Thinking

Experimented with caffeine after nap again yesterday. Will do so this whole week, I think. Last night is noisy, as I was cooking and on my feet until like 2030 or so. I got into bed around 2100, and my brain was swimming. Needed to put on some Capital in the 21st Century to wind down (have the audiobook of it).

That worked very well, though. Feel like I slept pretty well....

Anyways, we'll see how I feel after a week of doing this.

I need to walk to therapy now.

Thinking

Yesterday, I once-again experimented with drinking caffeine after my nap. This time, not nearly as much caffeine. Did you know there's roughly 13.5 mg caffeine per gram of coffee beans, Stephan? The coffee I had after my nap on Saturday was made from 40 grams of beans. That was a lot of caffeine (about 500 mg of caffeine!). The coffee I had after nap yesterday was probably closer to 200 mg of caffeine. Much more reasonable. Fell asleep early last night at around 2030.

Post-nap caffeine may now become a habit.

Speaking of new habits. You may notice some "side-project" pomodoros planned for today. My friend's progress in learning programming makes me want to step up my game! I'm going to be doing a forced-limit setup. Projects will usually be scoped to a week before being abandoned. I think no longer than a month, as well. What can come along is any updates I keep in the base webapp skeleton.

Project Thinking

So, what I want to do in this next hour is:

  • setup local minimal react babel app
  • setup build so don't have to run webpack-dev-server on actual server

Local setup done.

Build command made.

Here's where the template lives

Okay... now I really should set up dev env so I'm using VSCode.

Ended up discussing ideas with friend. VSCode tonight, maybe.

Experimented with drinking caffeine after my nap yesterday and was not tired until an hour later than my bedtime. Almost certainly I'm going to crash later today, or worse, feel the effects of sleep deprivation during work tomorrow.

I'm consistently waking up between 0430 and 0500. For accuracy purposes, I'll call that time "Waking up".

In about 5 minutes I'll be going to the climb gym. I want to prep my work diary in that time, so not too much thinking here today.

Thinking

I have upped my daily new anki cards to 30. It's a lot but I have lots of time throughout the day to pick at the cards throughout the day. At this rate, I'll be done with the core 2000 by the end of the year. Well, "done" in that I'll have processed all the new cards. Not "done" in the sense that a lot of them won't really be safely stored in my head yet.

But anyways, this means that during Christmas holiday, if I haven't already, I really need to start working towards gathering media that I can make into flashcards.

I have decided against the 10k core deck. 2k core will get me a chunk of the way, from there I should start absorbing media and adding new cards as I come across new words. Well, I should start absorbing media ASAP, but by the end of the 2k core I should be absorbing media.

I really need to fix my better computer.... This budget computer is failing under very basic strain. It's not a problem with my current editor of choice, but IDEs are infamous for using up a lot of resources, and for a variety of reasons I'm considering moving over to VSCode (like I tried to do years ago).

The Missing Two Days

I slept poorly Friday night and so had a very exhausted Saturday. It was still the wife's day. We went out to eat at a vegan place called Broadfork Cafe. Pretty good, but a little expensive. Next time, I'll split something with the wife.

Yesterday I decided to have a pure rest day. Finished season 4 of Shera and watched a lot of YouTube. By the end of the day I was hating it. But my back is basically back to normal today. I think maybe it's still a bit stiff. In any case, I'm trying to make today my normal Sunday, what with it being a holiday.

I'm 10% of the way thru the 2000 Core. Which I suppose means I'll have gone through all of it in 18 more weeks or so. I have found that there are 6k core and even 10k Core decks.

I may want to switch to that? At 20 a day, though, that'll be over a year before I'm done. Which is fine, actually. I don't need to finish this before I start making decks for individual media I want to consume (aka prototyping my app idea).
