A small life update: I’ve been quiet for the last few days. But that’s not because something bad happened to me. I am still alive and I have spent a lot of time with my partner, first preparing her oral exam and then celebrating her excellent results. Additionally I had to give a presentation myself. And as it seems, the summer heat is coming right on time after these tests. The last days it was already around 20 to 25 degrees.

I think I have never written so many emails during my entire studies as in the last few weeks. But hey, I like to write emails and I’m really glad that my studies are continuing despite Corona (and therefore without any attendance events). Especially the flexibility that I can schedule most things freely is really good. I have not yet quite decided how I will proceed after my studies, but the idea of correspondence courses (possibly alongside work) sounds quite tempting.

Back to study

in 💭 Thoughts

Tomorrow is the first day of the new semester with two lectures, one in the forenoon, one in the evening. I am really very curious how this semester will be and if everything will work out as I have planned. Although the practical phase was only very short (only 6 weeks), it will still be a change from going to the office at the same time every day and not having to do anything after work, to going to university at different times every day, sometimes even in the evening, and then to do tasks and study at home.

I try to find a workflow that works best on Windows. In Windows some things need to be done differently, but I think so far I’m ok with it and get used to it. Just a few days ago, I found out about Chocolatey.

Learning and Motivation

in ✍️ Posts

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. At the moment I struggle a lot again. Currently I have to learn for exams.
