My name is Elin - A pro cycling lover's reflections

I'll die tonight, I think

Category: Life

If you would look at me right now you would probably see those very tired eyes and a person who looks hungry. I’m starving. I’m still in school to write an interview so I don’t have to think about it later. I won’t finish it today, but I guess I’ll be ready tomorrow morning, which feels very nice. I had a very nice and long conversation with one of my class mates so I’m trying to make something of it, and I hope it’ll become a great text, but then I have to sleep.

So the days subject has been "Coma" and unconsciousness, the story? I’m writing a new novel and it’s about a young fellow which goes a boxing match and gets assaulted by a "Player", suddenly he faints, and the story is really about waiting for this guy to wake up from the sleep, how will his friends and family react? How will his life become if he ever wakes up? I can’t forget when Saul Raisin fell of his bike and was nearly dead for a while, when it was life and death, you get so worried about everything and even if I haven’t been sitting there beside a man in coma, I think I can tell the story because my friends has been on hospital, my mother has broken her ribs etc. so I know what it is to be afraid. Okay, that’s everything for today. See ya!

One more time...

I checked out the ENECO Tour today, I had hoped for Vincenzo Nibali, he really deserved to win the time-trial but George Hincapie took the victory instead. Our swede, Gustav Larsson did a great 9th place, but he can do better. About Nibali, I remember he took the third place during the U23 Time Trial World Championships 2004. Janez Brajkovic won the competition, so I know Nibali is a very good time-trialer.  

Sergey Lagutin seems to be at the U.S. National Criterium Championships, in Illinois and of course, it’s great but I want him to be in Europe.   

Okay, I’m so tired so I can barely write so okay, I will check out some snooker tonight, and then I’ll sleep and I’ll work and I will continue with my packing. Bye

Okay, today is not a funny day, headache, pain in my stomach and lower back, my feets hurt and I'm so fat today. I tell you, I'm not waiting to become pregnant now. I don't want to feel even worse than I am right now. Time for sleep. Love you guys.

Ps. Sasha, you were so cute at that photo.
