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).

Fri Jun 29 06:10:02 UTC 2018

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.

Fri Jun 29 06:13:08 UTC 2018

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.

All-hands have demos and I want to use most of the demos.

The most relevant thing for me to use is the png download feature.

I may do the image first thing in the day. Or maybe it's better for weekly reviews. We'll see what I decide.

Justice Kennedy is retiring. The US is a garbage fire and my intention to leave grows everyday.

Though. on the positive end, Ocasio-Cortez.

A month ago, I was in Indiana with family. I was also on call. Did some solid hanging out with family, including my cousin Elizabeth, her husband, daughter, and son.

The beginning of me coding my own web timer began this day with me adding a pomodoro button to my old timer (the one I still use).

I have drawings from this day in my notebook that I should get around to digitizing. Drawings by me of the cousins once removed, and drawings by the girl of me and of her dad.

I have lots of drawings to digitize.

Thu Jun 28 04:17:24 UTC 2018

It was my birthday a week ago. To celebrate, the wife and I finished season 3 of Rick and Morty.

Thu Jun 28 04:18:35 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I had a productive work-from-home day. And I gave the history of my little card that reminds me to think of those who're gone. Everytime I come across it going forward, I'll try to tell a different story, I think.

Thu Jun 28 04:20:27 UTC 2018

Today....

Well, my pomodoros today after this one will be 3 total. That's my planning this morning, one at work, and this end of day review.

It wasn't going to be a productive day anyways, there's a work retreat tomorrow, and a code freeze today, and it was a distracting environment at work. Which is fine. Not everyday needs to be productive.

But.... Justice Kennedy is retiring. This is terrible. Every bit of government is going to have a "conservative" skew for a good while. Democrats should take the house in the midterms, but even that's not guaranteed. The senate is decently unlikely.

And Democrats overall continue to just be the "not outright evil" choice. So many in the party are trying to be Republican lite. Or rather, I guess, real conservative instead of what the word really means now (racist).

Emotionally, I regressed a bit at this news. I ended up going to twitter and reading various things there. Still no reddit. Reddit is gone. Twitter I no longer have an account, so it's limited there. No getting into pointless arguments. If I want to do something, I do something real or I do it here where my words will actually have a positive effect on someone (aka me).

I eventually talked about this news with my wife, and regained energy to cook and stuff. I ended up overeating, but again I have kept sugar out of the equation. I overate on homecooked, protein-rich, basically "healthy" food.

Thu Jun 28 04:28:24 UTC 2018

Today, after climbing, I weighed in at 209.8 pounds. I'm probably like 215 right now with the overeating, and the number isn't that important because it's water weight, but it feels good. I'm getting good feedback on my calorie counting. WIll continue it until I'm below 190, I think. 185 is a good goal.

Thu Jun 28 04:29:42 UTC 2018

Out of time. Some quick links to good stuff I've watched:

Also, I am in the part of the 7 Habits where he talks about "Win-Win or No Deal". A good section, I think. The most powerful part being when even if you're on the win-lose side, if you know the other is losing, you agree to no deal because win-win is what we should strive for. That's some Prisoner's Dilemma stuff right there, but in a scenario not often talked about when talking about that dilemma (agree-to-disagree isn't a part of the dilemma, after all).

Thu Jun 28 04:33:55 UTC 2018

Anyways, I feel gross. So shower and then bed.

Been a while, let's dive into my Timer Remake.

Wed Jun 27 01:40:40 UTC 2018

Out of time. I've made it so there's an "Add Alarm" button that when pressed opens up a input field and a save button. Tomorrow, I'll make it so you can save a url.

Maybe I can even get a youtube video playing there, too. Though I'd really have to hack my way there and then backup and cleanup.

Wed Jun 27 01:42:59 UTC 2018

Anyways, time for IGDA Admin stuff.

Last month: "Time with family! Yeah!"

