The one hour workday

I want to share this text, The 1-hour workday, which a friend posted on Facebook recently (see, it can be good for something!). In the text an academic discuss his trick to keep productive (in the sense of writing papers) in the middle of all other university tasks, such as classes, meetings, reviews, activities. His […]

Pending List

There are too many awesome people living today. If I spent my whole life trying, I would never be able to meet them all. There are too many books, too many jobs. Too many pretty streets, too many interesting houses to visit. There are too many cities with their traditional dishes and their must-see locations. […]

I have been only using 10% of my power!

Order of the stick has updated! This is my favorite webcomic, although the update schedule is… so… damn… slow. Which is specially frustating when the author is going full dragonballZ (never go full dragonballZ). Other comics that I often read include XKCD, SMBC, PhD Comics, Strong Female Protagonist, Erfworld and Oglaf (NSFW). On other news, […]

Taking it easy

Yesterday I spent a lot of time reading books, I guess today was computer game day. Halfway has great graphics and a veey imteresting story, but the gameplay and level design were kinda dull. Prison architect has finally released a version 1.0. Lots of interesting systems. Still havent got the hang of preventing tunnel escapes, […]

When I am in the bus or train, my random thoughts always have this little “I should blog this” part — this also happens sometimes when I am taking a […]

Cute kittens

I’ve recently finished The Martian in record time. It was a very fine book. A large part of the book is narrated in “Blog” format from the protagonist, which made me think of my own semi-abandoned blog. How many of my passing thoughts have been lost to the void? Maybe it is better this way […]

The Singularity is passing by me

This past week I have been doing a lot of introspecting about my self-dissatisfaction. Sometimes I evaluated what I have been doing with my life, sometimes I just wallow in self pity, sometimes I even delete games from my computer and draw strategies to turn everything right starting this very moment. It has been a […]

Mental fat, part 2

When i was in high school, I remember a weekend when I solved 300 physics problems to study for the university entrance examination. In the first presentation of my master degree, I had a thick stack of papers that I had referenced in a few weeks in order to prepare for it. Somehow, I feel […]
