This post is sort of an update as to why I haven’t posted on this blog in quite a while. I haven’t exactly had anything entertaining going on in my life and in-fact my health has been the concerns that I’ve been having. I contracted a virus and I’m waiting for the effects of the virus to go away, however for now I’ll have to live with fatigue and boredom. I guess after coming back from Korea, I haven’t really recovered as it has made me more depressed about life, as I experienced something amazing and coming back to Taiwan, well, I just feel as bored as ever.

To pass the time I’ve been playing games such as PS2 (Planet Side 2) and that game has kept me pretty happy for a while, however PS2 has quickly become boring for me. While I should be studying, to which I haven’t, my Chinese has actually improved a little, even with minimal studying.

I guess I posted this as there are people going around saying that today is the end of the world. NASA has a quality article about this, and here is a small excerpt: (Link to the full article)

The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012 and linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 — hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012.

Quite ludicrous, but there are nut jobs out there that firmly believe this, I don’t understand how they can continue spouting out crap when they are proven wrong, time and time again.

Anyways, whatever the case, the world is not ending.

Going back to my life, I have thought about my future and have decided that I’ll be going back to the UK to study. I’ve had enough of my life in Taiwan, especially so with my family here. They are a complete nightmare, and I just need some time where I can get away; so to speak.

That’s it for now, I guess.

First run of 2020 – 5.89km
