Last month, I spent the morning with extended family, then drove to Chicago with my cousin. He has a VR setup, so I played some Super Hot and a VR rhythm game where you sliced to the beat. Both were super cool. We also saw Solo near his place (decent movie).

Last week, I don't have much to say. Timer progress started again, but a bunch of stuff has made it so I'm not working on it everyday. Like, skipped one day, and then I have this Tahoe trip where I won't do any such work until I get back home on Saturday.

It's interesting to note how much my daily checklist has updated in just a week. Lots of little iterations.

Yesterday, I reacted badly to political news. And today I'm better, but I think I need to work on ending my contact with twitter like I ended it with reddit.

It's bad for me. Full stop.

But, because this is a little work vacation, let's do a play-by-play of the day instead of any thinking. Think can come, mind you, as I did a lot of things worth ruminating on today.

So, I woke up, and made myself some waffles. I started off counting calories in my diary, but as the day went on I decided that it was not tenable. I was going to estimate so many numbers, and I wasn't going to use that data in any way, it was not valuable.

Anyways, I made waffles, and I packed, and I walked to the light rail to take it to the airport. I meet up with people, we fly, we land, we get on a bus to Tahoe. I have a drink. I have another.

We arrive at Tahoe, I go to orientation, I walk to my cabin. I browse Twitter.

There is no reason to browse Twitter. It is not keeping me informed. It is not motivating me. It is not updating or iterating my philosophy. Twitter is garbage time better spent being inside my own head.

I finally tear myself away and nap. The nap clears me of my negative emotions and I go wandering. A couple people comment on me looking really happy. "All I've done so far is take a nap."

I hang out with a person from the London office. He's cool. Name is Lanrun or something like that.

We go to the place where there'll be food. There's a fireside Q&A with the CEO. I end up asking a question. We take a group photo, we eat. I go back and hang out with the same people.

I have a long discussion about politics. And at some point I'll reiterate my thinking here. But not now. It was a fun talk. I drink some whiskey.

We walk to karaoke. The place is packed and loud. I stay for all of 30 seconds and nope my way out. I walk back to my cabin.

I brush my teeth. I floss. The plan is to do my end of day review. I browse twitter (bad). Then youtube (better). Then start my pomodoro and do this end of day review.

And now I'm going to wind down with some youtube and then sleep.

Expect just a review tomorrow, as well. With another play-by-play.
