Had a dream with a bunch of private stuff. Putting that stuff in a personal dream diary. The end is fine to share, though:

It ended up with weird plant parasites that looked like dreadlocks of hair attached to my belly and chest, and I had to rip them off painfully.

Expecting a very important call today. Woo.

Thu Jul 19 18:56:45 UTC 2018

Last month was a SF workday where I travelled back to Seattle at the end of the day.

I think I've continued to make progress on using my system in different environments from this day.

I dreamt that I was visiting some unnamed city. The group I was with included my wife, my aunt, and some people who do not exist. We were eating treast, including but not limited to rice krispies.

A person we didn't know came up to us and asked for food. She was dirty and wearing slightly tatered clothes. One of the people we were with broke off bits of rice crispy and literally threw the food in an arc at the person.

"Thank you," said the woman as she caught the first bit of food. The second bit of food veered way off and fell down the cliff beyond a hand rail. "That was mean."

"It was an accident," said the thrower.

"Mahjong!" came a voice from the other side of the rail. There wasn't a pit anymore, it was a train rail area, and on the other side of it was a group of people hanging out. One was a different woman holding a board game.

The woman on this side started speaking a different language, and pulled out a... chess board for some reason. The pieces were setup incorrectly on the board and they were screaming moves to each other. Playing some game that wasn't chess, and wasn't mahjong.

But it was time to get on the train... to get to a different train.

We almost missed the first train, but caught the second half of it. There was immediately a long line on the train to get into the bathroom. Someone in the line was drinking clear liquid. He stopped halfway through the glass and asked, "Is this water?"

"It's vodka," said someone else as he finished drinking the glass.

"I'm going to be sick," he said, as he rushed to the front of the line for the bathroom. It was at this point I noticed his hair looked like an upside-down boot. As I realized this, it took on a more solid form of a boot.

"Food is ready," came a voice from behind. I turned around and there was a whole cart of food. I inspected it for low-sugar, vegan goods. Which is interesting. Seems the subconscious is in full agreement with my diet. Though I was eating a rice krispy treat earlier? Minor inconsistency.

At this point, there was a police raid on a train. The captain being the dirty woman from earlier. Some criminal was caught on the train, and the food needed to be taked as evidence. But I had found some curry and rice I wanted to eat.

"No!" I screamed as I tried to grab some food before it was taken away. I was tazed. "Worth it," I thought as I shoveled food into my face whilst still being tazed. That was the end of the dream.

Last month was a Lexicon++ kickoff in SF. Meaning I've been on my current project for a month. Not moving fast enough.

Wed Jul 18 19:07:23 UTC 2018

Last week was a WFH day. Solid day. This was the day before my flight to Tucson.

Wed Jul 18 19:08:55 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I started noticing that I'm feeling a bit ill. Today it's becoming more clear that I am ill. It may be this chronic illness I seem to get regularly. So, I'm going to tag today and yesterday with it. I can maybe go back and find the other days where I had this illness, but that might be hard.

My goal is, going forward, I'll note each time I feel sick for multiple days where I don't get my wife sick (aka I'm not contagious) as this chronic illness, and then I have data to give a doctor when I next see a doctor.

But in any case, my systems are keeping me productive in this state! I'm losing a bunch of time, though, due to extra sleep needs. I'm going to see if I can get a good number of pomodoros even though I came in late today, and plan to leave today at the same time (as is important to avoid a vicious cycle that'll hurt my sleep).

Let's see if I can get a pomodoro every half-hour until I leave (except for the nap).

Thu Jul 19 18:13:04 UTC 2018

Next day review again (hopefully back to day-of from now on).

Today was a super solid work-day. In spite of me showing up pretty late and doing my planning at work. I made a goal of a pomodoro every half-hour and mostly made that goal. I ended up not doing the final pomodoro and doing some ping pong instead.

This is super exciting for several reasons. One, yesterday was almost a sick day. I did not have energy, and in fact I was super tired by the time I got home due to my being ill. I had that thing where I overheated really easily and everything was more tiring. Also, a slight stomach ache. This is a sickness that happens pretty regularly. And I've never been productive when sick like this.

Until today. And not only was I productive, I was as productive as usual in less time. Which just tells me I need to step up my game.

Which is absolutely the goal.

I also finally am going to deploy tomorrow something I've been working on for a month, and I can't wait to start a cycle of:

  • Customer feedback
  • Give something to customer
  • Customer feedback
  • Give something to customer
  • Etc.

