Lots of social stuff today. Had to work pretty late to get my pomodoros in. Let's try to stop at a reasonable time tomorrow. Though of note I could've stopped earlier but was addicted to the problem.

Watched today:

Time to type.

Dream:

I was at my aunt's. My mentor from Mixpanel was there. We were eating cereal. He asked me if it was hard to find vegan milk. Not really. The end.

Got 13 pomodoros in today. Pushed a solid number of PRs and have one ready for review.

Climbed today. Will go with Wednesday/Friday/Sunday plan.

I started with my end-of-day review hoping to use leftover time afterwards, but I'm already in my 3rd pomodoro of this review. Ended up doing extra stuff alongside colemak slowing me down. Will hopefully end this pomodoro with some proper climbing practice.

Watched:

15 minutes of typing practice go!

Dream:

I was visiting family at the property. Before my dad noticed me, I overheard him talking about me. "Our relationship has really deteriorated. He needs to find God."

I decide to hang out and not bring up what I overheard. My mom notices stuff on my face and starts picking at it. I slap her hand away a couple times before snapping. "You refuse to respect my boundaries or my agency. It's why I don't hang out very often."

Today, I switched back to QUERTY at work. I'm making good progress, but it just impedes my work too much.

Skipped climbing again today. Will go for Wednesday/Friday/Sunday. I'm already planning on skipping climbing next week as I'll be in SF.

Tested my WPM in QUERTY: ~80 with 97% accuracy. Colemak today is about 30 WPM at 95% accuracy.

Dream:

I had two dreams last night.

The first was a Malcolm in the Middle episode that never existed. The boys find a bear and decide to adopt it as a pet. Shenanigans ensue.

The second dream was sort of like a thriller. It involved a huge snake terrorizing a high school. I had to do some lockdown shenanigans to trap the snake. Surprisingly, no one died in this dream.

My WPM seems to be 13. I didn't measure my WPM before going into this, but I'd say that a reasonable estimate would be around 60.

I get "13" from having used typing cat to learn the keys.

Now, I'm just spending a pomodoro writing in this diary. As I've gotten a bit tired of writing random words and phrases. Going forward, it may make sense to do my end-of-day pomodoro as my first late-day pomodoro, as I don't know exactly how long my checklist will take while I internalize colemak.

Oh, that reminds me. Need to write down my dream.

Adding some "monthly review" items to my weekly review checklist. I did some stuff I liked last week that I don't want to do this week and don't want to forget about doing.

Last weekly review I mentioned updating all of my documentation, but with travel coming up I have moved the start of the plan to the end of this month.

Still at colemak. It's going to be a while before I'm fast.

Dream:

I dreamt that I was visiting family, and then it got really dark. I was playing with the cat and dog, and then I noticed that the bottom half of the cat's front leg was missing. "What happened?"

My mother explained, "Mikayla was having trouble catching the cat, so we cut off some of its leg. Now it's much easier to chase her." And then I saw Mikayla chase after the still surprisingly nimble cat.

"That's terrible. You can't just cripple a cat!" I point at my mother. "You... you're a monster. You hide behind a nice facade but you do things like this. All with a smile."

There was a lot more of me ranting and shouting before the dream ended.

This is slowly being typed with a colemak keyboard layout. Woo. Brain doesn't feel nearly as broken as I was expecting it to.

I think I'll go for keyboard bilingual. As I'll need to be proficient in colemak before I can get away with this at work. Right now I'm at 11 WPM.

I believe I have already memorized the placement of the keys.

Last year, I had some words to say about Bernie Sanders.

Climbing went well.

Today's personal project became setting up my keyboard and learning the colemak keyboard layout. I've memorized where the keys are, but have to fight and relearn muscle memory. I have decided to stick with it at home, but will use QUERTY at work. So expect terse diary posts until I get good.

Doing this is really internalizing how acquiring knowledge isn't learning. I know where the keys are but I haven't learned the layout by any means.

Dream:

I had a lot of abstract dreams throughout the night. Various work-related problems were being solved in my head, as far as I can remember it.

I also had a dream where I was Spiderman and Thanos was slowly torturing me into being his slave. There was a fight early on, but he had both the gauntlet and some silly cape like Dr. Strange's cape, I guess. I lost, he sends me on an errand. It ends with me being upset as he keeps killing people in front of me.

Kind of a messed up dream, to be honest.

Lots of interesting things in the past posts I'm reading. A year ago I was paying attention to my emotional state and maintaining the ability to listen and reflect while angry. Last month was the day before flying to QUAKECON and I was really kicking into MAX POWER mode. And last week I was noting that I need to give my personal project goals some actual time (aka pomodoros).

I'm still working on the personal pomodoro thing, but I keep reflecting on it and I think eventually I'll find the means of keeping the habit.

Got 12 pomodoros in at work. Pushed a thing while also updating the logging and test code. I immediately put that logging code to work with a caching-related bug, that I pushed a PR for and fixed nice and quick. Everything should be in place to focus on front-end work next week.

