Poland

First off, this is Poland’s national anthem listen to it while you read.



As some of you may or may not know I have a girlfriend named Agnieszka Ciesielska and she lives in Poland. Earlier this August she came to visit my until the end of September. It was roughly seven weeks of her and I being good looking together. I told her I would return the favor and visit her in Poland this X-mas break. My flight was the 15th of December and it was a 7 1/2 hour plane ride to Amsterdam, then a 1 1/2 flight to Warsaw (Warszawa) which is the capitol of Poland. Agnes, along with her mom and sister, greeted me at the Airport. We met with a big hug and an even bigger kiss. We held up the line behind me. I didn’t give a fuck, except when I turned around and I was literally holding up everyone. It was everything I could have expected when I saw her again. She is beautiful. Big ass. Tatted up.



We got back to her parents house and I unpacked and then proceeded to pass out for 3-5 hours.

The first day was a blur because I was busy having muscular thick thighs. Her parents took us to a place called “Old Town“. I believe it was what was left of the city after WW2 and it was rebuilt. I enjoyed it. The architecture was interesting due to the fact that the city was fortified. It was cool to see the various points as to where it would be protected. Agnes, myself, and her parents went into a bar and started to do what all European people do well, drink beer. I myself am not a big beer drinker and I was taken back by the GIGANTIC mugs they serve the beer in. Before I even went on the trip I kept hearing about this juice they put in the beers. It can be all sorts of flavors raspberry, peach, etc. It was actually pretty fucking delicious. I thought I would be a total homo if I drank it, but it turned out to be pretty alright.

After a few days in Warsaw Agnes’ parents put us in a hotel in Krak√≥w. We got up real fucking early to get on a train that took us there. The train ride was 4 hours. First off, if anyone trains hard they know their legs get big and that it’s a pain in the ass to go anywhere. I am not huge by any standard, but I do have big legs. The train was like a roller coaster that WAS 4 HOURS LONG and just shook violently instead of going through loops. I felt like Leslie Neilson in Wrongfully Accused after he got out of the hydraulic car (Here is the link to get the reference 1:40). We got settled in at the hotel and then went site seeing in Krakow. The city was badass. All the shit was real old and pretty. We ate at a traditional Polish restaurant that was in a basement. All the walls were brick and it was cool going down two flights of stairs to the restaurant. It was even cooler when I had to spider-man my way down through the staircase, which was apparently meant for people short than 5″2 because I banged my head on the ceiling. By no means am I considered tall, but still, C’mon! During the dinner Agnes and I had some QT time and after we went back to the hotel. At the hotel we shared our first “Look, I gotta take a dump experience”. The bathroom was centimeters away from the bed, the room was small.

The next day we took a bus to Zakopane, which was 3+ hours. It is a mountain town, which has a dialect of its own, it lies at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. We got there pretty late so we just walked around the city and did some sightseeing and eating.


(Yes I am great with public speaking. You don’t have to tell me.)

The following day Agnes’ parents drove up and took us to a town a little further than Zakopane called Male Ciche. It was fucking cool. I hadn’t seen snow in a few years, considering I live in south Georgia. I loved every second of it. We did some sight seeing and some snowboarding. I’ll tell you something right now. Just cause you longboard DOES NOT mean you will be a good snowboarder. I busted my ass every 2 fucking feet. I hurt my left wrist, jammed/fucked up my right thumb, and twisted both my knees in ways that they shouldn’t twist. Norbert (Agnes’ stepdad) rode down several times by the time it took my to go down once. One time he was laughing at my as he rode above me in the ski lift. He is a real funny dude. I felt demoralized. It was fucking frustrating. Especially when you land on fucking ice. Later that night, we went to a place called Terma Bania. It’s like a indoor/outdoor spa. They had several different pool areas and outside hot pools. They had an area that you could get out of the hot pool and run around in snow, then jump back in. It felt like burning.



Finally, I was on my last day in Poland. It consisted of driving for 10 hours back to Warsaw or at least we were in the car for roughly 10 hours. We went to a work party that Agnes was invited to, due to the fact she fucking works there. I think we were both tired at this point so after an hour or so we went to pick up Norberts kids and chilled at the house for the night. I played some PS Kinnect with Caroline (She is 9) and beat her fucking ass at every game, except the swordfighting one. Her spastic childish movements were better than my attempt at precise sword play. Caroline was real cool. She was an energetic little girl that really grew a liking towards me and was actually upset when I left. I’ll miss her. I couldn’t have had a better time with better people. Her family really treated me like I was one of them. I am grateful for they experience they gave me. The next morning I packed my shit and went back to the airport. Made it to Paris. MISSED my god damn connecting flight. Had to stay an extra day. Fucking sucked. Overall I spent 43 hours traveling in one week. It’s pretty tiring. Did I mention that I sat in a seat for 43 HOURS!?!?!?!?!

Things I learned/Observed:
– There is an impressive amount of Asians in Poland
– Everyone has long femurs, most everyone
– The biggest meal is traditionally in the middle of the day
– For Breakfast and Dinner they eat sandwiches (One piece of bread and some toppings)
– Driving in Poland is fucking cool. Everyone is real aggressive. I liked it
– I miss my Girlfriend
– Pierogi is a dumpling that I’ll never eat again after that vacation
– Everyone tries to get to where they are going AS FAST AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE
– People look at you funny if you aren’t skinny and have long hair



Some one asked to see what she looks like so bam and yes I was absolutely drunk.

Went into the gym to feel around, basically. Traveling took it outta me.

I made it back. Should have been yesterday, but the god damn flight to Paris was an hour late and the connecting flight took off 10 min before I even made it to the fucking terminal. Doing a write-up with some vids.

Kocham Cie Agnieszko VS 2.0

I came across a movie called “The Karate Dog” today. It’s incredibly awesome. Dirt Nasty, Chevy Chase, John Voight, and several other actors are in it, which is surprising. It’s terrible, but for some reason I couldn’t take my eyes off it. I think Dirt Nasty is a very under-rated comedic actor. He reminds me of a younger Leslie Nielson, like the totally oblivious hero-type.

I’ll be flying to Poland this Thursday around 5 and I won’t be posting for the next 11-ish days or so. Not that anyone gives a fuck besides the consistent three fellas that post comments on here. From the 15th to the 24th I’ll be spending some QT with my lovely girlfriend in Europe. Just me and her being awesome. Never been to Europe so I assume everyone is going to try to Rob/Kill/Rape me. That’s why I am going to walk around with my fists clenched while I am there. Hopefully Agnes will be ready to ride on them haters if some fool tries something. She is a bad bitch. I’ll let you guys know how awesome it is to bone outside in negative temperatures.

My hamstrings are not giving me enough pop on squats. I may be putting too much tonnage on them with the RDL’s. I might lower the weight on RDL’s and do less and see if that produces a better result.

I love Brent Kim

Get Hyped

You are so fucking welcome for that first link btw.

Brent Kim is a close friend of mine. I would trust him with one in the chamber aiming at my fucking head. He is a jacked ass asian dude with zero self-confidence in certain task-specific areas (girls), but he is a fucking G none-the-less. He loves it when I get hyped up and emotional and I feed off of his energy. I benched 405 today (12/5/11) and I thought of him, totally homo. It feels good to have good friends for social support. If you don’t have any, I encourage you to do so.