Wed Jun 27 04:16:39 UTC 2018

Last week, I was in SF trying to quickly kickoff the new work project (coming along pretty well).

Wed Jun 27 04:17:34 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I failed to get some time in on my timer project, and resolved to making sure I got that time in today (success).

Wed Jun 27 04:19:19 UTC 2018

Today....

Today was a lot like yesterday, except I worked from home, and managed to make time for side projects. My total pomodoros today will be 12, but this time one of them is planning and 4 of them are personal projects.

But let's focus on that tickler item I came across this morning.

"Think about Babuska, Grandparents, people who're gone."

This is a physical index card I made on August 22nd, 2014. It was originally: "Call Babuska". Everytime I create an index card for tickler, I mark its creation on the back (e.g. "08/22/14C"). Whenever something significant happens with the card, I mark another date.

Feburary 17th, 2015: Babuska died.

Feburary 21st, 2015: Changed to think about.

"Call" is still on the card. Crossed out. It elicts a semi-hollow feeling to look at it. A slight melancholy.

Thanks to this simple card, for almost 6 months I called my babuska every week until she died. When I found out she was in her final week, I dropped everything and flew to her and saw her one last time.

She wasn't a perfect person, mind you. But she was a wonderful person. And there's a lingering sadness that I won't interact with her again. But I approximate it, here and there. Every once in a while I'll say, "I love you," like she did. She would linger on the word "love" and give it extra energy and even sing it a bit. Sometimes I explicitly say "Babuska hug!" whilst I gently rock someone back and forth in a hug.

I love you, Babuska.

Last year, I didn't write a post. But I flew into NY and got a ride over to Greenwich, CT, for an interview at a place called... something. It's somewhere in my diary. AQR. Financial software place.

Mon Jun 25 14:16:01 UTC 2018

Last month, I flew to Chicago to begin my memorial day weekend with extended family. My mind was continuing its racing from the EPD offsite.

Last week, I was in SF kicking off a new project at work. It was a long, but good day.

Tue Jun 26 04:34:20 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I did my weekly review. I updated my checklists and have added things to capture more of my review of the day.

I considered splitting my .daily checklist into two, but I like that it's the same morning and night. I'm fine with skipping stuff in the morning and skipping things I managed in the morning in the night.

I'm still considering the idea of devoting a day to properly transitioning my stuff to trello. I think I'm good with how things are for now, though. Maybe when I hit this post again in a future review.

Tue Jun 26 04:38:33 UTC 2018

I ended up putting in a lot of work today. All my pomodoros, except for this one, have been work pomodoros (and in a sense this pomodoro is a work pomodoro on work days because I'm reviewing the working day). I even neglected to pomodorize my planning block this morning (forgot to start the timer).

Even so, my final pomodoro count for today will be 12. Which will be the highest number since I started tracking it in Mixpanel.

I have a feeling tomorrow's might be higher, as I'm working from home, and... well, I've been really good about pomodoros at home for personal things. And today already showed that transfers to work just fine (I did 4 pomodoros on my work laptop at home).

That's one of the reasons I'm going to try working from home.

Tue Jun 26 04:42:08 UTC 2018

I flashed a new V2 today climbing. Still got my blisters from Friday, but they aren't hindering me too much. And a new blister joined them while climbing today. I can see my progress in climbing and it's really satisfying.

Tue Jun 26 04:42:56 UTC 2018

I have neglected personal projects again today.... I have to put in the normally allotted time tomorrow!

Tue Jun 26 04:43:16 UTC 2018

Today, I read Why I left Google to join Grab, and it's a good read. I'm now reading Get that job at Grab, and it has a compelling argument for looking for work even if you're happy where you're at.

I've also listened to more 7 Habits. I'm in the "emotional bank" metaphor part of the book. I've already made use of the concept today to the betterment of a relationship.

Tue Jun 26 04:46:06 UTC 2018

There's this YouTuber I regularly watch called Simple Flips. Just mindless entertainment, Stephan.

