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.

  • Have a bunch of ideas for the side project. Need to balance new things vs sharing it more publicly. I feel like I have one chance to make a good impression and a little bit of design could go a long way to improving that.

  • #anxiety Feeling a little bit anxious at the end of the work day. I think it’s caused by the fact that I’m behind my own estimates of where I should be on my tasks. I also feel like a fraud because I feel like I keep breaking things by not paying attention.
  • If I were to look at the situation more objectively, I got a lot done this week. I was also distracted today by having to interface with an external vendor for something an exec asked about. So all in all, I’m being too hard on myself and I should enjoy my weekend.
