Dear Diary,

Today I woke up at 7 and I took my breakfast at the balcony, watching the sun rise over the river. It was a small very inspiring moment and a great way to start my day.

Afterwards, I went to get a book to read at the balcony, but the cheap chair that I bought at IKEA was not comfortable enough to read so I went to read on my bed instead. I don't know if you can call "bed" the matress that I have on the floor and that I am temporarily using, but that's what I call it.

The book that I'm reading is called "The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment". I wasn't looking for spiritual guidance, but the book was recommended to me and I found in it some answers that I needed without even knowing it. It's recommended to read with your mind open!

After reading a few pages I fell asleep and I only woke some hours later at the sound of the doorbell. It was the IKEA employees! They brought the couch in boxes and after placing them in the living room they asked me to sign. "Aren't you going to mount them?" I asked and they said "No sir, we don't mount the furniture". I called my girlfriend who is at the other edge of Europe and she informed me that as at IKEA they had said that the delivery would be free and directly from the factory she assumed that they would also mount the couch for free. I sign the paper, wish them good day and leave the legos in the living room for another day.

I came to open some tables (of Poker :P) until lunch time and, as until now I only had a maximum of 7 running at the same time, I decided to write this diary entry. Don't worry, this will not be the new format of my blog. It's just a different post to which I am expecting reactions/feedback from whoever is following this page.

I wish you all of you reading this diary a very nice day.
