Weekly review: Week ending February 20, 2015

Wow, that was actually a pretty full week: an extended family dinner that required dressing up, technical issues with my work laptop and with my cellphone, cooking, dusting off my sewing things, meeting people, contributing to code… This week, I have a couple of social and family things planned. I’m looking forward to digging into sewing a little more, too, so that I can practise while I remember. =)

Definitely slowed down when I changed my target from five cards a day to one card.

Weekly review: Week ending February 13, 2015

This week was about trying to get the hang of shopping. I find shopping to be a frustrating process, but I think that’s something I can tweak about myself. We were scrambling to get everything in order for a formal-ish dinner at a banquet hall with extended family. My office attire (slacks, a blazer, and a dress shirt) worked fine, but the exercise prompted me to think about my wardrobe and choosing clothes more deliberately.

My work laptop crashed, so that took a bite out of my productivity. I’ll check next week to see if they’ve gotten it sorted out. I used a loaner laptop to get a few more things done, but it would be good to set everything up properly again.

This coming week: hosting an Emacs Hangout, baking for the Repair Cafe to be held at Hacklab, attending a Sketchnote Hangout, and going to a networking event. Lots of talking to people, so I’ll try to have lots of quiet time as well.

Weekly review: Week ending February 6, 2015

This week, I experimented with treating consulting as a dessert to encourage me to make decent progress on my personal projects. Mixed results. I learned a lot about continuous integration and code coverage reporting in Emacs (yay!), created my own Helm sources, and improved my index card workflow, but the setup made it easy to give in to the temptation of working on other people’s stuff instead of sitting with my own resistance. Still, I did a good job with those consulting hours, building a couple of interesting prototypes and reports.

My digital workflow for drawing and filing index cards is getting better and better, though. =) I used the Emacs widget library for the first time, and I can’t wait to build more of these little interfaces to make my life easier. Whee!

Didn’t cook last weekend because the fridge had lots of leftovers, so pickings were a little slim this week (what with the snowstorm, too). Looking forward to getting back to a regular routine of cooking this week, maybe even doing bulgogi with a bunch of side dishes. =)

Weekly review: Week ending January 30, 2015

This week was the week of focusing on vegetables. I made Japanese curry with a pickled salad on the side (daikon, cucumber, carrot), shepherd’s pie, and pad thai. It was great to have so many vegetable-focused dishes in the fridge. Looking forward to exploring more recipes and building up this habit!

Weekly review: Week ending January 23, 2015

I posted nine blog posts this week, relaxing that once-a-day bottleneck that I’ve been using for the past few years. Mainly, it’s because I want to talk about Emacs more than once a week while still keeping lots of variety so that I can talk about non-tech topics too. Daily readers: Is the volume unmanageable? How can I make this better for you?

On my consulting gig, I leveled up in terms of using Tableau. I think I’ve gotten the hang of dashboard actions now, and I’m more comfortable using calculated fields for attributes and aggregates. Whee!

This has been a good week for planning ahead and learning from others. The Quantified Self Toronto meetup on Monday got me thinking about an Epic Quest of Awesome, and that spun off a long, thoughtful conversation about questions. I’m looking forward to fleshing that out a bit more over the next few weeks.

Oh, and I finally applied for my passport, picked up my Cultural Access Pass, and took care of a number of other errands. Have day pass, will Get Stuff Done.

The Emacs microhabit I’m going to focus on this week is selecting multiple things in Helm, since that’s one of its key features. =)

Weekly review: Week ending January 16, 2015

This was a good week for writing code: little utilities to help me manage my sketches and Evernote entries, some code for my consulting client, and so forth.

The Emacs microhabit I focused on was switching windows. I found that C-u C-u with ace-window (which I’ve bound to C-x o) is handy for deleting windows, and binding a windmove-type keymap to the yy keychord is useful for switching windows with my cursor keys.

Next week, I’ve got an Emacs Chat with Steve Purcell. Looking forward to it!
