Welcome to the 89th edition
Another week, another newsletter! I hope that you all had a great one 🤩
I’ve had a really stressful week (yes, one more :o). I have good hopes to be past the stressful times by the end of the year, but as the weeks pass, I realize that I may be over-optimistic about that.
I also feel a massive lack of energy. I feel depleted. I’ve lost a lot of momentum on social networks and find it hard to resume sharing and engaging, which has ripple effects on the rest of what I do.
My main goal, for now, remains to fix the issues I’ve been battling for months because those prevent me from really putting my energy into my projects. My head is clearly elsewhere, and at the end of the day, I can’t find the energy to work on side projects anymore. Bummer!
So it’s an energy crisis, just like Europe is facing right now. A different kind of crisis, but still a crisis. Europe is filling the tanks as much as possible and preparing for the Winter to come. And on my end I’m trying to waste as little energy as I can on things that don’t deserve it. But just like Nord Stream, there are energy leaks, and I can only try to cope with those.
