happy monday, week 3

Hellooo internet,

After a weekend spent mostly across the border in Malaysia - we went there to attend a farewell party for a friend at the Japanese bar/restaurant he has opened - I'm now back in Brunei, hoping for a productive week, free from jet lag. I finally started sleeping normally this weekend and I'm so grateful for that. 

Last week was deadline week, that is, my two fall semester courses finished on Friday, so for me today is the official start of the year. Which feels good! Today I begin a new online course - Graphic Design for Print. My second course for this semester doesn't begin until mid February, and I'm pretty sure this course will start nice and slow - they usually do - so I'm looking forward to a week where I can focus quite a lot on my own projects. I haven't been drawing a lot lately, outside of my illustration course and now I want to get back in to the habit of drawing for myself a little bit every day. I have a few meetings for my more official commitments as well, but that's all good since it means I'll have to leave the house and meet some people. 

Another thing that is happening this week, in true New Years spirit, is that me and Andreas will go to "crossfit foundations". This means going to the crossfit gym (or box as it is apparently called) and getting introductions in to all the exercises and movements you will face during a workout, basically to get permitted to join crossfit classes. We are going three nights this week and three nights next week and then we can start doing crossfit for real. I both look forward to this and very much don't look forward to it, at the same time.

This weekend will be mostly revolving around an event we are attending on Saturday night, something called Burns Supper, which is supposed to be a black tie event celebrating the writings of Scottish bard Robert Burns, if I have understood correctly. Might be fun!

I hope your week is starting of nice and calm, and that you have fun things on your schedule!
