Adding a new sleep question: do you remember your dream? Because sometimes I do but I have nothing in place to capture it whilst writing in this diary. Last night was a lucid dream. I dreamt that I was being fired for having literally slept through all of spring. Even with my dream brain I realized the logic was bad. I concluded I was sleeping, and wasn't much liking the dream, so I willed myself awake....

Into another dream. And thus stopped thinking I was in a dream.

This isn't a particularly unique dream. I do this a lot.

Anyways, after "waking up", I decided to use my telekinesis to cheat at gambling and win millions of dollars. Figuring that this would set the mafia after me, I decided to hide my ill-gotten gains... in another casino?

And that's all that I remember.

Last year, I started building a pull-up habit (it didn't stick).

Last month, I was thinking over the problem of not being as productive at work as I'd like, pomodoro-wise.

I was also pretty happy that I was (and still am) regularly updating my system as I find flaws in my methodology.

Last week was the first day of the Tahoe trip.

Yesterday was a solid 4th of July morning with family and evening with friends.

Today was a solid work day! Though my pomodoro-count would disagree (it'll be two after this review). That's because today was a lot of discussing things with coworkers and making sure we have the same vision of success (which we did not).

It's also confirmation that I can do good work while on travel. Something I'll keep in mind moving forward.

Climbing has been sporadic lately due to travel, but I'll be back at it tomorrow and I'm excited.

Personal projects hopefully will be back to full speed tomorrow. I'm feeling much better, productively speaking, than I was last Monday.

Today, I listened to some of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban whilst driving back to Seattle. It's a fun listen.

I read an article by Film Crit Hulk about Star Wars: The Beautiful, Ugly, and Possessive Hearts of Star Wars.

I watched some YouTube:

I'll watch some random video whilst winding down after this post. Which, well, it's time to stop now.