It is going to be a big priority moving forward.

I decided to sleep in and skip climbing because of my feeling ill. I don't want to hurt myself. I ended up doing plenty of pull-ups at work, as well as walking to work and walking home instead of running. A good compromise, and also a good means of gauging how sick I feel.

I'm really hoping to be back to climbing by Friday, but will be okay with myself if I put it off until Monday.

I watched the first Harry Potter instead of working on personal projects. I had no energy after I did some basic cleaning and cooking in the kitchen. I think this was the correct choice.

My system is proving to be quite valuable when I'm in a non-ideal state. And I'm showing that I'm quite capable of adapting when necessary. For instance, doing these end-of-day reviews the next day works... for the most part, and is a good way of dealing with running out of energy.

I'm bought into the system enough to not let myself fall too far behind.

Reading:

  • Love Joy Feminism
  • Pharyngula | Freethought Blogs
  • Five Thirty Eight

Listening:

  • Cortex (during pomodoros)

Watching:

Lots of short YouTube videos today.

We've decided to watch the Harry Potter movies after finishing the books. We're almost done with the third book, so we'll watch the first three pretty quickly. The next four books will be long listens, so it might be a while before watching those.

Last year, I had a kinda post-mortem for the GMTK game jam. Wanted to start to do an hour of game stuff everyday. Not a bad plan, but I didn't have the systems in place to actually accomplish it.

Tue Jul 17 18:23:37 UTC 2018

Last month, I made a note of slight weight gain. It's fun to note that I'm getting close to 210. Should be below 210 by August.

Tue Jul 17 18:25:50 UTC 2018

Last week, I fought with myself a bit on what my timer goals are. Which boiled down to: learning how to do things "right" and being pretty slow or rushing to something functional and making it better later.

I think, at work, rushing to something functional is good, because I have outside pressure to fix what is bad. But with personal projects, without people to look at my work, I should in fact focus on what I think is the right way and work on doing work that way quickly. So I'm glad I made the decision I did a week ago.

I have done a good job of avoiding Twitter, lately.

Tue Jul 17 18:29:19 UTC 2018

Yesterday was my first full day in Seattle in a while. I have some recovery I need to do from shocks to my sleep because of travel. But productivity has been solid considering that. Usually a day like yesterday results in nothing, instead of pretty close to a normal day.

Going to take a while before YNAB stuff stabilizes into stuff to properly analyze. For now I'm still capturing all spending, so I'm doing what I should there. Looks like spending for the month is around $4k.

I think? I'm not sure how credit card spending stuff works, exactly. I'll figure it out.

Oh, wait, looking at the reports. I'll need to reorganize where my spending is to really see where money is going.

Something to consider doing next weekly review.

Wed Jul 18 02:38:04 UTC 2018

Nothing much to note about the week's posts.

Out of time. Next time I'll do more stuff.

Wed Jul 18 02:59:05 UTC 2018

Got a solid 7 pomodoros at work, though two of those were backlog and planning. I woke up late this morning, and so only processed tickler and headed straight to work. Definitely not a habit to build.

Ended up not doing IGDA Admin and working on personal project again. I have search "working", and now need to load the YouTube video. Which means it's time to understand panel better.

Really, it's time to understand it better to better understand how I should rearrange things and share state between DOM components.

Whilst walking home today... I passed a woman walking the other way. She had a stagger to her walk and a green wig poorly concealing her black hair. As I got closer, I realized that her flesh-colored pants were just a lack of pants. I got proper confirmation as she turned away from me towards a store and yelled hello loudly inside.

Strange experience.

Reading today:

I actually read that last one yesterday, but remembered that I read it today, so I'm going to list it today.

Listening today:

  • Cortex

Watched today:

Time to wind down and fall asleep.

Last year, I failed to do a game jam.... I wonder how well I could do a game jam now. GMTK should have another game jam again.

Tue Jul 17 17:40:59 UTC 2018

Last month was, I think, my second weekly review since adding them to my system. I need to do my weekly review. Let's do that tomorrow.

Tue Jul 17 17:45:02 UTC 2018

Last week, I noted the first weekly review of this system a month and a week ago. So, yes, last month's was the second. No need to keep counting, I think.

I noted last week that I was worried I was regressing to poor sleep, but recovered. I'm dealing with poor sleep again (late flight to Seattle), but I'm confident I'll return to stability as I've done several times before.

