I went to an eye doctor appointment this morning.I know the waiting was "just" a little bit long,and I was surprised that I could fall asleep while waiting for the doctor.
I have different goals at different time. From2010 to 2012, I tried to originate as many loansas possible. And last year, I tried to finisha marathon with reasonable speed. And did accomplishall of them in the past years. And this year, I would like to "tune" my body for the best level.
Read a few books about how to stay calm, even when the stock markets tumbling. It is not easy,and i will see how I can do.
I tried to improve my English for a long time,and found that I spent a lot of time to checkthe (online) dictionary. My social network is smallerbecause of my self-employment, and most of my friendsare runners and other long term friends. And I couldnot talk too much when I ran fast or maybe hard to expressthat clearly with broken English and fast speed of running.
I used to read a book from the Nobel prize winnerDaniel Kahneman: Thiking, Fast and Slow. And this weekend, I got a chinese translated version. It is so much easier to read. Maybe I can try to read theEnglish version after I finish the Chinese one?
I planned to read many books, it is the best way to know other people, other part of the world. But checking the dictionay is not the right way,maybe I can just "guess" most of the words? Even forChinese, we do not check the dictionary when wedon't know(or pretend we know).
