  1. If you have a pull up bar and a band you can also use it like this: (would wrap it around the hips, so that you don't sag)
  2. It's an amazing feeling. So I thought about planning everything out for the rest of the year and start to create content for everything. Will be fitnesstrainer/nutritioncoach/artist (thought about selling prints etc)/game developer and maybe writer So excited! Have to make a business plan so that I can try to get a "founder's grant" for my business. Until then figuring out what exactly I'm going to do (trial and error), make the websites ready, learn a lot etc. I think I will join the next 5 week challenge for all that. So I will sign the contract next week and from August on I'm released from (going to) work. BUT since I still had 23 vacation days (which will be offset (? or cleared?) with the release time) and I don't have much else to do, I took 12 vacation days and just will be "working" on the mondays this month. That's so great. Offboarding (give back the hardware etc) will be on 31th July. That means: only 3 workdays in July for me. Niiiice.
  3. Second try for a game (Module 7.3 from the course)
  4. And it went better and better the last days. There will be a high severance pay (I could probably live on it for 3-5 years). My employment contract will be increased again to full-time (so there will be more money the next months and also the severance pay will be higher + the unemployment benefits too), but I will be released from work from August on, i.e. I don't have to go to work until the termination (31.12.), but I will still receive a salary. The severance pay is paid either on 31.12. or on 31.1., whichever is more favourable for tax purposes. I will also receive the bonus for this year in May 2021. From January on I will try to get a foundation subsidy from the government (which would be 60% of my last salary + 300€ for 6 months. In the last week since I had the interview, I have already received (without having done marketing) 3 requests for nutritional advice. I also signed up for the Crossfit Level 1 Coach course in September. I talked to a coach friend of mine who has a similar history to mine, who now trains rich people (as a personal trainer) and gave me some tips. Maybe we will "team up" soon, let's see how it goes. I have been sleeping like a baby at night since the meeting. I can't even remember the last time I had that. I feel (finally) so good again, I can't really believe all this.
  5. Meeting went well, my song of the day: DOBBY IS A FREE ELF!
  6. Wow, what hell of a day. No meeting today, was stuck in traffic for 3hrs (at 33°C/91°F) because of a truck accident. Had to postpone to tomorrow 1.30pm (CEST). As video call @Tobbe I will be hired as a trainer in the crossfit box I already train in. Have to pay for the surgery myself I "just" have stage 1 and the government only pays for it when it's stage 3. But I don't wantt to wait until then, want to do it as early as possible (less risks, less costs etc). It's this course: https://courses.gamedevunlocked.com/p/game-dev-unlocked/ David also has a youtube channel, this is the video that convinced me: Already developed the 5 min game, that was really fun You'd pay for the painting? 100 € and it's yours And thank you for all the lovely words
  7. @ZachPSU Thank you They can't fire me with a normal notice because we have a protection until 2022. But they need to cut about 1500 people (I think about 500 are left that need to be... removed) so they can suggest a termination agreement with a compensation. I am working there for 5 years now, it won't be a lot (gross amount would be a middle five-figure, net would be around half of it) but it's better to (again) lose my health there or resign myself and get nothing) and with unemployment benefits it would last me some months, maybe more than a year. And then I have finally the freedom and energy to get my self-employment going. I am not sure this tree is happy, but hey, at least it's a tree with some happy little cloud friends
  8. Heyho After @Tobbe wished me a happy birthday, I thought about coming back again and maybe doing a challenge but I think that would not work, so I give you here a quick overview of the last months - I am now Nutrition COach and Fitnesstrainer. Will get my Crossfit certificate in July and work in my Crossfit box from September on. - I have a(?) lipedema and want to have a surgery for that (the earlier the better) and have my first appointment (to talk about costs and what they will do) on 7/7 and two more end of august and end of september. - I am at work again since start of Feb (first 2 weeks for 2 hrs, next 2 weeks for 4 hrs,....) and fully working since mid march. I still hate it but I doesn't stress me out that much anymore (thanks therapy!). My greatest wish was to be fired with severance pay and tomorrow I have a meeting with HR "regarding my future caree". Wish me luck that they do what I wish for, that would be the best thing that could happen to me right now! (But I think this is the only option left for them to do now, there are not that many other possibilities for this meeting) - Today was my last day of therapy. I loved it. 10/10 would recommend a therapy, for everyone! - I started game developing with a course (Game Development Unlocked) and a community and already developed a small game. It is a lot of fun! And my hobbies don't stress me out, since I don't have the "urge" to make everything professional or make money with everything. - I painted a Bob Ross as I always wanted: - I was at 81.6kg, the highest I have ever been (ok, it's a lot of muscle I grew the past months) at the end of April. Until then I lost 5kg without tracking or sth, I was done with all that stuff and counting calories but "just" IE worked great for me. - I have a moderate scoliosis and now I am not sure, if I can do (heavy) weightlifting anymore. But that's fine for me, there are a lot of sports I'd like to try. Shoulder is somethat okay again. - I am finally happy again. I have a lot of RL and some communities for game dev, painting etc. and I am not sure, if I can post here daily/weekly, but I will try to read you threads from time to time And maybe, if my wish comes true, I have more time from July (or so) on
