On some days it’s just impossible for me to focus. brain.fm to the rescue!

Late night train station pickup yesterday… always good to welcome friends you havenβ€˜t seen in a while!

Went for a walk in the woods with my daughter today…

When not dealing with Tech for a while also helps you not to worry about a lot of annoying things. For example: I had more luck with macOS betas in the past πŸ˜‰

Being away from tech for some time shifts your focus. It doesn’t really matter anymore. It’s a good thing, but you need to be careful to not get left behind. Many things people think are indispensable today are really just minor annoyances.

The last couple of weeks were a blast! Only family & friends. I almost completely shut off my internet consumption… no Twitter, no FB, no Micro.blog. I didn’t turn on my computer for the last 7 weeks. 1 week left before going back to work. I wonder what that will feel like πŸ˜‰

Turns out… there are quite some moskitos out here in the woods at Algonquin Park πŸ˜• They’re eating us alive, so we’ll head somewhere else tomorrow already πŸ™

Brought my very old wireless keyboard from Apple on vacation. It’s not the best, but it’s so much better than the current Macbook keyboards. Plus: after a few days of settling in & winding down, I finally get back into the mood for writing πŸ™ƒ And still a couple of weeks left πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Just heard about the bombing in Manchester πŸ˜” I felt anxious at the last concert I went to. I stood in the middle of the hall, but instead of enjoying the really good support act, I wondered what the best way out in case of a terror attack would be. It’s real 😰

Jetlag day πŸ˜” I hope I’m not getting sick 😷 We didn’t get much done and stayed most of the time in our Airbnb, which is fine. I hope we all are in better shape tomorrow for Victoria Day! πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ πŸ’₯

Rainy day in Toronto, not sure what we’re up to today. Maybe we’ll go to the Aquarium and check out some 🐟 The light and colors will be a highlight for my daughter… always makes her happy 😊

Canadians are sooo friendly! It’s amazing! And you can feel it’s from the heart. Unlike in the US where they smile at you but don’t give a crap about you. Such a lovely country!

First day in Toronto! We didn’t go that far downtown so everything feels a little less like a massive city. Probably a good thing because we’re still tired from the flight, time difference etc. Great relieve to have an amazing travel baby that doesn’t care about timezones πŸ™ƒ

Entering Canada is a much much MUCH better experience than entering the US. Nobody seemed like they wanted to put us into jail just because reasons. Everyone is friendly & smiling & greeting you. And of course the first thing I saw at the airport: Eishockey 😊

Going to drop off our bags at the airport this evening. Never did this before, but we hope to have it a little easier tomorrow with the stroller and everything then…

Left the office for twi full months! Feels not too bad πŸ˜‰

Starting the last preparations for our Canada trip. It’s getting serious around here! πŸ™ƒ

The Eurovision Song Contest is a weird thing… But an event where all of Europe celebrates together is exactly what we need in these times!

Still need to figure out a good way to share private photos of our Canada trip. I used to do a simple Photo Stream, but somehow this is not a real thing in my circles and it combines groups of friends and family that have a very different kind of humor when commenting πŸ™ƒ

Only a couple of days left until my little family’s trip to Canada! Really excited, but still lots of stuff to organize… I hope our little daughter will be fine during her first trip on an airplane πŸ˜•

On a happier note, leaving the horrendous keyboard unmentioned, the sound of the new Macbooks is really amazing!

After less than 3 months, the keyboard of my new Macbook is broken. Confirms my opinion of it being the worst keyboard ever produced in the history of computers.

Amazing Trailer for the new Blade Runner movie! The original is one of my all-time favourite movies… I hope this one lives up to the expectations! I really like the teasers/trailes so far! youtu.be/gCcx85zbx…

Sometimes there are so many projects on your plate that you are completely baffled and unable to accomplish anything. Taking a step back and checking what really needs to be done helps a lot. I tend to always forget that… Turns out: not that much to do at the moment πŸ™ƒ

Podcasts have come a long way! Lore getting its own TV show on Amazon, Brian Reed of S-Town as a guest on the Tonight Show… This medium is very much underrated and lots of people still don’t even know what a Podcast is 😐
