I dont know if im unconsciously choosing the cards for the updates, but ive been posting maps in every single update...well, not that i mind, it feels nicer for me to have a little bit of everything, but now that i realized it, i felt weird about it.
Australian one...I would love to visit Australia one day (well i would love to visit every single place in the world actually)...but i dont think i would love to live in Australia.
I dont know if you knew, but many Macedonians live in Australia...the thing with them is, i dont know if they get culturally over-enlightened, but they really feel very self-centered with themselves. A friend of mine went to Australia several years ago to visit her relatives who are Macedonians but have lived there for their whole life. And this is what happened to her. She wanted to watch something, and one of the relatives did this.."So, this is a V-I-D-E-O R-E-C-O-R-D-E-R...you use it to watch films....and this is a T-A-P-E! You take the tape, and, see this opening in the recorder??? Weeeelll, you put the tape in it and you GEEEEENTLY push it inside. Then you take this, which is called a R-E-M-O-T-E C-O-N-T-R-O-L...It is used to change channels, like this (and he shows her how to do it.)
And my friend was just speechlessly watching him...she couldnt believe it that he treated her like a retard and she wondered if she should tell him how many videos in her life she had actually watched...i guess thats coz of the lack of information people have about Macedonia...we are far from the greatest or most developed country in the world, but we are not from the Stone age either...funny though, many Macedonian immigrants do treat us like that forgetting they come from here as well....its an absurd situation...not to mention the Australian-Macedonian language they had invented...its a mixture of English and Macedonian, and its just....awful and ridiculous. I wonder how shocked they would be if they actually knew we have iPods as well....
Well that would be all for today....see you soon...hopefully
