My Life, My Rules

My name is Taner and I have been using the name tanerius for a very long time (over 20 years now). The format was inspired by a video game called Golden Axe. Ever since I've been trying to get "tanerius" on every platform i can :)

Anyways, I am software developer from Macedonia. I'm a balkan at heart and spirit. I have been living in Germany since 2020, which is the second thing in my life that I am most proud of. The first are my two kids Erin and Jan. I consider myself a very lucky and a happy person. I really enjoy what i do professionally. As a result, I sometimes also go to the toilet with a laptop. Although most call that being a workaholic, i consider it as a part of being happy with who you are and what you do.

Privately, I like working on my projects most of which I put on github. Leme know what you think!

Coming from a super mixed family, and being a bit of a language buff, besides the usual fun during free time, I am really invested in learning German and I love it. Working on my B2 at the moment. Hopefully the next time I update this page I will be thinking to myself... pfff what a noob! :)

I humble at how lucky I am to be where I am. I awe at the odds that it takes, for one to just be!

Earth is not flat;
vaccines improve our lifespan;
if you can't test it yourself and have it peer reviewed don't trust it and definitely don't believe in it;
Finally, question literally everything; Curiosity is what enables you to have such an amazing brain and not be eaten by other animals !
If you disagree with any of this, you are an idiot - but i would still defend your right to be one!

  • ♥ quote: "Please stop saying "You can't joke about anything anymore". You can. You can joke about whatever the fuck you like. And some people won't like it and they will tell you they don't like it. And then it's up to you whether you give a fuck or not. And so on. It's a good system. " - Ricky Gervais
  • ♥ books: "Sapiens" by Yuval Hariri and "God Is Not Great" by Christopher Hitchens
