In this limbo-esque period of time I'll be thinking about what I want to tackle in terms of personal projects this year.

The foremost project will be my time tracking infrastructure. With Ledge I now have a good way of tracking my time, and once data starts accumulating I'll need a way to visualize and make inferences based on that data.

I might totally steal the visualizations from @joshavanier's log 😉

I return to work tomorrow, but the next two weeks are going to feel a little weird, with this week being short due to the new year and next week being short due to my wedding.

Things won't truly return to normal until the 21st, at which point I can really hunker down to get some real work done.

One of the things that I struggle with is always feeling like I need to be productive, so allowing myself to not do much of anything has been incredibly freeing.

Over the past few days I've been doing a whole lot of nothing, and it has been pretty refreshing.

I've sunk 20-odd hours into Assassin's Creed Odyssey and have been having a blast playing it. Single player games usually can't hold my attention very well, but I've just been absolutely engrossed with Odyssey.

I've also been spending a lot of time with my fiancée as we finish putting the final touches on our wedding, which is fast approaching.

I was just looking at the accounts I follow on Twitter(1000 of them), I think about a third? Maybe a quarter of them have been abandoned?

I have recently noticed that there was increasingly more Japanese tweets in my feed, and less things from people I knew. I guess a lot of friends have left and didn’t really say anything. Some people I’ve tried to look up on Facebook and their profiles were gone too. Have social networks died without me realizing it?

Today has been very productive.

But now, I must sleep.

Since I'm on an infinite loop kick this week, today's creative post is one of my favorite geometric loops. I made this one a few years ago when I first started working with Cinema 4D and turned it into an AR animation for one of my business cards with this design as the target -

I keep telling myself I should switch to stable Rust, but here I am, still on nightly.

I'm sorry...

I couldn't resist...

These new features...

They're just too tempting...

I love places where you can see "Good night" and "Good morning" at the same time

Goodnight Merveilles Town. I'm off to catch some 💤

I spent some time tonight working on Ledge, a command-line utility I'll be using to help me with my time tracking.

Ledge is written in Rust and is open sourced under the MIT license.

How is anyone supposed to have a serious conversation about Mastodon when the primary terminology is "toot"?

Now what shall I get up to now that I don't have work for the rest of the year?

Step 1: Set up your own Mastodon instance
Step 2: Don't invite anyone else
