“Everything I know I learned after I was thirty.”– Georges Clemenceau
I’ve been feeling the need the last few days to write articles. I always write my articles in one shot, then publish them and make a few corrections on the go the next few days. I felt the need to mention this, because I am not yet happy with my lastly published article about gamification ! Sometimes I would take notes during the day on my phone about subjects I want to write more about later, and then spend some time compiling the similar notes together in order to form sort of a backbone of the next article. There is no logic on when I publish or write these, it can be between two classes, between two meetings or in the middle of the night when I can’t fall asleep.
Believe it or not, I am sort of suffering of a little down time following my birthday’s celebration last weekend 🤔
I have millions of ideas coming to my head all day long, when a subject is interesting enough to me I take notes or also spend time looking into it. Then I try to figure out if it’s worth sharing to the blog or not.
It can be super diverse thoughts and subject such as how trains are going from China to Europe given the fact the track width is changing between different countries, found out there are dedicated train stations with special tracks that allow trains to gradually widen or narrow their width (of course they need trains who have the ability to do so) at the speed of 15km/h which is nonetheless impressive given the forces and weight at stake. Or how come property developers all around European cities are building super small 15 square meters surfaces and how this type of apartments on the market is influencing rent and property prices. I think that last one is a really big & important subject which I will write about later. Everywhere I have been, Paris, Lyon, Berlin, Wroclaw, I have seen the exact same phenomenon of newly built overpriced 15 sqM apartments, the size of a student apartment but sold has one room for young couples … driving the prices of the whole city market up like crazy. It’s also crazy how now kitchens are disappearing in modern 2 rooms apartment, with part of the living room becoming an open kitchen.
Anyway I keep this one for later, because it’s quite a large subjects ! By the way I am surprised that even today we do not have any European size newspaper with journalist coming from all the countries and publishing about a wide range of subjects, maybe there is not anyone really interested in the end about Europe as a whole but only citizen of different countries only caring about their own land, SAD. That’s another subject again , see ! Writing on a subject is always widening my thoughts to new important subjects 😅 European Union has been build politically, forgetting the citizens themselves, who only see it has a nice way to cross borders (except during the first part of covid times brrrrhh) and use the same currency.
I am currently creating my own company in order to be able to freelance in France and offer my help to companies needing help with their customer care. Not sure how well it will go, but just spending time to create things makes me want to create even more !
I have a few entrepreneurial projects on my mind, and I think I finally have the confidence (maybe it comes with age ? Or at least maturity ) to try, I am not scared of failure at all, had my own failures before but each time it helped me progress.
I already mentioned it before, but I am following intensive class of Python development, following some live Python also on Twitch, king of becoming a geek. Since it’s mobilising quite a lot of mathematics I had to take a few classes again also… On the side I also study Front End in order to be able to start interviews faster than Python which is much more complex. It’s definitely a new passion, I love technical fields, I should have gone into it from the beginning 🤔 ! The hardest part when you study/work alone is to not feel guilty while you are not doing it !
I think programming is the logical learning to work on right now, it should really be taught at school in France, not sure when our government plans to finally update the way they teach technical fields at school ? Maybe in 20 years … I feel the how annoying those subjects are just by writing about it, when I was mentioning already European Union I felt that it’s a hot topic, probably not worth the burden.
