Life and Times of a German Blogger Part 2


Reports of my unfortunate demise are highly exaggerated. Aside from being pretty tired all the time I am actually quite fine. On Monday I returned to the office after being signed off work for about half a year. For the first two weeks I’ll work only 4 hours a day, but it’s still pretty tiring. I am not used to getting up early anymore and even those four hours feel like an eternity. Getting back into work is definitely more taxing than I anticipated. Luckily  my coworkers have and even my superiors are pretty supportive, so hopefully I’ll get back into the routine in no time.

After work I join my mother when she walks her dogs. My physician actually recommended I should start nordic walking or a similar sports, but for the moment going for extended walks is a good start. For a while I was actually thinking about getting a dog for myself, but I guess my cat would not really like the idea. I have to admit that my endurance is pretty bad at the moment, that’s why I feel pretty exhausted and tired in the evenings. This is also the reason why I haven’t been writing much recently. I also noticed that the university I’m working for is offering archery courses for students and employees. If they still offer these next semester, I might actually sign up.

Last weekend I finished running “The Beale of Boregal” for my Numenera group. Alas I hadn’t prepared any further adventures since I didn’t expect the group to finish the adventure that fast. But we used the remaining evening to talk about gaming in general and Numenera in particular. I think I will try to slowly turn the campaign into a sandbox game. I feel that Numenera should support this style pretty well. I am still glad I decided to give this game a try. The setting is just awesome – you can basically do whatever comes to mind – and the rules are extremely easy to learn and use. I even overcame my hesitance to use GM intrusions.

By the way, Verena and I went to the movies recently. We went to see “Guardians of the Galaxy” which a local cinema showed  in its original (non-dubbed) version. I have to admit I haven’t read any Guardians comics before but from the teasers and trailers I was pretty sure we would enjoy the movie. And indeed, we both had a blast. The movie was exciting, funny, and the 3D effects were pretty decent. If you haven’t watched it yet, you definitely should do so.

I think this will be the last update on my personal life for a while. Next time we’ll get back to our regular program. Zwinkerndes Smiley

  1. Good luck Michael and keep on going. I’ve started voluntary work this month after being unemployed since January. I’m also finding it difficult getting used to that sort of routine again but it will come. 🙂