Tue Jul 17 17:47:46 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I returned to Seattle from Tucson. Lots of travel time. I had a good time in Tucson, and hopefully something lucrative will come of it.

Tue Jul 17 17:48:44 UTC 2018

I didn't send proper events to Mixpanel again today. Says I did 4 pomodoros, but it was 6. In any case, it was a pretty productive day considering the shock to my sleep schedule, and how tired I realized I was by the end of the day.

I didn't manage to finish what I wanted to finish, but there were meetings I needed to go to. I'll have it done today.

Skipped climbing today to prioritize sleep. Will be back at it on Wednesday. Hopefully will do a solid two weeks of 3 days of climbing per week starting next week.

YouTube API whitelist isn't working for some reason.... I'll try to figure it out tomorrow. Tonight is IGDA and weekly review.

Read a little bit of The Elements of Graphing Data. Gots to return it to the library tomorrow, as I'm WFT Wednesday.

Also some blogs:

  • Love Joy Feminism
  • Pharyngula | Freethought Blogs
  • Daylight Atheism

Listened to a bit of Capital in the 21st Century.

Listening to Cortex during pomodoros, still.

Watched:

Wow, lots of YouTube.

Last month was just a normal day.

Sun Jul 15 16:01:28 UTC 2018

Last week was a weekly review. And I gotta be honest, I completely forgot about doing a weekly review.

I can do the review on the plane ride home... or at the airport. I'll figure it out.

Sun Jul 15 16:05:18 UTC 2018

Yesterday was just a solid Saturday in Tucson.

Thought about doing work at various times, but the day was Sunday, and Sunday is not a work day. I also skipped the weekly review, but that's because there wasn't a good time to do it, I should make sure to do it today or tomorrow.

Landing late, sleeping late, may skip climbing tomorrow. We'll see.

Travel isn't going to happen for a few weeks now, personal projects should get more time.

Listened to more Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban whilst driving to and waiting at airport.

Watching:

Okay, time to start tomorrow's post.

Last month, I made a goal of having a good rhythm of pomodoros at work by June 25th. A goal that I don't think I've made even by now. Though I believe week to week it is slowly improving (something I can verify with Mixpanel).

Sat Jul 14 14:59:57 UTC 2018

Last week, I was talking about my general happiness recovering from destabilization. Also, I discussed my worry that listening to podcasts during pomodoros might be bad. Been doing it for over a week now and I think it's fine. We'll see how I feel as I go forward, though.

Sun Jul 15 15:33:18 UTC 2018

I'll be buying property in Tucson, it looks like. Nothing more to say, really. Having a solid Tucson visit.

Last year, I got job at Mixpanel. The year anniversary is coming up. Also had a cool dream about getting a job as a key animator.

Sat Jul 14 04:00:43 UTC 2018

Last month, I was getting excited for YouTube additions to timer.... Soon.

Sat Jul 14 04:09:38 UTC 2018

Last week was just an all-around solid day, and that's worth noting now.

Sat Jul 14 04:10:58 UTC 2018

Yesterday was a solid, productive day with a bunch of travel. Exciting.

I've got 6 pomodoros clocked-in today. Which doesn't sound great, but literally all pomodoros were work pomodoros. So that's pretty good. Didn't get as much done as I wanted, but there's no evidence I'd have done better at the office. That's a number in line with my current level of productivity (which could be better, I think, but progress will come).

Climbing skipped today due to travel. Same with personal projects.

No reading today.

Cortex listening during pomodoros today.

Watching (yesterday included) today:

Last month, I made waffles at work. There's some other stuff, but making waffles at work was cool and worth noting.

Thu Jul 12 14:39:12 UTC 2018

Last week was a productive work day in a remote location. Which is exciting, as I'll consider working from various remote locations in the future. I also added a question about dreams.

Thu Jul 12 14:43:50 UTC 2018

Yesterday was a solid work day that I believe set the foundation for a solid today and/or tomorrow.

Did a solid WFH day with some work done from the airport and some programming even done on the plane (super solid 1.5 hours of productive time without pomodoros).

No personal project time today due to travel.

No proper reading today (that I can remember the next day).

Some more Capital in the 21st Century and some Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban whilst driving to Tucson.

Also, pretty regular to listen to Cortex whilst working now.

