I set a goal for this summer, actually I set a goal for my life. My goal is to write a book, I figured starting a blog to work on my writing skills would be a great start. So I decided to start one…but I had no clue what to write about. Would I write about the book/s I want to write? The books I’ve read? Maybe not even write about books at all. The thing is I used to hate reading…I got through the university only buying one book (whitch I opened once). But now I kinda enjoy reading. It’s been 9 years since I started studying and 3 years since I graduated, and I’ve read more books this year than I’ve read in my entire life and there’s still more to be read. I hope reading and writing will somehow help me improve myself on an intellectual level.
So anyhow, writing a book isn’t my only goal in life. I’ve also had running a marathon on my list which I finished only 9 days ago in Stockholm. That was just the beginning though, I wanted to start a more active life and for that I needed a goal. The marathon was only the first milestone on the path and worked as a goal for me to keep on going for runs. Now I need a new goal, which I’ve already set to be to complete a triathlon. So this summer I’m going to start working on my swimming and biking skills, which I hope will also help me improve myself on a physical level.
While all the reading, writing and riding along tend to make a man hungry, my third goal for this summer is food. I’ve always had a life long dream about having my own restaurant where I could spend my retirement days sipping great wine and telling stories that nobody really knows are true or not. To this day I’ve worked as a bartender and waiter at several places around Turku and it’s archipelago, and I like what I do. This has triggered an intrest for food and drinks and I’m curious of new products and experiencing new things. So last autumn, driving my car thinking about my new goals for the summer to come, I went past a snackbar that I’ve driven past thousands of times but never entered I wondered if I knew anyone who had? It’s a place that everyone knows but very few have experienced. This was when it hit me to bike there and blog about it. So the third goal for this summer is to bike to different snackbars around Turku and blog about them. Food is the way to a mans heart so I hope this will help me improve myself on a spiritual level.
So this is the blog:
“A mind-blowing, body-shaking and soul-shaping bike ride in a mans life”
Take care & stay tuned
