Distractions And How I Try To Avoid Them

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! But today I also noticed how hard it is to ignore distractions. Distractions are everywhere. A few examples: I want to write a simple mail to someone at the company, but I find another mail… I want to do some online exercises but while typing the URL into the address bar, my eye catches something in the auto completion list… A notification appears on my phone and instead of turning it off, I keep using it and eventually end up watching YouTube videos instead of learning.

What You Love To Do, Do With Pride

I love programming. I never hide this. I love running. I don’t hide this either. And I love writing creepy articles, this article is the prove that I even don’t hide this. I do all these three things with pride. I tell people about it, I share it on social media and I even write it in applications. Some people might think I’m a nerd. They are probably right. Some people might think I spent more time with my PC than with other people doing things like drinking, partying etc.
