I never told you the whole story behind the scene. The environment I’m working in and so on. So, welcome to my place. 🙂
I live in a tiny rented apartment, I can’t really afford on my own. I live out of a social aid completely.
My living environment is pretty great for the first time in my life though.
I help around a lot. Even though I work only as a volunteer, I’m never hungry or without clothes.
I have many second hand clothes and other things that can be reused. I have lived like this since ever.
When I was in primary school, I worked with workbooks which were used by some other kid already.
My mom erased the writings with a Tipp-Ex, because we couldn’t afford the basic school materials.
I financially supported myself for as long as I could. I can do many things, but I can’t do as much as most of the companies expect from people (officially waiting for working rehabilitation or even retirement).
I think we’d need to redefine the working expectations as a society. Many people are too exhausted already. I don’t know what needs to happen for things to change, but I hope they eventually will.
I don’t have a car, nor do I have a driver’s license. I can’t focus on the driving and watching for the signs and so at the same time.
I could somehow push through to get a license, but I’d be quite a dangerous driver, so I quit.
I actually love to move around and luckily I live in the city, so I have everything I need in the palm of my hand.
Many people look a bit down at me because of that. I don’t like this, but I’m getting used of it.
It’s the same as it’s with diagnoses. You’re so easily less of a human. But that’s ok.
I’m slowly learning that this is not my problem, but rather other people’s.
You can’t change the world, but you can change yourself and your own point of view.
My work is mostly done on my 10+ years old PC, which is in even worse state than my mind. I brought it back to life a couple of times already.
I have such passion for technology that I’ve learned to fix computers too. Not just my own, my family and some friends rely on me for that matter.
I can do wonders with old machines (also working on Linux), but it takes much more time. Especially when you work with graphic materials.
I do more and more work on my cell phone as well, but I could never afford the right one I’d need.
Thankfully, one of the companies helped me with the last buy, so I’ve updated myself to Xiaomi Redmi note 9. This is my 3rd Xiaomi phone. They offer very much even in the lowest price range, this is what I like the most.
So, when you see my sponsored link and imagine that I make a living out of this – this is just not it.
Many of you already know that I’m a huge photography enthusiast, so I’m really thrilled to do some test shots with this new gadget too.
And of course to record you a better so called podcasts. 🙂
I never wanted any ads on my blog, but I can’t do much more with my old equipment, so I needed to do this step. For me and for you.
I’m very grateful for all the support I get through Patreon and the support I received from the Mishop.si.
A special thanks goes also for all of the people who help me with material things and emotionally supporting me.
This last thing goes for some of you who support me through the comments too. <3
What about you, how does your relationship with technology look like?
Do you like it or are you using it just because “you have to”?
