Self Update: March 2023
Published on 2023-03-23 22:58:00+01:00
Time has passed, hasn't it? I didn't do any empty update posts for quite time now. Two years or so. Hard to tell
really because I didn't use any specific version control for the blog at that time and I was changing pretty much
everything in frenzy anyway. I'm wondering if I have another one of those in me. Still, contemplating this I saved for
some other time that may or may not come.
Enough of sad and ambiguous remarks. Let's do a proper update! The first one in this occurrence of the blog. I'm
starting to dislike it - I need to fool around with CSS again.
Where have I been? Well, it's not like I have a particular schedule or anything here. Bonus, the website is
still running, so I should be somewhere around this world, right? Right. From the analysis I did over last few days and
my journal seems I have been mainly up to five things:
- Wasting my time either on EVE Online, rarely other games, watching anime or not doing anything at all.
- Developing commercial side-project game.
- Tinkering with or brewing in my mind some smaller projects. Technically some of them were actually brewing. I had
some ideas to write about thanks to them. Some of them are visible in my public git repositories.
- Exercising and practising trumpet.
- Developing a waterspout prediction system.
In order of estimated total time, I guess.
How do I feel about it? Not great, in a very short description I feel tired and blame myself for not doing
more at the same time. This update post is an attempt to break the feeling of downwards spiral. Simply because this kind
of posts is rather easy to write and they still bring a small feeling of accomplishment. Plus it breaks my daily routine
that I had for past months nicely.
My overall dissatisfaction is additionally amplified by some of these smaller projects that I did not figure out to
finish off for whatever reason. In one matter it was a technical limitation, in other it was dumb procrastination.
To not be overly dramatic and/or depressing, here's a short note that I've been almost paranoically analysis both
sides of my moods and I am aware that I have been doing good shit, too.
What's next? One step is almost behind me. Since you are reading it you can probably guess that I finished
writing this blog post. Next things are also posts, since most of them are rather straight-forward. Well... With the
exception of the drafts that were sitting on me for years.
To hold myself accountable, I'll say that I want to write about my waterspout prediction system. A simple technical
description of the project and some thoughts about it. This project also sparked one more idea for a more typical blog
post, but I'm still waiting for my brain to brew something nice out of it.
I have no idea what this is.
