Last year, I just had enough energy to say that SF was a blast.

Sun Jun 24 14:53:54 UTC 2018

Last month, I started doing pomodoros again. Though I didn't put them in my timeblock as I do now.

I also finally made it so http://ksionda.me actually redirects to this diary instead of my never updated WIP page.

I've made progress on a lot of the goals stated in that post (pomodoro-tracking, personal Mixpanel project), and still have a lot of work to do on other goals (dogfood projects in Mixpanel I'm still not using).

Last year, there wasn't a post, but I had what I would later call a "religious experience" in SF. I had an interview with Mixpanel, followed by hanging out with my friends, and getting some good food. I then took a red-eye flight back to Indiana, where I saw Your Name, and made a temporary friend named Sandy whom told me "I bet you got the job", and bought me some airplane whiskey (which was pretty delicious) to celebrate.

Sat Jun 23 15:22:13 UTC 2018

Last month was the Mixpanel EPD off-site in SF. Long day, but good day, indeed. I also discussed how a friend of mine mentioned I exhibit similar focusing strategies as him and that he was recently diagnoised with ADHD.

Sat Jun 23 15:24:07 UTC 2018

Last week was a weekly review, and I may want to reread the post more carefully during my proper weekly review (which reminds me, I need that to be in my plan).

I'll reivew the rest of the post during my end of day review.

Sat Jun 23 15:34:18 UTC 2018

Let's do some timer stuff.

Sun Jun 24 02:08:27 UTC 2018

I'm physically tired from yesterday and emotionally tired from the events of today, so I'm going to move my weekly review to tomorrow (which actually makese sense, as today was basically a wife day and we already agreed that tomorrow would thus not be).

We'll see if I still do my end of day review or skip it today. But for now, Overwatch.

Sun Jun 24 04:12:15 UTC 2018

This morning, I skimmed last month a bit and for reasons I already don't remember, I wanted to read it again. So let's do that.

Wait, I wanted to redo for last week. That's how well I remember. Ah, yes, weekly review stuffs.... I guess I can give this a proper review tomorrow morning (I'll do my weekly review right after my planning pomodoro, I think).

Moving on, then.

Sun Jun 24 04:28:15 UTC 2018

Yesterday was my wife's birthday.

Sun Jun 24 04:29:21 UTC 2018

Which leads us to today....

Today didn't go so well. The wife and I recovered, but it was painful for a bit. We tried to go to comic con, and we bought tickets, and we waited in line.

And they wouldn't let use bring our metal reusable cups in. Even though the person behind us was wearing a ton of metal and was waved through. My wife... is diabled. Staying in line once was already too much for her, and we really like our reusable cups and aren't about to throw them away.

I wanted to see if I could get a refund, and the answer was no.

I was a bit angry, but I kept things fairly under control. I had a heated discussion with my wife, and she also did a good job keeping it under control. A person interuptted our conversation to ask if we'd sign a petition (something we've already done), and I, in my heated tone, explained to him that 1) we already signed that petition, and 2) we were clearly away from the line, and having a conversation, and I definitely do not appreciate being intruded upon. "I agree with what you're trying to do but learn to read people better, please." He got defensive and I ended the conversation there.

I went back to the ticket counter and said it'd be appreciated if they explained what wasn't allowed into the comic con area before selling the tickets. It's a clear design flaw in my opinion. You have to buy the non-refundable tickets before going through the line. The ticket-booth has no line. The woman behind the counter gave me a blank stare and said, "The information is available online."

....

So is buying tickets! Why would I go to the counter if I went online and bought tickets online? And, also, fact-check: the only quote about metal at all on their website is here: "ACE Comic Con has a strict weapon ban for metal, glass, plexiglass and stone weapons. Beyond that, it is completely at the discretion of our guests what they are willing to sign. Ask them prior to purchasing the autograph."