Also, got 40 pomodoros in 4 days, with an average of 10 per day (because Monday was a holiday). That's pretty sweet. Next week let's get 50.

I skipped climbing as I woke up late this morning. Plan on making up for it tomorrow.

I got in the 2 personal project pomodoros today. Further cleaning up IGDA stuff before diving into IGDA code. Also making sure to be social and keep tabs on various things. Email should be cleaned up tomorrow and I can start tackling the coder-related tasks after that.

It's an insight I've said before again and again, but I'm going to keep writing it down until it becomes a mantra: "Starting a pomodoro gives me energy." It's this magic thing wherein I severely limit acceptable distractions and focus on the task at hand. I could be better about what distractions I allow, and better about focusing on the task at hand, but as far as I can tell I'm moving in the right direction, so we good.

Uncle Tom died a year ago today.

I keep throwing my "Think about Babuska, grand parents, people who're gone" into the future. I need to be in that kind of mood, you know? But.... Perhaps I should try and see if I can call the mood to my side.

Fri Sep 07 04:27:41 UTC 2018

Last month, my mentee got me a pomodoro timer. I use it regularly at home. I quite enjoy it. Not necessary, by any means, but satisfying to use.

Fri Sep 07 04:30:44 UTC 2018

Rubber-duck debug habits as well as code. Worth repeating.

Also worth repeating: "Do a pomodoro to gain energy (it happens!)" But this one I'm actually taking advantage of more and more (though I could've done some right when I got home today and still got some IGDA admin pomodoros in, so I could be better).

Fri Sep 07 04:33:28 UTC 2018

Today was a day I thought for sure would end with a less-than-minimum amount of pomodoros. But here I am at the end of the day and I got 10 pomodoros in at work. It helped immensely that a meeting was moved to tomorrow. Though, even with the meeting, I could've met the minimum.

Just need to achieve that level of consistency at home, now. Skipped out on personal project pomodoros today.

So, with consistent pomodoros means I have so many pomodoros before a certain date. Which is interesting. I have a goal of consolidating all the drop down code and having a "drop-down menu everywhere" by Thursday, the 20th. With today being over, that leaves 9 workdays before the deadline. Meaning 90 pomodoros.

Though, actually, it's 80 pomodoros, because Tuesday the 18th is an all day EPD offsite. But also I'll be in SF that week, so I might be able to do more pomodoros per day. Lots of asterisks, is what I'm saying.

In any case, knowing how many pomodoros I have is interesting. It's a more solid number than days or hours, in it's own way. Also, 80 feels like a lot, and it is. I get a lot done in a week with just short of 50. There's something so interesting about a large amount of pomodoros.

Which is why I need this consistency at home!

Like yesterday, today I started off feeling really tired. Again, though, I have metrics I correlate with success, and I stuck to them. I ended the day deploying something and have done some digging into the next task to tackle. I'm at 3 PRs closed this week. Solid.

The challenge I have been working on at the climb gym has been replaced. The new green in its place is slightly easier. I say this because after a couple tries I completed it. There is also an orange one of the same type of problem. This will be the one I regularly practice, perhaps. Or it may be time to find some other problem type to practice regularly. We'll see.

I decided to skip IGDA plans today to focus on reading. Tomorrow I'll devote an hour to IGDA stuff, though. Need to start scheduling some calls with some clubs.

So, originally today I stopped working after 8 pomodoros. But after grocery shopping and cooking, I decided I wanted to finish something that was done, but not deployed. So I started up a pomodoro and deployed it. The insight here is: "When WFH, work can be more easily be fit into awkward places to allow for execution of things that can only be executed during 'working hours'."

This is a dangerous game to play, to be fair, and should be used intelligently, but perhaps I could have gotten coffee with my wife afterall.

Dream:

I dreamt I was visiting a house where my parents were. I was hooking up various consoles into a television. I played a game that doesn't exist. I packed up to fly home and forgot my clothes. I told my dad as I was leaving. He told me that he found some important piece of equipment in the pipes and that I must've flushed them. Not recalling this in the slightest, I pushed back.

I've already lost a lot of the dream.

Last year, I started volunteering for IGDA. It also marks the day where I started taking having a blog post everyday seriously. Soon we'll see my timeblock show up.

Exciting.

Wed Sep 05 04:58:24 UTC 2018

I was thinking about bus fares and pretax dollars yesterday. I believe the way to think about it is that every $0.75 I spend could be a $1 if it's pretaxed. So, if I spend $120 on bus money each month, that's ($120/0.75 - $120) = $40 saved per month. Or $480 per year.

Same goes for using my FSA on health care spending.

Wed Sep 05 05:02:18 UTC 2018

I am really tired today. Normally, on a day like today, it's all too easy to not get any work done. But I have minimums I'm trying to achieve. And when I start a pomodoro that means doing work. And so I got 8 work pomodoros in. Deployed 2 PRs and have another one ready for review.

Ended up being a good, productive day.
