What are your 'Link Types'?

Here is mine. I'd have never have guessed that I use 10 different link types in my Zettelkasten.

Link types

I must keep doing my best even though I'm a failure. My peak cognition is behind me. One day soon I will read my last book, write my last note, eat my last meal, and kiss my sweetie for the last time.
