Igår gjorde vi det fjärde och sista utedyket och fullbordade därmed vårt dykcertifikatsäventyr (se tidigare delar: 1, 2, 3 och 4)! Det sista dyket innehöll egentligen inga konstigheter och det enda som var nytt var kompassnavigering längs botten. Dyket handlade mycket om att befästa det vi redan kan och det kändes också som att vi gjorde det.

Vädret under utflykten var fenomenalt bra, drygt 25 grader i luften, 17 grader i yttemperatur och 11 grader nere på tio meter. Jag och min bror trampade ut till Malmslätt strax innan tolv för skjuts till Stora Lund (som ligger vid Vättern, söder om Omberg) och vi återkom, trötta och solbrända ungefär sju timmar senare. På den tiden hann vi också med att ha trevligt på land, bada på mer traditionellt vis och grilla.

Jag tacka våra instruktörer än en gång för att de gjort det möjligt för oss att uppleva det här utan att det kostar oss skjortan. De har också varit eminenta lärare och allting har varit så bra jag kan föreställa mig det. Tack!

Nu när vi är klara är det många som frågar vad jag ska ha certifikatet till. Svaret är att jag inte kommer att använda det till så mycket nu på en gång, eftersom jag inte har råd. Nästa gång jag är utomlands eller tillfälle visar sig, skulle det dock vara kul att dyka lite. Dock är det så att själva kursen med de upplevelser den innehöll utan problem motiverar mödan jag lagt ner på den, även om jag så aldrig skulle dyka mer i hela mitt liv (vilket jag finner högst osannolikt).

Nu har jag tjatat nog och det har blivit dags att lämna över till Rune och hans kamera:


Jag (till höger) och min bror (till vänster) flyter vid ytan efter en serie genomförda övningar.


Jag på botten. Notera att jag inte har satt fast den alternativa luftkällan ordentligt (den gula slangen).


Min bror hälsar, tillber Cthulu eller något.


Slut för idag. Jag på väg upp från vattnet. Det är betydligt lättare att komma i, tro mig.

Igår var det dags för tre av de fem utedyken som ingår i kursen. Platsen var Stora Lund söder om Omberg. Förhållandena när vi kom dit var exceptionellt bra med klarblå himmel, inte vidare stark vind och sjutton plusgrader i luften. Vattentemperaturen var nio grader och sikten uppskattades till sex meter. Under dessa förhållanden gjorde vi tre dyk om totalt ungefär 90 minuter.

På det hela taget var äventyret en mycket behagligare och roligare upplevelse än vad jag hade förväntat mig. Av någon anledning var tanken på att simma i kallt vatten lång tid speciellt lockande. Det här var egentligen aldrig ett problem. De första minuterna under vattnet var det kallt i ansiktet, men relativt snart domnade huden bort och resterande tiden tänkte jag inte ens på att vattnet var kallt. Istället hade vi fullt upp med att göra de övningar som krävdes och vänja oss vid att dyka utomhus (dittills hade vi ju bara dykt i bassäng).

Till gårdagens nackdel måste sägas att Vättern inte innehåller vidare mycket av intresse vad gäller marint liv. Det intressantaste vi såg, var en mycket liten abborre och en metkrok. Eftersom det var första gången jag var ute, var det för den sakens skull inte på något sätt ointressant. Minuterna flög förbi och varje dyk var roligt och spännande. Huruvida detta är något som håller i sig efter många dyk vet jag inte, men som det ser ut nu trivs jag bra med dykningen. Den sista delen av kursen är planerad till den tionde juni, då vi ska göra de sista utedyken. På återseende!

I torsdags skrev jag och min bror teoriprovet för att ta dykcertifikat. Vi förväntade oss inget svårt prov och mycket riktigt var det inga som helst problem. Jag hade två “fel” av femtio och i ena fallet hävdar jag att frågan är felformulerad och i det andra är det bland instruktörerna inte självklart om det som står som rätt faktiskt är rätt. I vilket fall som helst missade jag ingen fråga på grund av att jag inte kunde svaret eller inte kunde räkna ut det (det var en hel del uppgifter som handlade om att beräkna kvävehalter i blodet efter olika dyk).

