Daily Log #7

I think I have finally caught up with my sleep debt because I woke up early today. So I used the chance to make myself a bowl of cereal and eat some cake for breakfast. After that, I went about editing and publishing my Daily Log.

It was almost 9am I sat down at my desk. I started to do some work when my team lead call for a meeting at 10am to follow up on the stuff we have done. The sub-contractor would be coming in tomorrow to do the integration and our things should be ready for that. During the meeting, I admit I wasn’t actually very interested in what’s going on.

I actually tried to write a poem and doodle but none of them turned out to be any good.

After the meeting, we went for lunch. Today lunch for me was a tough chew. I ordered roasted pork with char siu rice but the meats were pretty tough and some of them actually got between my teeth. I hate that. I guess next time I won’t be ordering from that stall anymore.

Then we went back office and I went to implement a functionality that the user would want. It’s call multi-tab search result. It took some hacking with the help of google before I got it to work using Telerik for WPF. Getting something to work felt great even though I am kind of disengaged from my work.

My friend also told me that he liked my latest post about self awareness and said my writing has improved a lot. Thank you for that. I will keep working on my writing and improve further.

Just as I was about to leave office, my division manager decided to come in asking to talk to me. However, as I was rushing home it was rescheduled to tomorrow morning. Of course, there are a few things that went through my mind but none of them good. I just know that there is nothing else I could do and so I acknowledge those thoughts and move on.

Once I was home, I got back to watch Jessica Jones and found myself binge watching until episode 6 of season 2 when I decided to stop. I plan to sleep early so that I can wake up early to do some more writing.

I have been making it a habit to jot down ideas, statements or phrases as soon as they come to mind. It’s so that I will have potential content to write about and don’t get writer’s block going forward.

The other thing that I have been doing is interact with articles posted on medium by leaving behind comments. The main idea is to show up everywhere and get myself out of the comfort zone of writing in some dark corners of my house while living inside my own head. I know for sure that’s not how one improves their writing.
