Week in review: 23 – 29 January 2017

I know it’s already Tuesday and this review is about last week. I am very late. To be honest with you this last week I have felt mostly paralysed, which is also the reason why I didn’t post anything here. One shocking piece of news after another was published, and also all around me there was a subdued mood. But now I feel it’s time to compose myself, leave the computer games I’ve played to distract myself alone (although: “Alien Nations” is as much fun as it was 15 years ago), and get back to my active normal day life (I mean I worked as usual, it’s just that I rather withdrew during the rest of the time). From tomorrow on I am participating in 28 days of blogging (like I did last year [here]). So you can expect me to write so much more from now on.
