Like last week, the goal this week is 10 work pomodoros per day. I'd like to eventually meet an average of 12 work pomodoros per day, or 60 work pomodoros a week. I don't know how realistic that is, however. 10 should be quite doable. I managed 10 yesterday (bringing my rolling week count of pomodors to 44), and I think I should manage 10 today.

More than 10 should be very doable tomorrow, as there's no meetings and I plan to work from home.

Fridays also have a tendency to have no meetings (for me), so more than 10 should be doable then as well.

Thursday may be hard. There'll be an all hands, an interview lunch, and a quick meeting. It's not just the time that these things eat up, it's the distraction insertion that is sometimes hard to recover from.

In any case, it's time to bus to work.

Dream:

I was at a house that doesn't exist. Some mutation of my aunt's house, I think. My family's dog, Daysha (who has been gone for a couple years now), whined to jump on the bed and lay down next to me. After a bit of petting her, I realized it was a dream (because she isn't alive anymore).

I exhibited more control during this lucid dream than I ever remember having in the past. I conjured a bike at some point and was doing stuff outside for a while. I don't remember much of anything past this point, however. A lot of the dream has evaporated.

Got a solid 10 pomodoros in at work today.

....

On a bug that a customer uncovered in my implementation.

....

Which is awesome because customers are using the stuff I worked on!

Determination intensifies

Climbing went well today, but if the smoke continues to fog the city, I may want to avoid climbing come Wednesday.

Did an IGDA meeting with a chapter today. Went well. I have a long way to go.

No reading today.

No listening today.

Watching today:

I'm going to try reading the Pragmatic Programmer whilst winding down for sleep tonight.

A year ago, I started working on my "Japaense study helper" idea. It didn't get very far. This is relevant, as I'm going to start working on this project again.

Timer remake... eh. Now that I don't want to spend personal project time using panel, I feel the need to start over... again.

Hmmm.... But I need to practice finishing, and I will use the updated timer if I get it to a working state.

If I continue to not do things, I will abandon the project come October, but until then I will try to devote some time to the timer remake and finish it using the stuff I'm already using (aka panel).

The numbers are in for how much Quakecon cost me and it was... $3,186.86.

Ouch? Not bad? This is my first time actually tracking this spending so I don't know. Let's break it down:

CATEGORIES: SPENDING

  • Air fare: $898.80
  • Hotel: $760.50
  • Rentals: $515.00
  • BYOC: $177.32
  • Food: $142.96
  • Swag: $138.00
  • Lyft: $136.12
  • Games: $65.81
  • Coffee: $52.35

Rentals I overspent by $150 by renting a big screen and... not being able to use it. Hotel could've been cheaper, but then I would've had to return Sunday night. Air fare... could've been bought earlier or with proper paying attention or with attempting to use points. BYOC costs are not negiotiable by me. Swag was worth the cost (even if a bit pricey for a mug and two hoodies). Lyft includes:

  • Home to airport: $34.06
  • Airport to hotel: $18.96
  • Hotel to walmart: $16.65
  • Walmart to hotel: $11.08
  • Hotel to airport: $19.03
  • Airport to home: $36.34

Technically, the lyfts for food are food expenses? Maybe I should mark it as such?

In any case, improvements will be made next year on rental costs. Swag will also probably be less costly (though no promises). Game purchases are part of the fun of Quakecon and if anything I should expect to spend around $100 (aka allow more spending if the situation calls for it).

Coffee and food could probably be improved on. Hotel could be improved by $165 by leaving Sunday night. However... flights on Sunday cost more so it's a balance there. And leaving on Monday was nicely stress-free. It's worth considering whether or not it was worth it.

With better luggage, it'd be more reasonable to take public transit between my home and SeaTac airport, saving about $65.

Buying flights at a smarter time could easily be half as expensive (looking at cost of same flights now). Just waited too long.

Even with improvements, though, costs will probably be around $2500 minimum. This is useful information.

I think I'll make budgeting $300 for Quakecon each month throughout the year a part of my YNABing.

Mon Aug 20 04:02:46 UTC 2018

Noticed that the library hasn't kept tabs on the books I've checked out. So I've updated the various lists they do track for me with the stuff I've checked out (most of them went into a "Completed" list, but some aren't finished, so they're in "For later" or "In progress").

That took up a lot of time, so had to skip a bunch of the weekly review. That's okay. Better than nothing at all, and anything missed that's truly important will find its way back to me eventually. Though, I still want to be better at this going forward.

Part of being better is doing it, and part of doing it is making sure I want to do it, and part of that is it not being too cumbersome or time-consuming to do.

Reading today:

I'm quite enjoying the Pragmatic Programmer, Stephan. It has a list of goals that inspired the second bit of reading there. Those goals are (from page 14 within section "Your Knowledge Portfolio"):

  • Learn at least one new language every year
  • Read a technical book each quarter
  • Read nontechnical books, too
  • Take classes
  • Participate in local user groups
  • Experiment with different environments
  • Stay current
  • Get wired

Good goals to give a go. I was curious about Haskell and WebAssembly, but I'm willing to just dig deeper into TypeScript and React.js for "this year". Though what constitutes "this year", I'm not sure.

