Esti gata de calatorie? Dupa ce am ajuns in Albania si am aflat povestea lui Ekrem Kizilgul, astazi iti propun sa facem o noua oprire pe harta povestilor. De data aceasta, mai aproape de casa, in Ungaria, mai exact, in Tiszaújváros.

Dintre toate raspunsurile pe care le-am primit pentru aceasta serie de interviuri, ale Kingai au fost cele mai apropiate de activitatile si starile prin care am trecut si eu. 

Daca esti pentru prima data pe blogul meu, Travel me a story este un proiect pe care l-am inceput pentru a arata ca „impreuna” nu este numai un cuvant care a fost folosit prea des in ultima vreme. Luptam impreuna impotriva acestui virus, dar avem de spus propriile povesti. Ne-am explorat pasiunile, am inceput cursuri online, am practicat tot felul de activitati fizice sau pur si simplu am lenevit in pat. Si este perfect in regula! Pentru ca suntem diferiti si avem propriul mod de a ramane calmi si de a „supravietui” acestei perioade. 

Este un proiect prin care am incercat sa ma reconectez cu oamenii cu care am pierdut legatura, din diferite tari, si sa arat cum se simt ei si cum este privit virusul acolo. 

Povestea ei incepe aici:

Lucrez ca Marketing Technology Manager la o firma care se ocupa de comenzi de mancare online. Domeniul „infloreste” in aceasta situatie pentru ca oamenii pot sa-si comande mancare delicioasa sau cafea de la NetPincér, in timp ce respecta regulile de distantare sociala. Potrivit regulilor impuse in Ungaria, din 28 martie restaurantele nu s-au mai deschis, pot oferi doar mancare livrata, iar personalul poate sta doar in zona restaurantului. Asa ca a fost o perioada nebuna la munca pentru ca noi puteam ajuta restaurantele sa supravietuiasca.

Nu puteam sa ma imaginez lucrand 5 zile pe saptamana de acasa, singura. Insa acum chiar ma bucur de calmul si linistea din jurul meu!

Dupa o saptamana de munca de acasa, am plecat din Budapesta si m-am mutat la mama, in Tiszaújváros. Ii multumesc mamei pentru ca ma ajuta mult si impartim activitatile de gatit sau de curatenie, imi lasa mai mult timp pentru mine!

Am fost foarte stresata in primele saptamani, dar apoi a trebuit sa gasesc o balanta, altfel stiam ca m-ar fi epuizat. Am incercat sa meditez, a fost bine, dar eram foarte obosita si adormeam. 

Ma trezesc la 07:00. Mananc micul dejun si beau cafeaua in liniste. Imi golesc mintea, ma uit in jur si este un sentiment placut, nu trebuie sa fug spre birou. Uneori citesc dimineata si incep sa lucrez la 9. Lucrez mult in timpul zilei. 

A fost greu pentru mine in prima faza pentru ca nimeni nu ma striga sa luam un pranz cu adevarat, pauza mea de masa era de doar de 10 minute. Mi-am dat seama ca zilele astea au fost nebune pentru ca nu aveam timp sa mananc si sa respir. Am inteles ca munca nu pleaca, ma asteapta foarte loiala. 

Termin lucrul in jur de 5-6 seara. Vorbesc cu mama, alerg sau ma plimb, citesc o carte, ma uit la film sau la un serial. Ma calmez putin si ma pregatesc sufleteste pentru urmatoarea zi

Citesc din ce in ce mai multe carti, am realizat ca sunt foarte interesata de psihologie si comunicare, de asemenea.

Am inceput un curs online gratuit: „The Science of Well-Being” la Universitatea Yale. Imi plac cursurile online pentru ca pot sa urmaresc un video daca am timp liber sau daca am starea potrivita. Chiar imi place acest curs pentru ca ma inteleg mai bine pe mine si sa ma dezvolt.

Sportul este de asemenea important. Obisnuiam sa alerg mult inainte de carantina. Din 28 martie in Ungaria putem iesi doar pentru a cumpara mancare, medicamente sau a face sport individual si la o distanta de 2 metri de alte persoane. Cred ca ma ajuta si faptul ca mi-am „schimbat” camera. Sunt norocoasa pentru ca pot alerga cu usurinta in apropiere de padure si nu intalnesc alti oameni. 

