Day 23

Starting today I will only use the stairs when going up and down to my office on the 8th floor.  Always wanted to do it, but made up excuses not to.  Well not anymore!  Climbed it 4 times.  Hope my legs don't give out later...

Also finished reading The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck .  It's an informative and humous read on how to view life differently:

  • Maybe the goal of happiness is a bad thing?
  • Why entitlement brings more problems?
  • How caring about too many things is bad you?

I will definitely read this again when I need some soul searching.  Recommended :)

I did the same with avoiding elevator when I'm going on the 4th floor to the lab. It keeps me in shape, probably with Slight Edge effect. :D

So, good one! Just practice it for a year, and you'll see visual results. :)

Day 26

Went shopping for the whole day with the Mrs.  Wanted to get some storage boxes from Ikea, but ended up looking at stuff that we believe we needed for our home.  That place is a time trap!

Day 28

Shopping day again today.  Once home me and the Mrs did a massive spring cleaning of our home.  Threw out like 80% of my games!  The rest I'm keeping because I'm still emotionally attached to them (they were some good games!) or I'm planning to play them again to some degree in the future.

Day 29

Cleaned the house and took a nap.  Then got a call from my boss about a "critical issue" because a customer decided to do testing on a Sunday.  A Sunday...I wish I was that motivated to work on weekends.

Day 30

Just a plain old regular day at work.  Got home and did coding again, completing another milestone for the project. Using  Trello really helps me organize my tasks and keep my focus on a single objective.

Day 31

Long day at work, got home really late.  Questioning if this work is really worth my time and don't see it getting any better.  Sigh...

Going to bed as soon as I can, no coding today :P

Day 32

Another bad day at work.  It just keeps getting better and better!  

Today did some Google Sheet coding.  My old game clan asked me to help them create some new functionality for the Google Sheet I helped developed for them.  Didn't think it was fair for me to just tell them to do it themselves when I quit gaming, so decided I could help them out now and then.  Besides, been quite awhile since I touched JS.  Nice to do something different :)

Day 33

Nothing much to report for today which is a good thing considering the recent events at work.  Hopefully, tomorrow will be uneventful as well :)

Day 35 & 36

Forgot to update on Sunday, my bad.  Did the morning hike and hit 10K steps!  Didn't know it was that many steps, interesting to know.  Now the question is how can I achieve the same during the weekdays.

Today worked from home, didn't feel like showing up to the office.  Wasn't much to do actually, so it worked out for the better.  Tomorrow will be heading back to wife home town and won't have internet access.  Sucks, but at least it also means no games too :)

See you guys next week.

Day 46

Back to work after my holiday and literally took me from 9 to 5 to clear all my emails!  What a productive day...

After work went shopping and once home, got back right to coding.  Nice to be doing something familiar again :)

Day 48 & 49

Yesterday my sister family and my parents visited me and my wife for dinner.  A pizza dinner. The kids loved it while watching a Pokemon movie.  Much better than letting them be glued to Ipads or smartphones.

Today got more 40K books.  Took me 1 hour to check out as they were holding an event.  Was an eye opener for me as I thought this kind of miniature tabletop hobby is non-existence in Malaysia.  Can't wait to get painting next month, this stuff is expensive!

Day 51 & 52

Not much, though been thinking more and more about quitting my job, money is always preventing me from doing so :P.  No coding though, which is amazing, replaced with more reading.
