Today we'll go see if there's any cherry blossoms left. We were gone during the proper time to go see them. We'll see if there's anything to see and we'll make sure next year to catch them properly.

I figure I could post some of my regular recipes here on my diary.

Sun Apr 15 23:03:04 UTC 2018

Not sure if I napped while laying down today. Perhaps that venti decaf 4 hours ago had too much caffeine in it. In either case, it still feels very good to lay down for a half-hour in the middle of my day.

Wow, an hour of climbing is really exhausting.

Sun Apr 15 02:44:39 UTC 2018

I think specific calorie goals don't need to be a thing whilst I build up climbing muscles. As long as the food itself is properly nutrious (which I think it is). I will still count because useful.

Actually, no. I like calorie goals, I'm just not too upset that I went way over today after a solid rock climbing morning.

Actually woke up before 0700 today! 0630. That's pretty close to the goal of 0600.

Still wasting a bit of my morning at work. I'm doing some morning reading, which is good, I guess. I'd like to devote times where I have less energy to reading. Like maybe after lunch before my nap?

Anyways, my reading this morning was finishing Mad Fientist - Valuable Lessons from My First Year of Freedom.

A link in there was to one of the Mad Fientist's podcasts about starting a business, which I'll try listening to while I work (might not be a good strat).

Lots of talking at work today. Switching to music, need to focus.

Listening to Chemical Reaction - Sonic 2 Remix.

Thu Apr 12 20:34:18 UTC 2018

Read The Man Who Knew Too Little.

Updated my Spark File. Not using it correctly. It's becoming a list of entertainment plans, kinda. With some non-entertainment things. Maybe better to put some of that stuff into an actions system. But I don't like my current action system (email). Because it's ordered chronologically.

Now it's time to get back to work.

Fri Apr 13 02:34:37 UTC 2018

Got distracted chatting at work and then talking with my wife when I got home. Reassessing the timeblock.

I suddenly really want sugar. But I know any amount I eat will not satiate me. It will not make me happy. I will not eat it.

I may go to the grocery store and buy a bunch of fruit.

Fri Apr 13 14:35:04 UTC 2018

I did not go buy a bunch of fruit. I should do that today, though. Gots a weekend ahead of me, afterall. Anyways, time to make tomorrow's post (today from my current perspective).

Unsweetened, caffeine-free tea is delicious, Stephan. But you already knew that.

I'm waiting on a response before I do something.

Reading: "The Door Problem" of Game Design

Reading 2018 stack overflow Developer Survery Results.

Thu Apr 12 04:18:07 UTC 2018

You may notice today, Stephan, that there is no TV: YouTube in my timeblock. I will not be watching YouTube anymore. Well, not by myself. There's some stuff I walk with the wife that I will continue doing. I'll properly label that with "TV: Overwatch" or "TV: Game Grumps". I'll go to YouTube for a specific purpose and not to browse.

I also will not be getting on Twitter again. The people I followed, as much as I liked them meeting in person, are not growing to be deeper friends via my interactions with Twitter.

I don't shout out to the world, Stephan. And as much as I developed a liking to listening to those that do, places like Twitter and Facebook and, well, social media are not right fits for me.

I DM people. I group chat, maybe, but less frequently than DM.

And this place. This place is for me. I open others to stop by if they so desire, and I may focus on being better at letting others digest my thinking, but this place is for me. This place is an ongoing conversation with myself.

And that's fine. That's good.

Right now, I want to focus on me. And then as I address the things that need addressing, I can focus on what I want to do, and how inevitably that means sharing what I want to do with others.

But that's not right now.

It doesn't need to be.

Just had a thought re: calorie goal. Instead of counting up my calories, I should count them down. A number going down feels worse than a number going up, Stephan. That's just science.

Wait, is it science? Makes it less a joke if it is science.

Quick google search result yields nothing.

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

I can start doing work-work now.

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.

Mon Apr 09 21:09:05 UTC 2018

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.

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.

Sat Apr 07 16:15:34 UTC 2018

Changing the plan for my sick waifu.

Sat Apr 07 17:03:04 UTC 2018

Back. Now breakfast and cleaning the kitchen a bit.

Taxes done except for some stuff I need to ask my waifu.

Ate a banana.

Sat Apr 07 21:36:09 UTC 2018

Taxes filed.

Ate cereal. Soup and crackers. More crackers. More crackers. Fries

Sat Apr 07 21:54:10 UTC 2018

Popsicles.

Sun Apr 08 00:18:17 UTC 2018

Cereal.

Sun Apr 08 00:18:31 UTC 2018

Watching a lot of YouTube videos. Too many YouTube videos. Adding YouTube and Twitter back to my premium sites.

This reminds me that I want to remake my site-blocker extension.

Sun Apr 08 03:28:25 UTC 2018

Watched a bunch of YouTube with my sick waifu.

Ate pasta, chips.
