An ever-changing list of books I want to read, those I'm currently reading and those I've already read, starting from this year:

Hola! I'm Jere, an engineering student from Argentina. I'm trying to lead a da Vincian life, focusing on art & science. Right now I'm going through a phase focused mostly on learning, so my ready-to-share output is fairly low. That should change as time passes.

Things I'm learning: engineering, programming, physics, jazz piano, martial arts, philosophy, literature.

Thanks for having me!

Huh, can't get out of bed ☹️ I wanted to do so many things today

Finished my PT sessions. 3 weeks to progressively build up to my previous PR and I'll be good as new 😀

I'm 24 now, and for the first time since I moved here on my own I feel like I'm moving somewhere. It has been a difficult period, but I regret absolutely nothing about it: the people I've met, the things I've learned about me, about life itself, and also the mistakes I made.

Writing this post is giving me trouble haha I feel like a real writer now, having writer's block and all that jazz

One of the things that truly scare me is growing old and realizing that I wasted my time pursuing the wrong things, fragmenting my time between frivolous hobbies. The only thing that keeps me going forward is that the alternative, freezing and not doing anything until I know for sure, is tremendously boring.

I might be on the wrong path, I might never reach "master" status in any of the things I do, but at least I'm having a blast over here. And to me that's a nice trade off 🤷🏻‍♂️

“The art critic John Berger, the guy who wrote the iconic “Ways of Seeing” in 1971, recently wrote an essay “Why look at Animals?” (2009). In it, he argued that #zoos are emblematic of western society’s disenchanted worldview, where science has stripped away the basic ‘Being’ of #animals, considering them devoid of any interiority. As such, house them where you will; they’re all the same wherever they live.”

Also, every dialogue not spoken by Hank sounds too forced. His lines are pretty on point though

I like the idea behind Californication, but I can't stand the
Hank: (breathes)
Woman who was near him: Oh, Hank! Fuck me!!

I understand having a womanizer as a character, but can't his interactions have some kind of substance? It's the same Futūtiō Ex Machina that made me cringe during Lucifer (where it actually made kind of sense, considering he was the devil) and Suits. One of the few series I can think of that did the womanizer character correctly is Mad Men.

Went ahead and set up a GitBook to use as a wiki to organize my projects, inspired by @nikivi page. So far it's private, but I plan to make it public in the future (and to develop my own tool, I need like less than half of the feature this has).

Thanks for the idea @neauoire 😃

"Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. [...] But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die. "

"THE problem with accepting — with preferring — diminished substitutes is that over time, we, too, become diminished substitutes. People who become used to saying little become used to feeling little. "

"We often use technology to save time, but increasingly, it either takes the saved time along with it, or makes the saved time less present, intimate and rich."

"Technology celebrates connectedness, but encourages retreat."

"Most of our communication technologies began as diminished substitutes for an impossible activity. [...] But then a funny thing happened: we began to prefer the diminished substitutes."

"Each step “forward” has made it easier, just a little, to avoid the emotional work of being present, to convey information rather than humanity. "

F*ck, I was procrastinating on studying this subject and now that I've sat down to study I'm hooked!

Do you people follow any specific system to deal with multiple projects concurrently? I'm looking for ways to optimize my time management

The Good Place is an incredibly good series. I completely underestimated it when I started watching it, but I stand corrected.

Inspired by Franklin's Thirteen Virtues, here are the virtues/values I'll try to optimize my life around:
- Order and Cleanliness
- Sincerity
- Productivity
- Moderation
- Creation
- Curiosity and Exploration
- Discipline
- Excellence
- Self-Reliance
- Courage
- Loyalty
- Equilibrium with Nature

I'll explain them in a blog post tomorrow.

YES ! I'm so happy !! is live ! Only one landing page with an animation that I've done. I know it's very simple, but you can't imagine how much this means to me. I'm really proud and happy.

I'm very glad to this community, seeing everyone's project was trully motivating.

🔥 :tealheart:

Btw I'll change my pseudo for Srndiity, so there'll be both during some times...
