Selim, morning run in Germany
I hope this message finds you well! I wanted to share some exciting updates from the weekend with all of you.
1. New Home in Bochum, Germany:
In an astonishing turn of events, we managed to find a fantastic rental apartment in Bochum, Germany, all within our first week of searching! We'll be moving in tomorrow, and the anticipation is truly exhilarating.
2. Tiago Fortes' New Book - 'The PARA Method':
I'm thrilled to introduce you to Tiago Fortes' latest book, 'The PARA Method.' This innovative system for personal organization has already made a profound impact on my life, and I can't wait to explore it further.
I've started listening to it on Audible, and I'm already finding valuable insights that have been transformative. For more information about the book and how it can enhance your own organizational skills, you can find additional details in the links provided below.

3. On the Run:
Just as I promised in my previous newsletter, I've officially kick-started my running journey. My plan is to alternate between running one day and walking the next. Stay tuned for updates on my progress from yesterday and today – I can't wait to share them with you.
4. Effective Altruism Conference in Berlin:
Mark your calendars for September 08-10, 2023! I'll be in Berlin for the upcoming EAGxBerlin Conference, where we will delve into the fascinating world of Effective Altruism. Effective altruism is a philosophy and social movement that advocates using evidence and reason to make the greatest positive impact with your donations, career, and actions.
My train tickets are all set, but I'm still on the lookout for a place to stay. If you have any recommendations or know of available accommodations, please don't hesitate to reach out.
5. Deutsch Lernen (Learning German):
I've recently embarked on a journey to learn the German language. On September 17, I have an appointment with the German Consulate to apply for a student visa. I'll be using Busuu as my primary learning platform and will be sharing my progress with you here. If you've been contemplating learning a new language or starting a fresh habit, I'd be thrilled to be your accountability partner. Just reply to this email or leave a comment below!
That's a wrap for today's updates. Thank you for taking the time to read, and I look forward to sharing more with you soon.
Until then, see you tomorrow!
