I do enjoy blogging in terms of streams, while keeping it discrete enough for convenient rereads.

- will be initializing a daily stream that I initialize every
morning and end at the end of every day.
- timestamps somehow increase my awareness of time and delegate
the stress of time-management to the computer.
- feels like a very simple productivity hack.
- I borderline feel like Mark Watney from "Martian".
- story-telling is an interesting art I'd like to improve in on
the sidelines and logging has been an accelerator for the same
in the past.
- there is not much value in one entry, but, accumulate them over a
large span of time and you have something interesting.
- taking a break from intense physical workouts for a week and
solidifying some core work rituals (for programming, studying,
reading and writing) for the next year or so.
- will still be walking with podcasts so my body will get some
much needed rest.
- I do need to decouple my workouts from the productivity aspect
of my work; they definitely elevate my efficiency but sometimes,
I just enjoy going all in with work and finishing off major
projects.
- Finishing of the books "Practical Common Lisp" and "Fluent
Python" in the following week.
- I keep my studies independent from my work and going forward, will be
getting into "Let Over Lambda" and "Hacking: The art of exploitation".
- My casual reading pursuits include finishing off Taleb's "Incerto" series
in the coming weeks.
- will be reviving my speed reading skills
- quite a controversial topic in the reading community
it is down to the core.
- it definitely gets a bad rep due to it being somewhat of a
misnomer.
- I hate misnomers: I used to redefine words on my old blog
but this time, I'm thinking of sticking to the bounds of
the language I'm using and not creating novel words.
- will be efficient in the long term.
- Reading and writing are activities that do not provide you a
benefit in the short term but definitely pay off in the generic
wisdom and awareness you gain over the longer term.
- This is something the society doesn't acknowledge yet.
- We technically can capture knowledge with success within technical textbooks but
we haven't really dialed down on what can really encapsulates
wisdom.
- 0x2000 is coming soon and will mark a new phase of my life : I'm
done with 8192 days and I'll be entering 0x3000 in my early
thirties.
- Writing with timestamps is like creating a time capsule.
- It allows you to move on from the past without holding on to
it.
- You've neatly indexed your memories and incentives (which can
easily be manipulated by circumstances in the future).
- does delegate away the stress in defining who you are.
- That sounds good to me.
- still need to restructure the site a little...
- need to backup all my past work and documents in a smarter way
- already initialized system logs for maintaing progress as a descriptive
function of time: for backtracks and identifying where things
went wrong in the long run.
- have reinitialized my rough observation journals and am building
that curiosity again.
- It does get you in trouble sometimes, but, well, life's boring
anyway.
- A little trouble sounds good to me.
