What I’m doing now

This is a now page, inspired by Derek Sivers’ now page.

The state of things as of March 2020

Working from home everyday to help stop the spread of the coronavirus / COVID-19 in my town. I’m very lucky to be able to work from home and that everyone in my company is doing the same. I’m super thankful for those who are out there working, shipping, delivering, helping the infected patients, etc. Trying to stay inside as much as possible and doing all the preventive measures necessary to avoid contagion. I’m also lucky to not have my income affected by the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, so I’m trying to help as much as possible those affected by it in my social circle.

Working hard at Nuuvem building a new way to play mid-core and hardcore games on the browser, with a great and growing team.

Studying a lot about front-end technologies and techniques, focusing on Typescript and low-level frameworks.

Recently engaged to Carol and starting the long and scary process of wedding planning (which just got more complicated due to the coronavirus pandemic, but for now we’re still keeping all dates as planned — we’ll see how it develops).

Not cycling at all, struggling to come back to a routine and make time for exercise. Got fat and sad about it, but now I’ve gone back on a strict diet and plan to get back to cycling.

Trying to keep an (almost) daily journal (using Day One) to see if it helps with understanding myself better, especially over time.

Reading a lot of science fiction, going through the The Expanse series by James S.A. Corey (just finished book 6 of 8 released so far). I want to finish the books and then watch the TV series.

Current active podcasts I’m subscribed to, in no particular order: Naruhodo!, Office Ladies, Radiolab, Boa Noite Internet, The Important Thing, Reply All — and also a bunch of older or one-off shows.
