Would you do it to your kid?

Still felt tired after napping for extra 2 hours on top of the 4.5 hours of sleep last night. Debated if I should let myself sleep more right now (only 7pm) and not worry about writing or feel guilty of not being more productive. Reason is I’ve spent 4h and 16m fiddlin with my phone…

Belum divaksin != anti vaksin

Belum divaksin != anti vaksin

Abis baca https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2021/07/unvaccinated-different-anti-vax/619523/ Intinya: orang yang belum divaksinasi itu bukan berarti orang itu anti vaksinasi. Satu2nya yang serupa antara kedua “kelompok” itu adalah mereka lebih rentan kena efek yang lebih parah kalau terpapar covid. Di artikel The Atlantic ini, Ed Yong sang jurnalis, mewawancarai dokter anak dan advokat kesehatan publik di SF yang gigih bergerilya…

Pregenerate

Was reading this… https://erikbern.com/…/07/the-data-team-a-short-story.html   Immediately thought of this brilliance I saw earlier today…. https://www.instagram.com/p/CRHpXixn0Lp/ Oh internet. I love you sometimes.

we’re just tired

it gets better I’ve heard that phrase used a lot in the context of encouraging people struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts, IIRC especially popular in LGBTQ circles. only recently that phrase resonated with me.

When We Read

been thinking about this guy’s comment about how reading is actually the activity where you are reminded about something you’d already thought about. it’s very rare that we learn something new. hmm…. what he said felt true when I read it on Thursday, but now there are bits in it that I disagree with, but…

Stuff I learned about life so far

Stuff I learned about life so far. Yet another dump of it, off the top of my head. we tell ourselves stories, all. the. time. things take time they take nothing is wasted we adapt, and need novelty. we’ll create problems just for the sake of movements most things are noise. can ignore for a…

Post sabbatical quick reflection

3 full weeks back at work. 15 work days. lost all trace of the natural pace I managed to slowly ease back into. the unhurried life. the unpunctuated life. the life without expectations. poof. the mental bugs are still solved and mental refactors are still holding up. the perspective and energy are still there. haven’t…

Sensory refeeds

Why does digital detox work? The simple explanation is “because social media is bad”. Let’s unpack that. My current take is that digital detox works because (and if) unplugging forced us to 1) engage our other senses and 2) calibrate our perception against reality. Both are somewhat obvious points but let me use this post…

36 soon

I’ll be 36 in 4 months. I think I did well. I did fairly decent job at this thing called life. I didn’t cause any harm to my loved ones’ lives. physically, mentally, emotionally I think I have taken good care of these of those I love and care for. I had some glory, nice…