He had ROM hack competition results as a video today.

While winding down, I'll probably watch Extra Politics #4 - The Rules of Society, Part 1.

Tue Jun 26 04:48:55 UTC 2018

Anyways, I'm well past time. Time for bed!

Last year, I just had enough energy to say that SF was a blast.

Sun Jun 24 14:53:54 UTC 2018

Last month, I started doing pomodoros again. Though I didn't put them in my timeblock as I do now.

I also finally made it so http://ksionda.me actually redirects to this diary instead of my never updated WIP page.

I've made progress on a lot of the goals stated in that post (pomodoro-tracking, personal Mixpanel project), and still have a lot of work to do on other goals (dogfood projects in Mixpanel I'm still not using).

Mon Jun 25 04:11:37 UTC 2018

Last week, my timer was in a working state, and just needed alarms. It's basically still in that state. I played with some means of implementation, and have decided that it is better to continue on my path and do a post-mortem and update how I implement things in the future (or even clean the timer up if I'm so inclined).

Mon Jun 25 04:12:55 UTC 2018

Yesterday, the wife and I had a bad comic-con experience. Or rather, we had a non-con experience due to poor communication on the con's side. I had considered doing a charge back based on principle, but I won't. Also on principle. I didn't keep the tickets, I gave them away. Probably to someone planning to resell them. I hope they got used. Next time, I'll keep the possibility of a chargeback in my mind to force a refund when I'm not on the erring side.

But, I'm still mostly proud of how I handled the situation. It wasn't perfect, but it was a marked improvement over previous bad experiences, and the wife and I are over it today. Or rather, we haven't mentioned it and I have no residual anger. It is done.

Mon Jun 25 04:16:52 UTC 2018

Okay, so, today. Today was good. No timer remake stuff today, which is too bad, as I'd like to get it to alarm state and move to using it over my old timer. But it's fine.

Something I haven't been mentioning, because I do it in tandem with other things in my timeblock, is that I've been listening to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. There are some parts of it I find problematic (basically I find it a bit ableist), but overall I think it is a useful thing for me to consume at this point in time. I have figured out the how, and it is giving me the what, is how I feel about it. Lots of good vocabulary and perspectives.

I have mentioned this, but before this I relistened to Deep Work, and also got a lot out of it.

Further (and this has been in my time block), I've been reading Training for Climbing, though I returned that to the library today. I read carefully the parts about mental attitude, and then skimmed the workout parts and what I should focus on. Basically, the argument there was, as a beginner, focus on climbing above other exercise (because I'm learning to climb and form over muscle for now), practice what I'm bad at, and I'll come back to the book in a year or so when I'm past the beginner stage.

I'll also do the exercises I want to focus on right now (pull ups and ab exercises) simply because I like getting stronger in those areas.

But also of note is that the mental part of the book had a lot of overlap with Deep Work and the 7 Habits. And even went over the exact same learning curve that The First 20 Hours dove into. It's really interesting to see all these sources cover the same ground from their own angle.

Mon Jun 25 04:24:18 UTC 2018

I'm making smooth progress on a project at work and am trying to remind myself to start using Mixpanel to track our progress there. I'm also regularly talking with customers about pain points relevant to what I'm working on, which is great and really motivates me. Further, I am overflowing with additional ideas which I've been storing in my work trello account.

Mon Jun 25 04:25:47 UTC 2018

Last Friday I basically skinned my hands climbing. Three blisters on my right hand and one on my left. Ouch. I was focusing on a particularly hard (for me) bouldering challenge, and after regularly getting past the beginning and getting a feel for the process, I decided to try really hard to finish it. I got four or so grips away from the end as I dug my hand into a grip. Ouch.

I think it was worth it. I learned a lot from the experience.

Mon Jun 25 04:27:45 UTC 2018

The timer remake has been slow-moving as I played with implementation details. We should be back to regular movement starting tomorrow. Hopefully before Tahoe I'll have switched to using it.

