Sleep is definitely lacking at times :)

I set myself a goal to publish a quality post a week for a year, and while it's been incredibly rewarding I could do with some time to put into the Certification study. I'll be dropping back to once a fortnight after August to get this done by the end of the year. Hopefully.

That's awesome that you are committing to language studies and public speaking training as well. Sometimes I find it hard to narrow down what I want to learn about because it all looks so interesting. About a month ago I realised just how many articles, udemy courses, and videos on were on my to-do list. I've deleted or archived all of them to get rid of the mental pressure that I have all this work to do and no time to do it all.

yeah well... I moved from Milan (Italy) to Hamburg (Germany) 6 years ago and learning the language is a must - even though I work in a fully English speaking company (actually that is exactly the problem with learning German - I speak English at work, and Italian at home, so exposure to German is very limited) . I try to read and watch as much content as I can in German - not really "deliberate practice" so far.
Yep. Everythings looks so interesting. ( i wrote about it here). At some point, you have to choose and prioritise.
Keep up with it! :-)
