It feels so weird writing about something unrelated to the war in Ukraine right now. This tragedy that is happening next to the country where I was born and where most of my friends and family live. And I know that Romania is in NATO and Russia won’t attack NATO countries, but war is a terrible and chaotic thing, and you never know what might happen.
Life goes on however, and I cannot allow myself to be paralyzed by a feeling I have no right to feel. Innocent people are dying in Ukraine, and I feel sad here in my bubble, sems almost hypocritical, doesn’t it? I must confess that I wasted most of my weekend. Since the attack on Kyiv started, every morning I wake up and I dread checking the news. I fear I will read that Zelenski was captured and killed, or that Kyiv was levelled by a nuke. Then I try to go about my day, but every time I have to use my phone, I cannot stop checking twitter for news. And I scroll, and I refresh, and I scroll again and then it is time to bed.
In-between all that however, I decided to play with the header of my blog and the theme got broken. It is possible that I messed it up. It is possible that the theme is not compatible with the latest version of wordpress. Whatever the reason, my Home, About, Books, TODO and Quotes tabs were no longer visible, and something had to be done. So, I change my blog theme. I’ve had the previous theme for 15 years, and I liked it a lot, unfortunately its creator no longer maintains it, so it became desynchronized with the latest version of wordpress. (I think, I am still not sure it is not me that broke it really). Whatever the reason, here I am using the simplest team WordPress has to offer. I don’t particularly like it, but I don’t hate it either. I guess I just have to wait to get used to it.
For a few years I planned to write my own blogging platform, and this year, after I finish writing my latest book, I might actually do it. Especially since I am starting to work on a project on TypeScript at work, which will be quite fun.
I don’t know what else to write here, these days have been so draining, I am so disappointed in this world, especially in the politicians that seem to react too slow to what is happening in Ukraine. I mean Russians transport thermobaric rockets to cook people like in an air fryer and you are still in doubt about helping or not? It should be an easy decision to make
Stay safe, stay happy!
