I'm Akari, a 28-year-old female from Germany. Some of you know me already. I am not very consistant with my challenges but I havn't given up on it yet
In January I finished my apprenticeship and since March I have a new well payed job. I really like my new company. The people are really friendly and the best thing is that I can influence things. They have a new investor and this man wants to modernize the company. They offered me already to be responsible for the apprentices in the administration. I am really exiced about this task. But it has to wait after my babybreak. It was a shock for my new boss when I told him that I am pregnant. He is a straight forward man and he said he would have expexted me to tell this news already in the job interview. But I couln't do that. Someone else wouldn't have given me a job. Who wants a woman which stays 5 months and then takes a baby break?
There are some other news: I have ended the relationship with my boyfriend. I realized more and more that he is still half a teenager (He is two years younger than me) while I am a grown woman. I want to live my own life and make my own decisions. And I don't want a man to tell me what I have to do what I don't have to do. He didn't take the sudden break easy. For him his world crashed. And so he accused me of not behaving like an adult, insulted me and tried to make me feel bad. In reaction I blocked him on whatsapp. Unfortuatly I forgot about facebook since I don't use it very often. I tried to explain him why I blocked him after he accused me of beeing emotionaly so instable that I would be a thread to my child. He apologized and then he tried to manipulate me again. So I blocked him there too. I don't regret breaking with him but his behavior is emotional stress for me. I know I can't deny him his child but until it's born I won't talk to him anymore.
For now I just want to enjoy my single life and my new job.
I've started to learn French again by using Memrise and a new app called Fluent Forever. Fluent Forever is out of beta now but it's still work in progress. They have a 14 days pay free trial, if someone wants to try it out. I also try to lean Swedish and Japanese. I can't decide which language to learn first so I do all at once.
French: 15 words a day
Swedish and Japanese: 5 words a day
I can't do a diet with reduced kalories now. But I am currently eating for two which isn't a good idea. I want to focus more on what I eat and how much I eat. Planning ahead meals might be a really good idea to avoid overeating. Today I'll gonna make a plan what I am going to eat the rest of the week.
At work I sit the whole time. And at home I sit too either reading, learning or playing pc. My goal for this week is to go each day 20-30 min for a walk or to take the bike.
To create some accountability for myself I am using Habitica for the past two weeks. Works pretty well.
