If you haven't done so, you should also check out his podcast where he discusses its weekly articles : http://exponent.fm/

I like listening to it while commuting.

I'm like you regarding my purchases, but thinking about what will hold 'for life' is extremely hard.

Before reading about your last purchase, 'My bag!' popped up in my head. Osprey Farpoint 40. It's been 4 years and it is still holding great through many travel adventures, be it accross the USA, Iceland, or South-East Asia. It's the perfect size (cabin size) for travelling, and can hold everything I need for 1 week, 1 month, or even 6 months (I pack that lightly, yes!) and it's incredibly robust. I don't think I will have any problem keeping it another 10 years.

Besides that, I can't really think of anything. My phone usually last 4 years (currently Galaxy S7, still working perfectly fine after two years), my computer is starting to have a hard time (5 years, Sony Vaio, will probably buy a Dell XPS in the next year), but these are not buy-it-for-life item.

I missed that one! Thanks.

I already drank a little bit before going to the start of the race, the problem was not being able to drink any energy drink for 13K when you expect being able to

I will do another one down the road, but I really don't know when. I believe that breaking the 4h mark is possible if I follow and execute a good training program (even if I'm miles away right now).

I wanted to do Paris' Marathon, but it costs more than 100€, so... I will have to convince my company to do a team and pay for it next year!

I should probably write something about my Marathon experience, that was a fun watch.

I don't remember exactly how I stumbled accross Hubski, probably a link in a reddit post. That was 1419 days ago, so almost 4 years. I don't post often, but I check the community almost daily, except on holidays. Why ?

- Great content discovery, and thoughtful comments and discussions. I love to be able to read about the opinions and thoughts of a diverse crowd. It lets you go past your filter bubble in a way;

- There is almost always someone to tell me why I'm wrong on something, and they are very often right (I'm especially thinking about kleinbl00 here, thanks for pushing back the dark!);

- The fact that everybody speaks english is amazing. It trains me everyday to read and understand another language. You know that language-learning in French is a bit lagging behind Europe. I would not consider myself bilingual because I still have a french accent, but I can talk about cryptocurrencies, technology and economics in english in a day-to-day conversation, and part of that reason is Hubski;

- The feeling of the community is loving, welcoming, and pushing you to be the better version of yourself. It's kind of like everybody believes in everybody, so we each push ourselves up in a not-cheesy-kind-of-way if that makes sense;

- I will always remember meeting wasoxygen and arguewithatree on a week-end trip to DC when I was in the US. Incredible hospitality and amazing people.

I would have probably killed her if I was the one behind the wheel. I don't understand why the car's system doesn't detect her though.

Internship Hunt

I'm having my first interviews for my end-of-study internship tomorrow and on monday. Yaay. It starts to take form. I'm not sure I would be that excited to join either firm though, I will need to get more informations about the missions, but I will definitely take the chance to practice my interviewee skills.

Entertainment

I enjoyed "La Casa de Papel" tv series. Loved that it was in spanish. You should watch the first ep, and you will probably be hooked. It's about a fictional heist of the Royal Mint of Spain.

I'm really happy that this is happening. Incentives to do the right thing.

Next step: It should also be mandatory for clothes that doesn't sell themselves : instead of burning them, give them to the people who need them the most.

Thanks!

Yes. I guess I just need a little drink to push myself towards what I want.

Strategic consulting firms usually recruit year-long, with a slow-down period in July and August (French holiday season) and my department updates new offers when they appear. I'm in a target school while not being in the "top" target school, so... if I do my homework I should be able to get into one.

It's paid, and ideally I would love to work in one that focuses more on technology, but the competition is harder.

Would love to send you my cover letter, but it's in French ahah
