"Not a big advice giver, but under the circumstances. Don't wait around your life to happen to you. Find something that makes you happy, do it. Because everything else, is just a background noise." -- from George Mason (24, Season 2, Episode 10)
About me & the site
Hello there! You can call me writer13! I like to write about the some tech stuff (games, Linux, etc.), but I occasionally write about culture and health too. If you want to know more about me, check out the ABOUT page, if you want to write to me, see CONTACT. Here are some of the stuff I USE on my computer (aka the boring geeky stuff).
MICROBLOG is for shorter posts, many of them are just rants or just thoughts, that doesn't require a full page of separate bullshit. The LINKBLOG is for sharing me all kinds of stuff. Both are irregular things.
I revived my RSS, please subscribe if you want to read the latest blog post. Thanks!

52 books in 52 weeks
In 2022, I have started a long project. I used to read a lot, but ever since computers came into my life, they stole the attention from books. My aim is not just to read as many books as I can (with the minimum of one book per week), but also to reprogram my brain, and create greater focus.
Despite I finished this project early, I still add those book to the list I read that year:
Read / Watch / Listen
A new page about FASTING, first I share my short story, and I will add resources to help anybody who is interested. No I am not a doctor, just an individual who was obese/overweight most his life. sdf sdf sdf
I recently got into watch collecting. I currently have a black & bronze resin version of the Casio Royale (AE-1200WH-5AVEF), which I bought it for the utility, and a Casio A168WA-1YES, which I bought it for the look. My third watch is a Casio MRW-200H-4BVEF, which is the orange version of that line. The 4th and 5th one is the og. Casio F-91W and its grey variant. My 6th watch is the new AE-1500 with negative display (which is beautiful and readable). And the latest one is the Mission Impossible legend, the Casio DW-290, wore by Tom Cruise in the first movie.
Looks like a saying is true: one Casio will never be enough. Hahahha!
My dream watches at the moment: a square G-Shock and the CasiOak (GA-2100 series). I am not really an automatic watch guy, probably because they are out of my reach, price wise, so I don't even dream about them.
