I'm back, still moving forward

I've been in denial for weeks, but it's time for me to admit that summer IS over. I had a pretty good summer. I got all the relax time I needed. I read a lot (Coelho's Veronika Decides to Die is an amazing novel! Can't wait to see the upcoming film starring Sarah Michelle Gellar!). I hung out with friends. And I've accomplished quite a few of the tasks on my to-do list.

Not to mention that I solved one of the greatest dilemmas of my life, buying a X360 over a PS3. Xbox 360 is a wonderful machine if you wish to enjoy some mindless playing. It's not excessively expensive, you've got a wide range of games to choose from, neat graphics... I'm almost finished with Lost Odyssey, and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Dead Rising.

I also started practicing Krav Maga, the hand-to-hand combat system of the Israel Defense Force. Everyone, from police officers to housewives, from assassins to nuns, should give it a try. It is easy to learn and in just a few weeks you'll know how to kill a person with your bare hands! No rules, no mercy in Krav Maga.

Last but not least, I got accepted into a permanent workshop with one of most renowned Method acting teachers in my country. I can't even begin to explain how excited I feel about this.

Now, everything would be pretty much perfect, if it wasn't for damn uni. You see, I've always wanted to learn Hebrew. It would have been the one class that I would have willingly and joyfully attended. Unfortunately the academic council decided to kill the Hebrew course for the next 3 years! So at the moment my only chance seems to be learning the language by my own. Lol!
