I need a job. Any computer touchers at a tech company hiring for a remote copywriter position? I can maybe be your girl!

Now pay close attention to that second thought, because this might be the one that will actually help in your current situation and context.

For example:

When I thought about an unwritten publication I wanted to publish as one of my “aliases” because I saw fit. But after a little of sitting on that idea, I let it die, and the thought that followed was the better one, the one I needed: it was the right alias for the context.

When you’re impulsive, you’re inclined to immediately do what comes to mind, without forethought and without considering the consequences.

As an impulsive person myself I know that the first thought is often a trap.

When you meditate you let your “cloud thoughts” pass by and leave for good.

Allow your first thought to develop until you get excited about it.

Then, let your first thought pass away.

Your second thought is on the way already.

We experience life in lived moments and experiences.

But why, oh why, has it become a custom to gift material objects (things) instead of giving away experiences to the ones you love and care about?

“Read and Write Persian 🇮🇷 Language in 7 Days” is a helpful workbook and a short 7-part YouTube series by Reza Nazari

I only recently found out about it on:
learnpersianonline.com

You can watch the free YouTube tutorial at:
LearnPersianOnline.com/7days

I’ve only started reading the book, but my first impression is good.

I had purchased the PDF version, but I might get the proper physical book as well; we’ll see.

Another quick question for people who speak and write in languages other than English: Do you get upset when people use translation software to reply to your posts if they are not native speakers/writers? Why or why not?

If y'all could boost this post so that I can get more responses from people who speak/write English and at least one other language, that would be great! #CommunityDevelopment

UPDATE:

Forget what I said about using ZoneEdit to have a DNS Provider for my domain aklu.ge!

Namecheap reached out to me via Twitter* and they made me aware of their FreeDNS service for domains that were not registered with them.

Cool! Great. Convenient, since I am a Namecheap customer, and money saved 🤑.

What I ended up doing was finding a DNS Provider, ZoneEdit zoneedit.com was my choice, based on what Pete Keen wrote on his blog: petekeen.net/how-i-run-my-own-

i guess i was spoiled using Namecheap to manage my domains and adjust DNS records

For my old website alexanderkluge.org I now bought a new, much shorter domai, aklu.ge, the TLD representing Georgia, the country in the Caucasus region.

Trying to find a .GE domain registry, I chose WorldBus: worldbus.ge

What I didn’t know is, they don’t allow you to edit DNS records (type A, type AAAA, etc.).

How do I overcome this hurdle, my tendency to procrastinate projects that are close to my heart, whereas with client work I can just do it without (much) procrastination?

Any (mental) tips?

I respect any pacifism, I respect any attitude, but it must seem cynical to a citizen of Ukraine 🇺🇦 to be told to defend himself against Putin’s aggression without weapons. This is out of time.

We will not allow borders to be moved and territory to be conquered by force here.

We are in solidarity with the citizens of Ukraine 🇺🇦 who are defending their own country.

They are under attack from a big neighbor; a country that invades the other. Russia has no business in Ukraine 🇺🇦. I call on the Russian President: Let the weapons be silent! Withdraw your troops! Respect the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine 🇺🇦!

Wir werden nicht zulassen, dass hier mit Gewalt Grenzen verschoben und ein Territorium erobert wird.

Ich fordere den russischen Präsidenten auf: Lassen Sie die Waffen schweigen! Ziehen Sie Ihre Truppen zurück! Respektieren Sie die Souveränität und die Unabhängigkeit der Ukraine 🇺🇦!

Ich respektiere jeden Pazifismus, ich respektiere jede Haltung, aber es muss einem Bürger der Ukraine 🇺🇦 zynisch vorkommen, wenn ihm gesagt wird, er solle sich gegen die Putinsche Aggression ohne Waffen verteidigen. Das ist aus der Zeit gefallen.
