Rolandas Barysas
Hello, my name is Rolandas Barysas.
I work as a software engineer, making my own projects and doing freelance work on the side. I made Decent Budget to manage my own finances, but it's open for everyone to use.
This website is my only presence on the internet. I have accounts on some other platforms, but I don't engage in those except for work. I don't use social media.

On work

I enjoy working alone (or with a small number of people). I'm an introvert, so a lot of communication is tiring for me. Days when I get most stuff done are quiet.

I've been working remotely since day one. I wouldn't trade it to anything.

I try to be self-sufficient in most situations. This is how I got into programming—I didn't want to ask someone to make a website for me, so I learned on my own.

I have mixed feelings about the internet these days. I love the opportunities it presents, but I feel uneasy about privacy violations and addiction economy. With my work I hope to contribute to the former rather than the latter.

On life philosophy

My life choices are built around the idea of slow and stress-free living. This is why I work only for myself, avoid conflicts, do no multitasking and focus on the long term. I always try to prepare for the worst (stoic principles feel close to heart).

Every day I go for a walk for at least an hour. It's good for the body and good for the mind. It also makes time to go slower.