Mon Jun 25 04:28:59 UTC 2018

I've added some questions to my "Review the Day", as I'd like to be better about capturing various things, and sometimes I forget because my mind is focused elsewhere. I also skipped a lot of things because the morning does a good enough job most time and I'd like more time for reviewing these posts.

I may want to consider having a .planning checklist and a .nightly checklist or something.

Something to consider.

Mon Jun 25 04:30:47 UTC 2018

Anyways, I'm in the last minute of my pomodoro. I like how this review came out a lot. Loving the constant iterations on my system based on my observed needs.

Last year, there wasn't a post, but I had what I would later call a "religious experience" in SF. I had an interview with Mixpanel, followed by hanging out with my friends, and getting some good food. I then took a red-eye flight back to Indiana, where I saw Your Name, and made a temporary friend named Sandy whom told me "I bet you got the job", and bought me some airplane whiskey (which was pretty delicious) to celebrate.

Sat Jun 23 15:22:13 UTC 2018

Last month was the Mixpanel EPD off-site in SF. Long day, but good day, indeed. I also discussed how a friend of mine mentioned I exhibit similar focusing strategies as him and that he was recently diagnoised with ADHD.

Sat Jun 23 15:24:07 UTC 2018

Last week was a weekly review, and I may want to reread the post more carefully during my proper weekly review (which reminds me, I need that to be in my plan).

I'll reivew the rest of the post during my end of day review.

Sat Jun 23 15:34:18 UTC 2018

Let's do some timer stuff.

Sun Jun 24 02:08:27 UTC 2018

I'm physically tired from yesterday and emotionally tired from the events of today, so I'm going to move my weekly review to tomorrow (which actually makese sense, as today was basically a wife day and we already agreed that tomorrow would thus not be).

We'll see if I still do my end of day review or skip it today. But for now, Overwatch.

Sun Jun 24 04:12:15 UTC 2018

This morning, I skimmed last month a bit and for reasons I already don't remember, I wanted to read it again. So let's do that.

Wait, I wanted to redo for last week. That's how well I remember. Ah, yes, weekly review stuffs.... I guess I can give this a proper review tomorrow morning (I'll do my weekly review right after my planning pomodoro, I think).

Moving on, then.

Sun Jun 24 04:28:15 UTC 2018

Yesterday was my wife's birthday.

Sun Jun 24 04:29:21 UTC 2018

Which leads us to today....

Today didn't go so well. The wife and I recovered, but it was painful for a bit. We tried to go to comic con, and we bought tickets, and we waited in line.

And they wouldn't let use bring our metal reusable cups in. Even though the person behind us was wearing a ton of metal and was waved through. My wife... is diabled. Staying in line once was already too much for her, and we really like our reusable cups and aren't about to throw them away.

I wanted to see if I could get a refund, and the answer was no.

I was a bit angry, but I kept things fairly under control. I had a heated discussion with my wife, and she also did a good job keeping it under control. A person interuptted our conversation to ask if we'd sign a petition (something we've already done), and I, in my heated tone, explained to him that 1) we already signed that petition, and 2) we were clearly away from the line, and having a conversation, and I definitely do not appreciate being intruded upon. "I agree with what you're trying to do but learn to read people better, please." He got defensive and I ended the conversation there.

I went back to the ticket counter and said it'd be appreciated if they explained what wasn't allowed into the comic con area before selling the tickets. It's a clear design flaw in my opinion. You have to buy the non-refundable tickets before going through the line. The ticket-booth has no line. The woman behind the counter gave me a blank stare and said, "The information is available online."

....

So is buying tickets! Why would I go to the counter if I went online and bought tickets online? And, also, fact-check: the only quote about metal at all on their website is here: "ACE Comic Con has a strict weapon ban for metal, glass, plexiglass and stone weapons. Beyond that, it is completely at the discretion of our guests what they are willing to sign. Ask them prior to purchasing the autograph."

