A quick peek behind the curtain

I realize that I’m not writing a lot of interesting stuff on my blog for the time being. Filling it with easy posts solely about e.g. metal music and running wouldn’t paint a real picture of my life at the moment, so I’m not going to resolve to that.

So what have I been up to lately? Well… I’m seeing a lovely girl, I’ve been to the dentist for the first time in several years (everything ok), I’m quite busy at work, I’ve been cut into by a doctor (nothing really serious but there’s a healing process), I’ve painted inside my house and replaced a few pieces of furniture, I’ve bought and assembled furniture for my terrace, I’ve cut down a tree in my garden and turned it into firewood, I’ve become a board member of the civic association in my country town, I’m planning maintenance work on my private water supply together with a neighbour, I’m in the process of getting my car approved for two more years at the biennial, statutory inspection, I’m trying to get better at unwinding and relaxing, I’m learning to appreciate good tea (but also rediscovering the joy of good coffee), I’m expanding my cultural horizon with new genres for music, movies and series, I’m thinking about how to celebrate my 30th birthday later this year, I’m starting to do gardening, and undoubtedly more.

That’s it for now.

Here’s a small bonus for my fellow metal heads:

Running at Lake Madum

Yesterday I had a day off and had a visit from an old friend, which I hadn’t seen in real life for a long time. It was a fantastic day and evening, but to your – either satisfaction or disappointment – I’m not going to write many words about it. Not everything has to be documented on the mighty Internet. We met at Lake Madum, where we went for a nice jog. It’s only 7 km from my house, but I had never been there before. Having a place this lovely nearby was a pleasant surprise. When we get decent summer weather, I imagine using my bike to get there and then going for a run and a swim.
