I’ve been making an effort to listen to new music recently since I have all this (Apple) music and end up listening tot the same things. This week has been mostly the One Mix DJ mix shows.

I read a tip about faking inbox zero by archiving all my emails in Gmail, but read about the idea of ‘email bankruptcy’ and simply deleting it all*. All 38000! I started browsing my email when I first opened the account in 2004 and it’s just so different.

*i just couldn’t.

I play with a friend half way around the world using Chess.com but I just don’t like the time delay or not being able to manipulate the pieces.

So many good things on the internet that are well worth my time, but it’s such a struggle to just focus on one thing/them and not mindlessly scroll.

Started the new year with a new plan. While there are numerous plans that would work, I’m happier paying and having someone tell me what I should do. Today was the first session and as ever I failed the first rule… don’t ever say or think, “that looks easy.”

First attempt at some blackout pages. Deliberately started at the front of the book and forced myself to use each page. Which was harder but worth it.

Breakfast. 碗杂面. Noodles with stewed beef and chick peas. Spicy, numbing and causing me to break out in a sweat. Good start to the day.
