I’ve been writing a blog post every week for almost a year and at some point the engine is running out. This week, it’s come to the point where I had absolutely no idea or inspiration about what I could write about in a matter of a few hours.
There are a lot of things I’d like to try to write about, however, I’d need more time. This seems to be the general theme and so here I am writing about how I wasn’t going to write anything ’cause my brain has left the building.
Beginning of the week, we came back from New York (note to self: upload the photos), thought we had conquered jet lag by the evening (fools!), both were out for work all week and I attended a fantastic Christmas work party in Canterbury.
So when the weekend finally came around on Friday evening, other things such as sleeping, eating and whipping the flat back in an acceptable state were more important.
I’ll be off now and watching another episode of The Crown (which is bloody brilliant).
Mainly I’ve been working on my reindeer card ready for the season and it was already hump day by the time I looked up.
✨If you’re one of those organised people, this way to the festive cards.✨
I recently listened to an episode of the Rich Roll podcast with Gretchen Rubin and it is all about how you thrive and how you react to inner and outer expectations.
This past Wednesday (27th September) a year ago, I had my brain surgery. One of the things I asked my surgeon right after surgery was whether I could still box and do headstands.
I was going to write an ode to public transport, having recently gotten back on the rush hour trains. But today, elections in Germany took place and I am currently watching live streams of the results.
I voted in this election, my first time ever actually voting in a German election. I was torn, like many other Germans, even those living in Germany, on whether it was even worth voting.
It’s been a little over a year I’ve worked in the traditional sense. The main reason for my break was this and some other things (in German), as well as this blog and my cards.
I think it is fair to say that it’s been a bit of an odd journey. Though, it was also very good for me, cathartic. I had a lot of time to reflect on the past, work through some things that have been lingering in the back of my mind for years and took a lot emotionally, and think about the things I want to be doing with my time.
