Attend a rock climbing course
I have always loved to climb on things, and I still do. Remembering those childhood summers, and knowing that a person my age climbing a tree in public, is not really considered socially acceptable, I figured this would be the mature thing to do.
I remember one time, me and my friend spotted a “Glacial erratic” -see I’m trying really hard to be mature :DD basically that’s just a huge rock- in the woods, and decided to climb on top of it. It was at least three meters (so about 10 ft) high, and very very slippery, but we managed to get on top with the help of a rope we knotted to a pine tree on the opposite side of the side we were going to climb. Our mother’s almost had heart attacks when they found out of course, but I had found a passion.
Learn an exotic language
Of course many would argue that Finnish is an exotic language, and I suppose for many it is, but it being my native language, I am certainly not going to settle for that.
Then there is of course the maybe too obvious fact that I also know English. And rather well too, I’d like to think, for someone not native I mean. But I think everyone agrees the words English and exotic have nothing more in common but the initial e vowel. So that won’t do either.
I also know a bit of Swedish. But that’s compulsory in Finland, and Imo one of the most useless languages there is, simply because it’s only spoken in Sweden and they all know English. So that’s a no too.
Then the last and I’d say the most unusual item in my language repertoire: Russian. It does tick the exotic box for quite a few people, but when I say exotic, I really mean exotic. Oh and almost forgot. I know a bit of sing language too. That’s kinda exotic? But I really love to talk so I need a language that’s spoken.
So what would I like to learn then, you ask? I do realise that I already know more languages than some people ever will. But what would really do the trick for me is something really out of the norm. Something like Bengali. Many people living here in Europe or in America probably haven’t even heard about the Bengali language. And I have never known anyone who spoke it, in fact I have never even heard someone knowing someone who spoke it. And yet it’s one of the most spoken languages in the world. Useful and definitely exotic.
So that’s two more things to the to do list for life ^^
A dream quote for today: “Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success.” <3
Keep your dreams growing and your goals groomed!
