Last week, I was feeling the apathy pretty hard, but I knew to fight it. I overcame it, partially thanks to some pressure from work, and am in a good spot now (though I understand the irony of saying that during a backlog review).

I may keep the personal weekly reviews on Monday.... I'm liking the idea of minimizing Sundays.

Thought about climbing today, but OpsLead has been paging me consistently and I would rather nothing escalate to my secondary, so I decided against it. In the future, I'm thinking about focusing on easy tasks on weekends, and then getting my stretching in afterwards (because the stretching is what helps me sleep, I think).

Interestly enough, my abs are sore from climbing yesterday. Which is neat. I should focus on the problems I was trying yesterday to get more ab workouts in (cave/cliff climbing).

I'm super enjoying my newly built computer. It's quiet, it can handle PUBG (which my last one couldn't really), and I'm enjoying some high framerate gaming. I consider this prep for QUAKECON next week.

Personal projects can resume when I get back.
