The Daily Hour

The Daily Hour experiment continues with only 3 days skipped in the month of January (all blamed on Evil Mike's various wedding activities). I have not yet tired of any activities yet, so the basic categories I've selected from remain the same. However, I will probably get around to learning some new computer languages in the near future.

The chart on the right shows how I've spent my time so far. I've made progress in each area and learned a few lessons along the way.

  • Wikipedia: My daily reading of the featured Wikipedia article is occasionally enlightening, but more often boring. People seem to enjoy creating long, tedious articles for trivia tidbits that could be explained more clearly in a single sentence or on the back of a Trivial Pursuit card. Also, Wikipedia articles about single episodes of TV shows are dumb.

  • Paravia: I have successfully broken the inertia of my year of inactivity on this wiki exercise.

  • Organization: I have sorted several files, cleaned up tons of junk on my computer, and cleaned out that top shelf full of wine bags in the dining room.

  • Exercise: There are no episodes of 24 left, so that must mean I'm permanently done exercising. However, Rebecca does not approve of this interpretation, so I'm now rewatching the less sucky epsiodes of Community.

  • E. Bass: I'm trying to relearn the exercises I can already play, but without open strings. It seems pedagogically poor to introduce open strings up front if you're just going to instruct me to stop using them ten pages later, right? Right?
