"Often injustice lies in what you aren't doing, not only in what you are doing."
- Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, 9.5

_Years_ ago, I wish someone had seen my paper copy of 'What Colour [sic] Is Your Parachute?', just walked up to me and paraphrased this quote. After learning how to learn, learning mastery has to be _the_ key life skill.

"A better motto for most youth [than 'Follow your bliss'] is 'Master something, anything.' Through mastery... you can drift towards extensions... that bring you more joy, and eventually discover where your bliss is."

Day 72 of the #100DaysToOffload Series:

I've been living at work for the last four months, and I need that to stop.

My internet hiatus was so intense that when cloudflare accidentally turned off half of the internet, I didn't even notice.

I do feel nervous about going out.
I don't necessarily think we are ready.

I am very productive working from home, and I don't miss the long commute, but I am actually happy to go back to the office tomorrow.
Also I am very thankful I can go by car rather than travel on the really crowded, terrible train I used when I was commuting before the lockdown.

Tomorrow is my 1st day back to the office after 3 months working from home. It'll also be the 3rd time I leave the house in 3 months, and the 1st time I stay away for more than 2 hours.

I love this quote and I strongly believe in it, but unfortunately, I have to unpin it because it is a misquote.

#linux #gnu #freesw: I wish all join Mastodon.

The weekend started, meaning it is time to farm some minerals in my island.

*Finally* Animal Crossing New Horizons is in my hands and in my Switch!
I called my island Solace (from the Dragonlance books), and I have cherries! And a debt with Nook, of course.

The sad story of how I am still not playing Animal Crossing...
A friend bought it for me as a present in February, so I got a card saying the game would come.
Then lockdown happened, and I was fighting anixety, but thought: "AC is coming soon!"
Except this friend had the package shipped to the office. :blobcat:
I am are home. And AC is sitting at the office by itself.
This story is only half sad though, because I am still lucky enough to have friends who gift me with awesome games for my birthday.


I am new, so here is an introduction:

I live in Italy, I have been working in the videogames industry for a long time and I love my job.

I always loved tech just as much as I love art, tea, cats, books, D&D, and heavy metal.

I care about equal rights for all humans, sustainability, and people above profit.

Manjaro Linux is my main and only OS.

My favourite game I worked on is Control. Favourites I haven't worked on are Dragon Age and Animal Crossing.