Dupa carantina, in primul rand, o sa-l vizitez pe fratele meu si o sa merg sa ma intalnesc cu prietenii. Doar o sa merg afara si o sa simt ca totul este bine. In viitorul indepartat, o sa merg la petreceri salsa si bachata, imi plac dansurile latine.a

Cred ca mi-e dor de fratele si prietenii mei, dar din fericire putem vorbi pe Messenger, facetime.

Ma simt norocoasa ca nimeni in familia mea sau printre prieteni nu a avut coronavirus. Este putin ciudat pentru mine ca asta se intampla in timp real, iar copiii mei vor citi despre aceasta situatie in cartea de istorie.

Are you ready to travel? After we visited Albania and we discovered Ekrem Kizilgul’s story, today I propose you to make a new stop on our story map. This time, closer to Romania, in Tiszaújváros. From all the answers that I get for „Travel me a story” series, Kinga’s answers were the most similar to the activities and moods that I’ve been through.

Travel me a story is a project that I started to show that „together” is not just a word that has been used a lot in these times. We are fighting together with this virus and we have different stories to tell about this. Some of us have explored their passions, have started online courses, practicing sports or laid in bed. But is perfectly alright! Because we are so different and we have our personal ways of remaining calm and „survive” this. 

Is a project that helps me reconnect with people I lost contact with, from different countries, and to show how they feel and what’s the face of the virus where they live.

This is her story:

I work as a Marketing Tech Manager at a firm which deals with online food order. It is blooming in this situation as people can order some delicious food or hot coffee from NetPincér while keeping the social distancing. According to the Hungarian regulations, since the 28th of March restaurants mustn’t open, the staff can stay only in the restaurant area and it can only provide food delivery.  So, it was a very crazy time at my workplace as we could help restaurants to survive this period.

I couldn’t imagine myself to work 5 days a week from home alone, but now I really enjoy the calm and silence around me.

After 1 week of home office I left Budapest, and I moved home to my mother in Tiszaújváros. I owe thanks to my mother for helping me a lot so we share the cooking and housework, it saves a lot of time to me. 

It was very stressful in the first weeks but after I had to find the balance or I knew it would burn me out. I tried to meditate, it was good but I was very tired and fell asleep.

I get up at 7 am. I eat breakfast and drink a coffee in calmness. Sometimes I just switch off my brain and look forward, and it’s a good feeling, I don’t have to run to the workplace. Sometimes I read books in the morning and I started to work at 9 am. I work hard during the day.
It was difficult to me in the first place that if nobody calls me to have a real lunch, my lunchbreak was only 10 minutes.
After I realised that these days were very crazy all day as I didn’t get a little time to eat and take a deep breath. I realised that work doesn’t run away, it is waiting for me very loyal haha. I finish work around 5-6pm. I chat with my mom, go for a run or a walk, read a book, watch movies or series. I calm down a little and prepare for the next day in my soul. 

I started to read more and more books, I realised that I am really interested in psychology and communication as well. 

I started an free online course „The Science of Well-Being”at Yale University as well. I like online courses as I watch video if I have free time or I am in the mood for it. I really enjoy this course as I understand myself better and develop myself.

Sport is important as well. Honestly, I used to run more before the quarantine time. Since the 28th of March in Hungary, we could go out for buying food, or medicine, do some sport alone and 2 m from other people. I think it helps me a lot that I changed „my room” as well.  I am lucky because I can go running easily in the little forest and I don’t meet a lot of people. 

Where is the first place you want to go after the lockdown? 

Just go outside and feel that everything is fine. In the far future salsa and bachata party, I like Latin dancing.

 

What did you miss the most? Or who? 

I miss my brother and my best friends but luckily we can keep talking via Messenger, Facetime easily.

 

I feel lucky that nobody in my family or among my friends had the corona virus. It’s a little weird for me that it’s happening in real time, and my children will read this in the history book.
