I just signed my own first apartment lease. 🎉 I will now have a lot to do over the next few months. 😅
Picture Henrique Dias
Born in Portugal 🇵🇹. I am a Master’s student 🎓 in Computer Science and Engineering at TU/e, in Eindhoven 🇳🇱. At the same time, I’ve been working part-time with Protocol Labs on the decentralization of the web 🌐. I believe in the transparency and openness of the world, in a united Europe 🇪🇺 and that we should all have equal rights 🏳️🌈.
Today I got my booster.
I also had my first graduation project related meeting. It’s quite nice to finally have some direction. Now I have about three weeks to come up with a good research question within the topic and search what’s done.
In the meanwhile, I already surpassed the 100th page of the book I am reading. I did not expect to be this fast, considering that this author is quite particular: he doesn’t adhere to regular punctuation laws! Only commas and periods, capital letter to indicate speech and very few paragraphs.
I will make it a goal for this year to regain the habit of reading frequently, which I mostly lost after high school. And I started today!
That’s been the entire month of December in the Netherlands. Is it also that bad in that side of the border? Here’s an interesting video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGJseovT8ug
That was something that surprised me a lot when I moved 😂
abesbílico - an informal Portuguese word meaning “astonished”. It’s uncommon to hear it but I love it.
Once again, a year is ending. It feels like it was yesterday that I was first discovering the IndieWeb and adding new features to my website, but that was 2 years ago now. Time has been passing quite fast since the pandemic started.
December was packed. I had many different presentations, deliverie…
Quando é que a CML faz algo em relação aos milhares de prédios abandonados em Lisboa (8% em 2013)? Tantos edifícios que dariam habitação a milhares de pessoas. Noutros países europeus coisas destas não se veriam tão frequentemente.
Merry Christmas (Eve) to everyone! I hope you enjoy the time with family or special others 🎄🎅
I’m so much going to lose all my sleep weekly streaks on Swarm when I go to Portugal 🤣
You know one good thing Covid brought? I don’t need to give two kisses (one in each cheek) every time I meet a Portuguese woman or a family member! When I was a kid and wouldn’t do it, my mom would immediately say “go give two little kisses, otherwise it looks bad”.
This should be fixed. If you use
hacdias/indieauth, I recommend updating.
For whoever tried to login into my website and got an error or blank page: I will try to fix it tomorrow 😅
I went to the cinema today in over a year and it was a bit scary: no one was wearing masks inside 🤭 On the other hand, I can say that Lab 1 is a nice cinema.
