Guess who’s back, back again… ;-)
First of all, I have to apologize for disappearing virtually overnight for a year. 2021 was the worst year of my life so far and set me back a lot in many ways. I didn’t have internet access, couldn’t travel, was basically locked up all the time…. It was disastrous. And it didn’t do my psyche any good either.
BUT: For the first time in my life, I had time to really think about myself, my life, my work and my future. And about my health. And when life gives you lemons…. I started exercising again, actually lost 20 kilos, started writing a novel, finished with a lot of things that were extremely stressful for me. And now, in 2022, I’m starting all over again.
Right now I’m selling my late father’s house, paying off a lot of debt, and looking for a new job. While I could go back to my old job, I’m not quite sure I want to. I’ll probably look for something easier and focus on writing for now. Enough money is still there, and if I live modestly, I can manage just fine. Old friends and some of my family still support me in this, and also out of conviction. And if that fails, I can always go back to my old job. ;-D
Well, before I bore you any further: I’m glad to be back online. I have missed a lot of things. The G5 Movie, for example. But I don’t care about that. 2021 could well have cost me my life in a moment or two. So I’m glad it didn’t come to that. I’d rather live a life with downsides than not be alive at all. Uh, that sounds much darker than it is meant to be…. What I mean: I’m just glad to be back. I have missed you and this forum very much during my absence. I hope we can get back to old times at some point. In any case, I will try to show my better side, even though I realize that I can be a pretty difficult person. Nevertheless, with time I hope to rebuild trust with the users here with whom I had cultivated friendly relations.
Liebe Grüße from Germany. :-)
Edit: And yes, my hair became longer and slowly gray. (grin)