This is under the autograph section, and is worded as "weaponry". A cup is not a weapon. I'm actually considering trying a chargeback now. We weren't allowed to use services paid for based on incomplete information not given at the time of sale. I don't even care about the money. It's a principle sort of thing.

I've made a trello action item for it.

Sun Jun 24 04:48:38 UTC 2018

Anyways, we made sure to do other things in the day and recovered pretty well. Not a big deal overall.

I didn't have a post last year.... On my wife's birthday.

Probably forgiveable, actually, as I was flying to SF for my Mixpanel interview.

Sat Jun 23 04:34:31 UTC 2018

Last month, I celebrated planning my day first thing (I get to celebrate that most everyday now), even though I was in SF.

I also started using 4DX terminology like "whirlwind", which I still like talking about. Today was a super whirlwind day, in fact.

Sat Jun 23 04:36:32 UTC 2018

Last week, I noted the desire to start a habit of writing down how fast I run to work. I'm hit-or-miss (and would've forgotten today if not for reviewing that post).

I also note that my review of the past is usually in relation to what I've done today. This remains the truth, and I'm still "good with this". It's actually a large part of the value.

I was struggling with work pomodoros last week, and that remains true this week (though yesterday was super good).

Sat Jun 23 04:40:28 UTC 2018

Yesterday was a solid system day that I'm pretty satisfied with. I'd like to make it a common type of day.

Sat Jun 23 04:42:13 UTC 2018

Today... my attention was fractured. I needed to be better about fitting in pomodoros when I could. As a result, I'm way behind where I wanted to be at this point. I may do some work on the weekend to catch up. But no more than an hour or two (explicitly no more than 4 pomodoros).

Oh, also, I have decided, contrary to one of the posts I reviewed today, that I now have an explicit goal of losing weight. I tore my hands up climbing today, and it's made me think that being lighter will make both running and climbing easier, and I also wouldn't mind being lighter than 200 pounds again. So, I'll be aiming for 2500 caloires a day. This should, I think, lead to about a pound lost per week (as I normally eat about 3000 and have been staying stable there, and 3500 calories is a pound).

Anyways, time to go wind down and spend the last bit of the day with the birthday wife.

Played with event setup in my timer today. No functional progress. No change to event setup, either. It's a tradeoff, implementation-wise. I think for what I want to implement, using the global event-manager makes sense.

....

Mostly.

It makes sense that the events the timer itself currently emits stay events. E.g. tick, clear, pause. As various arbitrary things may listen to those events (e.g. youtube alarms, pomodoro trackers). But some events I throw because I'm used to that pattern. But no event needs be thrown.

In any case, I think it's better to just go down the road I'm going down, and post-mortem my decisions instead of jumping around between different ones. So tomorrow, back to focusing on getting YouTube alarms in.

Anyways, I'm already five minutes into my end-of-day review. Consider the above my review of today. Well, part of it. There's more to say if I get to it.

Last month, I made a temporary friend, Jenna. She was cool. I'll never see her again. That's okay.

Also last month, I noted how there were posts in this here diary over a year old, and I was inspired to reflect onposts one year old, one month old, one week old, and one day old every day. I quite like this habit you decided to start, past me. Thank you for starting it (though you forgot about reviewing the previous week for a while).

"The 4 Disciplines of Execution is proving to be a great read in its own right, and ironically may be giving me the framework I need to make serious progress on projects." I believe it indeed gave me the framework I needed.

In fact, just today I thought about how it's great that I developed this habit of collecting data, but I had nothing to focus on improving using that data. 4DX explicitly points out why metrics need goals to drive them else they're really just fun facts. Right now, I have some simple meta goals (more pomodoro per day), and specific project goals. And I now reflect on that data I collect and use it to drive change in my habits to achieve the goals I want.

And it's pretty awesome.

Oh, yeah, last month I was also in SF.

Fri Jun 22 02:57:10 UTC 2018

Last week, I noted how cool it was to see the progress I've made in a week. Still cool. Not as much progress as last time.

