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.

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.

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… 😏

Why I Like Playing With Technology

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Technology is awesome. Technology can simplify life, but it can also be fun. Playing with technology (doesn’t matter if it’s software or hardware) always fascinated people. And I’m one of them.

Physical Exhaustion Is Making Me More Productive

Published on in ✍️ Posts

While writing this post, I’m already very tired, but I just want to add another thing to the list with things I did today. Today was a quite productive day, although it were holidays and I didn’t need to go to university. I had the option to sleep as long as I wanted, but I didn’t sleep until noon to get things done.

Lack Of Motivation?

There are things I don’t like to do, but I have to. Due to that there’s a lack of motivation sometimes, I just don’t want to do it, but I have no other option. The worst kind of things I don’t like to do are the things I’m stuck at. When I just have no idea how to solve them.
