Didn't need to devote the whole hour to kickstart Monday.

I can start doing work-work now.

Mon Apr 09 19:16:35 UTC 2018

2nd meal went according to plan.

Finished early. Going back to work.

Mon Apr 09 19:20:18 UTC 2018

Oh, yeah. Dentist. Need to find one. Moving that to Wednesday.

Ping pong instead.

Mon Apr 09 20:11:46 UTC 2018

Feeling really good after some ping-pong. Let's do some work.

Mon Apr 09 20:43:27 UTC 2018

Distrated by page.

Back to work.

Stand-up ended early. Back to work.

Mon Apr 09 21:20:44 UTC 2018

Feeling tired. Nap time soon.

Tue Apr 10 03:51:55 UTC 2018

Mostly stuck to plan, but was getting really tired up to my scheduled nap time. Also, had a weird experience during my nap wherein when I fell asleep it was like I forgot to breathe in, thus waking up and leading me to consciously breathe in. I was never out of breath when this happened, though. Also, the nap was still quite revitalizing. Something to mention next time I see sleep doctor (noted).

Also, in general today I feel great. I think this is the beginning of building tons of momentum. Gots to build the mental pathways for the things I want to make a habit. Excited to do it, Stephan. Even rereading Getting Things Done a bit.

Tue Apr 10 03:56:10 UTC 2018

Getting me some chalmomile tea. I find myself missing coffee. Even though I'm trying to go sugar-free. I wouldn't mind black coffee. Trying to switch to the caffeine free teas to fix that.

I was pretty good about journaling as I went about my day today. I just did the majority of it in my work file.

I could still be better about it.

Tue Apr 10 04:07:05 UTC 2018

I am now keeping Twitter and YouTube on my premium sites list. They cost imaginary currency now. Currency that I can spend, but will run out of if I gourge.

Ate some dates.

Sun Apr 08 15:32:30 UTC 2018

All right, I have 2 hours of "Thinking ablog" blocked out. Why? I think it's just a good time to have a long conversation with myself about what I want to do.

First off: sleep. Sleep is looking very promising. I'm excited.

Actually... let's start listening to some music on endless repeat before I do this. Ikenfell - Paint the Future.

Okay, that's good. So. Excited. So excited. Yes. I woke up at 7 a.m. today. Naturally. I'm maintaining an ability to rotate my sleep schedule backwards.

I've been wearing some blue-light blockers a few hours before I plan to go to sleep. I don't know exactly when I want to start wearing them, but 2 hours before seems like a good number right now. I also have f.lux on all my devices. Not sure if results are placebo or not. Doesn't matter, I'm getting the results I want. Only when things stop working does it matter.

Also, naps. I'm napping. But, like, not for hours at a time. I'm napping a normal amount. 20 or 30 minutes. It's magical. Caffeine has always been real inconsistent with me, but naps so far have done what caffeine at its best feels like.

So, goals. I'm going to have more energy and better scheduling capability if my sleep is maintainable. Yesterday... yesterday I watched a lot of YouTube. I did do some productive stuff (like taxes), but I could've done more.

(Side note. Life: noun. The state of always feeling like you could've done more.)

There's a lot of stuff I want to get good at or even be able to do:

  • Machine learning
  • drawing
  • music (piano or violin)
  • writing music
  • Japanese
  • working on side projects consistently
  • understanding the stock market
  • better financial intelligence

I have time. I don't have enough time to do everything. I need to pick. I think the smartest thing to work on first is "working on side projects consistently". Getting good at this will make my time more efficient, thus unlocking more ability to do the other things.

I was talking to a friend about treating side-projects like playing a game. "But playing a game is much easier," he said. Is it? "Yeah, the mental pathways are already laid for the game."

