June Monthly Review

This month my stated goal was to memorise 30 new words each week. It did not quite work out that way, but I succeeded. I now know the Master Memory System words for all the numbers up to 130. At the beginning of the month I memorised more than 30 a week and by the end of the month, I memorised less. Last week I barely managed to review the cards that Anki scheduled for review.


My blogging went well. Total posts for June: 20 More than half were old posts that I had scheduled ahead. My scheduled posts will soon run out and then I will have to step up to have a post each Monday and a book review every Thursday.

I also came to the realisation that if I do not intend to make a career out of blogging right away that I want a matric and the option to go and study at university. To that result, I have been doing maths on Khanacademy, memory techniques and some physics. I am disappointed that I have forgotten so much work.

I found out that I feel alive on the trampoline at the gymnastics hall in an environment of other people also doing cool things with their bodies. I learned how to do a front flip on the trampoline. I am still very hesitant to do a backflip and have not attempted one recently. I don’t know how to do one yet for the simple reason of fear coupled with procrastination.

Parkour classes have stopped for the holidays and I will be in Johannesburg before they start again. I miss the companionship and the practice. I have also neglected my physio exercises with the result that my hips have gone out of alignment again. Part of the reason is that I did little movement when my best friend Kgomotso came over. We just lay around and watched a series and walked to the shops for ice-cream. I also started watching the series Limitless and continued with that until I finished it. Way too much sitting was done by me.

My goal that I will be measuring for the month of July is to daily do physio exercises. I make no minimum on the required amount, but every day I have to start. Preferably when my alarm goes off for it in order to condition myself that the alarm means exercise.

To happiness, and beyond!

  1. An alarm can easily be ignored, if you find yourself ignoring it try putting up a reminder on your wall but make it visible so it catches your eye when ever you enter the room. I do this when I set goals so when I procrastinate it guilt trips me into doing it.


Prove me wrong!
