/ "i don't have time" - Clarification From Native Poles Needed
most polish people in poland still haven't mastered the fine art of time management. this is a generalization and could probably be also placed on young people in general around the globe.
concepts like buying food in bulk for the next few weeks or longer instead of one day at a time....or pushing appointments together so you leave the house once instead of going back and forth are still foreign to many.
many are trying to make a buck most of the time. if it's not that, they need time for impreza and recuperating.....for friends (especially girls with their girlfriends) and family.....time for being lazy. they don't want to commit themselves often because they dont know how tired they will feel when they have free time.....better to plan something easy.
capatalism is still relatively new to them.....their parents often haven't taught them how to manage time because they lived in a different situation.
they work hard (12 hours often)......but they could definitly be more efficient and practical with their free time.
bottom line is you are the foreigner.....the "novelty" that is nice to have around, but deserves little commitment as far as friendship and time.
my recommendation is that you get a huge list of friends....and then just see what comes your way here and there.
