May 9th 2018, the day I proposed to Aninda and she said yes. I know, we’ve only known each other for a short amount of time. But when you feel like reborn because of newfound love, you travel the world to see the person you love, you feel extremely happy when you’re together with your lover and you feel like you never want to be apart, why wait?
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.
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.
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.
My life has changed, no doubt. From being active with sports every single day, to not being able to do any form of sport at all. I even made sport my job. I used to work as a personal trainer, giving physical training all day, everyday. I used to play rugby, which made me go to the gym often. Daily routines that I can’t do anymore. I can do sports again in time, but never on the same level as what it used to be and no rugby. And with my current situation I don’t see myself going back to the same line of work either. It’s time for (more) change.
