What I'm Doing Now

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)

Life

I'm just back from vacation in Turkey. Trying to get used to my city life with work. During vacation, I broke my no-sugar diet a bit but not too much. I just took some bites from the deserts I miss so much.

I will be back this week at Kajak Club Albatros 1926 e.V. to do some kayaking and dragon-boating.

I'm back to my no-refined-sugar life. I really like it!

I gained ONLY ONE KILO while on vacation. When I compare my previous holiday-weights, this is nothing! I'm on my way to losing that one too again.

Writing Daily

For the last two year, I try to write every day, for a minimum of twenty-to-thirty minutes. I publish these writings on this blog.

I partially ditched pen and paper. I still keep them to take notes while I'm reading.

I still write my newsletter and some blog articles on reMarkable2.

I transfer all these texts to Obsidian. Obsidian acts like my archive. I use Zettelkasten combined with some little parts of the P.A.R.A. method.

When I use pen and paper, my favorite pen is Uni-ball Signo 207 blue, and my favorite notebooks are Moleskine Classic Softcover Black A4 and Leitz Hardcover Pocket Notebook A6.

Work

I decided to leave my current job at Jimdo and resigned from my role right after I switched to Mobile Tech Lead role from Engineering Management.

I will soon announce my next journey!

Exercising

I started kayaking and doing core exercises at home. These days, I'm thinking to go to gym. There is one nearby our apartment. Let's see.

Podcasting

While I tried to start a new season with two new episodes and planned for 10 more episodes, I paused it because we were moving to Berlin. These days, I'm thinking that podcasting will be my winter-time activity. I would love to go out during summer to enjoy the good weather as much as I can. That means podcasting won't be a thing for me during summer.

Reading

For the last couple of years, I started cross-reading—reading multiple books simultaneously. It takes longer to finish a book, but I don't care how many I read in a year; I care about the value I get from them.

Currently, I'm also reading Designing Data-Intensive Applications (and sharing my notes from each chapter), Team Topologies, and Thanks for The Feedback.

I finished The Wise Man's Fear recently. I loved it!

Family Time

I spend time with my wife, whom I love and who is empathetic, beautiful, intelligent, sensual, and loving—a fantastic human being.
