Resting in the hotel room between going to see 1. Delos island, 2. the oldest known depection of the Trojan horse (it is on a big vase in the archaeological museum on Mykonos), and 3. the myriad of small, winding streets with cute little shops today and a nice dinner and view of the sunset tonight.

Ahhh Girl, as you are a-wanderin' down these small, winding streets with cute little shops, make sure you are making mental notes about your many Penny Lane-ish observations. Like for instance, if you see any pretty nurses selling poppies from trays, or firemen carrying hourglasses, or barbers showing photographs of heads, or whatever. I'll probably never get to Greece, and I'm sure I'm not the only one traveling vicariously through you. :)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 There were poppies growing all over Delos and my mom is a nurse :-) That's kinda close. We did pass a few barber shops. The closest thing I had to a Beatley moment was seeing a lttle strawberry trinket box...well, other than the three comments I've gotten on my
Abbey Road/Peanuts t-shirt I got for Christmas.

Hey, that is kinda close. Well, just remember to keep Delos in your ears and in your eyes. And if you start to feel as if you're in a play… uh… you are anyway. :)

Sitting on a restaurant porch overlooking the Aegean Sea and feeling so thankful that @Ron Nasty saved my arse by having this thread cached on his computer.

Oh, and I am eating tomato balls and mushrooms in cream sauce (those are two separate dishes).

Listening to the U.S. version of Help! That leaves three U.S. albums left to get (not counting The Beatles Story): The Early Beatles, Revolver and Beatles VI

Well, I just found out that all these years I spent studying, working my ass off for a better future are - guess what!? - wasted! Yes, it was all in vain, it turns out. A poor girl from a small country like me can't get into a proper university. What in the world possessed me to believe that I actually had a chance, anyway? I was supposed to go to Germany. While everyone was having a childhood and had fun during their teenage years, I was stuck at home, studying, studying and studying. And today, I FINALLY found out, that my parents have been lying to me for I don't even know how many years, and that they only faked their encouragement for my further education. I suppose investing in their bipolar child would have been in vain - I don't even know why I couldn't see that until now. 
What's left for me now? I guess I'll just apply to an engineering university here and continue to study 24/7 for another half decade. And then, I can sit on my ass comfortably knowing that I'll rot to death, unable to find a job - just like everyone else over here nowadays. All I have to worry about right now is: passing the state exams, getting accepted into university and figure out how to live in an apartment I will never be able to afford. It doesn't matter that an excellent student like me would have easily been accepted in Germany where I could have made my own money and got through my studies easily. It doesn't matter that I've been stuck at home, learning German among a million other things, just for the occasion. Nothing matters, really. What matters is, that my parents don't feel like giving me a chance in life. That's that.
