74 days until Coachella, 125 days until the Rock ‘N Roll Marathon
In my most previous post, I detailed how I felt it was unsustainable to try and get 8 hours of programming exercises and learning done. So this week I’m dialing it back and going for 6 hours a day at least 5 days this week. Based on how I’ve felt, it’s going to be like this:
Do programming related activities 6 hours per day, must be done by 4:00pm or I’m short for the day
Parkinson’s Law and Abraham Lincoln are the reason for the 4pm deadline. If you don’t put cap on your work, it ends up bleeding into other parts of your life and that sucks.
In the end, I’m doing a minimum of 30 hours for the week and 35+ if I can gather the steam to hunker down on Super Bowl Sunday. I’m currently on the Django Polls tutorial lesson 3. My goal is to finish up with my first go-around of Getting Started With Django by the end of next week.
Thursday Night is chill out night, Friday is errands day
I work in the service industry closing on weekends so I don’t get to go out when people traditionally go out. That said, I value a hard earned night with friends and alcohol to boot. I need a designated errand day for the week (paying bills, getting groceries, doing laundry, etc.,.) and since I’m still going full gun on the weekends, that day is Friday.
When I’m not working, I’m either reading a book or writing
I told myself when I was at my startup company that I’d start writing again when we got funded and I had some stability. That never happened. That said, my passion in life is words. I’ve got a lot of books to read and shitty stories to write.
Resume marathon training
I’ll be upping my mileage up and making my way toward a weekly long-run of 10-20 miles in preparation for June 1.
I’ll report back next week. In the meantime, follow me on Tumblr.
