Excellent September

September was a fantastic month where I solidified some practices and experimented with others and altogether the outcome was very satisfactory.


My new computer gives me a lot of flexibility I didn’t have before and I still have my old one (which is useful again after getting rid of Parallels) as a backup in case I have malfunction debacles.

I’ve also got used to studying on Pluralsight in combination with Udemy. Pluralsight’s courses are fantastic, University level stuff. And I can easily go back and forth between courses according to my needs.

I’ve also cemented a note taking system that allows me to switch amongst courses easily without feeling lost or having to restart from scratch. For that I’m using Evernote.


My eating habits have changed a lot this month. I no longer eat breakfast and have been fasting between 12 and 16 hours daily. I still wasn’t able to get rid of my lower ab pudge, but my body fat has dramatically decreased. I also love that I don’t “have” to it at any particular time anymore, which gives me extra flexibility. Plus eating way less makes me consider every little thing I eat way more carefully.


In September I’ve also been to three social dance parties, the first few after Covid. Although I was extremely happy to be on the dance floor again, I felt very self-conscious in the first too. I kept dancing a lot during covid, but it’s just such a distinct experience that I can say I was truly rusty. Last Friday I taught a decent size workshop (30 couples) at Dance Culture and in the social that ensued I finally felt a bit more comfortable. I was able to feel the music, remember moves and not get out of time often. It doesn’t matter how much I code in the next ten to twenty years, I just know for sure I’ll keep dancing, because I love it so much.

Tracing Inputs

I didn’t do a very good job at tracking my inputs in a way that would make it easy for me to post them here, but I’ll post a big “September” Spotify playlist in the next few days, with everything I listened to. Most of it was Tim Ferriss as usual but I also listened to Biographics: History One Life at a Time. I’m definitely hooked, I’ll listen to the whole collection very quickly.


Blogging was a bit of a disaster but towards the end of the month I found out I can write at least parts of posts during commute, which does help getting some posts done. If I leave it to the end of the day like right now (it’s 11:17pm) it doesn’t work, I just want to go to bed.

I wish myself a great September. I’ll definitely work and study very hard and hopefully will keep that people that matter close to me 😉
