I have been lazy. In my previous post I declared that I will write more often, add more pictures and do all kind of silly things with this blog for people to enjoy. But I didn’t. Instead I have played a lot of video games, wall climbed, browsed the internet and watched competitive Counter-Strike. Perhaps I needed a small break from this writing thing, just to relax for a while. Pure laziness appears to be the best way for me to relax.
But in the end, there is nothing wrong at being lazy sometimes. Even if this ”sometimes” happens more often than it should. If I would have written as much as I had planned, it would have felt like a mandatory task to do, and there would have been no fun in it. After all, why would you do something if you’re not having fun with it? Forcing yourself to do something that you occasionally enjoy is actually quite an effective way to destroy the fun you’ve had from that thing, and can easily turn it into a tedious task that you hate. And I really don’t want to ruin this writing thing.
But my moments of laziness have actually been quite helpful. I’ve had quite a lot of time to think how I will spend my off-duty days for the next few months, now that I don’t have to stress about applying to law school anymore. Climbing, reading, gaming, writing and resting appear to be the top 5 list of my current interests, and I will probably concentrate on them for a while now. Until I get interested at something else. Actually I’m also quite excited about PC-hardware at the moment, after building my father a new computer and after changing some parts from my computer also. I’ve spent quite a lot of time searching for used parts to add a bit more juice to my build, but now it appears that I don’t actually have anything to improve on anymore since I don’t have a good enough monitor to take advantage of all the hardware that I already have. But replacing my monitor with a new one will end up costing me a few hundred euros, and I’m not sure if I really want to do that yet.
I’m quite excited about climbing too at the moment since I don’t have to concentrate on running anymore after finishing the ½ marathon. Hopefully I can stay motivated enough, to climb at least 3-4 times a week, so I could finally make some progress. Taking a few months off from climbing has been really refreshing, and I really enjoy doing it again. Before the break it started to feel more like a mandatory task that I didn’t really enjoy. Mostly because I forced myself to climb more often than I would have actually wanted to, which appears to be a bad thing to do. Hopefully I can take a bit more casual approach to it from now on.
But we’ll see. It’s hard to predict how long something will keep me interested, but it doesn’t really matter, as long as I have fun with the things I’m doing.
Oh, and here’s a picture of my nearest climbing gym. The bouldering corner there is quite small, as you can see from the picture, but it’s enough for me when I go there alone just to do a quick work out. And by the way, if you would like to try climbing sometimes, but don’t feel like taking any courses or buying harnesses and other gear, just go bouldering. It’s the cheapest and easiest way to try climbing, and it’s not so hard to find bouldering gyms these days.
