Someday maybe or: what do You really want to do?
Berlin is a wonderful city to live in – you can choose between many concerts if you want to spend an evening listening to classic music. If you are interested in art, there is modern art and old art. Exhibitions usually open on Fridays, but there are so many openings now that they have added Thursday as a day for private view.
Berlin is a wonderful city to live in – you can have lakes and parks and rivers and forests (only with mountains it is a bit difficult, but there are some hills).
Berlin is a wonderful city to live in – if you want to practise your English just go the English friends’ club which meets every Tuesday. If you want to learn how to take better pictures or do something for your drawing practise there are the “Volkshochschulen” (community organised courses).
Berlin is a wonderful city to live in. Berlin is a terrible city to live in. You have so many possibilities that you may get overwhelmed. As someone who is interested in culture I find many interesting things to do, and then:
How often did I find myself sighing “Well, someday I like to go to that wonderful exhibition”. And then, half a year later, when the exhibition is over, I catch myself sighing again: “Oh I would have liked to go there.”
And then I decided to stop and think. What do I really want to do? What is important for me? How much time do I have and how do I want to spend it?
Now I consciously make decisions. I decide whether something at a certain time is important for me or not. I could go to a concert on Sunday afternoon in the Park, but I prefer meeting an old friend of mine. I could go to an exhibition, but I prefer sitting in a park and reading a book. Or the other way round. Just now I prefer writing this blog post to meeting people at the English friends’ club (they will be there half an hour later, too), because it is important for me.
How do you deal with the problem of wanting too many things at the same time?
