Personal blog with hopefully insigtful content
Today, I wanted to see how far I could push myself. So I did a 5km run as fast as I could. It was tough, and I thought I would be able to go a bit faster. I ran 5km in 26 minutes and 38 seconds. I know that if I dedicated more of my life to running, I could easily improve this time, but I'm happy with the current result considering the training done.
Today, while browsing Hacker News, I found an interesting CPU guide created by a 17-year-old. I'm not sure how good is it, but it looks promising. I will definitely check it out over the weekend. Seems like it's going to be a fun weekend.
Reconnecting in a Disconnected World: A Personal Reflection
Some posts on this blog are personal, while others are hopefully more useful in nature. This one just might be both. I want to share these "tips" because I do struggle with loneliness from time to time, especially more recently. For the past weeks, perhaps even months, I've been struggling quite a bit, not feeling at my best. One of the significant issues was the post-college shock when I realized that I'm becoming more and more of an adult. Not that I don't like the responsibilities, but life has changed, and I have to adapt to it.
My running preparations are going well. Today, I went on another 7km run. I've also registered for a 10km race in my hometown happening at the end of August. This will help me prepare better for the upcoming Ljubljana 10km race in October. My hometown race will give me a better understanding of my current race pace and areas I need to improve on for the October race.
A few days ago, I wrote about forking a ChatGPT search extension. Well, I've already tinkered with it a bit, and I'm gradually making some improvements. For instance, I added an option where the request is triggered when a '?' is present in the query, as well as when the user clicks on the prompt. This is just one of many features that I thought were missing from the original extension. I'm still figuring out a few things, so I wouldn't recommend installing it just yet, but you can find the repository on my Github account.
For the past few days, I've been enjoying some TED talks. During my 7-Day Internet Consumption Reset, I wanted to find an educational medium that I could watch due to my YouTube restriction. Most of the TED talks I've watched are not only inspirational but also funny and interesting.
The floods in Slovenia, my home country, have preoccupied my thoughts for the past few days. My household isn't affected, but I empathize with anyone who is. It's dreadful.
Back to Basics: My Return to Firefox after Exploring the Arc Browser
I've been an early user of the Arc browser. There are a few things about The Browser Company, the company behind Arc browser, that are slightly worrying. If you know anything about me, it's that I love to check out new tech, apps, ideas - I always strive to stay up-to-date and try the latest offerings.
