Prelude to the workday

This is strange: today omitting the "I" seems much more difficult. Perhaps tiredness removes agency from the self, an effort will be made in any case.

The airbnb needs to be visited at 6pm, so this structures the rest of the day. What needs to be done? The Bézier Game has reached a state of stability, so it is not mandatory to give continuity to the code today. Perhaps a work session for Streaky (now re-baptized Flow) is in order. Since the evening is taken up, it might be interesting checking if the pool is a viable option to work during the morning, since there will be less people and less distractions. Let's see.

Work session 1 (1h)

A breezy work session on Flow at the nearest study hall. The mind was latching to tasks with surprising dexterity, but the codebase is reaching the complexity where you need to shuffle code with care. It's been observed that it is best to reorganize the code in the earlier stages, otherwise the plant grows hobbled by unneeded complexity.

Work session 2 (1h)

The guests at the airbnb apartment not only left almost no cleaning work to be done, they replaced the supplies that they used and bought a plant for the apartment! People like this are the salt of this earth.

There are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue;

They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space.

Through the hands of such as these God speaks, and from behind their eyes He smiles upon the earth.

Khalil Gibran, On Giving


Not all that much was worked yesterday, but what was done was productive. We tend to equate satisfaction in work by the effort and the time expended, but these are illusory measures, if I run a dozen kilometers instead of walking them, the result is the same.
