Had a solid amount of family time today, Stephan. My sister was in town so we went to coffee and then to a nice Vietnamese place. There was more going on but the wife and I got tired so we bused home. Along the way, we got some stuff at Target (loving me that Ripple pea milk), and when I got home I took a fairly delayed nap. I was really feeling like a good nap starting around what's become my usual nap time (1300) up until I finally took one.
That's an interesting development. The dip for a npa is supposedly pretty narrow, circadian-rhythm-wise. Or so I think. Maybe narrow isn't really that narrow? Something to ponder.
For my end-of-day routine: I had a protein shake and cleaned the kitchen a bit. I then brushed my teeth. Then I started filling in this post (updating info above and writing thoughts here). That's basically it.
Seems the exercise really does impact how much I eat in a day. Was quite capable of eating less than 3000 calories today, what with no running 4.6 miles and no going climbing. I wonder how much I'll eat tomorrow.
I'm really enjoying The First 20 Hours. I have about 20 pages left. Every single thing he learned was interesting. Though the last chapter about windsurfing isn't making me want to learn some parallel.
Every other chapter, though, has been pretty powerful. Yoga was a good parallel for me with climbing. His making a website with my goal to rebuild this one proper, and also make several sites. Relearning touch typing was something I had brushed off but his experience was pretty convincing, and also it reminded me how I wanted to start building the habit of improving my development environment and/or switch environments for the sake of proper exploration.
And his methodology gives me a better system to dive into. No ambient learning via usage. Identify what I don't like or what I'm bad at and work on it directly by either practicing it or changing something.
His learning the board game Go even made me think that I should at least learn it, Stephan. Though, the way he ended the chapter made me rethink that.
The chapter on learning to play the ukulele poked at my earlier attempt to learn piano this year. I was just getting to right-hand, left-hand parity of sorts before stopping. I was even doing a little jamming with my limited understanding with as far as I got with basic chords and scales and stuff.
His lovable projects reminded me of a bunch of mine.
And with rock-climbing, I've already started tackling them.
