I’ve had a good weekend. It wasn’t remarkable, but that’s what’s good about it. On Saturday I went around Chernivtsi to explore the city a bit farther. As I’ve said before, it’s a nice place. I went to the theatre square and spent a while just sitting around. In the city centre, things were looking average. Peaceful, even.
Then I saw trucks full of humanitarian help getting unloaded. More flyers with refugee help hotlines hanging around. Men in full camouflage with guns guarding the crossroads. More reminders that my country is still indeed being invaded, I guess.
I downloaded a map app that a few of my friends use. It allows you to see where your contacts are at the moment (I’m the little dot and the icons are everyone else). Seeing our locations so far away from each other made me feel sadder knowing that it will be a while until we can be together again. But when we do, it’s going to be the happiest moment of my life.
I have tachycardia so I need heart checkups from time to time to make sure it doesn’t develop into anything more serious. The constant stress isn’t doing me any good. I keep telling myself that after the war is over I’m going to get it checked right away, but it’s been weeks and weeks and I’m getting scared at this point.
