Feelings

I maintain a diary of my feelings using Daylio which I publish to this site daily. I wrote a bit about it on my blog, if you are interested in how and why.

๐Ÿ˜€

I felt good

  • ๐Ÿš
  • ๐Ÿฅฉ
  • ๐Ÿ“บ
  • Had a good project planning meeting that I got tasks out of.
  • Got my demo working for real and will show it off tomorrow!
๐Ÿ˜€

I felt good

  • ๐Ÿœ
  • ๐ŸŒฟ
  • ๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™‚๏ธ
  • Made risotto. Why donโ€™t I make risotto every week?
  • Just chilled and watched football
๐Ÿฅณ

I felt rad

  • ๐Ÿฅฉ

  • ๐Ÿœ
  • ๐ŸŒž
  • Rachel went upstate for the night so I had the place to myself. Just chilled and watched The Last of Us
๐Ÿ˜€

I felt good

  • ๐Ÿš
  • ๐Ÿฅฉ
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป
  • Vim club conference call went okay
  • Getting into the zone. Documentation zone!
  • The new Lil Yachty album is really good, wasnโ€™t expecting psychedelic rock album, but damned if he didnโ€™t pull it off
๐Ÿ˜€

I felt good

  • ๐Ÿš
  • ๐ŸŒฟ
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป
  • Rachel was stressed out because of a presentation and I was locked in the office for most of the day. I didnโ€™t eat lunch โ˜น๏ธ We had a little bit of passive aggressiveness in the evening
  • I also heard most of Rachelโ€™s therapy appointment today. I tried not too but sheโ€™s so loud. I need to think further about how we will do finances and how different ways to make her and her work feel worth it.
  • Work went okay, no one was passive aggressive there, at least. Making some headways on where I think we should go.
๐Ÿ˜€

  • Lots of good meetings at work. Gonna grind and shine no matter the weather ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  • Rachel made a delicious butter bean and kale dish. Told her she should make it again, canโ€™t ever be accused of not being supportive.
  • We decided that Laverne is an atheist and that Fonzie is Jewish. Canโ€™t argue with the boss on this.

  • Work went surprisingly well, except for the documentation meeting where I blathered on about things that donโ€™t matter. People seem excited for what the documentation project could produce.
  • Album mode.party keeps getting better and better. Iโ€™m starting to game plan growth features, like modals and OpenGraph images, that will hopefully yield clicks. Might need to hire someone to do a logo or something.

  • Floated through the day at work. Fun to work in a different codebase, but I need to reframe my overall view of whatโ€™s coming.

  • Finished the new season of the White Lotus. It inspired me to input chatgpt โ€œJenifer Coolidge reads me Goodnight Moon but Christopher Guest level ditzyโ€ for no reason at all.
  • My next project might have some traction at work. We. Shall. See. As long as my next task has traction, Iโ€™ll be happy.
  • Cut off my project time at dinner, still stayed up late. I just need some coding to make whole. What hole is it filling? Man, even I donโ€™t know. Also, seems like Iโ€™m just gonna stay late. What am I anxious about? Time. It just keeps going and it effects everyone & everything.

  • Work went better. Got really stressed out in morning because of a bug, but got to work with someone through it and then felt good once we diagnosed the root issue and came up with a fix. I also got to vent about some stuff and start putting meetings in motion to get help.
  • Made a lil baked spinach artichoke pasta. I couldnโ€™t get it to the levels that the dip at the Queens Room is, but it was still pretty good.

  • Work went okay, my manager gave me positive feedback. Letโ€™s see whatโ€™s next and if things can get off my plate.
  • Made tteokbokki with the gochujang that Hochan gave us. Oh my god, it was so good, it was a little sweeter and smokier than the store bought stuff and the spice was more balanced. Iโ€™m also over the moon every time I eat rice cakes.
  • Therapy was somewhat useful. We talked about how to navigate family getting older and how to navigate situations where Iโ€™m frustrated with someoneโ€™s behavior that I cannot control. We ended the session with my therapist telling me about how my old psychiatrist closed the office that she worked in, got a new office just for him and told everyone in his practice that they were all remote now, good luck AFTER he did all these things. Itโ€™s heartwarming to know that we are all going through choppy waters so we laughed about that.

  • Saw The Menu with Kris and Blaire at the Alamo. Movie was pretty good but everyone got frustrated when our food didnโ€™t show up which was compounded by the food on the screen. We got burgers afterwards which made things a little better. Always nice to see them!

  • Started converting my Neovim setup to Lua after peer pressure from my works #vim channel. It was a lot of work, but Iโ€™m getting pretty happy with the results. Being able to write functions normally is very freeing. I just need to wrap up all the LSP setup and I can call it done. OH AND I CAN FINALLY SEARCH CODE SUPER EASILY!
  • Rachel and mineโ€™s sleep schedules are all messed up. We think it might be the time change + stress. Gotta get this fixed ASAP as it gonna destroy us.

  • Work went very slowly
  • I was basically catatonic with anxiety after work. Rachel and I were able to talk about it and it was somewhat helpful and it lifted my spirits. Basically, the wedding planning is applying pressure that we need to manage better AND work is really dragging me down.
  • Talked to my sister and Jami about our visit to Ohio. We have general day by day plans, which is really goodโ€ฆ
  • โ€ฆbut then I talked to my parents about our visit and they were annoyed that I had plans at all AND they are flying in at the worst possible times and will basically avoid Rachelโ€™s parents until the party AND they want to stay in Akron instead of Cleveland for reasons beyond me. The whole thing pisses me off, frankly, as we communicated what days we were traveling and the intention of this trip months ago, but they seemed to have tuned that out and decided to do their own thing. Furthermore, because I spoke to them last, we made plans with Rachelโ€™s family that involved them that we had to adjust because they hadnโ€™t communicated travel dates.
  • This is yet another in a long line of instances where my dad has decided to be selfish and do whatever the fuck he wants.
  • These discussions added more anxiety and I couldnโ€™t sleep.

  • Hitting a wall on an Album Mode.party project. I want to be able to sync my library across devices, but since I donโ€™t have a centralized server, I have to do it P2P, which is really hard, as it turns out. I might just feature flag it for now and come back to this at a later date?
