Daily Journal – Jun 6, 2017

This is my 70th journal.

I will start off this journal by saying that I actually slept through the first one hour and fifteen minutes of WWDC 2017 despite me setting my phone’s calendar alarm. Apparently, I was too tired to even hear the alarm.

When I woke up, I had already missed the WatchOS segment, Mac-related segment and iOS 11 announcement.

Anyway, I watched the remaining keynote and continued to do code refactoring. I won’t be posting anything related to WWDC here in this journal because you can pretty see the summaries and details on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and many tech sites.

I went to bed at around 0400. By the time I manage to fall asleep again (after taking Melatonin), my father was already awake and preparing to go to work. While I was tossing and turning in bed, my neighbors above was making a lot of noise. These mainland Chinese rented some rooms upstairs, are very noisy, and always flood my room with cigarette smoke.

Woke up again at around 7am and went to work extremely groggy.I got to note that I think I may been suffering from a burnout of some sort. So far, none of the techniques I tried seems to improve the time between my “excited” state and “burnout” state. I wonder if it is because of my “multipotentialite” nature. I did mention something about being a technical generalist in yesterday’s journal.

Here is a video about Multi-potentialite by Emilie Wapnick.

There also has been people advising that I should go for longer runs and it will improve my endurance. I tried that. I have been increasing the distance I ran but I have yet seen any visible result.

Then there is also a possibility that I may have adult ADHD. If that’s the case, it may also explain some of my attitudes and actions. I will let professionals do the diagnostics as I am no psychologist.

While at work, I took two cups of coffee (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) in order to stay awake from my lack of sleep. And I also couldn’t concentrate very well on my refactoring. Yeah, my refactoring seems like it’s never ending. I admit that it’s because of my recent tendency to miss out things, possibly due to memory issues, and it has been getting out of hand. Maybe I have given up on quality or just simply got too tired with work in general. Or maybe my standards has fallen.

Anyway, I shall go and chill for the remaining hours.

Here I conclude my journal for today.
