  • Losing 12kg over the course of January. Still losing more than 2kg every week. Staying motivated (so far). Getting faster and stronger (still working on better and harder).
  • Sunshine in the afternoon! Walking through Olympiapark to go swimming. Being pushed hard by some other swimmers, I had to put in a lot of effort to keep up but felt really good afterwards.
  • Meeting my goal to visit every single public bath (indoor) in Munich! In summer I'll do the same with the outdoor pools.

RELEASE - What did you let go of this year? // Expectations. I feel like I can deal with disappointment more matter-of-factly, more drama-free. Take things as what they are. I'm trying to appreciate everything as best as I can as I go along, the good things and the bad things. Because the bad things make the good things shine more. I wonder why I always end my years on a rather sad note. Looking back there are always wonderful moments to cherish in every year and it actually surprises me because I keep forgetting about those highlights and can't help but focus on my mediocre mood all the time. That is a reason why I write everything down. To make me realise I have a good life. I just don't see it as such a lot of the time. It must be my personality. Truly happy moments are rare and whenever I have one of them I wonder what happened. A sudden change in brain chemistry? Or did everything really just fall into place? I often feel cont...

RELEASE - What did you let go of this year? // I sold my old car. I lost all affection for the places I used to live (Munich really is the place to be at the moment). My huge internet obsession (maybe). I feel like I don't spend *all* the time in front of the computer anymore when I'm at home. A good deal of social anxiety and giving a shit about what other people think. I've always been pretty complic... eeeh I mean authentic, of course, and I'm becoming even better at it. I know, not everybody likes that but I feel like some people (the good ones obviously) actually appreciate it when others are a little more special. Get your freak on! Mhh... I might have lost my desperate need to please men? In part? I just try not to take any shit anymore. Not get too attached. Me before you. Sorry, guys.
