Day 980: Monday, Monday

I don’t know, I don’t have a particular hatred towards Mondays. The start of the week, typically a rest day when it comes to training, what is there to hate? I personally think that if you have a reason to hate Mondays (=you hate your job), then something is wrong and you need to change it. I don’t listen to the radio, it is too full of nonsense and I do prefer to work in silence but… if you listen to the radio on Monday morning, the presenters typically start moaning how bad it is that it is Monday. Once the weekend gets closer, they moan about the hours that are left until the weekend as if they are being tortured at work the entire week. They just cannot wait for Friday evening to kick in. I create my own work schedule and do pretty much what I like. I’ve always believed that you need to do what you like. I am struggling a bit with the things I am doing. I would like to ditch all that translation stuff or take in only interesting fiction translations and forget about boring contracts, etc. But I can manage with this shit for some more time. Although, in the ideal world, I would just be WRITING all day long. Writing blog posts, recipes, books, books, books… One day. In less than 980 days. I hope.

Maybe it’s just me. I don’t party, I run on the weekends. Friday evening is just another evening for me. And I like it that way. I wouldn’t sacrifice my long weekend workouts for a very long Friday evening out. I get bored at nightclubs, the music is awful. Of yes, unless Hurts or Muse are playing but how likely is that going to happen?

Progress Report

1. Own and live in a house.

Yet another driving lesson = important step towards the house because it is much easier to build a house if you can transport the materials to the site with a car… Found out my exam date as well. Some panic. Let’s say that I have 3 more lessons before the exam, but the exam does happen somewhere between today and 10 September (the day when I fly away to the UK for my Erasmus exchange).

2. Write AND publish a book.

The only “writing” I did was editing someone else’s book about wrestling and translating a really boring detail plan. Oh, I did send my weekly report to my coach, but this time it wasn’t that creative.

3. Win a major race.

Rest day but did get 12,000 steps in.

Walking home from the train station. Weather quite pleasant, slightly chilly even. Perfect for running, but it wasn’t a running day. Some of these rare days when I get home before 5 pm. This only happened because I had my driving lesson in another town, Rakvere at 2 pm and I didn’t go back to the “big city” Tallinn afterwards but went straight home instead.
