Hello Netizens! I am still around, just a bit overwhelmed

But I want to get back to reasonable hours so I can work on personal stuff and study

@ice it feels really good to have full control of a device. :)
Off to sleep now!

Posting from my PinePhone through command line. But I am very sleepy, so I'll post more details tomorrow...

It is weird to realize that a good part of what people really need is other people to cheer them on.

But this is often exactly what people need, even the mighty.

If you are not a brutal critic to yourself, then you have achieved an unhealthy level of surety.

When you know someone that needs that boost... give it to them.

Be mighty for them.

Be kind.

There is no funnier activity than untangling xmas lights to put them away...

Hashtags can be difficult for blind people's screen readers, because the reading software may have trouble telling the words apart in the tag.

✅ You can make hashtags screen reader friendly by using "CamelCase", where each word in the tag begins with a capital letter.

For example, #DogsOfMastodon is fine but #dogsofmastodon may cause problems.

@ice I had heard of this book then forgot about it somehow. Thank you for suggesting it - I have put it in my wish-list for now (my birthday is in February).
I'll get it for myself if it doesn't come by then from a friend or relative.

@ice I am almost done transferring last year's notes, and I hadn't realised until now that I have reviewed them how useful journaling has been.
It definitely helps keeping"your eyes on the target" with short and long-term goals.
The concept of "You are the project" comes from a book on stoicism that contains daily meditations and exercises, called "The daily stoic" by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselmam. I highly recommend it.
I will definitely add it to the resources in my garden once I am done with transferring my notes.

I am glad I journaled consistently last year as it allowed me to put a lot of introspection into my next goals and in this note to myself garden.melyanna.net/notes/you-

Sorry but I do not have it in me to start 2021 with any optimism

Got my kakebo for 2021, in 2020 it really helped me with saving money.

@ice I admit I use the "smart" features a lot: since I commute (well, I did commute when lock-downs weren't a necessity), I basically use my phone as a computer substitute for reading emails, internet browsing and listening to music / watching videos.
