Today I saw for the first time videos of the riots and police violence that currently prevail in the USA. It makes me very sad to see these pictures.
For example, I also saw a video of a 75-year-old man being knocked over by police officers. He lands with the back of his head on a hard stone, blood quickly collects under his head, but nobody cares about him. I do not understand such images and many others. What is wrong with this world?
On Twitter I read a disturbing comment about it:
These are pictures taken in broad daylight while everything was being filmed. What would happen at night without a camera?
Just the thought of it makes me shudder.
I just quit my web space. I officially no longer have any paid web space. Only 3 paid domains left, which in 1 case is related to Micro.blog. I have noticed in the last days & weeks that I have neither desire nor time to care about a webspace or specially installed software. So there is nothing more with self hosted. I trust in services. This may be stupid (in a way), but on the other hand there are countless alternatives to what I need online. The only thing I MIGHT run out of is a web space for web design projects that I could put on it before they went live for clients. On the other hand, from now on I just put them on some free webspace with advertising, fuck it. I don’t do that much anymore anyway. What I still have: An own domain for our e-mails (for the family), postedlife.com for my micro.blog and dominikhoecht.com (hosted by carrd.co) for my little web business card. As I said, I don’t have the time and desire for more. I am a family man. I have 2 little daughters. THEY need my time. And I NEED them and my wife. They are the center of my life. It’s something I’ve had to learn for years, but luckily I’ve learned. Web projects are great, but family is more great and irreplaceable.
One month without push-ups… I still made the same number as usual. The following hurts: chest, arms, wrists, stomach, neck.
I went to the furniture store today. Kitchen plan, over 3 hours of mouth and nose protection. Result: Headache. Funny though: On the parking lot you always had to leave a space free for the next car. I didn’t know that otherwise also cars would get infected with Corona…
Father’s Day hike today. But with my wife, the children and grandma and grandpa. It was very nice!
I have just the hair length where the tips sting in the eyes or tickle the ears. Hang in there Dominik, soon they’ll have outgrown it!
Building a house was the biggest mistake of my life.
Wait A Minute, Doc. Are You Telling Me You Built A Time Machine… Out Of A DeLorean?
Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to unpack my Playmobil DeLorean yet. It arrived yesterday and since then the box has been standing in the corner untouched.
Will close my other german blog about media, music, movies soon. Don’t have enough time for it. I will focus on my Micro.blog. I like my mix of personal, media & tech.
My Corona Look. In general, I have the feeling that masks have become fashionable, right? All the kids are wearing them outside too. Mine is made by a very good friend. Like!
Just ordered this beauty: PLAYMOBIL Back to the Future 70317 DeLorean 😍
My nephew called me today. On his smartphone, the Google Play Store hasn’t worked in three weeks. The Google Chrome doesn’t work either. HELP! So I went there, picked up his phone, tapped Play Store, it worked. I feel a bit like God already.
Oh look. Snow.
Searching a 14 inch bicycle for my 3 years old daughter. IT HAS TO BE PURPLE!!! It has to be available. It has to look modern, not too childish. Simple requirements. Not. It’s nearly impossible to find something like that (available) in Germany.
I have once again revised my NOW-page. After nearly 2 months. Sorry for the long waiting time. With the update I also went a little bit into my current emotional state.
Now, don’t get excited! I went to the hairdresser today. The cut is fresh, gray hair dyed. (I’m getting old..) And you know what? It was nice, it was liberating, it was just fun. My hairdresser is a really great guy. FU Corona.
House building sucks. 🏡 🤦 🤬
Had a great time with my kids today. Out for a walk. 📷
Maybe I could just grow a mustache 🤔
So, this is my new (I haven’t been to the barber in a long time) longer hair look. What do you think? I kind of like it. But just me. My wife doesn’t like the long hair. My mom doesn’t like it either. lol
Am I the big loser and fool or a winner (which doesn’t feel like it) if I follow the Corona rules? Slowly but surely I’m getting upset that I follow all the rules, but half of the population doesn’t. On the other hand, I can’t manage to act “normal” either.
The new road traffic regulations in Germany are great. If you drive 21 km/h too much in the city, you will loose your driving licence for 1 month. Not that I intend to drive so much faster, but you know what it’s like: One moment lost in thought and the speedometer goes wild…
Corona daily: The duty with the mouth nose protection for shopping already works wonderfully and exactly as expected. Now nobody keeps the safety distance anymore. Thank you.
Corona daily II: My nearly 3 years old daughter plays the following with her Playmobil figures: She puts them further apart and says: “Keep your distance!” I am a little bit proud because she understands and sticks to it. On the other hand it makes me terribly sad.
