I was just mindlessly scrolling through Twitter, when I bumped into a tweet that inspired today’s blog post. I usually like to include the original tweet when I am inspired to write about it, but since this one is a poll, the editor in WordPress will not accept it. Messes up my entire post. Argh.Continue reading “Disclaimer: this review was written by a human being, and may include opinions, mistakes, and biases. Take it with a grain of salt.”

I’ll marry her… Again

I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while, but I kept postponing. Maybe because I feel so bloody stupid every time I think of it. It’s about time.

Admittedly, this was better than Zoom…

Today I taught my first ever in-person class to people, since having a teaching contract (about two years now).

On Sunday evenings, I already feel the nerves for starting up again on Monday… What if I fuck it allContinue reading “An anxiety-free Monday”

Green, yellow, orange, red, and a bit of grey

We didn’t really make plans for this weekend. So, this morning we were contemplating about what we would do today.

The same happened today, and in the end we decided to go to Landshut, aContinue reading “Green, yellow, orange, red, and a bit of grey”