This is under the autograph section, and is worded as "weaponry". A cup is not a weapon. I'm actually considering trying a chargeback now. We weren't allowed to use services paid for based on incomplete information not given at the time of sale. I don't even care about the money. It's a principle sort of thing.

I've made a trello action item for it.

Sun Jun 24 04:48:38 UTC 2018

Anyways, we made sure to do other things in the day and recovered pretty well. Not a big deal overall.

Sat Jun 23 04:34:04 UTC 2018

I didn't have a post last year.... On my wife's birthday.

Probably forgiveable, actually, as I was flying to SF for my Mixpanel interview.

Sat Jun 23 04:34:31 UTC 2018

Last month, I celebrated planning my day first thing (I get to celebrate that most everyday now), even though I was in SF.

I also started using 4DX terminology like "whirlwind", which I still like talking about. Today was a super whirlwind day, in fact.

Sat Jun 23 04:36:32 UTC 2018

Last week, I noted the desire to start a habit of writing down how fast I run to work. I'm hit-or-miss (and would've forgotten today if not for reviewing that post).

I also note that my review of the past is usually in relation to what I've done today. This remains the truth, and I'm still "good with this". It's actually a large part of the value.

I was struggling with work pomodoros last week, and that remains true this week (though yesterday was super good).

Sat Jun 23 04:40:28 UTC 2018

Yesterday was a solid system day that I'm pretty satisfied with. I'd like to make it a common type of day.

Sat Jun 23 04:42:13 UTC 2018

Today... my attention was fractured. I needed to be better about fitting in pomodoros when I could. As a result, I'm way behind where I wanted to be at this point. I may do some work on the weekend to catch up. But no more than an hour or two (explicitly no more than 4 pomodoros).

Oh, also, I have decided, contrary to one of the posts I reviewed today, that I now have an explicit goal of losing weight. I tore my hands up climbing today, and it's made me think that being lighter will make both running and climbing easier, and I also wouldn't mind being lighter than 200 pounds again. So, I'll be aiming for 2500 caloires a day. This should, I think, lead to about a pound lost per week (as I normally eat about 3000 and have been staying stable there, and 3500 calories is a pound).

Anyways, time to go wind down and spend the last bit of the day with the birthday wife.

Played with event setup in my timer today. No functional progress. No change to event setup, either. It's a tradeoff, implementation-wise. I think for what I want to implement, using the global event-manager makes sense.

....

Mostly.

It makes sense that the events the timer itself currently emits stay events. E.g. tick, clear, pause. As various arbitrary things may listen to those events (e.g. youtube alarms, pomodoro trackers). But some events I throw because I'm used to that pattern. But no event needs be thrown.

In any case, I think it's better to just go down the road I'm going down, and post-mortem my decisions instead of jumping around between different ones. So tomorrow, back to focusing on getting YouTube alarms in.

Fri Jun 22 02:42:56 UTC 2018

Anyways, I'm already five minutes into my end-of-day review. Consider the above my review of today. Well, part of it. There's more to say if I get to it.

Last month, I made a temporary friend, Jenna. She was cool. I'll never see her again. That's okay.

Also last month, I noted how there were posts in this here diary over a year old, and I was inspired to reflect onposts one year old, one month old, one week old, and one day old every day. I quite like this habit you decided to start, past me. Thank you for starting it (though you forgot about reviewing the previous week for a while).

"The 4 Disciplines of Execution is proving to be a great read in its own right, and ironically may be giving me the framework I need to make serious progress on projects." I believe it indeed gave me the framework I needed.

In fact, just today I thought about how it's great that I developed this habit of collecting data, but I had nothing to focus on improving using that data. 4DX explicitly points out why metrics need goals to drive them else they're really just fun facts. Right now, I have some simple meta goals (more pomodoro per day), and specific project goals. And I now reflect on that data I collect and use it to drive change in my habits to achieve the goals I want.

