This Week

IMG_6591

Life Pretty low key this week, feeling really wrung out. Friend's birthday, and tried to go to the theatre with another friend but discovered that I had booked the tickets for the following day, so just went for a wonder and some sushi instead. Submitted a talk to a conference, so we'll see how that goes. Work Exhausting. Feels ...

Adorable Animal Background Beautiful Brown

I've been in a bit of an emotional funk for the last week or so, and I really wanted to snap out of it this weekend. I made myself go to the gym, and that didn't work (actually I felt worse). I wrote something, but concluded it was rubbish. I went on an adventure with a ...

This Week

IMG_6586

Life I don't even know what I did this week, been so stressed lately and it's been catching up with me. Not sleeping well, etc. I think I'm getting less stressed, and that things are better, but it's been going long enough now that I just feel worn down by it. Missed mid-week kettlebell workout because ...

This Week

IMG_6581

Life Hung out with friends, went to a startups meetup (interesting). Spent an afternoon teaching kids Python with Stemettes. Quality time in the gym - keeping things low key this week. By Sunday though I was totally zonked! Speakers are up for iOSDevUK. Work Demanding. Exhausting. But looked back at what I've achieved this quarter and even if there ...

Book: 4 Hour Body

4 Hour body

I have mixed feelings about Tim Ferriss. I read 4 Hour Work Week, and now 4 Hour Body (both Amazon), and it’s like, yes, good point, but it’s hard for me to imagine having that much control over my time. Penelope Trunk wrote something interesting, about how he works insanely hard but defines it all ...

Making Someplace New, Home

tiny clay houses

I’ve had this conversation multiple times lately, so it’s time to document it. I feel like a hippocrite offering these observations, since I don’t feel at all at home in London yet, but at least I’m mindfully unhappy about it. Even somewhat 1-dimensional workaholics have multiple aspects to their lives (they normally have somewhere to sleep, ...

This Week

Life Last year was rough, and even though things are a lot better now, I feel like I'm still experiencing... emotional aftershocks. I felt that this week. I'm not in The Dark Place anymore, but sometimes I'm reminded of it, and I see it again, and it scares me. But I went to the gym (I finally ...

Book: A Short Guide To A Happy Life

A Short Guide To a Happy Life

I like Anna Quindlen’s work, it’s beautiful and thoughtful, poetic without being overly flowery. A Short Guide To a Happy Life is from a commencement speech she never gave because it was cancelled by protesters, beautifully illustrated with pictures. It’s short, because really it contains a very simple message: be more than your job, have more in your ...

The Procrastination Project

Reverse Whack-A-Mole

There is something I'm working on that I'm really excited about, that if we have hung out in person I may well have talked about, but it has been going nowhere. So "I'm working on X" has really only been true if "work" is defined as "not getting around to and feeling really guilty about". This was ...
