Yesterday Skyhoundz published a new exclusive disc policy. It explains that from 1st of July on Skyhoundz competitions you can use Hyperflite products, as Hyperflite is the main sponsor of these events. You can see the details here. Since yesterday I received some messages and phone calls and I read some comments about this decision, so I think it’s easier to explain here what do I think about this. I can understand that it was important from the point of view of Hyperflite, and I don’ t agree with those that see it as a tragedy.
My favorites were those who complained that from now on they have less chances to win, because they can throw only with other disc types. I have the privilege to know some World Champions personally. They can play with anything (including plates, cap of Pringles chips, and any other flat and round objects). If your success depends on the brand sticker of your disc, maybe you need to practice more.
One day my black and white cat Nyápic arrived home with one eye inflamated. I called Dalma, our brand new vet immediately. It was a typical conversation: ˜do you work today?“No, so you can come anytime`. After a quick checkup we received some anti-inflamatory and good advices. I was not really happy: this cat is a huge one, about 8 kilos, and to put drops into his eyes twice a day was a real challenge.
This happenned on Friday. Sunday night Dalma wrote me on chat asking about the cat. Until that I received some nice bleeding scratches already, but his eye was the same. So we agreed that we’ll need an X-ray.
Next morning everything became visible. Nyápic had an abscess in his mouth, and the inflamation had an effect on his eye. He was operated, and we received a lot of antibiotics in capsules. I hope you can feel my pain: drops and capsules, twice a day…
Today our new vet was born! A huge congrats to my BFF, who was a witness a lot of trouble and joy of my life for many years with endless patience and humor. From now on she has a brand new role as she will take care of the health of our four-legged and no-legged family members.
I know better than anyone else all of the doubts, fears, pain, loss and fights behind these years, and I’m sure it was worth. LÖB, I can’t explain how proud am I! I know you did it not just for yourself… I don’t know where is he now, but I’m sure that he is happy and proud too as his dreams came true today.
Mondays are always painful and chaotic somehow. But do you know how is a typical one when you have multipied jobs? Here is a brief summary of my last Monday.
15th of February was an important day in high schools of Hungary: this was the deadline for the kids to send the papers for graduation exams and also to select a university to continue their studies. The administration room was full of kids all day, it was almost impossible to enter. On Mondays normally I work from 12 to 6, but this time I had to be there earlier to help my students and their parents to fill the papers. At twelve I was happy to leave the paperwork and go to teach – six classes in a row, because one of our colleaguages is sick so I had to substitute her. No problem: the group will write a test tomorrow so it’s a good opportunity for a last practice. I prepared everything last night so I needed just to print it and that’s all. And if I’m quick enough I’ll still have time to continue that article that I’ve started to write on the weekend but couldn’t finish yet. It’s for a magazine and the deadline is 15th of February of course… I crossed the corridor again trying to answer some questions like how to calculate exam scores or which university allows not to study maths at all. As I reached the printer the secretary told me that one minute ago a misterious small plastic part of it was broken, and since that you have to be there and check every single pages not to get stucked. Like this my ‘print and go’ project lasted half an hour. During this 30 minutes one of my friends who is also a teacher here received the news that his son broke his arm on a trip and probably needs to be operated. As I had time because of the scfxxxx… printer I joined to her for some minutes just to support her.
