Berlin marathon training, day 113. Rest day.
I’m trying to choose which color to paint my nails. It’s a difficult decision. Bright green or pearly beige?
We’re going to the wedding of our closest friends here. This puts me in a very strange mood. On the one hand, I’m excited for them, they’re a great couple, and they’ve wanted to get married for a quite a while now but couldn’t, long story.
On the other hand, all these weddings this year make me wonder if it’s time for me to finally grow up. You see I just do what pleases me, sometimes I’m rather selfish and immature.
I’m a trained physician but don’t practice. I did a bit of clinical work, mostly because I loved being a detective, figuring out what the patient’s problem was. Then I got bored and moved into research, looking for novel HIV therapies. Lab work was exciting — for a while. Now, I’m working as an UX designer, developing e-learning programs for medical education. I love, love, love my job now. But mostly because I get to learn something new, and do really cool stuff. Not because I’m doing something worthy for society. Maybe I should stop being such a child, make some adult decisions about work, relationships, family.
Let’s not even mention all the time I spend running and blogging… Anyone else struggling with balance?
Anyway, today I’m still a child, gonna go for the bright green.