Nu är vi nästan klara. Vi har utedyken kvar och dessa är schemalagda till två tillfällen, ett idag (lördag) och ett den 10:e juni. Vi kommer att dyka i Vättern (Hästholmen) och vi har kanske inte den varmaste av upplevelser framför oss. Dock ser jag fram emot att testa “på riktigt”. Räkna med en utförligare rapport inom kort. Det är en hel del annat på gång också, men det ämnar jag spara till ett senare tillfälle. Stay tuned…

I helgen avklarade vi samtliga bassängdyk som ingår i dykkursen jag och min bror påbörjat. Det hela var väldigt roligt, även om det är mycket att hålla reda på. Svårast är att lära känna utrustningen ordentligt, för många av övningarna man gör går ut på att till exempel ta av sig västen under vattnet och liknande. Det är svårt om man inte riktigt vet var alla spännen sitter. Utöver det fungerade allt jättebra och det var en härlig känsla att simma runt, även om det rörde sig om en liten bassäng. Jag ser verkligen fram emot utedyken, som kommer att genomföras om drygt två veckor. Istället för att pladdra på ska jag låta bilderna vi tog prata istället. Sist finns även en del undervattensbilder!


Min bror (till vänster) och jag (till höger) med torrdräkter. Det var ganska bökigt att få på sig dräkterna, men med lite hjälp gick det bra. Den första jag provade hade så liten hals att jag förmodligen hade svimmat efter någon minut. Den andra hade storlek 46-47 i skorna, men det fungerade bra i alla fall (jag har 43).


Eva-Marie, vår superinstruktör!


Även om jag kanske ser ut som en ninja i torrdräkten, känns den inte speciellt ninja. Det vore till exempel katastrofalt att försöka smyga sig på någon i den där skorna, plus att man skulle dö av värmeslag innan man ens tagit sig förbi vakthundarna.


Till höger kan ni beskåda vår andra superinstruktör, Rune! Jag vet inte vad jag spanar efter, men det kan ha varit flygfisk.


Jag och min bror redo att utmana djuphavets fasor. Det visade sig att det värsta kreaturet som varit i bassängen förmodligen var en plastkrokodil alternativt en pritanka, så vi oroade oss helt i onödan.


Plask.


Det är en del att hålla reda på, men så krångligt är det inte när man väl kommer igång. Allting är logiskt och använder man sunt förnuft och håller sig lugn är det bara härligt.


Att bara hänga fritt och sväva i vattnet är en av övningarna och också en av de härligaste delarna av dykningen i helgen.


Av någon anledning tyckte jag att det var kul att göra dessa övningar upp och ned. Om jag tryckte in lite luft i torrdräkten och hade benen uppåt, fick jag luft i stövlarna så att det var riktigt bekvämt att hänga som jag gör på bilden.


Lite trångt var det emellanåt, men också riktigt kul.

Nå, det var allt för den här gången. Nästa gång blir det dyk vid Hästholmen i Vättern. Jag vet inte om det blir några bra bilder därifrån, men jag hoppas att Rune har med sig kameran så att vi kan ta bilder under själva dyket då också. På återseende.

Igår tog jag och min bror det första steget mot att ta dykarcertifikat. Jag har hela tiden känt att det är något jag vill göra någon gång i livet och nu dök en möjlighet upp att göra det billigt och koncentrerat. Eftersom jag ändå får anses ha ganska gott om fritid mot slutet av terminen passar det också bra med mitt schema.

Under veckan som gått har jag läst teorin som består av en 250 sidor tjock bok. Den är dåligt skriven, väldigt amerikansk (fast den är översatt då), men fungerar ändå rätt bra. Igår gjorde vi teorin med en instruktör och det var trevligt och lärorikt. Det var inte speciellt svårt. Det vi har kvar nu är att göra teoriprovet, som sägs ligga på ungefär samma svårighetsgradsnivå som de småtest vi gjorde igår.

Nästa helg, och några tillfällen efter det, ska vi dyka, både i bassäng och i öppet vatten. Det är förstås det som ska bli mest intressant, även om vissa delar av teorin varit trevlig också (mest på grund av bra instruktörer som kunnat svara på frågor som ligger utanför materialet för kursen). Jag får återkomma med fler rapporter om hur det går, förmodligen nästa helg. Nu har vi i alla fall tagit det första steget.

