Hi there, I'm Richard, a creative coder from the Netherlands currently living in Maastricht. After polishing my HTML and CSS skills in the Bay Area for almost ten years, I'm back in my home country.
On July 27th, 2019 I had a heart attack. Nine days later I underwent a six-hour surgery for a quadruple bypass. This changed my life drastically. I feel much better now ever since; I appreciate the little things in life and became interested in the Quantified Self.
The quantified self refers both to the cultural phenomenon of self-tracking with technology and makers of self-tracking tools who share an interest in “self-knowledge through numbers.” Quantified Self practices overlap with the practice of lifelogging and other trends that incorporate technology and data acquisition into daily life, often to improve physical, mental, and/or emotional performance. My Apple Watch is helping me with this task.
This is my spot on the web for my projects, musings, and anything else I want to write about or show the world.(portrait picture by Mark Brants)
Tracing my roots has been lingering in my head for quite some time now. A few years ago, I talked to my brother about our ancestors in the East. My dad was born in Yogjakarta, Indonesia, and all we know was that he came to the Netherlands by boat early
It seems that being behind on all the things you need to do has become (or perhaps always has been) a part of our essential human condition.
One of the biggest obstacles to sticking with a habit change, a new system, a goal, or a long-term project … is that we get disrupted.
Mindfulness has (amazingly, wonderfully) become quite a buzzword in the last decade or so, and for a good reason. It's powerful and can help us become more present, happier, more focused, and much more.
