My ability to write coherent sentences seems hampered already.

I had a double-shot cappuccino at home, like most days. Then I made a double coffee in the office, just because I liked the warm feeling of a large mug of coffee on a rainy day. About half an hour later, a colleague brought Кулич (some sort of russian Easter cake), so I had to refill my then-half-empty-and-lukewarm cup to have enough hot coffee to drink together with the pastries.

I already had five shots of coffee today. Not because I craved caffeine, just because of circumstances.

Let's see how this is going to feel.

Also not sure if I should have CW'd this with something, and if yes, why and with what. I'll be happy to learn if you think I should've.

I'm talking about cobweb diagrams, by the way. (Not sure if I should feel extra stupid now because it's so simple.)

I used to feel really smart as a kid. University seems to have taken it almost all away from me. I didn't really notice until now it is starting to come back. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm not sure why. Hadn't I found it too important? Had I simply not taken the two minutes to read the paragraph because I seemed not to have time? Was my motivation for studying and academic work so low? Was it a mental health issue?

What state of mind had university put me in? Studying for my final oral exam – after already working full-time in the industry for about two years, thus studying being on some sort of hiatus – I just re-read a simple explanation of a concept from dynamical systems analysis, and found it very well put and easily understandable. I had never really understood the concept before.

So there are reusable coffee capsules now. Bleeding-edge tech. I have one of those as well, it's made of steel, called portafilter and has been around for ages.

Look at this dang turtle my coworker found in our parking lot

`grep` has parameters -A and -B for showing lines Before and After matches. I keep thinking they stand for Above and Below, though.

Today I finally looked up why the Master equation bears its name (, something I had wondered many times but never bothered to find out.

My left eye is twitching occasionally. This has been going on for several days now, and it's a bit annoying.

Privately, I love to hoard data, keep everything, make sure even my oldest hard disks are archived safely, and on occasion delve into data from ten, fifteen years ago. (Sadly, I didn't make an archive from the computer I had when I was six years old, though, so there's a natural limit here.)
