Lots of things have been happening since my last blogpost.
I've been back from mexico for about a month, in that time I've gotten my eyes lasered.
They gave me a teddy to hold onto while getting them done in case I felt scared.
The procedure itself was ok, didn't hurt much. Took only a couple of mins total.
I ended up going with intralasik combined with Wavefront.
The results sofar are pretty good.
After the first day my vision in my left eye was at 90% and right eye at 60%.
After the first week my vision in my left eye was at 100% and right eye at 90%.
On may 1st I will have my month update but besides some dry eyes from time to time all seems to be good. I see about as good as I did with my glasses so that makes it worth it.
My vision wasn't that bad before the operation though so that might be why I'm not like: "omg this is amazing."
The other big news is that I've finally sold my house (not that happy about the price it had to be sold for but the market is so freaking terrible at the moment there is nothing to do about it. Especially since it doesn't look like it will go up any time soon). So that means that I will be moving out and finally be able to go travel without having to pay a mortgage every month that I'm away.
I'm packing up everything I own and throwing away all the shit I've accumulated over the last 8 years. It's insane how much stuff just 'is' in your house that you never look at or use. I came across some fun things as well, like my old school reports, lots of old pictures and more stuff like that! Ah to reminisce on those things.. But it's alot of work, especially to decide if you want to keep some stuff or just throw it away.
This weekend I'm going to be moving in with my dad where I will stay about a month. Hopefully the weather will be decent next month and we can ride our bikes to Paris. Last year we went to Berlin but didn't have the best weather.. I also need to lose a bunch of weight (more on that later) and hopefully biking 150km (100miles) a day will help with that!
Then at the beginning of June I'm going to the Philippines for about two months. I will be staying in Cebu in a pokerhouse with people I've never met before. But there are apparently 3 pokerhouses in the area and I talked a bunch with the guys who I'm going to be living with and it seems a decent crew to hang with! :-)
Hopefully do some stuff like diving/hiking/island exploring when I'm there!
After that I'm thinking about going to Italy for two months with another pokerplayer and explore the italian lifestyle, and also just enjoy the italy summer!
The plan is to go to Mexico again after that, just because the mexican winter is so so nice and I really enjoy spending time in La Paz. I vow to actually learn some spanish this time around.
Last year I managed to get a foot injury and couldn't play sports for about 8 months. Since I couldn't control my bad eating habits I gained a serious amount of weight again. At the start of this year I weighed 100kg (220 pound). I'm currently trying to get it down to 75kg (165 pound). I've managed to lose about 10kg (22 pound) sofar. Here are the current results and I guess I should smile in the pics, at least in the second one, since that's what I always see in the tv-ads...
So already a big improvement and I'm playing sports about 5 times a week now and trying to eat pretty healthy. Hopefully I can keep it up even while I'm traveling because usually I have trouble to continue to eat healthy when I'm in a foreign country and there is lots of temptation.
I guess that's all for now, I will try to keep my blog a bit more updated once I start to travel. Thanks for reading.
