Monthly Review

In this series I want to take a look back at each passed month. It is a kind of public diary.

Now May is over too. So here’s my little monthly review of the events, my experiences and happenings of the past month: First of all my birthday was on May 7th and I am now 21 years old, which I celebrated nicely. Birthdays were never really important to me, but this year I really enjoyed it. As you may notice while reading this article, I have reworked my blog and website design and have made it much more minimalistic.

My April '20 in Review

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.

How and Why do I write monthly reviews?

in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday I wrote my third monthly review and since I think it has become a habit by now, I will summarize here how and why I am doing this: On some blogs that I follow I see weekly so-called “Weekly Notes”. After I wrote my first annual review for 2019, I didn’t want to start with weekly reviews directly, but started with monthly reviews. And I think that was a good decision.

My March '20 in Review

March 2020 was the strangest month I have experienced in my almost 21 years. While in February I only noticed Corona slightly, today Corona determines the everyday life of most people worldwide. Corona is suddenly there as a danger that one could not even have dreamed of. Suddenly public life is completely at a standstill, only shops for essential goods are open, millions of people do home office and it is (in Germany) forbidden to meet more than one person in public.

My February '20 in Review

February was rather quiet in contrast to January. I had the practical phase and was working in the office accordingly. The main task was to find a possible topic for the bachelor thesis. I also found something, but now I have to look for a professor to supervise the topic and hear what he thinks of the idea. Apart from that I also did some work on my blog. For example, I added support for the ActivityPub protocol, so you can follow my blog (@en@jlelse.

Translations: Deutsch

In the 2019 year review, I have already announced that in the future I want to do a monthly review. I want to reflect on what I have experienced and learned in the past month, what has occupied me and also what I am going to do for the next month. Of course I will not be able to write everything on a public blog, but I will try to be as open as possible.
