    Awful day. There was a powercut in the morning that felt longer than what it should have, and when the power came back, there was no Internet for quite a while. Then, the Internet came back, and I managed to do the first lessons of Java. Once I was free from it, I was going to do 30 Days of Gravity, and then the rain killed the power. When it came back, there was no Internet... until now.

    Suffice to say that I skipped 30 Days of Gravity, and I'm in no mood of writing whatsoever. I was going to do math, but how can I load Khan Academy without Internet?

    Stuff happens, I guess. I hope tomorrow is better. There's a meeting at the non-profit. I'm going to attend and see what is it going to be about.

    Tomorrow is Midsummer too.

    Dipping my toes in Java

    Comment


      On one hand, I wanted to write today. On the other hand, I finally finished transcribing the notebook I wrote a while back. It took me some time, but I did it!

      I also dipped my toes in Python today, and it feels better than Java. After learning that EVE Online runs on Python, I feet quite motivated to learn it. I'm still dipping my toes on the C family tomorrow, but Python is probably the best to start with. And is not as nightmarish to compile as Java. I have to use an online compiler for it because I refuse to install Java.

      Anyway, as I said, I wanted to write tonight, but I feel tired. I did two days of 30 Days of Gravity, and I'll do two days more tomorrow. I don't like being this far behind on the program.

      Hope you had a wonderful Summer Solstice!

        Ok, some writing today... mostly outlining than actual writing, but it's good to have some order now. I decided to pull out a typical writing prompt, and now it's getting easier to start. Outlining helps, but sometimes, it helps a lot more to rant first, and then delete the entire thing when the story actually begins.

        Already made up some goals and put an order of publishing. I don't know what goes beyond that.

        Also, I decided to skip the C family all together. After wasting a lot of time trying to install and troubleshoot IDEs, I figured it might be better to make the decision of focusing on Python now and leaving other languages for later. I know my next one will be C# because Unity, though Godot can run C# too, although its own language is very similar to Python. I'll see what the future leaves.

        Speaking of the future, got some exciting news today about the graduation. The date is closing in. I'm not saying when it is yet, even though it has been confirmed, but it's way sooner than expected. I'm still waiting on the fees I need to pay.

          Headaches caused by tiredness are the worst. I don't know why I felt so tired today, but I slept pretty much the entire afternoon. I managed to do half of the 30 Days of Gravity day before I realized I was almost late for Qi Gong. And, when I came back home, you guessed it, a powercut happened.

          When the power came back, it was already too late to do anything. Right now, there's a lot of lightning and thunder outside, so there could be a rainy night, so I feel like I should go to bed before it gets worst. And I wanted to write today, but I couldn't.

          Comment


            Well, crap. Here I thought I was going to write tonight, but my mood got killed by someone. And I was ready for it too! I spent an hour and a half writing notes about the genre so that I get it on my head, and when I was about to start, someone had a mental breakdown and needed emotional support.

            The day was good. It's the night that I hate. It's also another day in which I ate poorly, and my arms felt very heavy on the push-ups. I got really tired by number 50, and I had to force myself to keep going, until I couldn't keep it up and was close to falling. I think I got stitches on my chest and neck on the right side.

            I'm... slightly regretting doing 30 Days of Gravity. It's harder than what it seems, and I guess that missing some days hurt me quite a bit. Life has been quite hectic this month, and I'm falling apart! The worst part is that I'm not writing or editing, which is what I'm supposed to do!

            What is wrong with me? Why is it taking me too long to break out of this block? Whenever I think I got it, I fall back into it again! And I don't want a break! I already took a big break!

              Hectic day. A powercut woke me up, but I wasn't bored. In fact, I went out in the morning for a bit, until the power came back. I was going to put myself to work, and then the power went out again... for a long time. But I wasn't bored. Instead of doing nothing, I decided to do some work at the garden. The current duty is to bring back to life a rosemary that looks pretty much dead. The other rosemary, the one I cultivated, I put it on a bigger place, so that it keeps growing. New branches are forming up.

              There was also a holy basil growing outside of the house, right in the middle of the sidewalk. It must have been a bird or something that dropped a seed, and with the constant raining, it started to grow. It has been rescued and placed in a safe spot.

              I also planted some spearmint sprouts that have been on water for quite a while now.

              Speaking of spearmint, there was a moment in which the bell pepper was falling down, so it needed support. We put a stick on it so that it stands up fine. It's been a while since then. Thing is, we thought that stick was just that: a stick. The problem is that it sprouted. It wasn't a stick as we thought it was. It was actually a branch of pennyroyal, and not only is it growing, but the leaves are also bigger than the pennyroyal we have.

              Other than that, there's just a lot of cuban oregano now, and we have more four o'clock flowers. The mother plant is about to give more seeds too. We're actually looking for a white one. The one we have is some sort of dark pink, almost red, with the center white.

              That's the most interesting thing I did, as the rest of the day was spent working out and not writing. Well, not writing in the sense of stories, but doing DnD stuff. And I think we're cancelling at the last minute; our Fighter is sick.

                Forcefully, I wrote last night. Hence I didn't post.

                  I am not going to write tonight. I'm very tired. See, there was an issue that I thought was fake news, but it turned out to be real. The bank I'm a client of was bought for the second time (the first time happened a few weeks after I opened my account), and now everything is different. I had to go there, but they are still in the process of transitioning. It's pretty much happening the same thing it happened before: the bank was bought out, and then merged with the bigger franchise. Now, the franchise was bought by a much bigger one, and it's merging. I would be fine with it if it wasn't because they change everything, and keep it all censored for... security?

                  Well, I went Downtown, and they couldn't help me because they're still in the process. They told me about a place from the bigger franchise somewhere in town, so I walked there...

                  And it was very, very, very far...

                  When I came back home, I had lunch, and then I went to bed... and slept until 6 PM. I was supposed to do some stuff in the afternoon, but I slept it all.

                  I guess it was a miracle that I forced myself to do Burpees. However, I did switch the days of 30 Days of Gravity. In fact, I'll do Day 30 tomorrow, because I don't think I'll have the time to do it on Thursday. 6 sets, 2 minutes of Speed Bag Punches... That's going to take a while. Today I did Day 28, so Days 27 and 29 are the last ones. Day 29 I'll do on Wednesday. Day 27 is the shortest, so I'll do it on Thursday.

                  Anyway, I didn't write. I'm cancelling write, and I didn't do Python today. And I don't think I will tomorrow, but on Wednesday, I can keep going.

                  I'm still tired...
