Yesterday I finished a physics exercise (first of 13). It can be quite difficult but it’s very rewarding when you get it right.
I also caught up with my reading. As I’m not attending lectures, there’s a lot to read.
After work, I managed to do one more pull-up than before. It’s a veeeryyy slow process but I’m getting closer to my subgoal (8+8+8) all the time (yesterday I did 8+5+1).
Today we gathered some items that had been lying around since we moved in and took them to the storage. Now this place is finally looking like home.
Yesterday I slept late and took my beautiful wife on a date. We went to eat the best burgers in town. After that, we walked around the city and returned home to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with a shared pint of Ben & Jerry’s Empowermint.
Today I studied loads and loads of physics. Like I mentioned earlier, I’ve got two different pysics courses at the moment.
The Obstacle Is the Way continues to inspire, it’s for certain one of the best books I’ve ever read, and I’m not even halfway through.
I also listened to some music and feel a new drive towards it. I have lots of plans for my new album.
Today I woke up at five a.m. to start composing my next album. I’ve been slipping away from music a little bit lately but now I’m going to make it a part of my days again.
After that I went to Tampere to do a physics lab work, the first of six. Quite a lot of sitting in the bus but I had my laptop with me so I had time to study and tweak the appearance of this blog.
It was a rainy but warm day. Evenings are getting darker and trees are losing their green. I guess the summer’s over.
Today I studied some more and also finished the second demo of the website project I’m currently working on.
Last night before going to sleep I bought an ebook called The Obstacle Is the Way by Ryan Holiday. I’ve already been tremendously inspired by the book, especially the story about Rubin Carter, who was in prison for 19 years for a crime he wasn’t guilty of, but didn’t allow that to let him down. Nineteen years, boy that’s some time.
Today I began this year’s actual studies. I have a total of six courses at the moment: C++ programming, software engineering, microprocessors, user experience and both theoretical and practical physics.
I also continued with the website project I mentioned yesterday. I was nervous about a colour gradient thing but it turned out fine. Now I’m struggling with the animation of the mobile navigation. I’ll get back to it tomorrow.
Today I started my second year at Tampere University of Technology. I’m mostly studying at home because of the distance.
I updated my personal curriculum and planned my studies for the current period.
I also made progress with a website project I’ve been working on for the last week. There’s a lot of tweaking with the CSS file and communicating with the graphic designer in order to make the site look good on all devices.
Today I took the subway to central Helsinki with my wife. We visited the Cathedral and went to eat some pasta.
Tonight I gave this site a fresh start. It’s been over two years since the last update – hopefully a little less than that until the next one!
