Hey! Today was a great day. I’ve continued planning SNAT. I’m working on the UI component and am actively resisting the impulse to make it more complicated than nessary for a possible condition that I may in a few years decide to implement or need. But it’s really simplifying my planning, not just that, having a simple system I’m finding harder to design than a complex one. With a complex one, I give each class a host of unessary and often poorly thought out and often redundant function. Instead of a class that’s just responsible for one thing, I design the class so that it morphs into being responsible into more than one thing along with error checking, unnecessarily powerful methods, overally defensive programming etc.
Today was the first day after break week and I had a really productive day. I didn’t expect to conk out at 2 hours and 15 minutes but I shouldn’t be surprised since that’s 3 * 45 minutes. I’ll work back up to 1 hour at each subject but right now I’m not overall concerned with my study time. I’m doing well and having a bit less time means I have to be even more productive than I usually am! I was mentally exhausted and couldn’t really focus,after the two hour and fifteen minute mark. So I put my stuff away and did low key thinkgs on my laptop before on a whim heading to the library housed at Machray hall at UofM. I got out two books on AI that I’ll be reading slowly over the coming days.
Today on the bus coming home an interesting event happened! About 5 kids my age got on and proceeded to hand out these tiny slips of paper that I believe was LSD micro dose or something similar. At first I was thinking that’s so bad, why would you do drugs? But I realized that I wasn’t in a position to judge, having achieved a similar effect with pornography. However the biggest lessons that I learned from pornography, is that your pain and problems don’t magically go away or solve themselves, they stagnate and wait for you. Once your ready to face them day in and day out for a long duration, do they become less painful and less destabilizing.
