Usually I put calories here. I could try to backlog everything I ate today, but eh. Sick days can be cheat days there. Definitely wasn't being too mindful of what I was eating, but I did manage to not eat anything with added sugar. So, that's quite a bit of progress.

Pretty tired this morning. Just wanted to lay in bed. Also had a really solid nap at 1415. Hope my sleep is still stable.

Spent a good chunk of the morning watching YouTube instead of working on personal projects.... What this means is something I'll need to reflect on.

Sun Apr 29 04:23:24 UTC 2018

No project stuff today.... Try, try again and reflect on why I'm not doing things, I think.

Otherwise a cool, fun day. Lots of Magic: the Gathering.

I'd like to more regularly experiment with working remotely, but today could've been more productive at work, I think.

I'll try again in a couple weeks.

Sat Apr 28 04:15:01 UTC 2018

Not much to say about today. I like tutoring. Though, I've only tutored and helped friends. And I do it without real payment. I mean, payment has happened after the fact.

Didn't eat the protein at the desired times today. That's okay. Still getting plenty of food at a good balance, overall. Making good gains in exercise.

Today marks the day I've been climbing Monday/Wednesday/Friday for two weeks. During that time I've run to work and back from work almost every weekday. Three days I only ran to work or from work. That's some solid exercise.

I have not started on personal projects, yet. Which is unfortunate, but acceptable. I should be starting proper tomorrow morning. If I don't, there is some personal mental block that I need to find, research, and resolve.

There's a long road ahead of me towards my goals. Standing idle is sometimes valuable, but I need to make sure I don't do too much of it.

Time for TV.

Had a really interesting dream last night, Stephan. I would say based on its contents that it was a nightmare, but nightmares used to make me scared to sleep and now I just consider them an novel experience, so it doesn't feel like a nightmare to me anymore.

I was in a restaurant, and it was pretty normal at first. It wasn't a restaurant I had ever been to, but it had a '50s vibe to it. Then everything changed, and it was a Russian restaurant, and the person at the counter told me I had the wrong currency to pay.

I go outside and it's cold, and I'm lost. I go to walk into a building and suddenly I'm in a different place again. Every door I go in takes me to a different place.

I start muttering to myself.

I am losing my mind.

I am losing my mind.

Suddenly I am back to my original destination, and a person appears. This person in no way looks like my actual dad, but the character I am in the dream identifies him as such. And also thinks that he should be dead.

I realize I'm sitting down. I stand up, and everything glitches out. The visuals flicker between the restaurant and a black-and-white checkered background. My "dad" doesn't flicker. He stays constant.

This is VR!

I go to take off a headset and one comes off. I'm holding it in my hands now, but the scene stays the same. I drop the headset and take off another one. Another and another.

I am losing my mind.

I am losing my mind.

I am losing my mind.

I wake up. It's 0300. I go back to sleep.

Thu Apr 26 16:25:41 UTC 2018

Forgot my waffles in the freezer. Updating breakfast.

Thu Apr 26 16:29:29 UTC 2018

The dream still swirls in my thoughts. Makes me think of a song.

Thu Apr 26 16:31:45 UTC 2018

Let's do some work.

Fri Apr 27 04:26:02 UTC 2018

Did good work today.

I like my current mindset. Today, for a variety of reasons, I bused home. The whole time I was actively loathing the decision. It felt like I was choosing to be lazy and spending money for the luxary. It was the right decision today, but I want to keep that mindset, because it's really good that I run to and from work. It feels good. It keeps me stretching regularly (I even stretch when I get to work now). It helps me note anything that seems physically troubling.

The reasons I bused today were:

  • I plan on working remotely tomorrow so I brought my stuff home
  • I needed to grab some things from the Target near work
  • I've been doing a lot of exercise and needed to tone it down a bit today, just in case

I made a deal with the nagging part of my brain to run that after climbing tomorrow morning, I would still run to work and then run right back home. That way, I missed just one run of the 10 in the week.

Time for TV.

Still need to brush and floss, but otherwise the routine is done.

Today was a good day. Tomorrow will be more productive, though.

