Paper penguin

My mom told me a totally warm-and-fuzzy story about paper penguins.
Awwww! She loves me very, very, very much. =D

Done with FIS paper

I’m right smack against the upper page limit, too. Just _barely_
managed to cram it into 12 pages. I know I can trim it down further,
but knowing me, I might get carried away and try to stuff another rant
or two in there. =) I’ll re-edit it before posting it on the Web, but
it’s good to get that out of my system…

Hacking my productivity

Still plugging away. Wow, I’ve been working on this for quite a while,
and I don’t feel too fatigued yet. Here’s what I tried:

  • Munch on things regularly to keep a good sugar level. I brought
    plenty of apples and bananas, and I’ve been raiding the bread and
    crackers.
  • Drink plenty of water. This also forces me to get a bit of
    exercise. I find I get very thirsty when I think… <laugh>
  • Set my computer to force a 5- to 10-minute break every hour.
    Microbreaks (15 seconds every ten minutes) are also useful. I don’t
    find myself losing track of ideas, and I can stay on track better
    when I know regular breaks are coming up.
