Inspired by Derek Sivers now page, here’s what I am doing right now (last update December 2022):
- Working as a freelancer, helping my clients tame their data.
- Reading. My Dune reading project has come to a stop for now. The early Brian Herbert books are really hard to get in Dutch and I’m hesitating on whether or not to continue in English. In the mean time, I reached my humble reading goal this year of 1 book per year.
- Making music. I’m still stuck with a lot of inspiration and not much actual finished music. Except for this remix that I’m pretty happy with.
- Learning Japanese, 10 minutes a day. It’s a very slow process.
- Trying to make Home Assistant manage my home energy. I’m currently working on an add-on that, I hope, will be functional enough to show off in the first quarter of next year.
- My current videogame rotation: Immortals: Fenyx Rising, Fortnite, Fall Guys and Star Citizen.
What I’m not doing right now:
- Organizing my music collection using the awesome Beets. I’m really wondering whether or not I should continue with this. I’ve been doing almost all my music listening through Google Home and it’s very difficult to get your local collections nicely integrated.
- Building various robots. One goal for next year is to revive my Lego sorting project.
