What Happened [en]

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 12:37:18 +0000

[en] Beginning of October, I started working in Fribourg, with an hour of commute to get to my office. 45 minutes on the train. I decided to use that time to blog. And I did, to some extent. But not as much as I initially planned. What happened? A bunch of things: mid-November, Quintus was … Continue reading "What Happened [en]"

Some Podcasts to Listen to [en]

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 12:13:37 +0000

[fr] Des podcasts à écouter. [en] Here are some episodes I recommend you listen to. There’s more to say, about these, other stuff, and life in general, but it’ll have to do for today. By the way: if you use the Apple Podcasts app, like me, you probably also cursed the dreadful last update. Amongst … Continue reading "Some Podcasts to Listen to [en]"

They Chose Tears [en]

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 18:27:50 +0000

[fr] Aimer un animal, c'est choisir les larmes, parce qu'on sait qu'on va le voir mourir. [en] 7 years ago today, Bagha. In less than two weeks, it will be a year since Tounsi’s death. I don’t know how long Quintus has got. I hope it’s longer than I fear. I’m not big on the … Continue reading "They Chose Tears [en]"

Le ronron du vieux chat [fr]

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 06:02:10 +0000

[fr] Dimanche 23h Je voulais me coucher tôt, parce que demain sonnez clairons à 5h pour aller à Fribourg, après près de 10 jours de maladie. Mais je ne dors pas, parce que sitôt la lumière éteinte avec Quintus contre moi, j’ai fondu en larmes, parce que bien sûr, si je suis en train d’apprendre … Continue reading "Le ronron du vieux chat [fr]"

The Speed of Time [en]

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 07:06:01 +0000

[fr] Réflexion sur le temps au travail et le temps à la maison, les chats malades et l'hiver. [en] Routine is settling in. As I have mentioned, my time seems to be shrinking. Or speeding up. It’s a good sign when time flies by, but it scares me. I look at my colleagues, some of … Continue reading "The Speed of Time [en]"

Aimer écrire [fr]

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 06:00:15 +0000

[fr] Ça m’est venu hier dans une discussion avec une collègue: j’aime écrire, mais comme moyen d’expression. J’aime mettre par écrit des choses qui sont dans ma tête. J’aime m’exprimer par écrit, “parler” par écrit, réfléchir par écrit. La rédaction pure, prendre un contenu arbitraire et le mettre en forme par écrit, collecter des infos … Continue reading "Aimer écrire [fr]"

Time Tired [en]

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 06:10:54 +0000

[en] Time is catching up with me. It was to be expected. As novelty and excitement starts to wear off, a more sustainable rythm needs to be found. I’m starting to feel tired. That’s what I’m paid for, my dad would say. Not badly tired, just, tired. So I’m being careful before I need to … Continue reading "Time Tired [en]"

Un chat c’est CHF 2000.- par an [fr]

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 06:05:27 +0000

[en] A rough calculation based on the 20 years of cat-life in my home tell me that in Switzerland, one should budget roughly CHF 2000.- per year and per cat, food and meds included. It's an average. But knowing this might help us see less people in Facebook groups saying they won't spay their cat … Continue reading "Un chat c’est CHF 2000.- par an [fr]"

Lutter vainement [fr]

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 06:12:47 +0000

[en] The fight against self-scanning systems in supermarkets is... useless. [fr] Cet article devrait être un long article. Et je suis presque en train de ne pas l’écrire à cause de ça. Je repousse. Je suis un peu trop mal réveillée dans le train pour exposer clairement une problématique complexe avec plein de ramifications. Alors … Continue reading "Lutter vainement [fr]"

36h54 [fr]

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 05:47:55 +0000

[en] There is a large chunk of my time that I don't "own" anymore, as it is my employer's, in a way. It's making me reflect on how I did or didn't protect my working time as a freelancer, and how that is indicative of my priorities regarding earning money vs. "social obligations". [fr] Aujourd’hui, … Continue reading "36h54 [fr]"
