If you don't believe in yourself, I'll believe in you until you will too.

reminder (for myself too):
It's ok to question,
it's ok to be unsure,
it's ok to be confused,
it's ok to change you mind,
it's ok to be vulnerable,
it's also ok to be completely sure about yourself with nothing to question.

If you're having dark day, I hope there's somebody for you to reach out for. If not, reach out for me. I can't do much, but we can be confused together.

I'm Tuula and like tinkering with code and little toy soldiers (mostly 15mm ancients). I try to pick up reading again, preferably something that isn't code related. Currently that something seems to be .

I'm somewhat confused who or what I am, so you can expect steady stream of toots about that if you decide to follow me.

And I'll try to be generally friendly and safe person to be around.

I don't know what stomach bug the whole family got this time, but it would be nice if it didn't come back, ok?

But at least I finished Nine Princess of Amber.

it might not feel like it sometimes, but you've probably had some pretty neat character development over the last few years and i think you should be proud of yourself for that

Für den Fall dass ihr es noch nicht kennt:

A person called OwlKitty changed the Business Card scene from “American Psycho” to the guys showing each other pictures of their cats on their phones… and it could possibly be the greatest masterpiece ever.

#cats #americanpsycho

if anyone would have suggested couple years ago that I would start my morning with hour long yoga followed by healthy breakfast, I would have thought that person be sorely mistaken 😂

it's funny how things can change when you make peace with yourself.

existence of union of professional engineers implies existence of union of unprofessional engineers.

I suspect first one consist of engineers of all kinds, except software ones. The latter one consists solely of software "engineers".

I found my pen case and wrote a silly poem

pencil, pencil
another pencil
and yet another one
mechanical one
another one
and yet another one
thick pilot one
followed by a thin one
gilded pen
and a fountain one
brushie brushie
flowing with words

I recently learned that not everybody can think of an elephant and "see" it in their mind. I have always been able to do that. Same with smells, sounds and so on. Now I'm interested, how common it is not to be able to do that.

sickness, very minor 

got a flu, but at least it's very minor one so far. But annoying enough that I didn't want to do much yoga in the morning. Turning head down wasn't very pleasant feeling.

parenting 

Currently being a monster by telling the kid to do her homework.

At least not that many items have been thrown around and none directly at me.
