2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for my blog. Doesn’t it look great?

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 5,700 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

It’s been a while

Sometimes a seagull steals your fish. Or, sometimes life doesn't go the way you want it to.

Sometimes a seagull steals your fish. Or, sometimes life doesn’t go the way you want it to.

A few months have gone by without a post from me. For several reasons. I didn’t know what to write, or how to write it and when I did write, it wasn’t for this blog.

I had to write a big report for work, a whole 175 pages. I was very proud of it when I finished it and they were happy as well. Another company offered me a better job while I was still working on that report. Changing jobs means making arrangements of all kinds. Handing in your resignation, writing more documents to make the transfer easier and making sure the commute to the new job is arranged. So that and other private matters kept me from writing.

These past few months also made me realize something. I want to write, badly. Not just blog posts, but stories. I already had the idea of making a website about narrative design, which would also be part of my writing portfolio. So that’s also something I’m working on.

I will still post to this blog when I can find the time between my full time job, resting, my boyfriend and my other website. I probably have to learn some things about time managements.

PS. I took this photo at Texel, Ecomare. They take care of sick/stranded seals and birds and set them out again when they are healthy. These seals are old or unable to survive in the wild.

2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for my blog. I think it’s awesome they wrote a script for it amd they allow it to easily share with our readerd. So, here’s the summary! I thank you all who come here regularly amd who pass on my blogs to other people. 🙂

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 6,100 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 10 years to get that many views.

Updated

I have updated the two pages about me. Not much is added, besides some links on the hypermobility page and the addition that I’ve graduated from university. I’m getting my diploma on Tuesday and I’m very excited 😀 Who wouldn’t be?

When I was updating the page about hypermobility, it felt incomplete. I’ve learned and experienced a lot in these two years and I do see people coming here to read about my experiences. For them, and for me, I’ll write some more general posts about hypermobility. Note that I’m certainly not a doctor and have never studied anything in the field of medicine or biology. These posts are all my own experiences and definitely don’t apply to everyone who is hypermobile.

No gaming

It’s been a while since I last played League of Legends. Winter time is definitely my least favorite time of the year. It’s cold and now there’s snow and it’s freezing (-6 degrees celsius). This kind if weather makes my body disagree with itself. My joints don’t wanna work together so I can’t work on the computer for a long time. If I do, I might damage my joints and might not be able to game again like I did. Right now, I’m also having problems again with a neck injury from last year. I can’t watch a flickering screen with fast-moving pictures. Now it’s not a choice anymore if I want to go game or not. I can’t, even though I want to very much. It’s good that there are things I can do without a computer. Reading books and writing are excellent. But that’s why it’s quiet here. I will come back and write more. I promise 🙂