Mental pathways. Foundation. Yes. But one can lay down those pathways for working on side projects in general. And then it's like playing a game. So what foundation do I need to build? I need the habit of going to my side project when I'm looking for something to do. Ideally, my list of things to do in my spare time would be:

  • side project
  • games
  • reading I know I want to do
  • audio I know I want to listen to
  • videos I know I want to watch
  • work-work
  • nothing
  • browsing the internet aimlessly

I don't ever want to browse the Internet aimlessly. That I do currently is an addiction I need to eliminate.

Which brings me naturally, I think, to my site-blocking extension, Browsing Costs. I still use this extension. I think it could use a remake. I shouldn't make imaginary currency for just not going to the sites for some period of time. I should have to do stuff.

Sun Apr 08 16:11:17 UTC 2018

Got distracted watching the Ikenfell trailer on the Ikenfell site.

Sun Apr 08 16:15:46 UTC 2018

So, yeah, I want currency for what I do. Not what I don't do.

So let's start. Now.

Sun Apr 08 16:44:41 UTC 2018

Installing some stuff.

Ate some pineapple.

Sun Apr 08 17:24:14 UTC 2018

I woke up on the same time on a weekend as on a normal day, Stephan. This is a rare occurance for me, and a good sign. I'm also slowly starting to fall asleep earlier, and I think with some morning zeitgeber I can start waking up earlier.

Anywho, Saturday is for personal productivity, and I need to organize my physical home space.

Sleep deprivation! Woo! I just finished a book that does a very good job telling you how horrible it is for you.

I think I "only" lost an hour's worth of good sleep. So it's not too bad, but the different between yesterday and today is night and day (pun?).

Thu Apr 05 21:10:00 UTC 2018

Trying my best to maintain some good habits without being too hard on myself.

Thu Apr 05 21:48:05 UTC 2018

Nuts mislabeled for calories, probably ate 10 times more than I meant to.

Fri Apr 06 04:20:58 UTC 2018

Watched The Alt-Right Playbook: Mainstreaming.

Ate pasta with friend as planned. Missed no pages (was worried I might). Ate 4 servings of cashew ice cream.

Fri Apr 06 04:36:20 UTC 2018

Watching Nameless 7 Part 5.

Which makes me want to rewatch the Turtle song.

Perhaps also a Eulogy in Song Form.

Wed Apr 04 16:50:13 UTC 2018

Today, I am trying to plan my calories like I timeblock my day. I'd like to eat at specific times of day, and eat a certain amount. I like heavy-loading one meal a day, so my goal is light snacks with some protein during other meal times (as my doctor recommended).

Like my timeblock, this plan is dynamic and flexible to change.

Wed Apr 04 16:52:39 UTC 2018

I'm really excited about my sleep, Stephan. Though, I must be careful not to be too confident in its stability. This has happened several times before and each time I eventually fell back into my drift.

Though, this time feels different, because the other times I tried to maintain a schedule I drifted into, whereas this time I actually had the experience of my sleep schedule fixing itself. The main takeway being that it's actually possible. I'm not broken. Well, not always broken (again, it may not stay stable).

Thu Apr 05 03:26:24 UTC 2018

Today's action item: clear out capture notebook. Got lots of stuff in here. I'm thinking I can put these things into a spark file. Also, I can create a spark file.

I bought a sunrise alarm clock (should be here tomorrow). I'm maintaining the naps that occurred naturally in Indiana. I've installed f.lux on all my devices. I'm planning to get those blue-light-blocker glasses (or maybe a sleep mask).

I'm doing this to replicate as many of the variables I noticed whilst in Indiana. I napped in Indiana (first time I've really did normal less-than-an-hour naps). I slept in a place where the sunrise was unavoidable. I was always aware of the sun set (pretty common in Seattle, though). I used my electronic devices significantly less (thus seeing less blue light).

There are other things I'm almost certainly missing, but I'll start with these and see if I can stablize my schedule and maybe even trick it into falling asleep even earlier. My favorite time to wake up is 0400, after all (though that may be unrealistic for a variety of reasons).

