Sunday Column (162)

Happy Easter!

A short week before Easter and a short week after Easter makes life quite pleasant. Four days with the family. On Friday and on Sunday we had friends to visit, went out for nice lunches, and just chilled, catching up on what’s happening in each other’s life. It is unbelievable to think that we haven’t caught up in person with one of our friends since Easter last year. Life is just too busy, isn’t it?

Jen and I started watching “Game of Thrones” and decided to buy the boxset. It is fantastic! We got hooked and managed to watch most of the 10 hours over Easter 🙂

Another friend of mine just started a trip around South America by himself. I admire people who are able to do that. I couldn’t do that. I am a person that needs a reason to go out of the house as otherwise I could just sit on the couch all day. Similar is true for playing with the kids. I could happily just sit here, watching TV with them and getting lazy. We built up our treadmill, so things will change. Jen has been active already and I will start soon-ish….

What I still find very fascinating is my work in the digital industry. I have only spend the last three years in digital media (as I don’t count search marketing as part of it), and just realised how many of my mates are from the industry by now. I know he is reading my blog, but last week I went out with a client but it is less a “client relationship” as you would have it in other “traditional industries”. It is more of a friendship in the same industry, exchanging views on products, innovations and developments. I really think those relationships are unique to digital media. And this is just one of many.

Life is great at the moment. I have a steep learning curve at work. Maybe that is why I am so tired at the moment. A lot of challenges. But although I managed to catch up with some sleep over Easter, I still seem drained.

Time to get to grips with things, re-start an exercise routine, looking forward to the house move in June (though very late 🙁 ) and get on with things. I bet the sun, the warmer and longer days as well as a youngster that hopefully starts sleeping through until at least 6 am will help me getting a kick-start….

Eventually things will sort itself out.

Be well,
Volker