I don't remember what I watched today versus watching the next day (when I'm writing this), so I'll cover it all in the review for the next day.

My dream this time was gross. I was in a public restroom.... Needing to use the toilet. And then various things happen and I needed to use the shower. The bathroom was big, like a gym's bathroom, but gross like a gas station's bathroom.

Ugh. Not going into more detail on this one.

Last month was a hectic day, it looks like. Also, my first time noting how fast I ran home from work.

I had just gotten typescript working and started developing "timer2".

Last week was the 4th of July. I had breakfast with my sister and spent the day with friends (it was one of 'em's 75th birthday).

Yesterday has various interesting bits.

First things first, twitter. Twitter is a thing I'm having trouble with, just like reddit. Today, I almost went, but I reminded myself of why I don't want to go there, and went elsewhere.

No thinking about politics today! Writing it down helped. It seems to be that my consistency with writing things down has led me to obsess about things I don't write down. Woo, Getting Things Done!

I decided to deep dive into playing with youtube api stuff. SoonTM, I'll have a prev/next of search results to go through. Then I'll actually load the YouTube video.

Also, I like how I'm starting to list my information consumption.

Thu Jul 12 04:26:24 UTC 2018

Today was a WFH day. It was as productive as yesterday. Which felt like half of Monday. I think I've laid the foundation for another day like Monday.

Went rope climbing today. Best one I've done is 5.10c, I think. I'm getting harder, better, faster, stronger. I decided against running today because I did 2 hours of climbing. Also maybe feeling a tiny bit sick?

I put in one pomodoro towards the timer. I haven't built the code in a while.... The next pomodoro's goal will be to list out YouTube search results.

No reading today.

Listening today:

  • Cortex

Watching today:

I really like listing this out. If I watched anything particularly good or regretted, I can talk about it. It also just really forces me to consider how much I've watched. Even with the speed runs running at 1.5x speed.

Last month, I started using aTimeLogger. I gave up on it after about a week. I wasn't using the data I was gathering at all, and it felt redundant when paired with my admittedly less precise timeblock setup. I think it makes more sense to eventually improve my timeblock setup.

Tue Jul 10 14:56:27 UTC 2018

Last week, I worked from home and drove to Vancouver, WA.

Tue Jul 10 14:57:54 UTC 2018

Yesterday was an 11-pomodoro day. Good day. I seem to be back in the groove.

Tue Jul 10 16:07:41 UTC 2018

Actually, it was 12 pomodoros yesterday. I failed to send the end of day pomodoro properly. Also failed to send this morning's pomodoro. Really need to fix my Mixpanel setup. Timer remake!

Wed Jul 11 02:31:49 UTC 2018

Okay, so I've been thinking about rushing to getting my timer remake to a place that's better than my current one.

But....

No.

I like playing with things.

But.....

I should work on being fast and playing intelligently. I can play the game, or I can practice speedrunning and get good at playing the game.

I guess....

Let's find a happy middle, and rush towards a prototype of how I'm thinking searching for YouTube videos should work in my app.

Work started out strong today but then I lost momentum. That loss of momentum followed me into home pomodoros, of which I did 2 of the planned 4. Non-counting this review, of course. I'm consistent on this at least.

Otherwise, though, work is going well and I'm confident that I'll get something cool out by the end of this week or early next week.

Struggled with a decision on my timer remake when I found a good compromise.

Hoping to have a quick-and-dirty exploration of youtube setup soon.

My brain has been obessivingly thinking about politics. Thinking that I'm not sure what to do with and I'm not sure how I should productively channel it. I believe that court-packing will be a necessary strategy when Democrats retake the senate and presidency. I believe that I should hold the democrats accountable for every little thing, but work towards them winning over the Republicans. I believe that it should be a serious goal of the DNC to practice fixing the political system via improving their own internal rules.

The Democratic party should be the only party, and it should split into its liberal and conservative sections.

But to go further with this thinking, I feel that educating myself on things is necessary. And I'm not in a place where that's a priority, so I'm going to try to let this go, and pretend that I'm good with just voting in primaries and voting Democrat.

Reading today:

Listening today:

YouTube today:

Some of the above was last night. It recently occurred to me that I can look at my YouTube history to list what I've watched.

Going to Twitter still. Something to keep working on. Not reading the opinions of people I know I explicitly disagree with and know I'll want to argue with, at least. I'll try to remind myself why I don't want to go there.

Anyways, time to go wind down.
