Not much updates. I finally finished reading The Institute. It was yet another breath-taking Stephen King novel. I must say that, the final thoughts and conversations were a bit shallow. That I believe King also realized and tried to put more thoughts around it to make it more dramatic. Honestly, the idea is already a challenging one. And I can't see any way around. If he had made those topics seen at the beginning, it might have a bigger impact on the reader, the impact that King wanted to highlight but it would also be a big spoiler. So, I couldn't have written it any better.

Ending a nice novel is a though thing. I can't start another one without an emotional break and I should let the thoughts sink in first.

I returned back to working on Sense22. My secret project. Things are progressing well. I should say that, modern C++ is much cleaner and makes things easier to work on. Especially algorithm std library is full of nice stuff.

Some small things that I lately do:

  • Meditations. They help me to clear my mind easier. Sometimes I find myself drifting into unconsciousness and dozing off a bit but that's okay. As long as I return back to myself and continue from where I left off.
  • I write often. Mostly personal thoughts and I keep them to myself. Or I share them with my therapist. But they help me to see through myself and my reasoning behind.
  • I started to write "the thing". Curious? Well drop me an email and I will share what I have written. I promise you that.
  • I am being more vocal. More "uncontrolled" with my expressions. And I feel more "empowered". For the first time, I enjoy being me.
  • And the feeling of loneliness. That's still haunting me. Creeping it's way into my soul. Making me feel cold inside. And lost. It's infinite. It's pure black.

Hey reader!

Let's play a small game! Can you solve this?
