Time to update my template web app a bit. I want a type definition file for panel's StateController, which will be the main external thing I import in TypeScript files.

Thu Jun 07 14:55:19 UTC 2018

That was super painful. Had a bug in my javascript implementation (the part that I can't make typescript because it imports jade files and that breaks things right now if tried as typescript), and I thought it was my typescript screwing things up.

This setup should work for now, I think.

Thu Jun 07 15:14:39 UTC 2018

Did some thinking and I'd like to define state in the controller. I believe mapped types should allow me to do that.

I'll also want tslint.

But in any case, it's time to run to work.

Naps have just been super amazing lately. They aren't quite like sleep. There's this sense that I'm not falling asleep, and this restorative tingly sensation that starts in my brain and washes over my body, and then time moves super fast and I'm refreshed and "wake up" around the 30-minute mark.

My thoughts have this free-form-ness to them. Dream-like in a sense, but more... observable. And controllable.

Perhaps honing this ability would help towards developing lucid dreaming capabilities? I mean, I have had lucid dreams, but never on purpose, and only once where I had any sort of control over the content of the dream (and that control was solely staying in the dream and not panic waking).

But I digress. Main point: naps are awesome.

Just put The Pragmatic Programmer on hold at the library. I'm 15th in line, so it should be a while before it's available for me.

Last month: "Anyways, two Saturdays have passed without me doing personal project work, and thus some thinking is in order."

Last Saturday was strong, and this Saturday, too, will probably be strong.

We just didn't define the game we were playing well enough, past me. Playing "maximize pomodoros" was the panacea, though consistently reinforcing that with lagging metrics like accomplishment of my goals will be necessary, I think.

This is also the day wherein I described how words were not enough to capture my thoughts. I do draw my thoughts a bit, but I could work on doing it more.

Last month was just a cool post in general.

Future me: when you reread this post, also reread that post.

Fri Jun 08 03:04:28 UTC 2018

Yesterday vs today: I managed several work pomodoros (progress!), and I finished making a working TypeScript setup for my template webapp.

Well, there's more to be done to make it properly valuable (need to make a better type definition for panel), but it's functional in TypeScript, and that was the goal.

I have solidified my plan of starting the incorporation of Trello starting next weekly review.

Today is better thanks to yesterday, so thank you yesterday!

Time for Overwatch.
