Okay, that really is shitty, don't know how you could manage that as well, I guess postal delivery is somewhat expensive in Russia, eh?
It's hard for most people to imagine how it's really like to live over there, I think.
If you had enough money, would you move to a different country? Or at least to moscow?
I mean, how much are you bound to your country, mentally?
Natalia, my workmate was born & raised in moscow and moved away from there when she was 11, IIRC.
She told me that she somehow misses Russia a lot, because over here everything is different (okay, maybe you are more set financial and it's a bit warmer here), but she doesn't feel too right here.
She's got that really cool robuste humour and that totally rough and edgy voice, maaaaan, that girl used to twist my head so bad... errrrmmm, anyway, what did I want to say..?
What I think is, that many people don't like to talk about things like this, because they don't know how to behave.
If they'd say "Dude, I'm so sorry for you, living in Russia", then they might think they do an insult on you, because they somehow 'reduce' your country to something they wouldn't like to live in.
If they'd say nothing about it, they might seem like they would be ignoring you.
And if they were like "It's not that bad, man!", they might seem like they don't know shit or just don't care.
I could imagine that many people try to avoid talking about material things. You know, like "look what I've bought yesterday" or "I've been searching for this focking egg-warmer for ages, and now I've really found it, it only cost me 70000 bucks".
I think we all should move into a nice house somewhere in the caribic and grow our own vegetables and food in a nice garden outside. Then we have a musicians corner where people build beats and stuff, then the collections corner where other ones are collecting and cleaning their stuff and a listening-corner where all the babes hang around, waiting for the guys to come down to go over into the cooking-section to make meal.
Please put your names onto the list if you're in mates...
