Dailies

Tue, Feb 9, 2021 One-minute read

I am trying out a few daily activities at the moment:

Every morning, I am adjusting my alarm clock to the sun. If the sun rises one minute earlier, my alarm goes off one minute earlier as well. I will probably stop this once I have gained the hour needed to offset the Daylight Savings Time on 28. March 2021.

Also, in the mornings, I practice my handwriting in the old German script called Kurrent. That is mostly to get better at reading old documents and letters. It is also fun to do something a little ‘artsy.’

At some point during the day, I write my daily blog post postcard. This daily is a difficult task. I find it terrible to come up with ideas that are not boring and irrelevant. It is also hard to confine the posts to one postcard-sized paper – this post is also too long. Of my dailies, this is the only one I am pausing on Sundays.

In the evenings, I follow the bible reading plan from the Bible in a Year podcast with Fr. Mike Schmitz at Ascension Press.

At last, I have an alarm set 2 hours before I go to bed. This alarm tells me to stop working or using screen devices.
