Three things on my mind:
- I had an absolutely great time at a cabin with a couple friends, spending three days there during winter vacation. We relaxed, made food and went on short walks during the day, partied at night until 5am and still felt great waking up before everyone else on the mornings, to my surprise. Also played cards against humanity for the first time, a lot of it, and it was really fun and you get to learn the others humor.
- I hate hospitals irrationally much, but I’m also unbelievably thankful to them. Unlucky bad shit happened again like it has a tendency to when I’m finally on top of life again! (This is starting to be the rule of my life, but we’re just going with it at this point). I had a bad reaction to a vaccine, which doctor found out is probably more likely to happen because of immune-surpressing medicines I’m on (autoimmune disorder). I really hate throwing up.
- This travel video with a roadtrip through Mexico was so well shot and Jacob is really the only traveller I watch now. Like he’s got a really unusual lifestyle and a good balance between showing the spectacular places and negative sides with crises happening while travelling, but with a good, problem-solving, out-going attitude towards them. Just how unusual he lives is shown through his very minimal packing guide, too minimal for my taste as there’s no damn wool. How are you surviving in the cold, Jacob? Get a first aid kit in there! But he really seems so friendly, is extremely productive and what I would consider a true entrepreneur.