Fri Jun 22 03:02:03 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I made a plan to go to work early to get some office-time to myself to be productive. I did get there early, but ended doing some bad browsing habits. Not sure why. Perhaps the morning productivity provides a warm-up, or maybe I actually have the habit of distracting myself at work? In any case, I addressed it and did a solid 6 pomodoros at work. A mere 2 pomodoro away from my long-term stable goal. Though, specifically, my goal will be 40 a week, with some variability allowed day-to-day.

Today was a good day, and I finally rolled over my 401k to Vanguard from my old work account.

In any case, it's time for some Overwatch.

A friend of mine has started making a C++ game with his new ample free time. This has convinced me to also make time to learn C++ game dev stuff. Going to have to subtract some Overwatch from my schedule, I think, as all the other things need to stay in.

So, my hour to Overwatch on M/W/F (except Wednesday/Friday this week for birthday reasons) will now be C++ game dev time.

Wed Jun 20 20:34:05 UTC 2018

I just read Democratizing Data. I made it a pomodoro, because it's content that's very relevant to my work (I'm now on the data management team).

There's also complementary slides.

Building trust in data is the main goal of the data management team. This article is both good reference material to store for later, and something to chew on. Though the technology stack will inevitably be much different.

Fresh 27-year-old me didn't bother making a birthday post last year (lazy).

Thu Jun 21 04:10:07 UTC 2018

Last month, I returned home from Vancouver. I believe I also finished The 4 Disciplines of Execution.

Thu Jun 21 04:10:55 UTC 2018

Last week, I went to Vertical World for the first time (I'll go every other Wednesday I think).

I also got my timer to a spot where it counts down from 10. Doesn't take me very long to get it to a much better state. Tomorrow I'll be back to doing timer stuff.

Though, I'm considering rethinking my Tuesdays/Thursdays. I think it'd be better to get to work early (to get some super productive alone-time at the office). I then leave early and get my 2 hours of side-projects when I get home.

I think I'll try that tomorrow.

Thu Jun 21 04:14:20 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I got back from a good two-day work trip to SF.

Thu Jun 21 04:14:58 UTC 2018

And I'm out of time. The planning and the end-of-day pomodoros are really necessary. I'm glad I do them.

Also, the return of Trello to the daily checklist! I actually refer to it a lot now. Instead of sending myself emails for actions, I just make 'em in Trello now. Still got email actions to port over, but weekly review will eventually tackle that.

Last year was the last day of me being 26. Which means that today is the last day of me being 27!

Anyways, I linked to a YouTube video that dismantled a YouTuber called Bill Whitle, who is someone that another YouTuber I'm in contact with (still) called TheDavoo.

I'm still in agreement with a year ago me on these things.

I also think that the "working hard to justify opinions already held" is a generally prevalent problem. Something even I still do, though I work hard to identify when I'm doing it.

Tue Jun 19 16:39:35 UTC 2018

Last month was an unplanned Saturday in Vancouver, WA.

"Eventually I will learn a means of keeping my systems intact when in a new environment." I think I've made progress there, but we'll have to see how I do on vacation.

Tue Jun 19 16:41:33 UTC 2018

Last week, I noted a lot of progress I made on pain points past me noted. I'm still working on pain points noted last week, though. For example, right now I'm not in a pomodoro. I've already spent two on planning, and was hoping I'd finish this well before the end of a third one (I'm getting close to it being worth a third one).

Sometimes I have a lot of stuff to process. Especially when I skip the end of day review and plan on skipping it again. Perhaps three is just fair?

In any case, progress there is slow, but it exists, I think.

Tue Jun 19 16:45:28 UTC 2018

Yesterday was a kickoff of a new project at work. Lots of good thinking done. Now it's time to get work done and iterate on that thinking.

Last month, I had a work from Vancouver day. Could've been more productive. Had a good hike with my sister and my wife in the evening, though.

Mon Jun 18 15:36:39 UTC 2018

Last week, I started noticing an inability to stop what I started. I want to finish things, but some things are long term and I need to find a good place to pause.