In any case, I enjoy reading a lot. And for that reason, I think I'm going to need to stop reading Getting Things Done, and start doing some of the stuff in that book, and codifying some of the stuff in The First 20 Hours whilst I still have access to that book (due next Monday).

So, the plan will be to do some thinking and some research tomorrow morning in setting up my website. And some doing, hopefully.

That is all.

Planning my day before going to work today, Stephan.

When I get to work, I can renegotiate the working day timeblock once I've checked email and stuff during my start of work routine.

I'd like to consistently be at work at the same times of day each day, so on mornings that I don't climb, I'm going to do some stuff at home. Today, it's reading more Getting Things Done.

Tue Apr 24 14:47:48 UTC 2018

I have reached part 2 of the book. Part 2 is the coaching part. Considering the fact that I own this book, I may let being inspired by this part lead me to action and stop reading for a bit to do the thing the book is talking about.

The huge review of all my stuff is coming.

Tue Apr 24 14:52:59 UTC 2018

I have a notebook to digitize, but items on it are related to projects, and I haven't setup a project infrastructure yet. Oh, well, I'm going to put it in my Spark File for right now, and during my review of all the things I'll put it in a proper place.

Tue Apr 24 15:01:18 UTC 2018

Okay, time to run to work.

Tue Apr 24 15:57:37 UTC 2018

Planning before coming to work is feeling pretty powerful. At the very least, I should do up to the calories before running to work.

Wed Apr 25 04:14:52 UTC 2018

Had poor self-control after cooking today. Ended up playing Overwatch for way too long. Did manage to get some reading of Getting Things Done in, though. I'm thinking about how I want to go about reviewing all my stuff.

My filing cabinet definitely has a bunch of stuff I don't need anymore. Also, I have a pretty good scanner I could use to digitize a lot of stuff.

Anyways, I need to brush and floss.

Wed Apr 25 04:22:09 UTC 2018

Work today went really well. Still have a ways to go on the task I'm working on, but the end is in sight.

Oh, also, I've been reading the Infinity Gauntlet at work. My boss brought in the huge hard-cover. It's pretty good. I'm not too worried about spoiling the upcoming movie, because the movie will be really different. It'll be interesting to see if anything from the comics show up and how.

Don't really have much to say today. Even though things didn't go according to plan, it was a good day and I did stuff and I'm still excited for the future.

Oh, one thing to note: it's interesting to see my weight fall so much. I know it's water weight, but wow, that's a lot of water weight. Interested to see the rate that I lose weight once I'm burning off fat. I have quite a bit of muscle to gain yet.

Getting distracted by various personal chores. Should focus on work....

Mon Apr 23 23:37:30 UTC 2018

Today ended up being a lot of looking at random things. Important things, mostly, mind you. Not browsing for the sake of browsing. But not focusing on the the priority thing.

These things happen. What's important is to consider what I can do to avoid this in the future. I think I'm already on the right track. I'm rereading Getting Things Done and there's a lot of good advice in there for stuff like that.

I'm also at a new part of my current task that simply requires thinking about what I'm doing before doing. This thinking should be done in my private .plan file, which is what I'll be doing now.

Mon Apr 23 23:49:26 UTC 2018

Made an ad hoc plan for the week, culminating with the finishing of this task on Friday. Well, finished as in I move on to other things. Really I'll keep updating it because this task is important and there'll be lots of follow-up work to do related to it and related to future tasks (aka building tests for the next task).

Tue Apr 24 04:18:53 UTC 2018

It's interesting to me to see how my weight flutuates throughout the day, so I'm capturing it at various times of day. Really, once when I wake up and once when I'm about to shower after running home and stretching.

Things did not go according to timeblock today. At all. That's okay. Timeblock is negiotiable. What's not okay is that I didn't do a good time negiotiating. Sure, I told myself what I should be doing, but I didn't switch to that. I was in an obsessive mood, but not on a current priority.

Something to recognize and work my way out of in the future. I do this sometimes when I'm trying to sleep, and manage to get out okay via a sort've meditation. Perhaps that is a good goal.

