saturday. slightly sunny.

Germany might be on lockdown soon…so we sorta had our last meetup before it will be illegal to do that. some people might say that we’re irresponsible and that we should’ve taken social distancing more seriously. but in our only (albeit rather weak) defense, we have been almost solely hanging out with each other and were at my place, and no one took any public transport and let alone ran into another soul. (other than at supermarkets, but don’t we all?) it’s a gray area isn’t it?

wrote some letters to send cos Angela Merkel encouraged that (she also said we shouldn’t physically meet; it’s true that people only hear what they want to hear). and so i ran out of envelopes and stamps so i was delighted to find out that we can buy and print stamps online! and i folded the letter into an envelope thing so it didn’t need an envelope too! wow i feel so eco-friendly!

why COVID-19 is worse than the flu. hmmhmm

someone who finished the freeCodeCamp’s certifications in a month who also makes YouTube coding tutorials. ive never watched a video coding tutorial…still quite skeptical (i always read) but well, i think i should give it a go soon. since i’ll be stuck home for a while with my computer

WATCHED

i’ve been watching Ted-Ed Riddles and i finished season 1 today. i can proudly say that i solved most of it (two with my genius friend)

Crashing on Netflix. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius. watched Fleabag and Killing Eve and so happy to see her art on Netflix.

CURRENTLY READING

these would be books (and sometimes perhaps very long form texts) and maybe this would keep me more accountable to finish them hahahaha. this is a little embarrassing and you can see how hard is it for me to just. focus. on. one. thing.

Sunday. Aachen. it’s rainy again but it was quite sunny a few days ago

the Christmas break started and i was in my room for more than 40 hours and i thought today was still Saturday. silly me. started watching Halt And Catch Fire with class genius and made a lot of pancakes and cooked noodles too. my new place is cosy. feeling slightly under pressure because there are a lot to be done this holiday season. wish me luck. but somehow im still reading random things rather than doing productive work. smh.

READ

someone found some female remains at a supposedly male-only Geek mountain. what kind of stupid rule is that. people used to be so weird and dumb

the strange life and death of a genius programmer. stumbled upon a few articles about blockchain technology recently but was too tired or energyless to document it here but here is one.

here is another one about a cryptocurrency scam thing where the founder of the company allegedly faked his own death.

and now people want to exhume his body. hmmmmmmmmmm
