Hi everybody I hope y’all doing well.
In this post I wanna write about my impressions about Czech people.
If you’re following my blog you may have found some topics about cultural differences in each posts. But for this time, the entire post is gonna be about the differences between Kartvelis and Czechs. Continue reading
Yesterday, I nearly got mad and it was just a beginning of the day. So, I was at the bank it was fun because the manager of the bank could not talk in English well and she suggested to communicate via Google translator. Every time she wanted to say smth, she was writing in Czech and I was reading in English 😀 and it was real fun :D. But all the procedures took very long time, and I was getting crazy little by little, because in Georgia you get to the bank and you can open the bank account in one day evening and get the cart another morning. and here I went the day before, and we had an appointment for next day. It was a surprise that they told me I would get the card after one week. Ok. because of these procedures I was starving and had to go very quickly to have lunch with my colleague, and then I run to my statistics course. I turned up late. I just could not catch up the lesson (because nothing really worked for me), and was sitting and getting crazy. Then I had Czech language course it was absolutely relaxing after such a bad beginning. about 15 students from all around the globe: Italy, Germany, Turkey, Nigeria, Vietnam etc. I even found a Georgian girl at my course 😀 Jesus, how I missed a conversation with Georgians in real life.

I did not have time to write because there are so many things going on… I could not even contact my mom these days. Some so called “administrative” things took so long, and yeah, I am still in the process… Every day I have a lot of things to do and it’s never over. it goes again and again. This is how new student life in the new country looks like. Very confusing at the beginning, BTW. Until I’ll get used to the new life regime I have to disturb my supervisor all the time. But It should be emphasized that he is something different, I mean something different from common professors. I bet you can’t even imagine professor, fixing the bike for the student, making effort to change a tire and not only. Which professor will do so in Georgia? Several times a day I run to his office. But I’m so lucky that he understands me and I don’t have to feel guilty that I disturb him. He is capable to discuss everything with me. This is why I appreciate him so much. I really don’t know what I could have done without his help. I just did not know how all this effort can be paid him back, and asked him. He had a simple answer to this: by just writing well. So I will do my best, what he does expect from me.
So far I have chosen some subjects, as follows: 2 Languages: Czech and English; 2 Special seminars; Fisheries; Fish ethology; Statistics; Genetics and Biological invasions. Last two courses are taught at the Charls Univeristy. So I have a possibility to attend the courses outside CZU as well.
After completing the courses additional money will go to my bank account. This is how students are treated here. But anyway it absolutely depends on students.
P.S. we have called my bike Tanja after the Czech interpretation of my Georgian name 😀 😀 😀
I am very happy today! Although I was exhausted of cleaning others shit in the evening, morning turned up to be pleasant. In the previous post I wrote that I would gave the list of needed stuff Lukash, and yes, I did it. So when I came in the morning at my office, I saw the blow drier at my desk. I wanted it so much (I asked my roommate to borrow me a fan but she told me that her fan was out of order so I had to spend one more night without it). After this, the presents started to come to me 😀 I got cups; spoon, knife etc. and even the office stuff starting from pen to tape 😀 and what’s important I got very cozy, stylish and worm coat from colleague of Lukash. I like it so much and the fact that I don’t have to waist 2000 CZK on coat, makes me the happiest !!!!!
Yesterday I did not have anything so now I have almost everything 😀 It is amazing how people do care about foreigner student. I would like to say thanks again to these nice people from the department.
IDK what I could have done without their help.
There are still some activities which have to be done and we are trying to sort everything out step by step.
The picture of the day: enjoy 😀
I got to CZU, this was what I was waiting for so long and I am so excited to be here. I went to Staromestska to change money and I had a wonderful feeling, I really missed Prague ❤ but I have to tell you that I got here through a difficult AF way. Let me tell in details.
