Yesterday there was beginners training, my favorite day of the week.
But I didn't get there, and why? The excuse is that I had been up very early, and a couple of hours before training all the electricity in the entire eastern part of Denmark went. (No, seriously)
So I was one of about 3 million people without light for several hours.
So I found my self in my room, with nothing to read, and no music, computer, tv, cooking or even hot water, so eventually I got so bored I fell asleep and missed class.
I'm not even sure if there was a class because of blackout, but that is not the point of this post. The blackout was of course unfortunate, but that was just the catalyst. I have had a fairly poor discipline the last month or two, and it seems like even the tasks, duties and joys that was earlier so easy to do, have now become increasingly difficult for me to do, and I feel like I have to do something.
I'm not sure what though, so so far I will turn up at todays training and do my best.