C++ and WebAssembly are also worth considering, I think.

Mon Aug 20 04:27:07 UTC 2018

Watched today: various things. A bunch of videos by an anime YouTuber called Mother's Basement. Nothing really worth singling out, though.

Mon Aug 20 04:29:59 UTC 2018

I'm more confident in my decision to abandon using panel for personal projects. I'll get the experience I need in it at work, where I can poke knowledgeable people more easily. I still don't want to abandon my timer remake, however.... So I shall still have the October deadline and do some thinking once I have IGDA admin stuff dealt with.

Last year, I had a super interesting nightmare.

I really like this line: "No one lasts long surrounded by their shadow."

Sun Aug 19 03:50:52 UTC 2018

Last month also had a dream, Stephan! I remember this one a bit. Upside-down boot hair is a vivid image in my head, and eating the food. "Worth it."

Sun Aug 19 03:52:14 UTC 2018

Last week backlogged. Nothing particularly noteworthy.

Sun Aug 19 03:56:55 UTC 2018

I discovered that the climbing gym has updated their color-scheme difficulty:

  • What was grey is now yellow
  • What was yellow is now red
  • What was green is now... green, but it covers a larger variety of challenges
  • Purple is now here... I think, and is meant to add more gradual curve to the challenge
  • What was red is now orange
  • ...

I don't really remember beyond that because old red was the most difficult I could do. Thus, the reason why red felt so easy two days ago was becasue it was easy. And also my first orange was me managing another red.

I'll get used to the colors, I'm sure, but it's going to be confusing for a bit.

Still, climbing is going well, could do two oranges and a bunch of greens.

I was going to do a weekly review today, but just didn't have the energy. Lots of YouTube instead.

Some browsing of twitter and stuff today. Probably not good for me, should've tried to be productive or been inside my own head, or played some video games.

No listening.

I worked from home today, and it went super well. I got in 12 work pomodoros (my goal was 11). I could've easily put in more time, but I forced myself to stop. I got the thing I was working on working, and put out a WIP PR to get feedback. The thing I didn't like about my solution is something that got pointed out, so on Monday I will work towards fixing the code so that part isn't necessary.

Specifically, this part of the solution was already present in the previous code, but it isn't necessary if the jade (HTML) and stylus (CSS) are carefully rearranged, I think.

I'll work on this no longer than one more day before moving on to something else, I think.

Forearms extra sensitive today. Typing really irritating the left one. Think it was the climbing yesterday. Should ware off as I get back into the groove. Will be climbing tomorrow morning for sure.

I've decided that IGDA will be the focus of my personal project time until the new school year stuff is dealt with. After that, I'm scrapping my timer remake and canceling my plan to work in panel and instead will work in some variant of react. I'm doing this for two main reasons: 1) react is everywhere (thus learning it is valuable), and 2) I'm not really digging into the workings of panel enough to justify it as side-project framework, especially considering only people at Mixpanel are familiar with it, so I would have to explicitly poke work-people about personal project stuff and... well, I don't want to do that.

I like poking my mentor about stuff, but after talking with him about it, it seems smarter to work on personal project stuff in something else. He likes preact, so I think I'll do that.

But I won't remake my timer... I don't think.

I'll think about what I'll be doing, exactly.

Maybe I won't even abandon panel.... I don't know.

Last week backlog complete.

Fri Aug 17 04:30:28 UTC 2018

Made my minimum of 8 pomodoros at work today. A lot of those pomodoros were exploration and discussion. Tomorrow, I'm WFH and going to focus on GTD. After today, I'm going to have to accept that I won't make 40 pomodoros this week. I think an average of 8 per actual work day is still very possible though. That's my new goal.

I climbed this morning. I had an internal battle with myself over whether to do it. I knew that climbing would make my pomodoro goal difficult if not impossible. I decided that climbing is worth giving priority, and sacrificing important personal maintenance to meet work goals is not healthy. I'm doing good work (I've been told as much). Yes I could do better, but some weeks will make meeting my metrics hard.

And I'm going to make my self-imposed minimum, I just wanted to surpass them. We can do that next week.

Anyways, climbing went super well. So well, in fact, that I think the new challenges were easier than their colors claimed. Usually I struggle on reds, but I could do a ton today, and even got an orange (first successful one of that color), and a purple (this one was way too easy and I think it was just the wrong color).

I'm glad I got some IGDA stuff in yesterday because I didn't have the energy for it today. Will try to devote some time to it tomorrow.

I returned Artisan Vegan Cheese to the library (and immediately put it on hold again because skimming proved its value and next time I get it I'll actually make some of the cheeses), and checked out the Pragmatic Programmer.

This had been on hold ever since my mentor recommended it. I'm excited to make some priority for reading it. My mentor calls it a classic.

I read some blogs and some twitter during my browsing block. Not as disappointed in myself as usual for doing that. Probably because it was well-contained. Still, though, let's not make it a habit.

No listening today.

Watching:

There was some other stuff last night whilst winding down, but not worth listing, in all honesty.

