everyone will develop some form of mental disorder in the courses of their lives. EVERYONE. can’t believe that people needed to run a huge-scale research to prove that….

here is a little song:

wednesday. the last day of summer this winter

because the temperature will take a dip again starting tomorrow, not a huge dip though thankfully. i think i fixed my sleep. have been having very severe and groundless insomnia in the past two weeks. im ready to be human again. i ought to be studying. i OUGHT to.

that tiny icon beside every website you see? it could be used to track your movements online. crazy to think that i could use my awkward web logo to stalk. he he.

how to be angry. as someone who has been sabotaged by her own temper several times in life now, i find this insightful and perhaps helpful even.

i admit that im slightly still obsessed with the idea of death penalty and Aileen Wuornos’ life and read a former inmate’s (not her) account of what life is like on death row in the USA.

SKIMMED

50 “great” “classic” novels under 200 pages. i will have to come back to this list on one of these days…

Valentine’s Day. winter is finally ending (i hope)

my first exam is in five days. im writing 95% of the time with my right hand now and the thumb is still a nuisance but not as big as it used to be.

i didn’t know what bucatini pasta is, but now i wanna taste them too. and i want those from De Cecco.

all BREAKING NEWS we see are just results of feedback loops eh

it claims to be Valentine’s Day tips from astronauts. more like survival tips from people who have been in extreme conditions of isolation — for people in lockdowns like us

more tips on how to maintain a healthy mind in this pandemic. most are pretty straightforward things

Angelina — a film (?)/ documentary of an Italian granny. really like the cinematography

saturday night/sunday. it’s gonna be winter part 3 in Aachen…

so i haven’t got my laptop back and my right hand still feels weird and my thumb ain’t really working. the exam season is coming soon! oh and CNY!

READ

uhhh so Emily In Paris got a nomination. what the fuck. even their own writer is suprised. this is a dark moment for Hollywood

toilets of famous world leaders. really weird and random that i saw this article

someone who has more than 50 million euros in bitcoin refuses to reveal his password and thus no one has access to the money now. this is the cryptocurrency paradox

ive only recently heard of the name Scott Alexander while stumbling upon a website and my first post from him is his resuscitation. how interesting

wednesday. sunny. is winter taking a break in Aachen?

it would be pretty warm in the coming handful of days. “warm” in the winter sense as we were attacked by minus degrees last week but it might be up to double digit warm in a bit. ive been reading books and due to not having a laptop, been pretty lazy to post what ive consumed. i hope i get it back soon.

note: ive been reading Aileen Wuornos’ letters to her best friend and i must admit that some of my writing style might be temporarily influenced by her. Lee, i hope you don’t mind and yes, someone is even “stealing” your style. chuckle chuckle!

READ

“the Brazil variant”. fucking hell i thought there was another coronavirus mutation. clickbait. can’t believe it from The Atlantic

i finished How To: … by Randall Munroe. fun read. i read this and about Aileen Wuornos’ grim life interchangbly so i could sleep easier at night… America be fucking up my sleep for the past weeks with their unjust treatment/execution of women. ok exams are coming up, gotta buckle up

sunday. it’s getting dark and it’s not even 5pm

what a lazy weekend actually. probably very into holiday mood.

READ

just read an article about why the word “internet” isn’t really capitalised anymore. reads a little like linguistics philosophy at times (idk if that’s a thing)

the protein-folding problem. i didn’t know that Google does actual scientific research. cool

so it’s fine to leave the laptop on all the time

the common business-orientated language

blockchain is essentially a nuisance. also very sad to hear that this publication is going out of business though this was my first time reading it. the silver lining is that all published articles remain online.
