While writing this post, I’m already very tired, but I just want to add another thing to the list with things I did today. Today was a quite productive day, although it were holidays and I didn’t need to go to university. I had the option to sleep as long as I wanted, but I didn’t sleep until noon to get things done. One negative aspect of studying compared to working is, that you need to do things at home very often.
I recently got a new (refurbished) notebook and already wrote a post about that, but this time, I would like to focus on my software setup. What programs do I use for developing? What do I use for writing? And what is my favorite web browser? But first let’s start with the Operating System: Operating System: Solus I love Linux and I’m already on the Linux site for a few years.
Yesterday I told you, that I currently somehow struggle with procrastination and not being able to get myself finishing the tasks from my to-do list. So today I used an app again, that I last time used while preparing for my final exams in school. It’s name is Forest and you can plant trees. Why should I plant trees? Well, the trees will die if you use your phone, before they finished growing.
Things aren’t going well currently. My procrastination is my top activity and the list with tasks to do is growing each day. My room is a mess and I’m using my phone more than I should. But what’s wrong? Why is my motivation kidding me? Why can’t I get myself to do something productive? Like writing an article or writing a few lines of code? But instead I somehow end up watching YouTube videos, scrolling through my Twitter feed and browsing the web.
When you’re on the go quite often (at university during the week or with the family during the weekends), it’s actually quite difficult to use the spare time you have for writing blog posts instead of fixing bugs or coding new features for your favorite project. That’s why I recently built the habit of writing most of my posts on the go. But how? For my cheap Amazon Fire 7 Tablet I bought a case with a Bluetooth keyboard, which I can also take out of the case and connect it with my smartphone.