Green Island

We left Taroko on Monday morning without much trouble, catching a train to Taidong and then a ferry to Green Island. Since then, we’ve had time to do quite a lot, but to begin with, I”ll limit my story to two things: scooter driving and scuba diving. First, it might seem incredible to some of you that I’ve never ridden a scooter, but such a vehicle is in Sweden generally associated with teenagers and not something I’ve ever had the need of learning (bicycling is fine). Driving motorised vehicles is always fun, mostly because that’s something I can never do legally in Sweden because of my poor eye sight. We used the scooters to go around the island, something easily done since it’s only 17 kilometres in circumference.


Welcome to Green Island. It’s not difficult to understand where the name came from.







Second, we did some scuba diving (two dives, to be more exact). These were my first dives outside a learning environment, but apart from the fact that I initially had some problems clearing the ears, it went smoothly. The water was about 25 degrees and losing the dry suits I know from my Swedish dives were not a loss at all, I can tell you. The coral reefs outside Green Island are perhaps not world famous for their plethora of aquatic life, but hovering over a sea floor like this felt almost like visiting another planet. I enjoyed these dives immensely and it was also a good idea to recapitulate some practical knowledge from last year’s course. I won’t hesitate before diving again here, if opportunity presents itself.

We stayed at a place called Jack’s Hotel, and the lodging was above the average for our vacation so far. Some interesting things were also included, such as scooters and vouchers for nice restaurants as well as the hot spring here on the island. The visit was somewhat disturbed by the fact that no ATM machines worked on the island, which meant we were short of cash. Fortunately, we could borrow money from the host, but it was still inconvenient to be reliant on other people for such things.

Wednesday, we spent mostly on exploring the island on scooter, alternated with short hikes or excursions where on foot was the only option. We followed the old trans-island path to the interior of Green Island, a hundred-minute walk including snakes, squirrels, butterflies and tropical plants. We also spent a fair amount of time climbing around on rocks facing the pacific ocean, with magnificent waves wasting tremendous power trying to crush the volcanic rock of the island.






This picture doesn’t say much, but it’s a nice picture anyway.


Furry squirrel! Spotted on the trans-island road.


Fishy, fishy, fishy. It’s a bit tricky to dissect this beast with chopsticks.


Sometimes it’s just easier to point.


Well, one has to do something while waiting for dinner.

Our stay on Green Island was nicely rounded up on Thursday by a visit to the salt water hot spring on the island, one of the few that exist in the world. It was nice, but nothing spectacular, perhaps partly because a glaring sun wasn’t what my already burnt skin wanted at that time. The journey back to Taiwan was pleasant enough, with even more clement weather that on the way out.

To sum things up, the stay on Green Island was worth the three nights. The lodging was good, we used a package from Green Island Adventures, and it was alright, except that the host is the kind of person one either loves or hates, and I think most of us fell into the second category. However, it should be noted that he probably never meant harm, and that perhaps circumstances poisoned my view of him somewhat (such as the problems concerning cash withdrawal mentioned above). On average, though, I can recommend this package.

We’re currently heading for Gaoxiong and I write this sitting on the train about halfway from Taidong. Somehow we managed to get three seats on this train without having reserved seats in advance (something our taxi driver said was almost impossible), and let’s hope that our good fortune continues for the next couple of days before we meet up with Vanessa either on Monday or Tuesday.

24 years survival

Today, I have the pleasure to announce that I have indeed survived in this world for 24 years. Like I did last time, I will try to tot up what has transpired during the year. This is not an evaluation or assessment, like my currently ongoing monthly reports, but rather a summary of what important events have taken place during the previous twelve months. I will try to mention things in an order of approximate personal importance, although I have of course omitted most of the things which occurred. I have also tried to group together similar events for increased readability.

Regrettably, there is an inevitable mix of articles in English and Swedish, but that cannot be helped. Next year, I presume that everything will be in English, this year being a transition from one language to another.

Personal
The single most important event of last year, the breaking up with Alva, meant that I have spent more time alone than I have ever done since before I was fifteen (I actually had to look back and count, but it is true). This has been hard and educational at the same time. With hindsight, I am absolutely convinced that it was a good thing that we broke up, especially since we are on excellent terms today. She is still, without any serious challenge, my closest and most high-valued friend, and I am indeed satisfied that things have worked out as nicely as they undoubtedly have.

