I am following the news daily to see what opportunities it can bring to me. I think with any big shift like this, it's when everything changes and I want to be in a position to take advantage of that, rather than being stuck where I am.
I was playing around with coding last year, as I used to code as a kid, but hadn't really done anything since and the whole 'app' thing flew past me, I started to realise that I would be quite behind in anything I did and would take me a few years to get up to speed, if I wanted to build apps, I would be competing against those with a huge amount of experience, now i've seen AI taking hold, that it can do some coding etc, it seems to me the bigger oppurtunity lies in following and learning how to use these tools to profit.
(Not that I don't feel like working, I'd work until 80 or so, more like worried about not finding things over the age of [redacted]. Having a family means your monthly burn is 5X-10X instead of X.. you can't just live on ramen for 2 years, there are expectations, etc)
Tech bros: Let's use AI to get rid of jobs!
People: That's not what I meant!
Tech bros: You're welcome.
Also tech bros: Why are there so many layoffs? Is there a recession?
I have classes with a tutor 2 times a week. I think German is a bit harder for me to learn comparing to English, the main issue is active vocabulary. I regularly check different approaches how to learn the language faster. So far, Anki and reading the literature I both like and can comprehend at my level are the best techniques.
It's so rewarding though. You really get to appreciate Germany on a deeper level.
The "How to talk so kids will listen" is a great series of books.
