Work

I feel like this is my best year: all the hard work in the past years is finally paying off and I made a lot of progress. I am in a position now where I can focus more on things that interest me, like building tools for productivity and tracking, with a good balance of good old “roll up your sleeves and get sh*t done” tasks.

The industry is changing and there is a lot of new stuff to learn, for which I am very grateful as I like opportunities to grow.

Titles I am especially proud of

Personal

I built a digital garden which in turn has lead me to learn how to enable emoji support in Hugo, and to a better understanding of how tags and categories in a Hugo blog work. It is funny how Hugo is mostly a static blog platform, but I am actually using it for everything except blogs.

Our D&D campaign continues. I thought we would have killed Strahd by now, but we hit a major setback last Friday and we will need at least two more sessions to do it (or die trying). We are really hoping to end this campaign quickly given we might end up putting D&D on a hiatus again soon, as we don’t know if the new COVID-19 outbreaks will cause a new lockdown.

I really need to cultivate my health more: read more books, journal, meditate, exercise and eat well. I don’t seem to be able to get out of the routine I currently settled into, which involves sitting at a computer all day for work or generic “fiddle with random software tools” (at the weekends).
