Fasting, day 2 

Day 1 of a 7 day water fast.

I've developed some unhealthy eating patterns lately, so I need a reset. I've done a 3 day water fast before. It went surprisingly well. I liked the mental clarity that came with it and feeling reconnected with my body again. I haven't experienced real hunger in a long time - I mostly eat out of habit or being bored. I'll be working out for the first three days, taking a break after that. Time to burn some reserves. πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

@Gina I'm so tired of not being obscenely wealthy.

Guys could someone lend me 1.2 million euro please? I could really use an entire village in Portugal for my retreat 😍

More insomnia 

Status update: we went from 78 open tickets to 53. All low hanging fruit. Now the digging really starts.

#TIL about Radically Open Security, "a not-for-profit computer security company legally established as a 'Fiscaal Fondsenwervende Instelling' (fiscal fundraising institution) in the #Netherlands. This enables 90% of all profits to go tax-free to the #NLnet Foundation in support of open source technology, digital rights and open internet research."

The #OpenSalary hashtag now has community unanimity (2 persons πŸ˜„)! Use it to share your work conditions, compensation and what you’re up to as a tech or non-tech worker.

Two examples to start:

Thanks to @duponin and @viv.

Recently on Twitter, some tech people openly shared how much they make.

It's good, but only rich workers are sharing. It doesn't help to feel good nor reflect anything about life quality, happiness, perspectives…

Let's try to make it more useful.

Monk opened a new boulderhall in ! Super interesting, it has a door policy to keep out beginners; you're only allowed in if you have your own shoes and climb above 5+.

So far I see a lot of cool routes. The walls are smooth, which feels really weird. Lots of overhang, and some routes go up to 8b!

What a time to be alive 🀯πŸ₯³πŸ₯³

I've got a strange question for you, and apologies if this seems a bit forward.

I love my dog. Believe me, he is living his best life here for hopefully many more years. But I really need a vacation.

Are there people in the Netherlands interested in looking after Jazz for a few days? 🐢 Daycare is insanely expensive and all my friends and family have fulltime jobs/live in tiny apartments/have a million cats.
