The end of the year is close. It is now the month of festive and the holidays are here. People would spend their time traveling to places they have never been to check off their bucket list. Which is what my family is doing right now. Usually I would be joining them in this journey but this year I will be left home alone. Which is what I am looking forward to.

Being home alone is actually the best part of my life. There is peace in the house, no kids running and playing around, no one will be asking to do this and to do that. It is basically heaven for me.

Whenever there are people in the house, it will be hard for me to focus on my work. Be it my side project or my full time job. So since they have left, I will be using this time to be at my best to do my work.

It has been only four days now since my family left for a vacation but why do I have this feeling that being alone now is not for me. I am feeling that I miss the sound on noise, the sound of my son running and playing around the house and the sound of my wife asking me do to all types of things. I miss this moment. 

Come to think of it, I don't think I could last that long being alone. Hearing the sound of bird chirping and the rain pouring is really peaceful, but it is too peaceful that my productivity is actually slowing down. I now can't wait for the holidays to end and my family to be back home.

      @wernminlim @lucjah people are so interesting isn't it!!! :P It's so cool to read thoughts from people who don't pretend to be different or try to sound smart. It's just about problems or ideas we all can relate to.

      @wernminlim @basilesamel Thanks for the 80% and looking for potential problems! I got hooked a few days ago, doing... more less the same :-))) reading stuff and... looking for problems. I love looking for problems, not many tools to help the ones here though :p

      And, so... considering problems:

      I wrote this post 3 times, realising Im replying to the wrong message or the wrong person, For me it would be easier if the comments were in a "classic" style - new ones at the bottom. Because here it goes up, but then the thread goes down, but then... a new comment is up again

      so would it be something i can ask about/suggest on Slack?

      I tried to check there if it was already talked about, but haven't found anything

      I suppose im making problems now ...

      yea... i did it again, wanted to add smt and... @basilesamel already replied :D
