No, not hobbits. Hobbies.
Without noticing I have aquired a new hobby, but as I didn’t know it was coming, I haven’t made room for it in my shedule.What hobby, you wonder? It is of course apartment hunting. I didn’t realise how much time it would take and that it was really like a new hobby. And as I don’t really have any free time slots in my life, something else will have to stop. The last week it has been exercising and I’m not happy about it.
As you might have noticed, my life is pretty packed and the last month has been the worst in a while. I think it is just because I started saying ‘yes’ again. If you have followed my blog for a while, you might know that I started saying ‘no’ two years ago when I was going into the final part of the work on my master thesis. I realised that to be able to actually get a good master, I needed to spend some time on it too…
And all the while when I was applying for jobs and didn’t know where I would live, I still didn’t say yes to anything. But after getting a job I have become a troop leader, said yes to two new years in Komité Speiding, have started working with the 50 year jubilee of the student scout cottage in Trondheim and have started working with the RoverNet 4.0. And I have also finally managed to excersise at least twice a week, which I have never done before. So you see, not really time for this apartement hunting hobby.
I really don’t know what to do. This doesn’t work. I hate telling people that I can’t be a part of a project after all (I don’t think I have ever done that) and I pride myself in keeping my promises. Especially when it comes to working in groups and being part of a team. But I have realised, during the last couple of months, that I have really enjoyed my life the last year. To have more than enough time for spontaneous visits, dinners and theater shows, that not every single day is planned. I think I have changed. I used to like all the activities, but not anymore. Maybe this is a new phase of my life.
But I think I have to drop out of something, because this is too much for me. I think it might be the troop leader position, because there is also trouble with one of the leaders all the time. It really drains me. Oh, well. I will have to think on it for a while. I’ll see what happens.
