- have quit social media(deleted accounts : facebook and instagram) - had already been off the platforms for a couple of months so this isn't cold-turkey - this did put a smile on my face : unexpected energy surge immediately after the deletion - ofcourse, other more active forms of leisure are being incorporated - also quit television and all other forms of visual entertainment (2 days in now) - this is cold turkey - plan to stick to this for a long time but hard rules are good to avoid loopholes and gray areas - no visual entertainment for 30 days : that's pretty simple - followed by one movie every weekend post that first phase of weaning off - only if I feel like it - life does seem a bit more boring, which is expected and good - Sleeping patterns are healthier and lucidity levels are rising fairly rapidly - more stable dreams and generally more aware of the REM phase without any surplus significant efforts. - as expected, a lot of time has been freed up - the key, now, is to mindfully slot in productive activities

- bad week(month?(year?)) sleep wise : need to get that back in check - starting a log stream for any skills I want to pick up - streams are the way to go for intermittent updates and staying on track - began with the speed reading log today under the meta category - not going to post the links for such streams on the major or minor stream - so consider yourself lucky if you chance upon them

- blogged on recent semester project : wdgaf
- have been drilling speed-reading lately - seeing improvements : amped up to read more papers and books - observational notes do feel good : the kind of general insight I've seemingly developed feels awesome - drew my left hand with my right hand, just out of curiosity probably the first time after kinder-garden - they definitely had something right cooking with the kind of stuff they made us do - shifted to using the mouse with my left hand - full time - slow but definitely improving incrementally: frees up my right for some doodling
