I had 'sonder'

Three days ago I was watching some YouTube videos, when suddenly a vivid realization manifested in my mind: every single human being on Earth is living a life as intense as mine, as complex as mine, and as strange as mine. We live a life so fast and intricated we barely have enough time to realize we are not alone in our travel - but surrounded by hundreds, thousands, millions, billions of people who can act, see, smell, touch, do things just like us....

I must keep going on

My family problems are not solved, and those deep troubles caused me to inevitably fail the exam I was planning to pass. The situation itself has been happening for months and is causing me anxiety disorders, mild depression and mental fatigue, while suffering by periodic nervous breakdowns, which summed up they costed me the remaining energy. I can barely stand this, with the help of my sweet girlfriend (I wholeheartedly say I could have never met a better person)....

The blog comes after everything else

Approaching Day 10 of #100DaystoOffload, I am forced to pause a bit my writing activity. I am currently focusing on an important exam, which involves analysis and design of complex Digital and Analog Circuits. Along with the exam, many family issues and complications arose today. For at least the subsequent 10 to 15 days I will not post anything. I will resume my activity after I will have taken the exam and solved my familiar problems....

How I use neovim for note-taking

In my previous post I have spoken about my note-taking system, which strives to be minimalistic, simple, funny and (hopefully) functional. To write on it, I use Neovim. Neovim is a reborn Vim editor which is fully compatible with its parent. This means all the guides for Neovim and Vim will be almost certainly compatible, as well as the hotkeys. This post will not cover Neovim basic hotkeys, nor will talk about how to build your own ....

My Note Taking in a Nutshell

I am an always-curious person, who can hardly focus on one thing at a time. When something does not inspire me or seems too tedious, I will struggle to work on it. This is why my personal note-taking system I ended up with has those simple requirements: has to be easy to implement; must require a little amount of time for organization of things, folders, and whatsoever - it has to be minimalistic and simple; has to be method-agnostic, should be ultimately flexible; and definitely has to be funny and stimulating....

The 10 things to do after installing Fedora, for real

If there is a single article category I cannot stand, it is that of “the 10 things to do after installing [INSERT DISTRO HERE]”. They are blatantly naive articles, that give the unexperienced user a lot of terrible suggestions. The user in question follows religiously those points, and then the distro is broken, often irreparably. For example, many Fedora guides suggest Fedy as a third-party installation manager. What could go possibly wrong with that, right?...

How I use newsboat to read my favourite blog posts

After I have completely removed all my social media accounts on centralized networks as Twitter, Reddit and Facebook, I have been digging into the indieweb[1] blog sphere. This not only allowed me to improve the quality of my time, focusing only on blogs and content that matters to me, but it also let me discover totally new points of view that I actually did not like at first, but made me reevaluate my ideas on politics, computer programming, system administration, and so on....
