The evening atmosphere on Nordstrand after a nice evening swim 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊

Finally, I proudly present my latest creation: AnarchyDB ➙
The anarchical DB: No tests (sic!), no querying (apart from getting out what you've put in), no security, and no promises. Have fun!

An afternoon swim 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊: At 7-8 °C still fresh in the water, but with sunshine ☀️ and wind lots of fun too.
Yay, it's spring at the water's getting warmer. 😃

Nice: The sticker & pin arrived!
Apparently the ratio of the blue vs. yellow areas is the same as the ratio of ocean area to land on Earth.

Swimming time again 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊: Water 5°C, air 11°C. Not too much wind and calm water made the swimming easy.

The puddle to the left and right of the paved way are left behind sea water for the previous higher-than-usual high tide.

Swimming 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊 again: ≈2min in 2°C water.
Incredible blues in the sky & water. Interestingly *in* the water it looked green (the water, not the sky 😀).
A great time anyway, whatever the colour. 😃

Oh… my place got covered in a white layer of … hail in the last ≈30min. 🤨

Another 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊: Lovely but fresh weather and 5°C in the water.

After a short Christmas 🌊🏊‍♂️ 🌊 (at 3°C in the water). Tried my new 'dryrobe' – and it's great! It's lovely to have a nice hot tea afterwards. 😃

Gifted myself a mobile changing spot for (not only) winter 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊.

Will try out together with the changing coat later. 😀

Today it's a walk at the 🚶🏼, tomorrow it may be swimming 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊 time again. 🙂

Decided on the book to read over the holidays: 'Gödel, Esche, Bach'. Douglas R. Hofstadter. Klett Kotta. 6. printing. 1985.

Nineteenhundreteightyfive – that's why it's the German translation. 🙂

Wanted to read the English ebook edition, but the preview was disappointing (to say the least) and the reviews complained about it being a badly scanned and OCRed version. 🤷‍♂️


How my current Job Search is going.

Got an offer already, but for several reasons I decided to decline.

Have you heard of other Junior Dev openings?

Please, let me know. 😄


In case you wondered about the lack on 🌊🏊‍♂️🌊 posts recently, here's why: The water is too crispy these days. 😄

It's easy during scary times to lead with fear. Just remember that it wasn't fear, but love that brought you here.

Call a friend, touch some grass, and keep the faith, y'all.
