Tuesday. For the last few days it was raining A LOT. Yesterday it stopped, but the rain had its consequences. In the evening electricity went out, no internet, no light and NO WATER (even in the toilets). It is good to mention that right now the school has many students, probably we are around 30-40 people (not counting masters, translators and kitchen ladies).
Not being able to properly take shower after the training, I would consider the most inconvenient. But apart from that somehow my mind calmed down. Having this opportunity to NOT HAVE things, made me realize how much we have, how much we are dependent on our daily habits.
Benefits Of Not Having Electricity
Not having a strong light in the evening is amazing:
- Gives you better mood to sleep.
- It relaxes your body and keep your thoughts in a right place.
Not having internet is even better:
- There are no excuses to go and check E-mails, instagram, facebook etc.
- You need to find a new occupation. Maybe talking with your friends, maybe just going to sleep.
No Electricity No Water – Do We Train?
In the morning there was still no electricity and water in the sank or showers. “It is fine” – I said to myself, the world doesn’t collapse 🙂 I still could brush my teeth using the water from the bottles. I could wash my face, eat breakfast and wash dishes afterwards. Differently – yes. But it is just the matter of switching to a different way of doing things. Could I get used to it – why not? Imagine how much happiness would give me shower if I wouldn’t have it everyday. It doesn’t mean as well that I won’t wash my body. I can do it in a different way.
Would we train? – the ridiculous questions pop up in my thoughts. – Why not? – I answered myself. – Why would that small thing change the school’s schedule?
Let’s go than for the training!
