Most of my after work evenings are spent on relaxing but maybe once or twice a week I do side projects. So you are not alone. But still, being dead tired after work should not be considered a default feeling. I would recommend trying to "optimize" that. For example with shorter workdays if possible, naps, longer sleep, better sleep, mb better food? Etc.


22:00 to 23:30: Me time. This is reserved for side projects, hobbies, watching tv, relaxing, or going to bed early if i want.


My days are usually somewhat like this

08:00 to 10:00: Wake up, breakfast, take care of daughter, play, prepare her for morning nap
10:00 to 12:00: Daughter (hopefully) naps. Time to do home related chores and projects. Or take care of myself (shower, nap, etc).
12:00 to 14:00: Lunch, play with daughter.
14:00 to 18:00: Go to my office. main job
18:00 to 20:00: Dinner. Play with daughter and help with getting her to bed.
20:00 to 22:00: Back to the office for main work.


in my case, very careful time management and I guess "body management" (make sure I get enough sleep, food ,etc).

@switchingsocial @Jordi_Tell @kezzbracey PocketBook sounds really nice, but I can't really find any information on it being open source? Or did I misunderstand the conversation?

Also, probably hard to acquire in my country (no amazon here, and expensive to import stuff), so that might make it difficult. :/

@greenblue@chaos.social @kezzbracey @switchingsocial Using Replicant or something similar sounds pretty nice, although I doubt I'll be able to find a used e-ink tablet which Replicant supports in my country. :/

Thanks for pointing out that possibility though.

Oh nice, Kobo is still going strong? I remember seeing it mentioned as a good alternative several years ago. Good to hear that

What are some good and more open (and linux friendly) Amazon Kindle alternatives out there?

Been using trackballs and other ergonomic mice for years now. Decided to get a Logitech MX518 for games though. Used it for couple of hours today and got some really painful RSI for the first time in years.

I guess my trackballs were working better than I expected.
