Holidays! — 2016-07-27

Holidays!

The whole school year everyone, teachers and student equally, are expecting them: The holidays. Everyone who has studied much, worked hard or has dealt with lots of things, requires some rest.

Since structure is of great help for me getting through the day, the week, the month … holidays often are a real challenge: No tasks, no work, no structure.

So I have to “work” at the beginning  of the holidays: I have to plan, to make the weeks well-structured.

This summer I took a small position and for this reason I have some appointments in the first week.

Since there is still a lot of mizmaze (?) in my life, I know that I have to change so many different things. I project the first two weeks to be my time to take small steps, change the things which are easy to change.

I don’t like changes, so I have to be very careful. I have learned (by lessons earned): I can’t change all at once!

Keeping that in mind the holiday time will provide me with some rest.

Get through your holidays hale and hearty!

Just imagine you are thirsty.

To be thirsty can be a fatal thing. Especially at sporting adventures when your drinking bottle is empty.

If someone has run out of water or his isotonic drink he or she is badly off.

That is why bicyclists on tour are well supplied by the organiser: On cycle tours ( maybe you call it bike trips, my English writing skills are … a catastrophy, well, at least I know how to emphasise catástrophy. That is something, isn’t it? ).

On such tours there are resupply stations (?) at regular intervals. Here sportspeople get some “niblets” ( in German we call it “Häppchen”, a small piece of food ), their bananas and – of course – water.

Otherwise we would “fall from the saddle” or keel over, as you might say? Continue reading