Still working on that.

Mon Jun 18 15:38:29 UTC 2018

Yesterday was a lot of things:

  • Wife's day
  • Father's day
  • travel to SF day

Managed to juggle the responsibilities of the day pretty well.

Also, noticed a problem with my new timer. The bottom row of numbers was "1 2 3" instead of "7 8 9". That's fixed now, though.

Here's hoping to a good kickoff on my work project for the foreseeable future!

Mon Jun 18 16:44:01 UTC 2018

Reading Making Web Components Work, an article about panel (used at work and I'm using it on my projects), and now I'm thinking I'm probably doing it wrong for my timer. I'm sending events everywhere.

I'll get my timer to its MVP state and then I'll try and fix the implementation.

Last year, I had some choice words on "social trial" and "innocent until proven guilty": "And in this case, assuming Cosby's innocence is assuming many others of being liars to a criminal level. If we're pretending that social opinion is a crime, both the accuser and the accused are on trial. There is no real neutral ground. So I'm going to form an informed opinion, and when I don't have enough information, I'm going to side with those with less resources and/or a lack of proper representation or power. Chances are they're not criminals, they're oppressed."

Last month, I said something that applies to today: "Always interesting to see my weight be higher after a day where I ate a lot of food. I understand that it's not actual weight gain, but it's a good feedback mechanism none-the-less."

I also got pooped on by a bird, but didn't note that (I remember because it was the day I picked up the rental car to go to Vancouver, WA).

Sun Jun 17 14:54:10 UTC 2018

A week ago, the wife and I went to wayward vegan cafe. I also helped a person with their pygame stuff.

Sun Jun 17 15:42:47 UTC 2018

I have a pomodoro button on the new timer.

This means it is time to work on making YouTube alarms again. But this time there can be an alarm for any arbitrary time.

Last month, I noted that I hadn't been devoting time to reading or person projects, but was good about work and exercise. I decided not to judge this and let it stabilize before trying to mutate further. I think that was a good plan, and now I am working on side-projects (and even getting a bit of reading in).

Sun Jun 17 02:09:21 UTC 2018

Reorganized the day. Taking Overwatch out to make room for pomodoros I skipped in the morning. Won't quite make up completely, but that's okay.

Sun Jun 17 03:06:04 UTC 2018

I really want to keep working on my timer, but I have felt the value of doing my daily reviews, and the weekly review is getting more valuable each time I do it (I'm still setting things up as far as that goes).

I won't have time to do both if I don't stop working on the timer now. So... let's do my end of day review.

Last week, I started actual work on timer 2.0.

I've made a lot of progress in a week, in all fairness. I rarely devoted more than an hour per day to it, and I've been playing with a bunch of stuff behind the scenes. Today, for instance, it looks like no progress has been made, but I'm trying to make an alarm class for both pomodoro tracking and arbitrary YouTube triggers at various points in a countdown.

I'm hoping it'll be exactly what I want, but maybe not? Lots of thinking involved here. Though, in any case, I'm working on my programming capabilities, which is good. I may decide I don't like it, and then I can rewrite it better.

Sun Jun 17 03:28:21 UTC 2018

Yesterday, my timer became functional, and I stated some confidence in being able to plug some stuff in. I maintain that confidence. Once I figure out how I want to do alarms, I think things will flow smoothly.

Which, I may have something now, so from there.... Well, I'll have a good idea of where I am tomorrow.

Empty my head....

I'm pretty excited about my developing side-project habit. I want to practice finishing and polishing alongside working on stuff, so I might be on the timer for a bit, but I'm confident that I'll get better at styling and such as I stick to such things (and also because I'll build a code base from which to reuse certain personal styles).

I like that I'm devoting a chunk of this time to IGDA admin stuff. Which is also a way of saying I'm devoting this time to grunt work. I'm not programming. I'm organizing actions that need to be done (organized via Trello) and getting them done. This is excellent for getting over my distaste for tedious work. Which is also why I want to use Trello more regualarly.

