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.
