How I Skip the Gym with Bodyweight Training at Home

Published on in ✍️ Posts

I’m currently in my 9th week of my Runtastic Results training plan. It’s actually more than 9 weeks since I started, but that’s because my schedule was too busy sometimes and so some weeks took longer than planed. But believe it or not, it’s finally becoming fun.

News the minimalist way - Why I use Miniflux

Published on in ✍️ Posts
Updated on

Like two or three weeks ago, I was a little bored and thought about installing something new on my server again. Yes, I really like installing “things” (it’s actually just adding some lines of configuration to a file), especially when those things improve my life in some way. I installed Miniflux and using it really opened my eyes about the way I consume news. If you don’t want to host Miniflux yourself, like I do (which allows me to tweak the configuration), there’s also a very cheap hosted version for just some bucks a year.

I’m melting…

Published on in ✍️ Posts

So, here I am again. Back with no creativity, no ideas and no plan. I (including my brain) am melting due to the heat and the stress of the last weeks of studying somehow erased my brain. I have absolutely no idea what to write about, so I write about that and about what’s up in my life.

Getting rid of it - The start of my minimalism project

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Lately I got deep into the topic “minimalism”. I read a lot of online articles, started to read a book, watched some YouTube videos and even the Minimalism Documentary. I want to become a minimalist, get rid of most things I own and live a more meaningful life, which isn’t defined by my consumption. But hell, that isn’t easy.

Today I had no university. But that didn’t mean I had nothing to do. I had a lot to do. I had to learn so much for my exams next week!

When Unexpected Things Jumble Your Plans

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday, I tried updating my server. How stupid was I, thinking everything will work without problems. It didn’t work. That stole me two hours of sleep and around 1 hour of time I could have used for more important things.

It Only Takes A Moment To Decide

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday in the evening, it took me only one moment to decide, that I’ll get up early today, although I had no lessons and not really the need to get up that early. But there were some things I had to get done though and my experience (and the statistics on Todoist) showed me, that I get a lot more done when I get up early.

Health Is Such A Luxury Good

Published on in ✍️ Posts

When I’m traveling with the train, I often see many people smoking at the train station. I find that very disgusting! Why are people wasting their health like this?

I Did A Morning Run

Published on in ✍️ Posts

I was about writing a post complaining about failing with my new goals. But does complaining bring you any further in life? No! So I’m writing about my positive progress instead, because I did a morning run today and it feels sooo great… 😏
