Hey! Today wasn’t the best of days, I had a buzzing in the back of my head, that along with the fact that I was finding it extremely difficulty to do a basic derivative means that something was wrong. It took the entire day of me ignoring it before it finally became to much and I needed to figure out what was inhibiting me from being productive.
I’ve traced it to three main things:
Firstly lack of clear outline and plan for the upcoming week.
All of the above things I can solve and will be solving all three tonight before I go to sleep so that I don’t loose any more days to lack of productivity.
Today I had a UMSATS meeting, it’s a meeting where we are planning and working towards launching a cubesat. This isn’t some sort of fluff but legitimate project that has been in the works for around four years. I’ve only joined this year and still need to learn C along with catching up on the terminology and information.
I’m working on SNAT and managed to get a feature done in an hour and thirty minutes. The feature was a simple feature and mimics what is done in Simple Tasks which is rearraging the tasks. I’ve also begun rethinking my sorting algorithms and am seriously considering a majour code overhaul on that. After this build and the next two builds I believe I’ll be finished Build 3 officially and at that time will split the project into two subprojects. The first subproject is simplifying all my code and the second is writing tests. I expect simplifying the code to take the longest with migrating tests taking less than twenty four hours to do. However, once I do this, my code will be MUCH better shape and maintainable.
Today my friend Yan messaged me a ebook that he had stolen that he thought that I would like. I told him that I wouldn’t accept a stolen book and that got me thinking of the other things that I had that I had implicitly stolen by accepting them from other people. I went thru my files and deleted anything that I didn’t recall purchasing or had a weird name that usually indicated a RIP or torrent. I’m proud to say that this negative event in which Yan was offering me stolen material got me to get rid of all the stolen material that I had implicitly or explicitly. Telling him that he shouldn’t be sending me stolen material while housing stolen material on my laptop is just wrong. So I did that and even though a lot of it I didn’t steal, knowing that I don’t have ANY stolen items implicit or not is a really really really great feeling.
