A Month of High Productivity – Day 1

A Month of High Productivity – Day 1

The first day has been good. I achieved more than I expected, even managed to slack off a bit late in the afternoon. It wasn’t ideal of course, I slept late last night, and I didn’t sleep well.
So I woke up late, and had to skimp on my workout. Everything else went according to schedule except my language exchange where my partner didn’t show up. So I used Glossika to learn instead.

The three extra hours that I left for myself seem a bit much, maybe I’ll need it to relax later, but today, I absolutely didn’t need those extra 3 hours. I used that time to start my next reading instead.

The morning started with some chest workouts, and leg stretches.
For my language revision, I revised 200 Arabic sentences, and 100 German sentences on Glossika.com.


The book I read today, was called “Why the French Don’t Like Headscarves: Islam, the State, and Public Space”.

I didn’t read the whole book, because my aim was to learn how culture affects politics, and the decisions of political institutions. I skipped a lot of content because it had a lot of historical facts that were not relevant to my aim.
Since I had more time, I started reading Max Weber’s Politics as a Vocation, which I will finish tomorrow.
I finished the day with over 200 new Spanish sentences on Glossika.

I’m having a good feeling about this challenge, let’s see how this goes.
