Importing photos from the cameras onto my computer. Sync them all up to the cloud. Don’t look at the pictures because my mind is on vacation-mode already.

Checking in for the flight online. Work our way through the required Covid paperwork. Submit the papers to the KLM. Receive a message back that we’ve done it wrong. Try again. Succeed. Pack my bags.

Watch cooking videos on YouTube with whatever time there is left in the day. Cuddle with the cats and simp about how much I’ll miss them.

Anyway, this man can use a break. Fortunately, that’s exactly what I’m taking the next two weeks. This streak of daily monologues can not end here though. So it won’t. At the same time, I also don’t want to burden myself with daily writing too much while I try to unplug. So how do I solve that?


For the next two weeks, I will continue my daily publications but will limit them to one word. I don’t know what that will do for my website’s SEO but that’s of lesser importance right now.

I might write a thing or two when I feel like it, I just don’t want to have the obligation to write anything at all when I don’t want to. Perhaps I’ll share a photo alongside the single word every now and then as well. Seems like a fun way to continue documenting without much efforts. We’ll see, we’ll see.