Fri Aug 17 04:42:08 UTC 2018

Now that I don't force a written sentence or two when reviewing my old posts, I've noticed that my review of the day will contrast with what I wrote about the previous day (and the previous week or month or year when it's relevant). I like that.

Anyways, end of day review done.

I have started a pomodoro, but am unsure what I want to do during this pomodoro.

I had planned timer remake time, but I had said that I'll start personal project stuff with a focus on IGDA work.

Which actually reminds me, there's a bunch of stuff not on this new computer that I need for IGDA. It's a good time to start transfering stuff over and/or redownload some things.

Welp, this is becoming an IGDA pomodoro.

Yesterday, I jumped right back into work and shipped 3 PRs. Today, I was told I got things done super fast and was asked to start working on something completely different.

Thu Aug 16 03:46:44 UTC 2018

Today was a half-day at work because there was an EPD offsite. Even so, I still wanted to make my 8 minimum. I ended up getting 5. Might be hard to get that 40 pomodoro count by end of Friday, but I still think it's a good goal.

Because of the foreseen half-day, I skipped climbing. Will climb every other day starting tomorrow until I'm back to a Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule.

Started on IGDA Student SIG stuff today. I'll be back to 1 hour Tuesday/Thursday, and 2 hours Saturday on that. School will be back in session in a lot of places soon, gots to process that properly.

I'd like to get back to my timer and get it MVP as soon as possible and abandon it in favor of my Japanese learning tool by October.

A while back, I brought my copy of Code Complete into work. Today, I found myself grabbing for it to illustrate how I was understanding a peer of mine over concerns about our codebase and what we should do about it.

It was surprisingly easy to find the specific illustrations I was looking for in the 1000 page book. I feel like maybe I should reread those sections where I found the illustrations.

No specific reading done today. I have redisabled the browser on my phone and am trying to get above 1000 imaginary currency in my site-blocker extension.

I put in headphones lately only to signal that I'm doing work and/or to listen to when my pomodoros end. No listening.

I was going to do a weekly review, but that doesn't make too much sense as I skipped the diary the whole week whilst at QUAKECON! The plan instead will be to backlog each missing day a week later to the best of my ability.

I can return to the weekly review this Saturday (upon failing to stay consistent with weekly review on Monday, and deciding that Sunday is a bare-minimum pomodoro-day).

August 10th, 2017: I live in Seattle and have Internet.

August 12th, 2017: I went to the Seattle Indies meetup for the first time.

August 14th, 2017: "I am a real adult again."

Today is my first year anniversary at Mixpanel.

A month ago, I discussed a lack of progress in improving my work pomodoros. I'm in a solid place now, though. 8 pomodoros minimum per working day since the shock.

Hoping for an average of 10 this week (to make my weekly number 40 even with having Monday off).

Wed Aug 15 03:47:45 UTC 2018

A week ago was my last entry in this diary. I was given solid feedback at work that I was properly transitioning into a badass. I also packed for QUAKECON.

Tomorrow, I'll recall as best I can last Wednesday. There was a rhythm to the days there, and also specific, timed events that'll anchor me. Even so, I'll forget things, and mix some things up.

That's fine, I just want to have a diary post each day this year.

Wed Aug 15 03:49:39 UTC 2018

Yesterday will be elaborated upon next Monday, I think. Though maybe come Saturday I'll finish backlogging all the days.

Wed Aug 15 03:50:09 UTC 2018

Work was solid today. Even with 2 hours of meetings, I got 8 pomodoros in (which is now my minimum number). I'm hoping to get 8 in tomorrow, and then 12 in Thursday/Friday. Why only 8 tomorrow? EPD offsite fun times.

I hope to be back to climbing tomorrow morning.

Personal projects should start again soon. First off I'll be jumping back into IGDA stuffs.

I woke up around 0800 and had some leftovers for breakfast. I then watched YouTube on my phone until other people wanted to hang out. I got as much packing as I could without the wife done. Then I went to the restaurant everyone else was having breakfast.

Shortly after arriving there, I noted that I wasn't done packing. "You know that checkout is at 11, right?" It was 1050. I did not know. I ran to the front desk and made sure that a slightly late checkout was all right (it was, my card would just stop working at 1100). I then went to the hotel and woke up my wife.

We packed in a half hour, and then hung out with another friend in the lobby.

At 1230, we lyfted to the airport, and then the wife and I got some vegan food after getting through TSA. Our flight was delayed, but not significantly. We arrived home around 1700. I unpacked and setup my computer. I also did some laundry.

I fell asleep around 2400.

Today was the last day of QUAKECON. The BYOC area shut down at 1700. I played PUBG and Quake Champions. I cooked sandwiches, potatoes and tofu, and heated up some waffles.

I watched the Quake Champions duel tournament to its finale. After collecting all my stuff into my hotel room, I watched a bit of the first Predator movie, and then watched a terrible Charlie Sheen movie where he plays an undercover cop in a motorcycle gang. Lots of fun ripping into the movie whilst we watched.

Afterwards, we watched the first episode of the Super Mario Bros. Super Show (which was terrible).

Fun times.
