I sometimes write articles. On this blog. On my German blog. Not long time ago, I used to write on Medium. I already spent hours and hours of writing.

For a few weeks now, I’m owner of a smart watch again. I used a smart watch some years ago (during the Android Wear 1.0 era), but stopped using it when my watch (the Sony SmartWatch 3) didn’t receive updates anymore and was almost useless since all apps where just optimized for the Wear OS.

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.

Learning and Motivation

When I wanted to create the file for todays blog post, my static blog system told me, there’s already a post with the same post slug. That wondered me and I thought it must be an error. But it wasn’t. I already wrote about “lack of motivation” more than a year ago. That just shows how much I struggle with motivation.

I’m melting…

Published on in ✍️ Posts

So, here I am again. Back with no creativity, no ideas and no plan. I (including my brain) am melting due to the heat and the stress of the last weeks of studying somehow erased my brain. I have absolutely no idea what to write about, so I write about that and about what’s up in my life.

Getting rid of it - The start of my minimalism project

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Lately I got deep into the topic “minimalism”. I read a lot of online articles, started to read a book, watched some YouTube videos and even the Minimalism Documentary. I want to become a minimalist, get rid of most things I own and live a more meaningful life, which isn’t defined by my consumption. But hell, that isn’t easy.

When Unexpected Things Jumble Your Plans

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday, I tried updating my server. How stupid was I, thinking everything will work without problems. It didn’t work. That stole me two hours of sleep and around 1 hour of time I could have used for more important things.

It Only Takes A Moment To Decide

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday in the evening, it took me only one moment to decide, that I’ll get up early today, although I had no lessons and not really the need to get up that early. But there were some things I had to get done though and my experience (and the statistics on Todoist) showed me, that I get a lot more done when I get up early.

Health Is Such A Luxury Good

Published on in ✍️ Posts

When I’m traveling with the train, I often see many people smoking at the train station. I find that very disgusting! Why are people wasting their health like this?

I Did A Morning Run

Published on in ✍️ Posts

I was about writing a post complaining about failing with my new goals. But does complaining bring you any further in life? No! So I’m writing about my positive progress instead, because I did a morning run today and it feels sooo great… 😏