Wed Apr 04 17:11:31 UTC 2018

Went ahead and bought both a sleep mask and blue-light-blocker glasses.

Now it is time to organize my email, checklists, goals, etc.

Wed Apr 04 17:28:49 UTC 2018

Only had time to organize email today (had a lot of personal email to sift through). I organized work email and work goals yesterday, though, so I'm mostly organized. Got to sift through personal goals and actions tomorrow, though, maybe.

I'm finding this strong desire to go to a time-wasting site. It's like a muscle-memory habit. Right now I have them all in my "Premium Sites", except YouTube.

Adding YouTube.

Okay, now it's proper deep-work time at my job. I'm on-call this week, so normally that means no doing "real" work. However, my assigned task was testing infrastructure, which falls in line on stuff to do during down-time on-call.

Wed Apr 04 17:35:57 UTC 2018

Setup phone to charge and play music. Now it's time to work on work, so switching to private diary.

Wed Apr 04 17:37:21 UTC 2018

Doing some neck stretches.

Wed Apr 04 17:39:15 UTC 2018

Taking off watch.

Wed Apr 04 17:44:54 UTC 2018

Bathroom break.

Wed Apr 04 17:47:06 UTC 2018

I have noticed a habit of mine a couple years ago. Once I eliminate most distractions, there are several "good habits" I take advantage of for further distractions. One specific example is drinking water. I will drink a lot of water after removing browsing, snacking, and sweet drinks. Usually I just allowed this, but it leads to a lot of wasted time, both sipping water and going to the bathroom.

So, I'll allow a refill of my glass every hour. That's plenty of water throughout the day, without it being a distraction I abuse.

Wed Apr 04 18:21:16 UTC 2018

Had some alerts to deal with. Well, have. I'm blocked on what to do with the priority item, though.

Wed Apr 04 18:34:19 UTC 2018

Moar water!

Wed Apr 04 18:53:44 UTC 2018

I'm feeling extremely mentally fatigued. Good timing, I think. Time for lunch break.

Updating timeblock.

Wed Apr 04 19:21:46 UTC 2018

Woah. Those black bean chips and that avocado basically hit my quota for "lunch". Good to know.

Wed Apr 04 19:27:12 UTC 2018

Scheduling doctor appointments. Calling sleep doctor first. Scheduling appointment and asking for ENT recommendation.

Doctor Yang was ENT recommendation. (206) 215-1770. I think that number is fine to have on public diary, probably public.

Left a message. They'll call back "within 24-hours".

Wed Apr 04 19:40:31 UTC 2018

Did a five-minute twitter scroll.

Wed Apr 04 20:09:37 UTC 2018

Hung out with peers during lunch, ate an apple.

Wed Apr 04 20:12:52 UTC 2018

Back to work.

Wed Apr 04 20:22:55 UTC 2018

Distracted myself with various tasks I've been putting off. I think I may try taking a nap. It's a bit early, so we'll see if I succeed.

Wed Apr 04 21:27:07 UTC 2018

Don't think I napped, but I do feel a bit rested. I stopped at 1400 PDT and have been doing POST-MORTEM OpsLead stuff.

I think I'll try napping again at 1500 PDT.

Wed Apr 04 22:42:11 UTC 2018

Might not nap today. Though maybe I did and it was super light earlier? Not sure. Resting on the couch might've been enough rest to stop another attempt. Or I just tried too early today (yesterday I napped at 1600). I thought I'd need to do it earlier as I woke up a bit earlier. I also mentally tired myself out much sooner.

Tomorrow I'll try at 1600 as per normal, I think.

Wed Apr 04 22:48:39 UTC 2018

Going to actually look at my logs and get a feel for when I nap relative to shen I wake-up.

Wed Apr 04 22:51:59 UTC 2018

Looking at it, my good naps are about 8 hours separated from waking up. Meaning about now would actualy be the time to nap. I'll keep that in mind tomorrow and regardless of fatigue try to nap at the 8-hour wake mark.

