I'm still learning Chinese in exchange for Guitar lessons. I've been expanding my areas of interest - learning from Chinese Wikipedia using the Perapera addon for Firefox. Tonight he is not here though: he is planning on watching the soccer championships with a couple of friends. Watching soccer does not really interest me.
This last Monday I took a trip to Stuttgart to meet face-to-face with my coworkers for the first time in many months. It was rather chaotic, but I managed to have two relatively important meetings. There are two new possible projects to do research for, as soon as I am done doing what I'm doing now.
There is a new Baha'i in our community. Curiously, instead of declaring in person, she sent her declaration card in and we were notified by eMail. We're all happy either way. :-)
I feel like I've been wasting too much time - reading reddit and playing online games, instead of improving myself. My guitar playing has been stagnating, except for playing Classical Gas, which is slowly improving. I feel like I could be learning Chinese faster.
That's pretty much it - a rather scatter-shot post. That's how I feel at the moment, too.
