March 2017


Most of the day was spent out with friends and family. Got a little done.

  • Timing changes. Rescheduled a recording session for #patreon, and made a decision to slow #invasion work for a few weeks while my partner prepares for a potential career switch.
  • Pushed through a couple frustrating problems around #chronicle (new name for #wireapp). Have the navigation drawer working (FINALLY), am moving on to recycler view + tablayout.

Although I don’t feel productive, things are good. Scheduling helped!

  • Finished a draft of #freelancing content. Took longer than expected.😪 Started with a design I didn’t like, and ended up redoing it. A reminder never to rush.
  • Been playing piano, recording to encourage good practice. Discovered I overcomplicate when playing, and have since benefited from lowering the # of chord changes I do. I’m improving, would love to release an album soon! #music
  • Got stuck in unity for #invasion, scheduled a call to go over things with a friend. Everything should be👌 tomorrow.
  • Had a good meeting for #patreon. Now have a list of launch tasks, and a deadline of 2 weeks for a content queue. I’m confident the content will be good, but am realistic that it’ll take time to gain traction and make it profitable.
  • Had a (slightly silly) idea around #minimalism. Going to restrict myself to one bowl, plate, utensil and bottle, and wash each every time. Might be nice not to use the dishwasher.

Did some scattered work today. A little bit on #invasion , some #music recording, but nothing substantial otherwise.

I’ve realized I need to start a habit of strictly scheduling what I’m doing and exactly when. I think I can attribute all of my success Monday to the great planning I did.

I’ll plan out the rest of today and tomorrow and report back!


So-so day today. Mostly recovering from my crazy night last night. Need some ☕️

  • Worked on the #patreon for 1-2 hours today. We’re almost ready to create a queue of content.
  • Worked 1-2 hours on ambient music for the game. #invasion I wanted something to listen to while designing, I’d like the music and the mechanics to synergize well so might as well start early!
  • Got some potential work from a business friend. Also scheduled a meeting.
