One of the blogs that I like to read over morning coffee belongs to 20-year old Romanian WGM Irina Bulmaga. Often reading like a personal diary. Irina shares her joys and pet peeves; her plans and ambitions; her setbacks. Just yesterday Irina wrote of the VAMPIRES in her life…as you know, Romanians know a LOT about vampires! You can also follow Irina on TWITTER and FACEBOOK.
There are very few calm moments in this life.
When you think that everything’s good and you are finally satisfied by how things go something happens in order to remind you that your life depends too much on things you can’t control.
I don’t know how about you, but I like making plans, knowing what I have to do, what I am expected to do and work after that to make it happen. I am a very responsible person and when I am engaged in making something I do my best to complete the task. I don’t understand why some people enjoy ruining my plans and my hard work. Why some don’t want to make compromises?
I am a student at a normal University. I chose to study on distance, in order to have enough time for the thing I love the most- chess. The attendance at courses is not compulsory, so I just have to pass partial and final exams and to make projects. But somehow, the last year of the degree is special- they think that a student is so desperate to finally finish his studies that it would be normal to change the “not compulsory attendance” to courses.
The professor said- “But it’s not compulsory, you’ll just repeat the year if you don’t come. Maybe you’ll be able to find time for this next year.” Why don’t they respect their own rules? I would never engage in something I knew I couldn’t complete.
What to do now? There’s nothing to be done but accept their new rules and make sacrifices that I would never make if I knew everything from the beginning.
And how am I supposed to believe there are no vampires with so many people enjoying their power over others and getting satisfaction from sucking your nerves, blood and from draining you of all your energy, dreams and faith?
