This year is coming to an end and so I want to take the chance to review the year and write down what happened this year. On the technical side as well as personally.

Influence

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I’ve been noticing this more and more lately. Often, when I blog about something, like yesterday about a software I discovered, there are actually people who take a closer look at the thing I blogged about, in the case of the software even install it and try it out.

The new semester in university started again and I’m using Windows for university things now. Yes, excuse me, I said Windows. I’m using it on my new Microsoft Surface Go.

What I Learned from my Running Mistakes

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yes, this is the first post for a long time about running. I became quite about this topic, but now I try to slowly get back into this activity. In 2017 I was a running freak. I ran every day for a whole month and also preached about running a lot. Everybody should try it and do morning runs, was my mantra back then. The YouTubers I watched and podcasters I listened, as well as writers whose stories I read (all about motivation, self improvement, success etc.), had a huge impact on me.

I’m currently with my family on vacations and we have rented a holiday flat. The description of the flat includes “Free WiFi”, so I would assume there is a functioning WiFi. It may not be fast, but it should be working.

As you might have noticed, the frequency of new entries on this blog, or even the activity on my social media profiles, varies a lot. On some days I’m posting a lot. But then there are days with almost no activity at all.

My new PC: ASRock DeskMini A300 + AMD Ryzen + Fedora Silverblue

Published on in ✍️ Posts

It’s the first time I actually bought a brand new PC, or better say parts for a new PC. I had to assemble them myself. Until now I only had PCs or laptops with a maximum of 8 GB RAM and no fast CPU. All devices where also refurbished or second hand devices, because I didn’t want to spend so much money on new hardware. And I couldn’t upgrade them more because they were already maxed out.

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.
