Work was solid today, but I chose more work over personal projects. Which is bad, because I have some things to do for IGDA.

I will try to climb tomorrow.

The first time-block of the day that belonged to my wife happened a year ago.

I plan on backloggind my missing past few days still, so I'll celebrate the anniversary of my first online timeblock then.

Tue Sep 25 06:44:38 UTC 2018

The minimum pomodoro rule continues to ensure I get a solid amount of work in. Between getting in late and various meetings, I needed to stay late to get my minimum. Getting my minimum, however, led to me finishing a task. Should be able to push it tomorrow, I think.

Skipped climbing today, as I was already late for work. Will try tomorrow maybe, but Wednesday definitely. Probably Wednesday, actually, as I want to finish backloggind missing days.

Personal projects return tomorrow. Have various time-sensitive IGDA things to deal with.

Tracking reading, listening, and watching will also continue tomorrow.

My first markdown timeblock was a year ago today. That's pretty crazy. It also hasn't changed that much. Maybe it's time to do a rethink.

Today was me crashing hard from a week that was too little sleep and too much work.

Most of today was cleaning up my PR. Was beating my head against the code for a bit until I forced a break with dinner and a nap. The nap really helped. Gots to take a step away and recharge.

I experimented with some caffeine today. It was interesting. Should definitely be a rare thing I do. I got in 15 pomodoros today but it felt less productive than that. There's definitely a point of diminishing returns that I should pinpoint, maybe.

At the same time, my work right now is dealing with legacy code and... well, that's a lot of beating one's head against the wall.

I am writing this late Wednesday night (or early Thursday morning depending on perspective). I got 8 pomodoros in "today". Not counting the solid 1.5 hours of work on the plane.

I have once again run into my "Call Think about Babuska, Grandparents, people who're gone".

I have two memories of father's father. Of Babuska's husband. Of my daduska.

One is on arriving at their home. I threw off my shoes and ran up the stairs. His smile greeted me as I reached the living room. He was sitting on the couch. I feel as though he was always wearing a suit.

The other is at Newark. Everyone was wearing suits there. Or dresses. It didn't really occur to me what was going on. There was a line. At the end of the line there he was. Eyes wide open, but vacant. Laying in a cushioned box. In his suit. This may have been my first understanding of death. There was a brief moment of shock and then I started weeping. My dad would later recall that it hit me suddenly.

I remember my babuska speak of his last moments. He had asked for a glass of water and by the time she came back he was awkwardly unconcious in the chair. He died of a stroke.

My dad brought up his dad a few months ago. "My dad died too soon. He would have been so happy to see the men you and your brother have become. I think he saw how his kids turned out and died of heartbreak."

I didn't really know him, but his legacy is certainly a part of my identity.

I have regained Artisan Vegan Cheese from the library a month after having returned it... and right before a trip will take me away for 5 days of my 3 weeks I have the book. Right when I get back, I'll make some rejuvelac.

Mon Sep 17 05:44:26 UTC 2018

I have managed to avoid doing work-work the whole weekend. Which I believe was the right thing to do. As I've talked about before... somewhere, it is important to train myself to be good enough at doing things in the allotted time.

I will give an update on my status on slack tomorrow morning, make the appropriate goals and milestones for the week, and get things done.

My back was still hurting so I skipped out on climbing today as decided yesterday. I think it's good that I'll be taking a break from rigorous exercise this week.

Personal pomodoros this week have been amazing. After this pomodoro, I'll be at 40 for the week. That's my minimum work number! This happened, though, because instead of ambiguous goals, I had a game to get good at. But, these things aren't mutually exclusive. Work-work has its share of ambiguity, for sure. But I've made a game of it, regardless. I can do the same for personal work, for sure.

Which, when I get back from SF, Stephan, will be the goal.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this, but having a programmable keyboard is a game-changer. Macros wherever I want them! Windows has no keyboard shortcut for using the snipping tool, but with this keyboard and a bit of tinkering: Fn + P. It's something I set up while taking that pomodoro picture above. I may consider going even deeper with my automation (which I should've been doing anyway, but inspiration is always nice).

Lots of reading today. Might forget some things:

  • Film Crit Hulk's review of the 5th season of Bojack (he's got 9 episodes out so far)
  • Freethought Blogs | Pharyngula
  • Twitter (the usual suspects)
  • Various politics

My brain never particularly felt "broken", but having been at it a week and only now feeling somewhat functional.... I get the description.

I'm feeling confidant staying in it from now on, and less interested in being "keyboard bilingual".

I was thinking of doing work today, but I didn't. I did play around with Mixpanel the product, though. Which is good in its own way. I may devote some time to work tomorrow.

Back still complaining today. No climbing tomorrow. Will take a solid break during my week in SF.

I have hit sufficient speed to work in colemak. I still need to deliberately practice, as I'm still much slower than with QWERTY. But that will be outside of pomodoros. I think it is an excellent 5-minute break for between pomodoros.

Though maybe it'ii still get some pomodoros here and there. Need to start working on projects again, though.

I have finally beat the "shock-to-the-system" week. This week, I have achieved 52 pomodoros. Also, I have learned the dangers of taking my work home with me. It's nice that I have learned to be 100% productive at home, but I want a good balance. Especially since I am not immune to burn-out.

"Let's try to stop at a reasonable time tomorrow."

lol nope

Still addicted to the problem.

There's lots of layers to what I'm working on at work. The jist of it is: we have a lot of code that serves the same purpose. Tech debt run wild. Our team is taking ownership of a bit of this: the dropdown menus. Today I did some digging and found at least 4 instances of copy-paste menu code.

That's definitely not all instances. That's just the old, legacy backbone code (new stuff is in panel). I'm thinking of doing additional work tomorrow to properly document all this.

Hurt myself climbing today. Minor back whining. Depending on how I feel tomorrow, I may skip climbing on Sunday.

Colemak is going really well, I think. I'm at around 30 WPM. Though I enforce 100% accuracy and 40 WPM in my typing app (Amphetype).

Increasing how fast I need to be by 5 WPM per day. At 40, I notice I really have to decrease thinking about where the keys are.
