• Healing

    Wounds become scars and scars become memories. Distant memories of the past me. Everything in life will pass, whether I like it or not. Good things will pass and I will miss them, and bad things will pass and I will remember them. Everything will change. Every change will leave a mark, a trace of […] read more

  • Vulnerability and sensitivity

    There was a time when I wanted to be somebody else. There was a time when I didn’t like who I was. There was a time when I thought I was lost. And I was. Maybe I still am, one can never be sure. That’s the whole idea of being lost, when we know we’re […] read more

  • Imperfect

    No one can be as hard on me as I am on myself. It has always been that way. As far back as I can remember I had high standards and expectations for myself. Maybe it started in my childhood, maybe a bit later, it doesn’t matter now. What matters is the fact, that I’m […] read more

  • Me. And the internet.

    Sometimes I feel bored. I’d like to scroll any timeline, just to spend time on something mindless. I can’t do that. There’s nothing I can scroll. I have left every social platform where I could potentially scroll anything. But this post isn’t about leaving social media, many words have been written and many stories have […] read more

  • Simplicity

    Every time I read about a new tool that promises to solve an existing problem, I start thinking about the problem itself. Every time I do, I come to the conclusion that the problem shouldn’t exist in the first place. We have robust filtering systems in email services to deal with unwanted emails. We build […] read more

  • Community

    Being a part of something bigger is a human trait. Once, we had our local communities. These were limited to people we knew personally and who probably lived nearby.

  • Anger

    We believed. Everything they said, we believed. Some of us for a brief moment, some of us still believe. They lied. They promised us the paradise lost. They promised us peace, they promised us love, they promised no one will ever be hungry, scared, homeless. They promised no one will ever be alone. Now we […] read more

  • Blogroll

  • Summaries, plans

    Everyone does a yearly summary, a lot of people do them publicly. I didn’t have a plan to do mine, I still have very mixed feelings about these posts with summaries and plans. 31 December or 1 January are the same days as the other 363 days of the year. But I’m going to do […] read more

  • Updates

    The end of the year is a time when I usually take a few days off and try to rest and regenerate. That’s the first factor why I’ll be less active here. The second is that I’ve got COVID. Also a year after the last time. I feel like shit and I’m also angry because […] read more

  • Gone

    What’s gone is gone. No matter how hard I try to change this fact, it’s gone. It’s not an easy thing to accept this and let it go. Some things are gone and one can do nothing about them. Gone are years of youth and innocence. The last few years have been brutal, personally, professionally, […] read more

  • Balance

    The joy is gone and the shadow has come. Everything suddenly lost its colour. Things that brought happiness became a burden. In an instant. Well, maybe it took a few days. But nothing has changed. Reality hasn’t changed. That’s the most overwhelming part of it. The shadow that covers the mind, while the mind still […] read more
