I have switched the order of the last two time block items before bed. Doing my end-of-day routine before TV often left me startin TV late, and thus we'd watch Overwatch players on YouTube instead of the ever-growing shows we plan on watching.
The wife and I disucssed this habit, and we have decided to watch Overwatch before playing (and while eating), and watch a show before bed.
Anyways, two Saturdays have passed without me doing personal project work, and thus some thinking is in order.
I think an important first question is: Do I need the break? Someone has sent me some links to this effect. When Distraction is a Good Thing.
On one hand, I'm filling that time with mostly aimless YouTube and blog reading. Even a bit of Twitter sometimes (thankfully Reddit has been kept properly away). These are things that I feel better for not consuming during the week or consuming by myself.
On one hand, it's certainly possible that I need the day. I also don't spend that much time on the time-wasting sites, though I think that if I'm going to spend time on those sites, forcing that time to live in a specific time-block would be ideal.
Other time is spent playing single-player games, literally just sitting/laying down and thinking, and socializing with non-work friends. The latter took up half of each Saturday, and it was good to play some MTG with old college friends.
Also, the thinking. Sometimes I spend time thinking about my thinking habit. I find myself thinking maybe I should be writing down my thoughts. It often proves more powerful. But maybe I also need time to just let things bubble in my head before they're really ready to be proper words in a text editor.
But there's also some really good little stand alone sentences I have whilst bubbling. Stuff that simmers aways like dreams. I like to construct fun sentences. A personal sort of poetry. A lot of it is like me giving some imaginary speech about some imaginary (or even very real) cause.
I don't know if it's good, but I like it, and I think it may be one of the few things that I'd like to revist.
This diary. Most of it I won't look back on. It's a means of having a conversation with myself, and also serves the purpose of keeping people who want to stay informed on my life stay informed. Which is exactly what I want this sort of thing to be.
It's why Facebook and Twitter were never things I posted to. Facebook and Twitter felt like me saying things towards some other person. Not a specific one, though. The ether. A non-person. A Schroeder's group. Everyone and no one until someone specific replied.
But I'm a direct message kind of person. I don't shout into the ether. I speak towawrds specific people. Others can listen in, depending on the context, but the specific person is valuable, Stephan.
And, man, this diary. This diary is becoming exactly what I wanted it to be way back when I first started it back on March 8th, 2017.
And now I've distracted myself. I've been timestamping my wake-ups throughout the night, but markdown is compiling that to ordered list stuff.
Need to do some quick sed-fu.
Fixed! Time for bed. The command I used was:
sed -i.bak 's/\(\* [0-2][0-9][0-9][0-9]\)\.\([^$]\)/\1:\2/g' *
I'll leave the backup files for a bit just in case something went hilariously wrong, but it looks right.
Nah. I'm removing them now. I trust myself.
For future purposes, though, I finally went ahead and git repo'd the directory where all these posts live. I'll commit before doing a sed in the future. That way I can look at the diff and make sure it only changed what I wanted. That would've been smart in this case. Too late now.
