It is starting to feel like Fall here in New England. I have officially begun to have to wait for my car to heat up in the morning before going to the gym. That is typically a good indicator of when the warm weather has begun to pass.
Last week I didn't achieve everything I wanted to, but it was a very productive week. The reason behind the lack of progress was some unexpected speed bumps when setting up the PLFA & Compiler environments. Other than that though, it felt like a typical week. I was able to continue progress on the FP Course, completed the first chapter of PLFA (Agda is strange), worked on my elixir app, started a systems programming exercise, and finally scoped out the compiler study group course of action. The new systems programming exercise is a collection of exercises. I am going to start with the hash map implementation since this is the one that seems most challenging to me.
For this upcoming week, I am taking a different approach to organizing my day & tasks and I have a few goals I want to achieve. The new way of organizing my day is with a simple notebook & pen rather than calcurse. I don't have a reason for doing this other than I have always used some notebook as a productivity tool during most of my academic career. I have one for daily tasks, one for notes, and one for tracking my workout sessions.
The goals I have for this upcoming week are the following:
Health & Fitness goals
- Workout everyday
- Fast at least 16 hours a day
- Limit my social media screen time to one hour a day
- Work consistently from 9 AM-5 PM each day.
- Read one blog post per day
- Finish my elixir app
- Make progress on each study group's material
- Declutter my work area (even though it's already pretty minimal)
- Set up my raspberry pi as a backup server
Until next time,
