Hey! Great news everyone! A week from now I will be in Indonesia. I fly from Amsterdam directly to Jakarta on May 5th.
My great-great-grandfather was known as an 'Empire Builder' and he did great things for Bandung, Indonesia. With this blogpost I will tell you the most important things that I know about my great-great-granddad.
Aren't you bored of doing nothing? What do you do all day? How do you cope with your current situation? - These are some of the questions people ask me on a daily basis. So with this '5 step tutorial-blogpost', I will teach you 'how to stay sane' while being bored out of your brain.
The sun is shining bright and I can feel my skin being touched by it's warmth. It feels great, but also makes me think.
My brother, Sam.
Today was a good day. Got a new phone, study, got a haircut. Changes come in all shapes and sizes. The biggest change, obviously, is the switch from doing absolutely nothing, to starting a study.
Monday, the start of a new week. For most people anyway. They drain their energy during the week, and then recharge over the weekend. They have active social life's and use the weekend to socialize with all their friends. Most people are so busy during the week, that their weekend time has become 'holy time'. They put as many social activities in one weekend as they can, to catch up with all of their friends. Making the weekend another chaotic period, leaving little room for 'recovery' for the week that lies ahead.
Weekend! It's Saturday morning, 07:13 AM, and I'm already wide awake. I often get asked questions like: 'why are you already awake? You don't have work, you have no schedule, why don't you sleep in?'. The situation that I'm in with my back, keeps me from doing activities. I sit at home a lot, go for occasional walks and obviously don't use much energy throughout the day. So basically, the fact that I barely do stuff is the reason that I sleep so little. With 5 hours of sleep, my body and mind can recover just enough for the day that lies ahead.