However, the loneliness was unbearable at times, and sparked a wish to move someplace else where I would interact daily with other people. During the summer, my trip to Falun, although only a partial success, further highlighted the need for social interaction and personal flexibility, and a few months later, I moved to a student corridor close to the university. On the whole, I am now satisfied with my life, and I have had a lot of time and energy to invest in various areas. I think that I have learnt much from the previous year, even though it did not feel like that at times.

Physical
Perhaps most importantly, I have practiced diving on a regular basis for roughly one year (spring and autumn reports). It is by far the activity most suited to my personality I have yet encountered, and I still practice as much as I can and enjoy it immensely. It has also led me to another hobby, namely hand-balancing. More minor achievements on the physical front, include a scuba-diving certificate and having learnt much about nutrition and thus achieved more control over my diet, especially in recent months.

Education
Having had my eyes on Chinese for a long time, I finally found out that a one-year course is now available at the university, so naturally I applied (and was accepted). Studying a beginner language full-time is challenging and entertaining, but I enjoy it fully and will apply for one year of additional Chinese in Taiwan (article on the way).

Creative
Although I am still not satisfied with my creative output, I have managed to accomplish several things. My freelancing project Tornet mot stjärnorna is completed, which is much more important to me than it might seem. Furthermore, a joint project named Kaleidoskop has been launched to promote my and my friends’ creative output. This year, I have also taken a big step towards completing my own role-playing game, Magneter och mirakel, as well as done substantial progress on a game called Nostalgi, a project jointly written with Martin.

Literature
As usual, I do not only write, but also consume literature in various ways (audio books included), having read and reviewed roughly 60 books since February last year. I have come across four works of fiction that merits full grades, and one of them, Flowers for Algernon, is, without doubt, the one novel that has moved me most deeply. The other three are: The Master and Margarita by Michail Bulgakov, Pappan och havet by Tove Jansson and Catch 22 by Joseph Heller.

Online
Although Snigel.nu has not changed very much superficially, a restructuring of the website was performed during the summer, with the result of my beginning to write in English. The site has also migrated to a new server, which has kept downtime since September to an all-time low. I have also written several fairly serious articles about various subjects, including, but not limited to: Carcassonne, audio books, long novels, photographing, postponements and burdened minds. I have also withdrawn from the management of Rollspel.nu, a Swedish role-playing site. This has freed a hefty amount of time as well as cancelled a lot of negative energy.

Conclusion
Another year has passed, and, looking back, I seem to have been able to occupy myself adequately. The coming year is somewhat uncertain, but I hope that it will in some way include more radical changes, including temporarily moving abroad to study (if not to Taiwan, then to England). I have no idea what my personal life will be like, but I look forward with confidence and optimism. All that remains doing now is to congratulate myself on my 24th birthday.

…and there was much rejoicing.

Note: This is my old 101-in-1001 list that was started in 2005. I launched another one in 2010, so the old list has been moved to this post to make room for the new one. I finished about three fourths of this list and some of the things I accomplished I’m still proud of today. A handful of unfinished tasks on this list also made their way to the new list.

Click here to go to the new 101-in-1001 list launched in September 2010!

The 101-in-1001 list

This project was started by Triplux and I came to know about it via Kendoka.se and Yasylum. At first I thought it was rather silly, but I soonI started compiling my own list. For various reasons, this project was put on ice at the end of 2008 and its fate is as yet undetermined, even though it seems likely I will eventually complete, if not all, then most tasks on the list.

The mission

Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days. My mission will end on New Year’s Eve 2008. The tasks should me as unambiguous as possible, although I have diverted from this in some cases where it is utterly impossible to assess a clear goal. 1001 days is long enough to accomplish some of the more demanding tasks on the list and 101 tasks seems to be about as many good ideas as I can come up with. My intention is to give each task a solid try and I my goal is to complete all of them, make no mistake about that.

I also intend update the list and write about the projects (a list of published articles can be found here). By doing this, I put pressure on my self but I also hope that I can inspire other people to do things they want to.
