Weekly review: Week ending November 7, 2014

This week was about getting back into the swing of several projects: Emacs, Japanese, Quantified Awesome and one of the personal projects I’m working on. Also, we picked up the LEGO Movie videogame, which is turning out to be lots of fun. =) I’m taking it pretty easy at the moment because there’s lots of stuff on the go.

… Oh. Now that I look at all the things I’ve crossed off, it deosn’t seem like I’ve been taking it easy. Funny how that works. Thank goodness for TODO lists!
