Just a casual, quiet guy who loves getting lost in world of cars and racing, gadgets and other tech stuff.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
12th November 2014
I have never been guy who talks much and that is probably biggest reason I am pretty unknown to this community despite I am registered for bit over a year. My name is Emir and I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina, living in small town 56km away from capital Sarajevo. I am 21 years old. I have been into cars whole my life, dreaming of Lambos and Ferraris as a kid until they all got replaced by Mustang… I was born in time when my country was devastated by war going on and cause of which even 20 years after people here are struggling and situation is pretty bad. I finished school for pharmacy technician despite it wasn’t what I really wanted. When I was younger whenever I told that I want to do something about cars for living my parents were upset although I always sticked with dad who is driving truck for one construction company when repairs were needed on it, or on company vehicles or his personal car so I learn whatever I can. As my older brother made some mistakes in past and disappointed parents, I always tried to make them happy ignoring my wishes and needs… They proposed me school I finished and I accepted because I knew that will satisfy them. Moment when i got my diploma was moment which I will never forget no matter what happened. That day was day when for first time after 4 years I saw my dads eyes shining from happiness and for moment he forgot all problems, debts he dealt with during all of his life. I was sure I did right thing… I am looking for job 2 years already and was unlucky in finding one so I am unemployed at moment. I was always thrown away from society although I never knew why, I started spending time in front of PC playing games. In September 2013, I was playing NFS World when I met person who will in next 2 years completely turn my life around, who returned my will for living and in the end it will come out to be only friend I have. We shared much in common… Love for cars, we both never fitted in society and much more. She made my dreams come alive again… dreams to have own garage and job as mechanic. It was all great, each day spent in dreaming of endless roads across Canada and USA (She is from British Columbia). Each day was better than previous one until reality started hitting us hard… We planned to get me to Canada but it requires a lot of money… Money we don’t have… Me being unemployed and no income, her situation isn’t great either, she tried to save money for us but costs of living alone and other expenses didn’t allow her to do much. So now each day we spent we apreciate it and we spend it best we can but still in the end of the day we are evaluating our options and trying to find a way to make our dreams come true… No matter how hard it is… cars and bikes beside her are only things which can drive my thoughts away from problems and put smile on my face… Even just watching others ride/drive helps (I don’t have license yet, in process of getting it, failed written test last saturday, have another chance this one, hopefully I pass it). Despite my life and me are pretty lost cause I just can’t lose hope that things will get better and that me and her will finally get together and start working on achieving our goals… I deactivated facebook and all other social network accounts so this is only place where I could write what I had because I just couldn’t keep it inside anymore… It all just becomes too heavy after time… For those who bother to read it completely thanks for reading… Merry Christmas to CTzens who celebrate it.
