Pinned toot

I'm enjoying living in a country where the culture is quite different to my own. It feels good to be learning and adapting all the time. I'm drawn to and try to practice every day. After years of work, I've returned to being a student and I'm attempting to learn a second language. I watch too many movies, and recently started to try and learn how to play . I'm a big fan of spicy Asian food, and I'm currently experimenting with intermittent .

Earlier this week I purchased a Fitbit, as the idea of being able to monitor my heart rate and sleep cycles interested me. Having this data has inspired me to make an effort with my cardio fitness, and also to try to go to bed earlier and give myself the chance of more sleep. I hit the treadmill last night for the first time in many years. The 20 minute run was a real shock to my system, and although I felt like my chest was about to burst, it was still a positive experience.

I currently have no musical ability, however I'm feeling inspired to try and learn how to play a musical instrument.

I now have myself a harmonica and I've spent a couple of days playing around with it. It's a lot of fun. I will stick at it and see what happens.

After forgetting about Mastodon for a couple of months, I logged back in to see what was going on...

Whilst several people that I followed have disappeared/gone quiet, I'm very pleased to see that most of the people I enjoy following are still active.

Although you don't know who you are, thank you to the people I follow, that brighten up my 'home feed' and make Mastodon a nice place for me to hang out 🙂

Worth bearing in mind; however, easier said than done.

Until recently I had never watched any episodes of star trek before; so I decided to watch a few to try and understand why it has such a loyal following. What better place to start than the beginning.... I'm now about a third of the way through season 1 of the originals, and I'm really enjoying it. The stories and characters are great. I can definitely see the appeal.

When I lived in the UK I disliked the cold winters. During those winters I often wished that I was somewhere else, somewhere warm and sunny. Fast forward to the present and I have now been living in Thailand for several years, where life is one long endless summer. It’s great here, however I’m now starting to miss the cold weather sometimes. The idea of wrapping up in warm clothes, and wandering outside to face a frosty morning, seems rather appealing right now.

I've been practicing intermittent fasting for about 6 weeks now. It's been a realIy positive experience. I feel healthier and I've lost weight. Who here in the fediverse is also an intermittent faster?

Some time ago, while I was walking through a park, I came across this pillar and found the engraved message to be quite thought provoking.
