Ill? And Life List

In the glorious year of 2011 there was only one Thursday like the third Thursday of November, although this Thursday seemed as uneventful as any other Thursday. The newspapers wrote about fake doctors, right-wing politicians, fish and the lack of snow.

 

In the ordinary life of Zsuzsi the day moved forward in slow-motion, she talked to a lot to Finnish colleagues and dreamed about pancakes with fresh berries and cream.

 

 

Song: Stereo Hearts by Gym Class Heroes feat. Adam Levi

Feeling: painful and sleepy. I could hardly get out of bed this morning and I’m still feeling quite unwell. My shoulder and lower back are feeling very sore, and the common cold seems to be attacking as well.

Work-out: yoga will do.

Lunch: chicken salad.

Additions to life-list: increase knowledge of yoga and tea.(note to self: add them to life-list.)  

Idea: Allie mentioned Croatia for summer holidays… it might be more viable than some exotic place on the other side of the planet (since I’m poor!), so the idea really deserves some serious consideration.

Thought: Why write about one thing only when there is enough space to babble on forever?

Opinion: the great thing about learning foreign languages is that sometimes it feels like you are hitting your head against the wall – but then suddenly – boom – you realise that you understand it and you can use it AND you’re good at it. Being able to see the progress so clearly is what makes language learning really fascinating.

 

Yes, I doubt this day will go to (my personal) history, but it’s OK. Being able to enjoy days like this is more important than chasing and enjoying the really amazing ones.
