It’s been a hot summer in many regards. Temperatures were ridiculously high in Germany and while some places saw exceptional drought and wildfire, others saw heavy rain and thunderstorms. It’s nearly a metaphor for my working life. There were the usual ups and downs in collections management, aggravated by the problematic weather conditions. Then, there is one of my side jobs which has to do with work related legal issues and solving conflicts. This one required more of my time and ability to write than usual. Long story short, I remembered to practice what I preach: that good collections care always means taking good care of yourself in the first place.
Registrar Trek was one of the things that I put on hold. I stayed away from this highly work-related blog and social media activities in general and instead focused on improving my soldering skills (which are still my main obstacle in all things microcontroller), dabbling with the 3D-printer and taking baby steps into woodworking (if you are interested in learning how to fix things and become more comfortable with tools in general, definitely look at Leah Bolden’s excellent “How to” videos at See Jane Drill).
With the fall approaching things start to look a little less turbulent and I hope I will be able to fill the blog again with interesting things. Of course, all is easier if you help with it, so keep pictures, stories and articles coming to email@example.com
