On pressure and chopping wood

So there I was last night, having spend around 2 hours on this post, and firefox crashes on me. I was screaming obscenities. What happened to autosave!?! Here comes a new, probably shorter and rushed version. On the bright side, you're also getting one more days worth of experiences.

I feel I've been gaping over more than I can swallow recently, with regards to this trip. I've felt stressed out - mainly because I'm afraid my apartment won't be sold in time. So, I thought, let's find sponsors! Many sponsors! Big sponsors!!! Why not do a tv-show!?!
In 2½ months? Wow, pressure! Too much I've realized. Perfection is an ugly thing.
I'm going to pursue sponsors, but if I don't get any, that won't bring me down. I have a few ideas that might really turn into something, but I'm not ready to talk too much about them just yet. That would be too much pressure!
Don't get me wrong however, if someone wants to do a tv-show with me, I'd be more than happy to!

It's been a great couple of weeks though. I took last week off, and Hedda was here from Thursday to Monday, which was amazing. We went to the aquarium, the zoo, the planetarium/IMAX cinema, and of course, spent a lot of time alone together. We have, however, decided not to see each other again as lovers, as none of us feel fulfilled by a long-distance relationship. Great girl though, it'll be a lucky guy who ends up with her!

On sunday, my bag got stolen. I was horrified since it had everything: my new digital camera, climbing shoes, two books, 500DKR in cash, clothes for 4 days, deoderants, and shaver. Fortunately, it didn't contain anything that couldn't be replaced, and fortunately, my insurance covers everything.

At work today we had a lecture by Torben Wiese which was a great experience. The subject was "break the habits". He was very inspiring and very entertaining to boot. In the end I split a board of wood with my palm in front of everyone! I've been feeling like He-Man ever since...

Later this afternoon, I'm visiting a friend to help him take out the battery from his motorcycle. I asked him if I could look at the bike as if it was for sale and I was interested in buying it, and he got very excited. He's only had it for half a year, so this is a great way for him to learn about it too. I printed this guide and I'll be taking it with me.

I have a lot to look forward to these next couple of days. Tomorrow I'm climbing, and Saturday me and my friends are having a Boys Night Out (tm). We start off with a movie (Max Payne, rotten reviews, but it has guns!), then an all-you-can-eat-and-drink buffet, and then we hit the town. My goal for the evening is to shout more.

Ooh! And yesterday I had my international drivers license made out. Yay!

As I logged on to my Google Analytics page, I was very excited to find that people are reading my blog! People I don't know! This guy , for example! This thrills me tremendously...

I've been looking around for blogs about travelling, and travelling by motorbike especially. So far I've found two good ones: Ride Far by Mark Hammond - a guy who's currently riding through Africa - and Introducing Fylix by a girl with no name apparently. She named her bike though...

If you know of any other good stuff out there, please let me know!

PS: I've promised you pictures and videos. My computer's been out cold for months, and I'm writing from a crappy god-knows-how-old laptop (which is probably the reason for aforementioned browser crash), so I won't be able to put them up until my brother trusts me with his PC. Not today though, he's in his room with a girl with his door locked. Apparently my new hair wasn't interesting enough to let me in.
