I’ve been working more at my job. I’m considering accepting a full-time position there which would give me more responsibility and higher pay and allow me to learn and do some things that I think will be fun and satisfying. The downside to it is that it would be a full-time commitment.
I’m doing spaced repetition learning with the Anki app for a bunch of numbers that I want to memorize for work.
I finished the mindfulness meditation intro course in the Waking Up app. I’m trying out the meditations in the UCLA Mindful app. It seems like mindfulness meditation is helping me, but it’s hard to say how. Maybe I’m noticing my thoughts and body sensations more, and maybe I’m being nicer to myself and less self-conscious, and maybe I’m more willing to see reality.
I’m doing the six-week plan in the book Say Good Night to Insomnia. My sleep isn’t terrible, but it’s not great either. I’m trying to improve it.
In my karate practice, I made up a schedule spreadsheet to make sure I continue to practice things I’ve worked on, with diminishing frequency. I continue to practice for 15-30 minutes per day on my own, and I’ve gone back to in-person classes too. I’m starting to use the Anki app for some karate stuff too, like memorizing language or facts or a short series of moves.
I stopped doing my coding study. I liked it, but other things are more important to me now.
I’ve made some big changes in focus. I don’t know how to judge if that was a mistake.
Friendly comments or questions welcome about how I’m spending my time or about how to decide what to spend time on, or about whether I’m overreaching, or about particular things I’m studying. I think friendly meta would be okay with me, but I’m not sure.
