  4. Yes, I am back to this blog! 🙂

    Let me start answering the same way I did before: not thinking much, just the most straightforward, honest answer that comes to my mind (a very healthy exercise for me, since I tend to overthink everything):

    1) Probably 6. I am very happy that I started going to the gym after 4 years planning on doing that, but now I stopped again, due to Christmas etc. But I haven’t still recovered from constipation and related problems and I feel I am mentally unhealthy.

    2) Spending time with mu great buddies, Erik and Jonas (Jonas is Erik’s brother). We are doing absolutely nothing, just drinking liters of wine, whisky and playing music. Just being happy together.

    3) Not knowing how to turn my dreams into a “career”. Not having the courage to have the lifestyle I want.

    4) One that understands you.

    5) Yesterday, when I was drunk and frustrated fro not having learned to play the guitar when I was younger. Frustrated with my family that castrated this dream, frustrated with myself for not pursuing this dream nevertheless.

    6) Dog Pepinho, who just died.

    7) I am the one in my way – as it is true for everybody. We stand on our way.

    8) Choosing a decent broker to sell my flat. This actually has very practical consequence – we could get a worse deal if we choose a bad broker.

    9) No, ’cause I am not in Lund, I am in Uppsala. My gym card is a gym in Lund. I actually miss it.

    10) Erik.
