I have been using the journal and the Habit Trekker app to keep track of what I am doing and to provide a reminder of sorts. Whilst I have been feeling a bit ill the past few days (tired and sore), I still make sure that I get chores, my art challenge and Duolingo lessons completed each day. By the way, I decided last week to also include Duolingo language lessons into the mix. I figure that I want to learn some French and Dutch anyway, but Latin is one of those “play” languages that I am doing solely for the fun of it. It provides some insight into several other European languages that spawned from it.
Last Thursday, I decided to run an experiment. I decided to see if I would pine for BDO if I didn’t play it all day. The answer is a resounding “no”. I haven’t loaded it since the game went down last Wednesday. Whilst I was aware that I had stopped actively playing the MMO, seeing my suspicions confirmed helped me make a decision to take a break for a while. If I feel like returning again in a month or more from now, I have that option. No pressure to play. I will, however, have to inform my guild officers and GM that we’ll be taking a break. Disappearing without a word is a bit rude, after all.
Hubby was kind enough to get me Farming Simulator 2019 Platinum Edition. I haven’t loaded it yet but I’m really looking forward to seeing how it compares with FS17. I will, however, need to
The plants are still alive. However, some of the seeds I planted last week haven’t sprouted yet. I am unsure if it is too cold for them or there is some other reason behind them not germinating. In any case, I have eaten a few peas from the tiny field pea plants growing along the front fence. I need to do some weeding in all of the garden beds, but it is less priority to dealing with the lawn and cleaning up some of the fence lines at present.
It is odd going through the French and Dutch Duolingo lessons. Late last year, the platform reworked the material, bringing in line with international certification standards. Whilst it still has the whacky sentences about Elephants and strawberries, the layout is more conducive to putting it into long-term memory.
I have successfully finished an entire week of the art challenge. ❤ Whilst I am a long way from being a professional artist, I am having fun and learning a lot through a combination of the challenges and various video tutorials on Youtube.
HEALTH & FITNESS
I need to observe recovery days to let my body recuperate from exercise. The past two days (and Friday) punctuate this point. I have been feeling especially tired and sore the past few days. The increased exercise has also required sufficient fuel, which has resulted in feeling like crap.
I got a lot done this past week. I will try not to be complacent, however. I have some other things I need to deal with as well, but it will be added into my daily routine over time.
Anyway, I hope that you guys have a productive week. Try not to get bogged down by social networking and with other unproductive garbage. Next time that you feel the need to reply to a post, consider jumping over to an art tutorial instead or something else that provides you with the skills and knowledge needed to work towards a better version of yourself. We all need to do this more, including me.
Anyway, I leave you guys with the following audio track of Anna Bergendahl from her 2010 album Yours Sincerely. It is a call to action, to not give up on the things that matter to us. We can learn and we can grow in defiance of those that want us to fail.
