Deep thoughts - Friend, Male, from Amsterdam

Friend

Moving in about a week. After months of stress finally progress. Even the rental market in the Amsterdam region is a clusterfuck... Jun 30, 2022 at 6:58 AM

        I know this has been a high-stress point for you for quite some time. All my hopes that the move goes well and you can mark this off the board for good.

        I am going to leave Amsterdam. Gentrification is not something I want to enjoy. Amsterdam is heading in the direction of London. Only my old friends keep me around...

        Extreme fatigue magnifies every challenge from feeling moderate to feeling overwhelming. A good rest will restore the setpoint.

        A little jail time might help some of them develop the necessary patience. Natan Sharansky said it helped him learn to brush his teeth properly (though it did give him a heart condition). And Chiba Sensei once yelled at a student: "Learn to block or I'll kill you [by accident]! I am not afraid of prison! Prison is a *great* place to practice aikido!"

        All my years being a good Christian laid the foundation for much of my discipline. After that my love for martial arts. I am not fond of religion, grateful for all the years of preparation though.

      Bought the Seiko SRPD55K1. Seiko actually improved the bracelet. I still prefer natos or tropical straps. The drilled holes are a nice plus.

        I've heard from realtors that N Texas is the #1 California expatriate area in the country.

        So prices are through the roof here. I hear stories of people getting $50-100k over ask, no contingency. Sometimes waiver of inspection.

      The worst aspect of gentrification is that it is a cannibalistic monster. I am about to leave Amsterdam unless I catch a break.

        My wife (an MD) has seen a marked difference in clinic with omicron between mRNA vaxxed, J&J vaxxed and unvaxxed. Unvaxxed have had way worse symptoms, J&J has been almost as bad as unvaxxed and mRNA vaxxed are almost all very mild. That is her firsthand observation.

        @DigMe thanks, it's good to hear on the ground reports. I'm boosted on Pfizer, but clinically vulnerable. I've kept informed via research papers and following a few epidemiologists with a good track record. However I'm now faced with either shielding alone for an endless duration, or mitigate where poss., enforce FFP3/N95 mask usage, hope there are no escape variants, and roll the dice.

        I didn't trust it to hold during the trough before Delta. My wife, a Mistress of Public Health, thought I was nuts when I insisted on masks. I'm sticking with that till the Israelis give the O.K. When you're attacked for 70+ years, you get good at war and medicine.

        When I ran my project studio I had 6x of ATH M50X, HD280, and 7506 for musician cue mix. M50X were the most popular, HD280 next and 7506 only occasionally picked.

    Sometimes I need coffee and sleep.