And it's pretty awesome.

Oh, yeah, last month I was also in SF.

Fri Jun 22 02:57:10 UTC 2018

Last week, I noted how cool it was to see the progress I've made in a week. Still cool. Not as much progress as last time.

Fri Jun 22 03:02:03 UTC 2018

Yesterday, I made a plan to go to work early to get some office-time to myself to be productive. I did get there early, but ended doing some bad browsing habits. Not sure why. Perhaps the morning productivity provides a warm-up, or maybe I actually have the habit of distracting myself at work? In any case, I addressed it and did a solid 6 pomodoros at work. A mere 2 pomodoro away from my long-term stable goal. Though, specifically, my goal will be 40 a week, with some variability allowed day-to-day.

Today was a good day, and I finally rolled over my 401k to Vanguard from my old work account.

In any case, it's time for some Overwatch.

A friend of mine has started making a C++ game with his new ample free time. This has convinced me to also make time to learn C++ game dev stuff. Going to have to subtract some Overwatch from my schedule, I think, as all the other things need to stay in.

So, my hour to Overwatch on M/W/F (except Wednesday/Friday this week for birthday reasons) will now be C++ game dev time.

Wed Jun 20 20:34:05 UTC 2018

I just read Democratizing Data. I made it a pomodoro, because it's content that's very relevant to my work (I'm now on the data management team).

There's also complementary slides.

Building trust in data is the main goal of the data management team. This article is both good reference material to store for later, and something to chew on. Though the technology stack will inevitably be much different.

Fresh 27-year-old me didn't bother making a birthday post last year (lazy).

Thu Jun 21 04:10:07 UTC 2018

Last month, I returned home from Vancouver. I believe I also finished The 4 Disciplines of Execution.

Last week, I went to Vertical World for the first time (I'll go every other Wednesday I think).

I also got my timer to a spot where it counts down from 10. Doesn't take me very long to get it to a much better state. Tomorrow I'll be back to doing timer stuff.

Though, I'm considering rethinking my Tuesdays/Thursdays. I think it'd be better to get to work early (to get some super productive alone-time at the office). I then leave early and get my 2 hours of side-projects when I get home.

I think I'll try that tomorrow.

Yesterday, I got back from a good two-day work trip to SF.

And I'm out of time. The planning and the end-of-day pomodoros are really necessary. I'm glad I do them.

Also, the return of Trello to the daily checklist! I actually refer to it a lot now. Instead of sending myself emails for actions, I just make 'em in Trello now. Still got email actions to port over, but weekly review will eventually tackle that.

No end of day review yesterday. Probably won't be one today, either.

Got to get as much as I can in during the morning planning.

Last year was the last day of me being 26. Which means that today is the last day of me being 27!

Anyways, I linked to a YouTube video that dismantled a YouTuber called Bill Whitle, who is someone that another YouTuber I'm in contact with (still) called TheDavoo.

I'm still in agreement with a year ago me on these things.

I also think that the "working hard to justify opinions already held" is a generally prevalent problem. Something even I still do, though I work hard to identify when I'm doing it.

Last month was an unplanned Saturday in Vancouver, WA.

"Eventually I will learn a means of keeping my systems intact when in a new environment." I think I've made progress there, but we'll have to see how I do on vacation.

Last week, I noted a lot of progress I made on pain points past me noted. I'm still working on pain points noted last week, though. For example, right now I'm not in a pomodoro. I've already spent two on planning, and was hoping I'd finish this well before the end of a third one (I'm getting close to it being worth a third one).

Sometimes I have a lot of stuff to process. Especially when I skip the end of day review and plan on skipping it again. Perhaps three is just fair?

In any case, progress there is slow, but it exists, I think.

Yesterday was a kickoff of a new project at work. Lots of good thinking done. Now it's time to get work done and iterate on that thinking.
