It’s the 1st of February, 2021.

Oh God, 2021 still feels unreal.

And I decided to set some language learning goals today. And give you guys an update on what I’m doing too!

Why set goals one month later?

Everyone makes New Year’s Resolutions. Why am I doing this one month late?

For one, that ship has sailed. (lol) I got carried away by something else.

But more importantly, people always go overboard with their 1st-January resolutions. Since they’re ‘resolutions’ and not ‘goals’, most people just think about lofty things like ‘learning a new language’ or ‘starting to [insert new healthy habit]’.

It can be really demotivating to fail in the first month.

That’s why I waited it out. I wanted January to set the tone for the rest of the year, get a feel for how nice 2021 wants to be to me, try some things I might want to accomplish, and then project or extrapolate the rest of the year, to get a realistic goal.

Hejjjjj guys! It’s been a while – indeed, it’s been at least two months since I last posted here. If you didn’t see that post (which I won’t blame you for: I’d be glad to have any actual followers, considering the young age of this blog), my computer got brutally manslaughtered, and being some sort of OCD who hates typing and doing any actual work on mobile devices, I put the blog on hiatus. Oh, and a month-long trip was also part of the reason (or excuse). Anyway, after lots of troubles, I’ve managed to get myself a shiny new laptop to type on a day or two ago, which is now perfectly set up to revive the productive side of me. But before I delve into what I’m going to do, allow me to update you fellas a bit on what I’ve done and been doing:

Oh well, just as I was pumped to start writing a lot again, life tripped me and forced yet another hiatus onto my blog. A bit more than a week ago, I brutally murdered my laptop – more like manslaughter maybe – by soaking it with liquid. In a very embarrassing way that I really don’t want to talk about. But you can imagine. Anyhow, since I absolutely hate typing long articles on virtual keyboards (both of my devices’ screens screw up a lot!) it seems like I’ll have to give the blog another rest, at least until I get a replacement (it’s too costly to fix stuff in Scandinavia) or a Bluetooth keyboard maybe. Meanwhile you’re welcome to read all the (few) posts that I’ve written painstakingly!
