What I’m doing now

This is a now page.

March 17, 2023, from Montreal, Canada.

Back from Guadeloupe

Still living in Montreal. Spent a month working remote from Guadeloupe from Christmas to the end of January with friends, including a week sailing around the nearby islands! ⛵️

Tried kitesurfing for a few sessions, making progress but there’s still quite some work until I can go upwind (the ultimate goal for me in kitesurfing).

We also got to climb with Fred from Gwada Grimpe, a very inspiring guy who moved from Toronto to Guadeloupe and opened the first climbing gym there, as well as and outdoor climbing association. We got to do a first ascent on a new bouldering route that we named Chéwi Chéwie, after the boat we sailed on in the beginning of the trip.


Left my job at Hookdeck at the end of December, and still working at Arcade. I was doing both (part-time) since August, and while this was a great challenge that gave me no choice but learning to be extremely efficient and productive in my work, it was also not sustainable long-term.


After I came back from Guadeloupe, I dedicated my free time to skiing, and in particular backcountry skiing with my new touring skis. I read Die With Zero recently and that made me much more eager to use my time and money for this kind of experiences, and especially do them while I’m young and in good shape.


As always, I strive to dedicate a portion of my time studying things that will improve my life and make me a better human being.

Currently, this involves the great Huberman podcast, where I already learnt a tremendous amount of information and tools that had a major positive impact for me, and I feel like I only scratched the surface.

I’m also curious about Jordan Peterson’s Maps of Meaning, and I’m studying his 2017 lectures on YouTube. That’s 27 hours of content so it’ll take a while before I get to the end of it. I’ve heard a lot of good things about his work, as well as a lot of bad things, and I feel like I can’t form my own educated opinion without properly studying the material first.

I aim to watch about 15 minutes of either of those every day, in a context where this is my sole focus, and I’m actively listening, and pausing in order to take notes and reflect on the matters (so this takes me much more than 15 minutes overall).

I also aim to read at least 30 minutes per day before bed, and I’m currently reading Epictetus’ Discourses.


With now a single part-time job, and while the ski season is slowly reaching its end here in Montreal, I’m able to dedicate a bit more of my free time to writing.

I’ve been silent on the blog since last August because my free time has been extremely sparse, and I’m looking forward to writing more now I have a more reasonable work-life balance.

While I was not writing, I kept accumulating blog post ideas and I now have a dozen of them to tackle! There’s some really cool stuff and I’m excited to share them soon.

What do you think of the now page?

This my first shot at a now page. Is it useful?

This is somewhat similar to the “year in review” posts I used to do, although I probably wasn’t supposed to write as much.

What I don’t like is that the content on the now page is ephemeral. It’ll be mostly gone the next time I update it. Maybe I’ll keep some kind of archive, although I’m not sure if that would really serve anyone.
