I made a habit of disappearing from my blog project and that is peaty because I enjoy writing here (and it helps me a lot to focus on my plans and documenting our journey). So here are the last 3 months, explained.
After my back surgery in the middle of April, I was almost 2 months in recuperation. The first month was a bit bad, as for almost 3 weeks I just lie down without doing anything special ( I had access to my laptop and I should have used the time better – but I preferred to watch a series: thumbs-down:). I think in that time I wrote 2-3 articles and then I just disappeared.
Even in this period of recuperation, I focused more on building my EA robot, which is still not working, so it is gathering cobwebs on my GIT server, together with 4 more EAs that I started from scratch. The good part is that now I have enough experience to write this type of code, fix my initial robot and even start a freelancing business with this. This is not entirely wasted and I would consider it a plus.
I started to pick up my reading pace, after abandoning reading during the pandemic (I started to get bored of all the articles and people bragging how much they read during pandemics – I think you do not work in IT – our workload was Hell on Earth). I managed this with an app called Tusk – habit builder, where I have a small task list I created and cross them every day. It is pretty neat as sometimes I feel the pressure to do it and I try to check as many tasks a day I can. This is again a plus for me as I am almost over with a book that took me 1.5h to read (and it isn’t that big either).
I had a career project change at work, leaving a project that was so consuming for my mental health and took the toll on me, and getting back to working on what I enjoy. This is another big plus for me.
Another positive thing that happened is that my wife started working in IT ( I am so proud of her development and her ambition to change her working domain – I should tell her more). Also, this gave me more responsibilities: taking to and from kindergarten our daughter (she is so big now) and putting her to sleep for the afternoon nap. All this added some more hours to my schedule. But I do not complain about them, I love spending this time with her and I learn how to integrate them into my schedule.
And finally, I can and I am allowed to run again, checking that in my task list now :D.
Now a typical day for me looks like this:
- 07:00 – Waking up (06:00 when I go running)
- 07:30 – Start working
- 8:30 – 09:15 – Go to kindergarten
- 09:20 – 12:00 – Working
- 12:00 – 12:40 – Kindergarten
- 12:40 – 14:00: Lunch and Sleep activity
- 14:00 – 18:30 – Working.
- Every other activity I have to do is focused between 18:30 and 11:00 (goodbye 8h sleep period).
So this is for an update on my life, thanks to the ones still subscribed to this blog, love to chat with you all and wait for tomorrow’s Portfolio update for June 2021. Also, I think that I have to write 4 words more for a better SEO ratting.