Also, this marks the first time I can think of wherein I looked at my pattern of behavior via my timeblock towards some sort of future plan. Woo!

Wed Apr 04 23:03:29 UTC 2018

Read some FiveThirtyEight before getting back to work.

Thu Apr 05 00:00:27 UTC 2018

Time to head home.

Thu Apr 05 02:05:11 UTC 2018

Doing a surprisingly good job keeping to schedule. Time for some Overwatch.

Thu Apr 05 05:24:43 UTC 2018

Met a wicked sweet artist named Kirsten Zirngibl. She's done various MTG art. Bought a matt off her before she brings that swag to sell at the Magic tournament happening this week in Seattle.

Reading: Replace Your To-Do List With Interstitial Journaling To Increase Productivity.

Interestingly enough, I've already basically decided to do this. Though, I don't put everything here. I put some stuff in my .plan file on my work computer. Keep work stuff at work (and also avoid making things public that I'm not allowed to make public).

Wed Apr 04 00:30:22 UTC 2018

Finished reading that article just in time for some room mate communication.

I think now's the time to go grocery shopping at the local bulk foods store.

Rearranged bedroom instead. Now going to make a banana oatmeal snack and make plans to head to friend's house.

Watching some Fitzyhere (Overwatch streamer).

Wed Apr 04 06:16:35 UTC 2018

This is where I would jot down some thoughts. But I'm tired. Also, I did little mini things throughout the day. I'd like to be more consistent about that in future. Lots of changes to usual today. Exciting.

New tag in today's post: "thinking". I'm trying to have something to say in every daily entry now. Add a proper human touch. Get a dialog going with my past/future selves, Stephan.

Though doing so just reminds me of someone who told me all these daily questions and timeblocks create a lot of visual noise for anyone who just reads these parts. I'll probably reinstate goals and goal-tracking in the day-to-day (because I really like doing that). Splitting this diary into a log with all the templated stuff and, well, an actual diary may be one of those goals.

One of the first goals, however, will be the recreation of checklists for morning and evening routines and attempts at making those checklists a proper habit.

Tue Apr 03 04:59:33 UTC 2018

Did my end of day routine ad-hoc today. Lots of stuff to organize before I can make a concrete checklist that is containable within a half-hour. I "caught up" on my tickler today. Which is to say I took the last month and a half of ignored tickler and put it in my inbox, and then I divided up the items by priority over the next few days (or threw items I can ignore into next month). I know that if I'm regular about tickler, I can maintain a healthy inbox of things to do. So I'm hoping to catch up slowly, but also tackle priority things first.

And by priority, I mean taxes. This is the longest I've waited to do taxes since I've done them. (ETA: Meaning this is the longest I've waited to do taxes in my history of doing taxes.)

Tue Apr 03 17:19:55 UTC 2018

Evening sleep questions:

  • Did you nap today? How many times? When? How long?
    • Yes. Nap from 1600 to 1630
  • Did you consume any medicine that you do not take on a daily basis? What? How much? When?
    • No.
  • Did you have any caffeinated or alcoholic beverages today? What? How much? When?
    • 100 mg caffeine at 1000 (Teas' peach ginger black tea, 500 mL).

Back in Seattle. Been 17 days since I was home, Stephan. Quite an adventure, though. Whilst on the plane I watched some YouTube vidoes I had downloaded via youtube-dl. A neat little tool that I feel 100% right using considering YouTube Red has download as a feature on mobile but I want to watch it on a laptop with a bigger screen (oh, also, trying out YouTube Red).

Once I ran out of downloaded content, I continued to listen to Why We Sleep on the audiobook I have on download from the library. The paper version is on hold for me at the library, as well. I'm considering trying out listening whilst reading.

In any case, I'm up way later than my current clock thinks I should be. And I want to try my best to maintain this schedule that I naturally fell into in Indiana. So time to sleep.
