Notes

Toast IT and TLUG meeting. Maybe wear something geeky? Google shirt, jeans? Underdressed for Toastmasters speech on mentoring, perhaps, but can approach it from mentee perspective.

1. Hacking my productivity: 01:29

Categories: None -- Permalink
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.

Random Japanese sentence: 雨が土砂降りに振りはじめた。 It began to rain cats and dogs.

2. Done with FIS paper: 01:56

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...

On Technorati:

Random Japanese sentence: どのねこも、どのねこもひとくちずつ草を食べました。すると野原中の草はすっかりなくなってしまいました。 Each cat ate a mouthful of grass and not a blade was left!

3. Paper penguin: 02:01

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