To be honest I achieved very little in either lockdown. Managed to read a lot during the first one but that fell off when socializing became an option again over the summer and I haven't managed to start up properly again bar the odd 20 pages here and there now that we're back in lockdown.

My fundamentals are reasonably sound (he says with a lot of false confidence), I did C# in college and use php on the daily

The real reason I'm interested in mainly just for dicking around rather than using it in any sort of professional setting - automation/raspberry Pi/dumb little projects kinda stuff

Read/listened to a lot of stoic philosophy and now the history of Rome too.
Oh..envy. The only one thing related to philosophy I did this year: I've visited Immanuel Kant's grave today. :D I'm currently in Russian Kaliningrad for a couple of days and decided to visit its "Königsberg places",so Kant's grave was on my list.
Why do you read it? Just for.. pleasure?:rolleyes:


I wouldn't,
I went pretty hardcore into trying to get the basics before I went there in March, since then I've just been doing the bare minimum so the app will stop sending me notifications to do my daily practise
Well,it's difficult to learn a foreign language if you don't work in it/don't live in this foreign country tbh. I was learning a couple of languages that I completely forgot because never used them after. Although, have never learned Polish but speak it fluently now after living for 4 years in Poland and talking to my colleagues in Polish..so if you really want to learn it, it's better to move to Japan I think

I definitely enjoy it, I wouldn't say pleasure though, I find it very helpful for my mental health, motivation etc... So there's definitely a self improvement aspect to it and I take a lot of quotes down.

Would you recommend something to read? For mental health and motivation, I mean

Ego is the enemy is a good one to get into it. Anything by Ryan Holiday is very good.
