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?
So yeah. I admit, I'm not a fan of flying... nervous like crazy, a thirteen hour direct flight to Jakarta... My life and the life's of many others in the hands of 2 pilots. Pilots are people just like you and me, and people are known to make mistakes.. It won't be the first time a pilot makes a mistake and crashes the plane..
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.
It's Saturday night and that means 'fun time' for a lot of people. People work hard all week long to spend their hard earned money in the pub or club. They post pictures of themselves with their friends on their social media accounts to show the world how amazing their life is. Life in the modern western world is great, right? No one has to worry about their safety and can do/say whatever he or she likes. Every one is used to the comfort our modern western world has to offer.
I haven't been doing any writing the last couple of days, one of the reasons is that I don't really know what to write about. I don't do much on a daily basis, so I sometimes kinda run low on inspiration. And besides the lack of inspiration at the moment, the last 9 days, I've been playing this new video game called 'Sea of Thieves'. A Pirate's Life For Me.
As a kid I was not that good at making new friends and still aren't the best. Never had a lot of friends and still don't have a lot of them either. I can count my friends on one hand. Is this a bad thing? No, I don't think so. It just means that the select group of people who I see as my friends are 'loyal friends'. I don't see them too often, but when we're together it's like we see each other every day.
