⚠️ This entry is already over one year old. It may no longer be up to date. Opinions may have changed.

April was somehow anything but exciting. Thanks to a contact ban it was now the first full month in home office.

Anyway, home studying worked out quite well for me. Getting up at a convenient time, on average one telephone conference or lecture a day, and using the rest of the time quite flexibly. The online lectures also work better than expected, especially when I compare mine with the experiences of other students.

Since I didn’t have to spend 1.5 hours a day almost every day to get to lectures, I had more time to go running (I feel I’m making real progress now) and to cook and bake (sweet dishes may not be the most balanced dishes, but hey I prepared them myself).

Apart from that, I also spent quite a bit of time blogging and programming. Some of my (English) articles caused more reactions than I expected. But I have to be careful not to write too much for others, but always make sure that I enjoy it. Regarding programming, I have now moved all my code projects to my own site. So I have more control and my code can be found under my own domain.

What can be mentioned as well is that by working at home I discovered some negative points in my setup and was able to fix them. So I bought my PC WiFi and Bluetooth, a new Bluetooth keyboard and mouse (the keyboard is really much more comfortable to write on than my previous keyboard) and I still don’t have a webcam (I’ll wait a little bit concerning the prices), but a USB microphone.

Stay healthy!
