What a year.. I mean, a special year with respect to a few things in my life.. Starting from the end of 2009, I resigned from the job here in Stavanger, Norway and I accepted a completely new job in Hefei, China.. A 2 years contract in a Chinese company (I’ll be the only foreigner) with a Chinese salary in a very Chinese town, not a Beijing or a Shanghai, just to understand each other! I guess I did figure out something more about what I want to do in this life..
So let’s see what else I promised to accomplish:
Oh, I did get my nidan in Aikido!!! And it was a damn good graduation! No complaints! I also practiced during 2009 more than ever probably..
The weight is still a challenge.. the end of the year brought some good celebrations, with friends and family, in Italy and Norway.. and I am still struggling to go back!!!
About my nemesis-”past love”, no I did not forget her completely, but on the other hand, moving to China, I am going to put quite a bit of distance between us.. and the time has helped!! Few more baby steps and the goal will be reached!
..and what did I predicted?
Most of the predicted stuff.. the new ones at least, has been achieved..
Also about love and new broken hearts.. or better, no one got her (his? ) heart broken because of me but in my 2009 mingling (yes, I’ll post about it soon) I did manage to get a couple more scratches on my heart!!! I admit, I’m not good for “one night stands” or “one week stands”.. I always get too much into it.. As I admitted before, in some ways I did love all the girls I had something with.. spanning from few hours to few months.. but my heart is getting better in recovering time.. not harder, no.. just recovering faster!
