I don’t have any cool graphs yet. I have been working a lot though. Completely different routine than normal for me. Instead of super long sessions with no breaks where I grind it out I’ve actually been taking a ton of breaks. It’s easy to get distracted here.

I’m staying on pace to meet the requirements I set down for myself for the 10th. I may actually be even a little ahead schedule, which is good because I know I’m going to want to crash badly one of these days. I’ve been averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep per 24 hours for the last 6 days. I’ll take any where from 90 minutes to 4 hours of sleep and get working again. My GitHub’s commits by time of day looks completely random.

Besides that my diet this past week has been: Oreos, Funyuns, Goldfish, Cheez-Its, Teddy Grahams-chocolate, Caffeinated Mio, Redbull, Kit Kats, and random nootropics. Also whatever Chase makes ^_^
Are there any slightly healthier foods that meet these requirements?
Don’t need to be refrigerated
Require no preparation or effort to eat
Are meant to be eaten in large quantities
Preferably won’t get my fingers messy since I’ll be at a keyboard

Almost forgot about this. In all the years, for all the blogs I’ve attempted, this is now the one I’ve gotten the furthest with.

Alright, I think I need to get some charts together for all these things I’m trying to track like sleep, work, etc. Might be easier to have something visual.

Yesterday I leveled up in programming. It’s basically one of those events where you just learned something new or understand a concept completely for the first time and now you’re just better. I had a similar experience when cooking something a couple weeks ago where I leveled up in cooking.

So, the goal. The plan is to go to Newport on the 10th. There are a number of things I need to get done before then in order for me to attend this little vacation. I’ve got 6 days left counting today. I’ve already been up all night working, so we’ll see how much longer I last today. I’m pretty sure I can get everything done, and if I don’t the feeling will be so much worse because I’ve given up on going to the lake twice already to work instead. I’ll have missed not only going to the lake those times but being able to go to Newport. It’s been crunch time for awhile, but now I’m really feeling the pressure with a deadline creeping up. The reward though should be enough motivation for me to pump through and get it done.
