I tend to go a bit overboard on pretty much anything I enjoy. This explains why I have four dance classes and two gym sessions a week. Last year, missing a class would've caused me acute bad conscience. I'd drag myself to class when injured «to see how it goes» and feel terrible if the … Continue reading Chilling Out
'Tis the season for New Year's resolutions and changing one's life radically right now – at least for another few days. I mostly set goals whenever they occur to me (if I'm not feeling too lazy) and my resolution depends on the device I'm using – right now it is 1920×1200 and 1920×1080 respectively, because … Continue reading Strength Training Update

I got frustrated with jazz, started looking for more modern classes and signed up for that gym membership together with my mom. I've read about strength … Continue reading All The Things Are Happening
