Introduction: I'm Tuukka, and like tinkering with code and little toy soldiers (mostly 15mm ancients). I try to pick up reading again, preferably something that isn't code related. Currently that something seems to be #ancient #history.
I have a blog (https://engineersjourney.wordpress.com/), where I try to post now and then.
Frosty weather, -22°C. Better put on some winter clothes before heading out.
I wish Steam Powered Giraffe would make a cover of Chandelier.
I wish #Caesar had spend more time in Commentaries explaining tribes and their various beliefs and customs. While it's interesting to read about clever tactics and stratagem, reading about people is way more interesting.
I think #Tacitus wrote something like that as he even mentions Finns. Miserable people living way up north, who are happy as they wish nothing more. Or something along those lines.
When I woke up, weather service was showing -19°C outside, but luckily it's only -15°C. That's still good weather for biking.
that set is so old, worn out and painted with gaudy colours. But it's still one of my all time favourite games and I'm super happy our kid loves to play that with us.
instead of morning cartoons, we have Sunday morning Hero Quest session and this time I'm a player and not dungeon master
Been tinkering with papercrafts and Blender a bit. Thought that a simple watch tower would be easy enough to create, but turns out it's pretty difficult when you don't know how blender works.
survived the week, but I'm really tired in the saturday morning already.
tired and it's only noon
spent yesterday evening wondering how I ever got something done in blender. Seems I have forgotten everything.
spent last night not sleeping as kid was having bad night.
somehow I'm thinking I'm not working on anything code related tonight either. I'll be too tired by then.
not going to work on anything anymore tonight. Hopefully tomorrow though.
finished last of the library books I currently have. A trip to library is in order tomorrow then.
https://www.goodreads.com/work/editions/123209-gladiatoren was decent enough, but https://www.goodreads.com/work/editions/14584250-dammi-mille-baci-veri-uomini-e-vere-donne-nell-antica-roma was terrific (although translation had couple BCs mixed with ADs, but that was easy enough to spot).
gonna be a nerdy master engineer for a chance
hm.. I think I'm going to pick a new avatar
Didn't play anything at all yesterday. Today will hopefully be the same. I'll try and limit playing on weekends now and do something else over the week (like try to clean the basement)
Hey artists with other jobs to make rent... sometimes we compare ourselves to and our work to folks who do it full time or who can put in more hours... and sometimes we can be unkind to ourselves about it. Maybe it’s the extra time it takes us, the slower speed at which we improve, or the finished result. Maybe it’s the breaks we need or lack of energy.
