Hi, I’m Alex Antoszek.

This is my public space. I write, create art & share my notes on this site.

I used to write daily and publish a new post every day. But, after 683 days in a row, I’m done. I want to write better. And I need more time than just a day. You can read my old daily blog here.

Why In Search For Balance?

Balance is everything. Balance is my life philosophy. As I discover different philosophies, ideas for living, balance always keeps popping up. So that’s what I’m looking for.

Who are you even, dude?

I used to have a lengthy about page. Now I don’t. In a few words: a student, writer, creator, artist & community host from Krakow, Poland. Terribly minimalistic, passionately optimistic. Introvert who likes people. You can contact me here.

What I’m doing now

Covid Part 3: The Reckoning

Third wave is here. A lot of my friends caught COVID recently. Hunkered down in the house for now. Daily bike rides into the forest compensate for the lack of human contact.

Still dabbling with my studies. Think I’ll forego most of the lectures now. I can learn much faster individually. And still get feedback during office hours. They make me more tired than educated.

December was a whirlwind of emotions, events, thoughts. January was a good time to recover, but still I couldn’t find everyday peace. February was surprisingly good. My first month in 8 years without a smartphone was really satisfying.

Living a calm, relaxed, but meaningful and adventurous life is how I’ve been spending most of my time recently. I need to stay focused on the search, my most important task.

Less noise, more fleeting moments of peace.
