Back to business

Let’s get started

After taking vacation last week, it is just now immeasurably difficult to find my way back into my daily work. Actually, I should be sitting here now and working on the backend for a GRPC service for our accounting. I opened my code editor and wanted to get started with motivation, but couldn’t really find into the code.

Forcing myself to do it doesn’t really help me right now, so I decided to take part in [# 100DaysToOffload] ( It doesn’t help me finish my project, but it certainly helps me to write something regularly.

Only 5 days of vacation

Actually, I had planned to advance a private coding project for my vacation. Unfortunately, 2 things came up:

  1. My wife wanted to renovate … oh yeah
  2. During the time I wasn’t renovating, I got sucked into Dead by Daylight

Usually I play videogames only once or twice a week at the moment. Instead, I invest quite a bit in other activities, such as learning, sports, etc. Nevertheless, I believe that the exception was good and necessary … and it was fun too 😎

Try again from tomorrow

Yesterday evening I made the decision to “really get started” today. That worked well initially. I got up at 4:45 a.m. and around 7:00 a.m. worked through everything that had accumulated on vacation. I’ve already written what happened then 😅

For tomorrow the plan looks different again:

  • Coding my project for at least 4 hours
  • ideally write the second post for # 100DaysToOffload right away
  • we will see …
