After 5 very tumultuous months (although just by looking at the articles here you couldn’t tell) June was finally a month for rest. Not in the sense of vacationing, but more like settling down, re-inserting in a new context. By the end of the month I was already in long term accommodation and all the logistic and paperwork finished.
June was also one of the hottest months of the year (along with July and August, but we’re not there yet) so a lot of my walking had to take place either very early in the morning, or later in the evening. It was also the month in which I finally figured out a work landscape, combining a few coffee shops into a manageable system. It may seem superfluous, but working is a very important part of my life, and where I work is fundamental. I used to be a digital nomad for years, and I consider myself location independent ever since the Covid-19 clusterfuck hit, but that doesn’t mean I don’t need a good place to work from. On the contrary, where I work from has a big impact of my productivity.
In terms of writing, June was also a good month. There were quite a few interesting things happening in the world, El Salvador starting to accept Bitcoin as a legal tender being by far the most important one. The world continued to sink into totalitarianism, and truth started to be clogged in a sea of information. As busy I was, I still had time for a little bit of work on ZenTasktic, pushing a bugfix release long overdue.
If would have to define June in a single word, that would be “relaxation”. If I would have to define it in a longer sentence, that would be “accepting rewards and enjoying a short respite”.
