Weeknotes 2023 W29:

What are these? These week­notes are a reflection on the past week. I write about anything from hobby projects and work to creativity and mental health. I publish my week­notes every Sunday morning. Consider subscribing via email or using the web feed!

Quick bits:

I don’t share my photos often, but this one I liked in particular:

Unfortunately, I by accident did not take the photo in RAW and the compression artifacts are quite visible. It turns out that on the iPhone camera app, you have to enable RAW every single time you open the app. Why?!

Here’s one more photo — a much more colorful one:

On the back of my mind remains the question of where I want to live, whether I want to remain in Berlin or not.

I’ve now been in Berlin for ten years, which is the longest I’ve ever lived anywhere. It gets boring at times, and I’m lacking a sense of adventure, of being outside of my comfort zone.

But if not Berlin, where else would I live? That’s a question with no answer just yet. Somewhere that’s fairly easy to settle in and build a social network, where I can work, where healthcare is decent, and where language is not a barrier. I’m not sure what those locations would be.

I finished a short story: Norr. Go read it. It’ll take you about 8 minutes.

This is the longest short story I’ve written so far, clocking in just under 2000 words. It is also the most emotional, and, in some ways, the most personal story I’ve written — though it superficially doesn’t look like it.

Let me know what you think?
