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

Now March is over as well, so it’s time to take a look at what was going on in March for me.

For over a month now, I’ve also been using my blog software to write down a few quick notes about the day once a day in the evening before I go to sleep: What I did, what I thought about, how I feel or other notes. This works pretty well and I’ve already developed a real routine. Not once have I forgotten to do it.

But this month was really not varied at all. Actually, there was only exactly one topic that really kept me busy: My bachelor thesis. First I finished writing it, then I improved it, printed it out, handed it in and finally I created my colloquium presentation, practiced it, improved it and finally held it on March 30. Very successfully, in fact, which makes me feel appropriately relieved! I wrote more about this in a post (🇩🇪) the other day.

Besides the bachelor thesis, I regularly went for a walk in the park and did some development work on my blog software. Bug fixes and improvements of all kinds, a tiny bit of documentation, and native Tor integration so that my sites can also be deployed directly as Onion Services. There’s probably no real benefit to that, but I learned a few new things and got to grips with a topic I’d only covered very superficially before.

I also got a bit upset about Corona and the failure in politics, but actually you can only resign yourself and somehow try to make the best out of it, like you did for a year already. It makes no sense to get in a bad mood, the situation will not get any better that way.

Over Easter I’m going to take a break from studying and working before I start my new job. April will probably be more exciting again.
