#2427 – Blogging, Recent TV Shows, and A DST

ENGLISH So as you may have noticed, recently my posting frequency here has gone further downhill. To be frank, it has been quite hard to find the motivation to write here; but I think this is something that a lot of us have been feeling anyway. And WordPress certainly doesn’t help. In fact, I feel…

#2423 – September Updates

ENGLISH It seems it has been a while since I last wrote about general life here. Though, not that much update on that front actually, haha 😆 . I mean, I still work from home, which setup by this point has basically established itself as a “regular” thing. I feel like when (or if?) I…

#2417 – A Printer and A Toaster
