Wow I've got to try this out. Meditation and general contemplation/slowing down is something I have not made time for but it is definitely necessary. The only such activity I take part in is going on leisurely strolls around the city. I live in the bustling centre of London but it's not too far to the nearest park.
I think it's more due to the specific position. Another result of me having my current job is that I've become interested in a bunch of computing things I didn't know/care about before, e.g. automating processes, creating systems that are a bit more distributed, maintainability.
Summer solstice today. I don't follow any religious traditions but if I could choose when to have a holiday, I would choose a day of ASTRONOMICAL SIGNIFICANCE! I always feel sad as the days get shorter and shorter... Time to spend as much time as possible in the sun before it goes away completely. The worst thing about autumn and winter is leaving work at night. I'm not looking forward to that.
Careful what you say here! It'll be traced back to your Facebook and your social security number and your reddit account you had five years ago where you wrote some comments on /r/trees.
I have other social media 'personas' which each correspond to a few accounts on social media. Having to maintain a complete disconnect between them feels really strange but I know that if I link to something I've made under one name from another account, they will then be 'linked' in the eyes of surveillance and anyone who cares to stalk me online. On the internet, you either share something with everyone or you don't share it at all. Sometimes I wish I never used this damn thing at all but I'm in too deep now!!!!
Today, I am angry. A completely preventable disaster has occurred in my city.
"Unfortunately, the Grenfell Action Group have reached the conclusion that only an incident that results in serious loss of life of KCTMO residents will allow the external scrutiny to occur that will shine a light on the practices that characterise the malign governance of this non-functioning organisation." - 20th November, 2016
Sometimes corruption means wasted taxpayers' money. Sometimes it means projects get completed late. Sometimes it means people die.
