Hello from Germany
I realised there's an 'Introduce Yourself' category in the forum, so I thought I'd say hello.
Now that I'm thinking about it, I can't remember how I discovered the Zettelkasten system. I only know that I somehow found it online a few months ago, while researching note-taking and study skills. I'm not originally from Germany, but I live here now, so the German-sounding name 'Zettelkasten' piqued my curiosity when I first saw it.
The reason I was researching in the first place, is because I knew I would start studying for a Masters in October of this year. My Bachelors experience was way too ad-hoc. I just didn't have a good system. Knowing that I wanted to have a much better experience studying for a Masters, I was determined to get a good note-taking and connection-building system in place before my studies started. After some reasearch, I realized that the Zettelkasten method was what I needed, and I've been using it actively for about a month now.
It's still too early yet to have many links between notes, but I'm starting to build a nice network, one note at a time.
The forum history has already helped me, both to understand the method and to get ideas for my own personal implementation. I look forward to future learning with you.
