Keyboard

Yesterday I dropped a glass of some shit liquid on my keyboard. At first sight everything was okay: after thorough drying, wiping and shaking the keyboard looked work. And nothing foretold troubles...

However, when I waked up and got on the my Mac, I noticed that main part of buttons was stuck and space button wasn’t working totally. I made what desperate attempt to cleaned up at least space button... I started messing around with buttons and finally found faulty bracket under button. My gosh! I had nothing left but throw away it.

Nice, but what’s next? I still need to work! Yes, I have the laptop, but 27» and 15» not the same, right? I understood I need the new keyboard. I’m taking my bike, and ran as crazy horse to nearest mall and buying new keyboard. Previous keyboard was short Magic Keyboard, but now I wanted to buy Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad (more widely than previous one). No sooner said than done. I bought a new keyboard and ran like hell back home.

Two hours later I understood to accustom new device is not easy, you know... Let me show you:

Previous wonderful life. My position was symmetrical towards the screen and keyboard, right? I’ve sat straight and everything was alright!

Now I have to moved the mouse to the right because new keyboard upsets the balance!

Or I have to moved the keyboard to the left, but in that case my hands won’t be symmetrical towards the main axis! And it’s sad :-(

Well, hopefully it wouldn’t take me too long to accustom...

Malta

Hey guys!

Yes, I’m writing in English cause my teacher Irina gave me such a home task. And I apologize in advance for grammatical and syntactical and the Devil knows which kind of other mistakes, but I must try lol.

So, I have visited Malta not long ago. And now I’m going to give you some piece of information about that place. Let’s start with some general knowledge... Malta is a Mediterranean island located close to Italy. There is a point, that ’Malta’ means ’honey’ in ancient Greek. The main language is English and as I’ve read before the best schools for learning English are there.

Okay, I was there only for one week, but I guess I have got acquainted with this country quite well. I lived in Saint Julien (not a large district on the East side of the island) in a simple hotel near the harbor and my ordinary day there looked like that: I woke up about 7 am, then I walked to a coworking station Soho to stay there till 6pm (cause all the time I had to work hard, considering that there wasn’t WiFi in my cheap apartment).

Every day after work I had several hours to enjoy new locations, which I discovered regularly. I started my acquaintance from a capital of the country — Valetta. Fortunately, my residence was not too far from that city.

Actually, I can’t say a ’city’... all cities on Malta look like districts in Moscow (perhaps even less). So it’s funny to name them real ’cities’.

Valetta is awesome! Old architecture coexists with modern shapes.

Wow, these guys know how it works:

Stairs:

Some wonderful modern buildings against the ancient wall:

After scouring the city, I took a little detour to visit that exactly exhibition of a local artist.

I was fascinated:

The next place I visited was a famous viewpoint of Valetta. There is a grand view of Malta from there:

I spent subsequent days on walking along narrow and old-fashioned streets and beach promenades of Saint Julien.

I remember the evenings specially, when all lights and lanterns came up and people were going to the restaurants and cosy cafes to dinner, chat and dance. That silent sleepy coast is beginning to revive.

Yeah... I was alone — is it so to say sad... Next time I would take someone with me to share my feeling with someone else.

(Too short and confusing, well sorry. My next story will be stronger and more informative lol)

Updated: the whole text was checked by Irina ha-ha-ha!
