A Day of Climbing, Coffee, and Contemplation

Mar 10, 2024 - 6:22pmSummary: Today started off wonderfully, albeit a bit late due to daylight savings time. I was particularly excited about implementing Jordan's UI design into the project, going through a significant update to the entire user interface. The morning coffee, a special blend from Necessity in Encinitas that I tried for the first time, was exceptional with its distinct passion fruit notes. Following this delightful start, I went climbing with my friends Patrick and Kyle at Mission Gorge. We tackled several routes including "Empathy" on the main wall and "Skyline" among others, experiencing both challenges and successes throughout the day. It was a blend of leading and top roping various climbs, a fulfilling way to spend time with close ones. Post-climbing, I returned home to some household chores, including laundry, with plans to cook dinner and possibly program for a bit. However, relaxation seems more tempting as the evening progresses. It's 6:30 PM now, and the night might wind down with me enjoying a show or simply unwinding in anticipation of tomorrow. Although no activities are planned for the next day, considering the surf conditions, it might just turn into a surfing day if conditions at Swami's are favorable. A potential plan to surf with Chandler is also on the horizon, depending on how the morning tide looks.

Transcript: Yeah, really wonderful morning. I got to implement Jordan's UI. And I mean, other than the devs mode, but I basically updated the entire UI, which I'm super stoked about. I had coffee. It was a late start to the day because of daylight savings time. And the coffee was incredible this morning. I got it from Necessity in Encinitas the other day. And yeah, wow, the passion fruit and everything comes through it. I'm really excited to make another cup. And yeah, holy shit. Enjoy the rest of it. And then I went climbing with Patrick and Kyle. And we started off, we met Patrick at like kind of lunch rock area at Mission Gorge. And we climbed first, I believe, skyline. Well, we climbed skyline, skyline a red. What else did we climb? We climbed empathy at main wall. Empathy I led, though the first two quick draws were in. And I kind of did cheater stuff off to the right, I think, plus a hand jam that probably wasn't on. Still was able to send it given those concessions. It was a 510B. And then we had skyline. And let's see, skyline pinnacle, which I believe I did do. Maybe not all the way to the top. I'm not 100% sure. There's mission control. Let me see. Okay, I did skyline face five seven plus true skyline, a red five eight, and orange walk 10 C skyline face. I led and then true skyline a red. We top roped and same thing. Orange walk. We also top roped, but it was a nice day with with the homies, Kyle and Patrick. And yeah, I don't know. Solid, solid day so far. I'm going to cook dinner. I put laundry in the laundry machine, so hopefully we'll finish that off. You know, we'll see what happens the rest of the day. I did only program two and a half hours today. There's a chance that I jump on the computer towards the evening. But I also might just like end up relaxing. It is 6:30 right now. I do need to cook still. I do need a shower still. So yeah, there's these like few little things that probably will just eat up some time. And by the time I get to the evening, like I might watch Atlanta and just like, you know, see what happens. Um, maybe I'll smoke some weed and just enjoy the rest of the night before waking up tomorrow. Um, I don't have any activity planned for tomorrow at the moment. Um, I should check the surf to see if there is any possibility that it's worth surfing tomorrow. It is four to five tomorrow. And there is a low tide in the morning. So, and then there's also a low tide in the afternoon. But it does say it will be good. Um, it might be worth going up to Swami's and getting some food. And then there's also some waves. I should text Chandler and find out if we should serve.

Today was genuinely good. I enjoyed a brief outing, had a catching-up call with Katie, and worked on getting an app ready for Darren, which I'm hopeful he'll find useful. It's sparked a desire in me to develop a more robust infrastructure, something I see as entirely feasible. Planning for tomorrow, I want to integrate a design from Jordan into my work and, if possible, continue enhancing the app for Darren, focusing on stronger infrastructure and deploying it to a stable, cost-effective, or free hosting service, potentially something like serverless Postgres. Dinner was light, just almonds and some couscous, not quite a meal. After a productive day, I'm feeling pretty exhausted and foresee just watching a YouTube video before bed. I'm looking forward to driving up for coffee tomorrow morning, though I need to check my car's charge for the trip to Encinitas and also plan to do some grocery shopping. I aim to start the day early, enjoy an espresso, buy some beans, perhaps a pastry, and then see where the day takes me. I'm debating between taking my laptop and opting to journal instead, leaning towards the latter to give myself a chance to reflect and process my thoughts. So, that's the roundup of today and the look-ahead for tomorrow.

Today was quite eventful for me. It started off with a peaceful morning where I enjoyed coffee and eggs; I love waking up naturally. My work focused on making various installations easier to manage in a private version of Burrito, aiming for smoother access and queries - a slow but steady process. Apart from work, I engaged in several conversations and calls throughout the day. My first discussion was with Nick, pondering over the potential of starting a company related to a hotel concept we thought of. It's an idea I need to dwell on more tonight. Lunch was home-cooked ramen, a comforting choice. Catching up with John over a call was refreshing; we discussed meeting in person soon. Then there was the OKPC call, where financial updates were a key topic. My day ended on a high note with an excellent climbing session with Patrick. It's been a productive and fulfilling day.

This morning started off late due to a restless night dreaming about the Vision Pro, but it turned out wonderfully. I played disc golf with my friend Ryan and managed to get some writing done, which felt awesome. Later, Keith joined us for more disc golf, and we also spent some time slacklining. I biked to and from the disc golf course, adding a pleasant touch to the day. For lunch, I tried a new place called Chris Ono Grinds and had their volcano chicken, which unfortunately didn't meet my expectations due to its excessive sweetness. Despite that, the day was filled with simple joys like spending quality time with friends without any drama or expectations, just enjoying each other's company. As for the rest of my plans, I'm contemplating a trip to Culp Valley but also recognize the need to focus on completing tasks and making food for myself. Though I want to balance leisure and productivity, I'm aiming for a more significant focus to achieve meaningful progress. In essence, today reinforced the importance of connecting with friends and finding balance in life's activities.

The speaker did not complete their weekly review, which usually provides clarity and insights for the upcoming week. Despite this, they have many projects, personal life commitments, and community efforts to attend to, not to mention taxes. They plan to set week intentions using voice instead of writing, including the exploration of websites for the Diagram Website Explorers Club and developing a Canvas element-based editor for Daily Jam. The technical aspects of this project involve real-time data updates, efficient pixel manipulation, and secure user authentication through tokenization. A function is set to run every five seconds to update the canvas with the latest pixel data, ensuring all viewers see a consistent image while minimizing performance impacts. Other tasks include preparing tax paperwork, organizing Boulder events for systems and AI, and sketching ideas for a project called "co-net." The intention is to spend more time outdoors in the nice weather and to schedule the next "Site Craft Hang," while thinking about potential content for the "Explorers Club" website.
