Yes, it is true. I have managed to put together an 8000-word long essay, which is up to the high standards of the School of Museum Studies. Now I can enjoy the nice meals my wife is preparing for Christmas and play with my kids. Oh, wait.
It is now official. My professor praised my efforts on the first context chapter – Museums and Automobiles. A little TLC (Tender, Love and Care – an abbreviation used in classic car scene to describe an old car which needs just a little work to be perfect) and it is now complete. I am not getting all mushy and philosophical here but this is proof that being 41-year-old with a wife, two kids, a career, plenty of side jobs is not a reason for not following your dreams. Back in the early 1990s there was a South Korean off-roader, called the SsangYong Korando. Korando stood for “Koreans can do”. Now a group of Hungarians decided to produce this car under licence, naming it Hucando (Hungarians can do). No, it is not a joke. But I feel very Hucando now 🙂
There are just a few days to celebrate as two more context chapters need to be finished by next May. On one hand it is easier, because now I know what is expected from me. On the other hand it is a bit frightening for precisely the same reasons. I need to keep up the good work. Please root for me 🙂
A lot of other stuff is happening these days. My son, who’s not even 6-year-old participated in an English-language play at his Kindergarten. I was sooo proud. Next year he needs to go school. We were so worried and eventually decided to set up a private academia for him and 10 other kids. It is all the rage now in the UK so I heard, but it is something very new in Hungary. We’ll see whether we can pull this off.
Let me wish Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to all my readers. Boldog Karácsonyt és Sikerekben Gazdag Új Évet kívánok!
