I’ve been taking notes daily, capturing things when they happen or when I remember them. I’m not sure if the daily format is the best versus some key highlights across the week. Will figure this out each week until I find the format I’m happy with.
Week of 2 November to 8 November.
Walked to work.
Had an iced coffee at Origin. It took a while enjoy.
Visited the dentist.
Scaling decisions – more servers or isolated deployments.
Went to the dentist. Cavity free since 93. Either braces or implants. For now maintain.
Salad (egg and salami) and biltong for lunch.
Played touch rugby at Green Point Park with Clint and Mike. I’m not as fit as I thought, it was mad fun though. Will attempt to do this every Monday going forward.
Caught a jog home.
Hudson’s for Mark’s birthday. Had a health nut burger (without the bun).
Had eggs, bacon, chicken, and avo for lunch with Wayde.
Had a flat white from Origin, it’s been a few weeks. Also had a sencha green tea from Origin. I much prefer Sencha to any other green tea.
Walked home from the office.
Just a few meetings and conference calls.
Had salad for dinner.
Cranked out code until just after 1AM.
Walked to work.
Had a Gun Show smoothie from ColdPress. Also tried their Apple, Mint, and Ginger juice, it has a kick but would have it again.
Had chicken for lunch.
Just a note that life is strange and funny – things can always come full circle.
Took a nap before doing some work in the evening.
Uber to work. Walked home.
Office air con, everyone has an opinion on what the temperature should be.
Grilled hake for lunch.
Had KFC. Don’t want to talk about it.
Seriously digging into the bowels of AWS to figure out how our stack should be structured.
Realised I hadn’t run in the last few days, result of focusing on other things. Can’t let that happen again.
Lunch at Loading Bay – had a chicken burger without the bun (had half the bun).
Lots more time spent on AWS.
Had grilled chicken and veg at Mykonos for dinner.
Breakfast at Limnos, scrambled eggs and salmon. It’s not fancy, but always good.
Afternoon hacking away at more infrastructure ideas – benchmarking and profiling code.
Romanda’s end year fashion show at Fedisa.
Got AfrikaBurn tickets for 2016 – going with Brad and Charl.
Lunch at Qualingos. Had beef medallions, wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. Had the best cappuccino I’ve ever had, so I guess that was a win.
Took a walk through Green Point Park.
- Definitely want to decide on some metrics to measure weekly in my life. This would span across various facets, not just health.
- Thinking is probably one of the most underrated and overlooked work function to perform (never mind life skill). I want to spend more time thinking to make more effective decisions.
- Will spend the next week focusing on being active on schedule.
