[8:27AM] I finally drag myself out of bed after the 3rd snooze – yeah, not really an early bird, and binge-watching 4 episodes of Queen’s Gambit until 2 AM yesterday did not help. Still, in my pajamas, I turn on my laptop and proceed into the kitchen to brew a coffee, a Turkish one, the only one that can get me going. While I wait for the water to boil, I check my calendar, email and Slack on my phone – I scroll through emails, and nothing seems to be urgent. Two invites for the meetings later this week, one for sync with my manager and one for a project takeover – I click accept – some general company news, internal hiring offer, course from Security (who doesn’t love those), two pull requests waiting for approval... I’ll deal with those later. On Slack, I skim briefly through a few unread chats but no urgent channels, so I decide to read them later in more comfort on my laptop.