  1. Recongize.
  2. Meditate.
  3. Try again.

I've been making my after-run stretching meditation. I used to use my watch to track the duration of a stretch, and now I count my breaths. Keeps me focused on solid breathing while stretching. Clears the mind. I got the idea after reading the yoga chapter of The First 20 Hours.

Dentist appointment today went well. Teeth are perfectly healthy. I told my dentist that I brush, floss, and listerine in the morning and brush at night. She recommended I floss at night (once a day is fine). Also, listerine is a preference thing. Not necessary. Think I'll stop that, then.

Haven't banned blogs from my information diet. Read quite a few today. They're all premium sites, but my currency is in the 700s now so that's not really a concern. It's about my current philosophy being rock-hard against reddit, twitter, and the like. My life is so much better without them. But the blogs.... I'm not sure. The webcomics I can go back to, but the blogs I probably won't.

Perhaps blogs should be a Sunday thing, though. Sunday morning paper sort of thing.

Anyways, the blogs I read today are:

I'm really into atheist blogs that have a lot of politics and also a lot of criticism to put forth towards the atheist community. All three of these blogs do that often. The Love Joy Feminism post was interesting because it falls in line with my experience a little bit.

Anyways, I'm out of time for my end of day routine. See ya tomorrow.

I have finished The First 20 Hours.

I will review its earlier chapters, do some writing and codifying of some things here in my diary, make a plan for my first lovable project and then return the book to the library so someone else can read the book.

But today belongs to the wife, and it's about time she wakes up, so I'll devote some time tomorrow to that (already breaking the rule the book states, but I'm pretty good about doing what I say I'll do on the day I say I'll do it)..

Sun Apr 22 22:12:16 UTC 2018

Nap time.

Sun Apr 22 23:47:04 UTC 2018

I have spent some time continuing my rereading of Getting Things Done. I have decided it is worthwhile to finish reading this before devoting time to my site. I will read this book, transfer my thinking from both Getting Things Done and The First 20 Hours into diary form, and then set about remaking this site.

Mon Apr 23 04:25:28 UTC 2018

Frustrating games of Overwatch today. Good kind of frustrating, though. Barely lost in a non-toxic team, and there were some clear things I could've done better to win.

Anyways, time to watch some TV.

Had a solid amount of family time today, Stephan. My sister was in town so we went to coffee and then to a nice Vietnamese place. There was more going on but the wife and I got tired so we bused home. Along the way, we got some stuff at Target (loving me that Ripple pea milk), and when I got home I took a fairly delayed nap. I was really feeling like a good nap starting around what's become my usual nap time (1300) up until I finally took one.

That's an interesting development. The dip for a npa is supposedly pretty narrow, circadian-rhythm-wise. Or so I think. Maybe narrow isn't really that narrow? Something to ponder.

For my end-of-day routine: I had a protein shake and cleaned the kitchen a bit. I then brushed my teeth. Then I started filling in this post (updating info above and writing thoughts here). That's basically it.

Seems the exercise really does impact how much I eat in a day. Was quite capable of eating less than 3000 calories today, what with no running 4.6 miles and no going climbing. I wonder how much I'll eat tomorrow.

I'm really enjoying The First 20 Hours. I have about 20 pages left. Every single thing he learned was interesting. Though the last chapter about windsurfing isn't making me want to learn some parallel.

Every other chapter, though, has been pretty powerful. Yoga was a good parallel for me with climbing. His making a website with my goal to rebuild this one proper, and also make several sites. Relearning touch typing was something I had brushed off but his experience was pretty convincing, and also it reminded me how I wanted to start building the habit of improving my development environment and/or switch environments for the sake of proper exploration.

And his methodology gives me a better system to dive into. No ambient learning via usage. Identify what I don't like or what I'm bad at and work on it directly by either practicing it or changing something.

His learning the board game Go even made me think that I should at least learn it, Stephan. Though, the way he ended the chapter made me rethink that.

The chapter on learning to play the ukulele poked at my earlier attempt to learn piano this year. I was just getting to right-hand, left-hand parity of sorts before stopping. I was even doing a little jamming with my limited understanding with as far as I got with basic chords and scales and stuff.

His lovable projects reminded me of a bunch of mine.

And with rock-climbing, I've already started tackling them.
