Finished reading Chapter 3 of Mastering Emacs.
Weekend Productivity: 5/10
Ate only animal products today (in this case, only meat). Yesterday, I cut out refined sugar and processed food.
Read Chapters 2 and most of Chapter 3 of Mastering Emacs.
Listened to part of Sam Harris & Jordan Peterson – Vancouver – 1, so far, very good.
There were some personal factors in my life that acted as a psychological blocker for me to continue logging my progress recently. I hope/believe I have overcome them. Rest assured, I have been productive even though I have not logged all of my activity during the past few weeks. I am also highly considering adding new types of things to this log such as dietary and social updates. Stay tuned!
Finished reading Chapter 8 of Mastering Bitcoin. Started Chapter 9.
Listened to ~2 chapters of Autobiography of a Yogi with Sumitra. It was recommended to her by a family friend. It’s an interesting book that elucidates many aspects of eastern thought, but I’m not interested in the dude’s religion.
Finished Chapter 7 of Mastering Bitcoin.
Judge Napolitano on Kavanaugh, and the Court’s Worst Decisions – Tom Woods Show. Great Episode — probably not evergreen, though! It’s interesting to get a glimpse inside the life and mind of Judge Nap.
Made steak following the instructions in the article from yesterday’s log. It turned out pretty well, but I need to get a cooling rack and practice the execution a bit.
Read part of Chapter 7 of Mastering Bitcoin. Also went back and read a section from Chapter 6 I accidentally skipped over while switching from paperback to kindle.
Getting Your Money Out Of The Banking Sector Through Whole Life Insurance – Cashflow Connections
Coda Protocol: Using ZK-SNARKS For A Constant-Size Blockchain – the epicenter interview was better
Novogratz Talks Cryptocurrencies and Regulation – not something I would normally watch, but it autoplayed on YouTube and kept my attention. Interesting to hear his perspective on things.
The Food Lab: The Reverse Sear Is the Best Way to Cook a Steak, Period – and yes, I bought some steak today as well.
Today’s log was slightly rushed, I need to allocate a set amount of time for this before bed.
Finished reading Chapter 6 of Mastering Bitcoin
Almost finished Chapter 3 of Rules for Radicals on Audible — unfortunately, my kindle keeps glitching and it I lose my progress in the book. I will have to find my spot once I wish to resume listening.
Speculating vs Investing – Cashflow Connections Podcast (my friend is the host so I enjoy checking in on this from time to time — but it’s also a great podcast on its own merits)
Socialists and Other Ingrates – Tom Woods Show. Big fan of the show, but this didn’t contain much original content. It was a speech from MisesU, which I wish I attended this year (especially after seeing how many of my friends were attending).
Coda – Epicenter. Very interesting cryptocurrency project about which I’ve heard great things. Interested to see where this will go and if it will work.
Metamodernism – Zero Squared. I only half listened to this. I am interested in this topic but wasn’t in the mood to pay deep attention. I may revisit at a later time.
This isn’t a comprehensive list of everything I worked on or studied, but it is certainly the highlights. I probably won’t ever list everything. I thought I would add this disclaimer since this is my first post on this log.
