A Life Hack Advice

I believe that we live our everyday lives without actually reflecting on our habits and why we do things the way we always do. Have you ever wondered about that? For example, why do we go to school for more than 10 years and are required to sit down all day and just act as we are told?

My 2019

It took me at least almost 30 years to finally live in peace with depression and anxiety. I honestly didn’t believe I would still be alive at this age.

New Me, New Blog

I’ve been thinking of switching my blog to Hugo for a while. The main reason for that is because I’ve changed a lot since I first started writing on my previous wordpress blog. My interests have changed a lot and I think it’s time to move to something new. I intend to discuss more about different interests, not just about software. That said, you can expect to find here posts about books, financial independence, living a more healthy lifestyle, including adopting environmental-friendly habits, investments, immigrating, and projects that i’m working on as I build them. …
