It's been close to three years since I started writing. Since the beginning, the main goal has always been to improve my writing skills and it just so happened that I had a lot of things to write about in 2017.

These days, it's been pretty hard to keep up with writing since I have a different lifestyle. It's very different from before but not in a bad way. Now I have a lot of time to do a lot of self introspection, improve my skills, and think about long term goals.

After starting my recent obsession with online privacy, it made me reflect a lot about my online presence, again... and so I started a cleanup process. First I got rid of my insecure online/offline applications and devices. This was intense, but I ended up finding privacy conscious alternatives for just about everything, and now I'm almost 100% g00gle and f@cebook free! This includes getting rid of wh@tsapp.

Why did I start doing this?

Well, I really don't know exactly why, but I had already removed f@cebook. Wh@tsapp was just the icing on the cake after being bombarded with dangerously targeted ads on my phone.

After wiping out wh@tsapp, it felt so good, so I just kept deleting.

So, let's backtrack a bit

Why should I keep writing? Well, I would like to keep connected with some of my friends and this beats social media. But do I really want it open to the public? Yes and no.

I think I found a middle ground. My friends can know it's me, but the public doesn't. Anonymity!

It all comes back full circle

My interests have gone back to technology after going through a crazy ride figuring out the emotional side of human beings. This time around, I think it'll be a much healthier relationship with technology since I'll have the betterment of the universe as the main driver.