Though, soon I'll be done with IGDA grunt work, and I can actually do some programming there, as well. I have found some bugs in the stuff we already automate, and also further stuff that could be automated.

Also, I've been looking ahead thinking about what my project post-timer will be. I may wish to remake my gamified site-blocker. For two reasons, 1) I think a better means of gaining income in the site-blocker is warrented, and 2) I think it'd be valuable to make a chrome extension in panel and typescript. Further, I'd have use for timer code from my... timer code.

I have some work-related ideas that would benefit from me knowing how to make an extension.

But also... I have an idea for a Japanese learning app which itself could have an extension companion. Though, honestly, the extension would come much later. So....

I'm thinking prioritize the extension first.

Sun Jun 17 03:43:42 UTC 2018

I guess empything my thoughts kinda was a review of my projects (they aren't properly living in Trello yet).

Which means let's move some actions from email to Trello.

Sun Jun 17 03:56:37 UTC 2018

Moved some actions and did some Vanguard stuff (and planned when I'll move T Rowe Price stuff over to Vanguard).

Still got a lot of stuff to process, but I'm slowly making progress.

Going to reorder my weekly checklist so I don't skip so much (as I'll not run out of email actions for a while).

I plan to eventually put some stuff back in daily when it's properly organized, but right now I'm batching it and slowly putting it in a daily-ready state via weekly reviews.

Sun Jun 17 03:58:35 UTC 2018

I might do more of my weekly review tomorrow. I think devoting extra time for a few weekends will really accelerate it getting to a solidly valuable state.

Anyways, time to get ready to wind down.

Last year, I copy-pasted a politics conversation with a friend of mine. I wanted to put more political thinking in my diary. I guess this is a goal that I have let slip. It is a good, goal, however. Something to think about.

Fri Jun 15 14:12:54 UTC 2018

Time for climbing.

Fri Jun 15 18:03:10 UTC 2018

I'm going to try and update my "run" time blocks with how long the run took. Moar data! The run to work itself is 2.3 miles. Meaning I'm managing to run to work at a 7-minute, 42-second pace.

That's pretty good! Typically I'm not running that fast of a pace until I'm closer to 200 pounds.

Sat Jun 16 03:06:34 UTC 2018

I ended up continuing work on my timer remake against my better judgement.

On the bright side: its functional, though not yet as good as my current one.

Soon, though. Stuff should be pretty easy to plug in.

Last month, I had a nightmare. Also of note (to me) is that I weighed in at 212.8 pounds. I'm not disappointed or anything. I'm not interested in losing weight. I'm interested in being physically capable and healthy, which right now seems to mean being at a steady weight and getting stronger. I'm good with this.

Sat Jun 16 04:14:05 UTC 2018

Last week I was starting to play with typescript in panel. That was only a week ago? That was already a week ago? Somehow I'm feeling both things at once. I've made a lot of progress already, I think. Which is good. In fact, I should be able to replace my old timer sometime next week.

I should play more with inserting code into my posts. Maybe I'll do a post about my timer when it hits MVP.

Sat Jun 16 04:18:17 UTC 2018

Yesterday, the most important thing I talked about was improving my pomodoro-rate at work. Today I managed 2 at work.... Though to be fair it would've been 3 but 1 minute before it ended I needed to go to a meeting.

But 3 isn't good enough either. Though, also, I'm not taking it personally. I just want to be better. I'm still working on the rhythm I need.... I'll tackle it more next week.

Sat Jun 16 04:21:33 UTC 2018

I've noticed that my review of yesterday is usually in comparison to today. Is this a good way to go about this? It seems useful in its own way. In a sense, I'm also comparing the other past posts to today, just not directly. It's more, "Here's this thing I struggled with but am doing well now." or "Here's this thing I completely forgot about."

Or fun things I wrote in the past.

Yeah, I'm good with this.

End of day review over.
