It’s been a while

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011 @ 12:01 am | english

I guess that’s kind of an understatement, since the last blog post was 531 days ago. What did happen? The better question is: Why did it not happen, why didn’t I write anymore? I don’t know. I guess I was happy, busy in my life and job. In the past I used to blog when I was either unhappy or my life was changing drastically. So, there we go, it’s this time again.

I decided to (almost) always blog in English from now on. First of all, I think my English got a little better, so that it doesn’t take me longer to do so. Besides, my sister is dying to practice her English skills and maybe this would even be a motivation to my mom to continue (begin?) to practice.
Anyways, I know more people that speak English than that are only speaking German. I am totally aware that the last two facts don’t matter if nobody actually reads this blog, but at the end I am still practicing my English as well as having a sort of journal that reminds me what I want to do with my life. And since there is at least a possibility someone else reads this, I am a little more committed.

Speaking of it, here are a few things I want to do, hoping that at the end I at least start some of it. I want to work out more and get back in shape. I had my blood work done last fall, and my numbers were not really spotless. Every day a chicken burger with fries without working out didn’t really help either.
Then I want to play in an orchestra again. I didn’t really bother to look for one yet, since it will need a lot of time. I probably have to practice a lot more to have a chance as well.
I need to learn Spanish. Being able to speak a second language quite fluently is pretty cool, and it made me feel like learning a third one would be even better.
Similar to the first goal, I want to do more sports. I want to play in a small soccer league, play volleyball regularly and maybe start doing some kind of martial arts sport, mostly for to get better body control.
Last but not least, I need to start working on my website again. In my opinion it is a great idea, and it would be too bad to let it get wasted.
I know I will probably never do all of the things in the list above, but I would count it as a success if I do half of it continually. That’s it for now, let’s see if anyone even notices that the blog is back…

    I’ve noticed :)

    thanks to RSS I noticed that one as well. :-)

    Actually there are not much differences between my “open tasks” and yours. Maybe this could be another (worthless) trigger to finally get some things done? Let’s see.

    (With the help of Liferea, and a litte late, but I hope that counts too.)

    Hey Stinker,

    wie viel von Deiner Liste schaffste denn bis Juni? wir würden dir dann gerne mal bei Capoeira (Julias Vorschlag für martial arts) zugucken. Freuen uns schon sehr, dich wieder zu sehen (auch wenn Du dann noch kein Spanisch sprichst und du die Volleyballangabe noch nicht übers Netz kriegst).
    Grüße aus dem mal wieder kalten Dresden,

    Martin und Julia
