunk than me and still drove home. Americans just are so used to drink and drive wow.

My friend ended up breaking her iphone

My friend broke her iphones screen. I still don’t know if she did it on purpose to get the new iphone 6, but her husband thinks she did it intentionally :)

Day 153

Worked at office. Dont remember anything interesting. Except my breakfast was a disaster.

Day 152

Another car meet day. Went to “euro meet” that was held by a upper level car shop in west Miami.
It wasn’t so packed as yesterday’s meet and most people didn’t know each other.

BMW guys decided to go somewhere to eat, I decided to stay and talk to the owner about possible business opportunities.
Later I saw the BMWs parked outside a shopping mall.

Went back to south beach for weekend Sandwicherie treatment.

Went to sleep early.

Day 151

Car meet day. I was late. As always. And didnt bring a camera. Spent quite a bit of money on this event as I partly sponsored it. Weather was just perfect! And location was perfect – Markham park in north west. It’s a huge park with greenery and lakes where people pay for entrance (I think it was 3$ or something) and just enjoy the weather away from city.4

Meet was nice, I didn’t win any raffles, everybody was fine and left hone happy. Being at least a little part of organizers always creates an emptiness feeling after events like – what now?
Took me half an hour to get back to the city about 40miles, and half an hour to get over bridge and park in south beach. Beach is full as it’s Saturday and there’s a sea food festival on the beach – Ocean drive and Collins is completely jammed from crazy traffic.

Walked around for nothing and decided to go to bed when one of the carmeet hosts called to go to the SLS club that is just 1 block away from me. Done deal. Club full of sluts on heels. My drink was 25 bucks. Shouldn’t have drunk it as the guys decided to drive to Fort Lauderdale where a block party took place. They could give me a ride but then I’d have to take a taxi back. Oh well I went to sleep, another car meet tomorrow.

Day 150

Weather is shitty but had some fun with my car in the rain. Work was slow.
In the evening fixed my car’s window, finally it’s working as it should!
5 months and I finally see a Veyron on the beach

Day 149

Unbelievable I worked almost 11 hours. That was all my day. In the morning took a walk to my car just for a walk. For lunch walked the Lincoln Road Mall for pizza, in the evening took a break to speak with one weird dude from Estonia. He tried to convince me of the riches and sell a money making course. He knows a lot about them but the sales language will never hook me. Im not for the women and cars and millions he was trying to convince me about. I’m here to explore the world and myself.
Skipping club attendance today, a very busy friday and weekend ahead.
Its been raining the whole day btw.

Day 148

Woke up with big black rings under eyes. Employees thought I got in a fight but it is just from using bright laptop at night in dark room.

image

Got 7/11 coffee and finally suspension parts for my car arrived so I went to install. It worked. Lets see if it fixes the problem completely or temporarily and I have to waste another few hundred in other parts. For the 6 days I parked car in public garage I paid 121 usd. Ridiculous.
Some people seem to be poorer than me

Worked for 20 minutes at Sushi express, but couldn’t continue as it was quite cold inside.  Moved my car to parking lot and it started to rain. I fell asleep for couple hours. Wish the rain would end but it wouldn’t.  Walked back to hostel – new parts had arrived for my car. The window regulator so I can finally fix the leaking window. But not today, have to work. Finally. Did 5 hours, its just horrible how programming can be boring to free minded person like me.
I still owe 5-6 hours for previous two days. Since I didn’t go to office this is just worse.

Day 147

The big depression – rain. I can feel it even in sleep. Everytime it rains it hurts my head and I can’t work. Still many probably would enjoy this weather but I’m not, it’s eating up my time.

Went to vape shop a few times.
Went to visit bulgarian girl. She decided to leave USA next year. Giving up. She’s illegal and her boyfriend is not a resident.
Worked for a few hours but I am lazy again, most of the time I spend reading about BMW repairs and upgrades.
The girls that lost her bag attacked the front desk guy. Talked for hours in english then in spanish, I just left to my room, I couldnt listen to that. I understand that it’s a terrible bad luck for vacation but it’s not the fault of every person they meet at the front desk who has no control over what happened. They also talk to every police car that stops by. Nobody can help. What they did wron is they didn’tclaim their bag was stolen by other girls, that would bring their bag way faster.
