Okay. I didn’t drink coffee today. And I feel so numb. I was tired all the time and felt really sleepy. I wake up at 6.40, twenty minutes before class, make me can’t reconcile myself with the nature. This morning either, I got a thought in the toilet: What if I create a platform to help Indonesia students to improve their critical reading?. In Indonesia, critical reading is not considered critical in classrooms. And even when the teacher have the awareness, it is hard for them to find resources. I think I have to start creating the requirements for this platform.
Today I learned Circuit Analysis, Calculus II, and Introduction to Engineering and Design. In Circuit Analysis, I learned about techniques that electrical engineer used to analyze circuits. In simple dc circuit, they sometime use the wye-delta conversion, make the hard-to-analyze nodes become more feasible to solve. Calculus II was interesting either, I learned a lot about new techniques and principles in integrating equations. Almost all of them tricky and seem “unseeable”. It seem that math people have a wonderful job in doing trial-errors. I really want to know their methods in doing it. Well the last, in the introductory class, it is just feel so introductory, very simple facts stated, I can’t wait for the real deep materials to be presented.
I was not very productive today. As an “productivity system” believer, I believe that my sloth in repositioning my workspace as the ultimate cause. I can say so because when I did so, like 20 minutes before writing this, my mind become more focused and not shattered.
Today I write about my semester focus too. I believe that I have to be focused to some goals and for a time, let the other stuff worked out ordinary. I chose studying, acquiring CS-CP skills, and increasing self-control as my focus this semester. This semester will be a long journey, and I hope I can stick to my goals.
The other great thing happened today is that I did a full work out instead half. Since three weeks ago I have been working out every 5 pm. For that three weeks, I used a video from realbodyproject youtube channel, and only do half part of it. I thought so because I think it will be easier to create habit with easy task. As I (feel that I) have acquired the habits right now, I start doing the full part. The first day is today, and it felt amazing. It felt like I won an impossible to win Valorant match.
Often time we feel pain in the work out, and it makes us think to stop. And as I stop, my rational thinking was back and say “you will regret it”, so I continue the work out. I learned from today’s work out that we should only believe the plan we created when we are fit and not believe any thoughts in the pain process, because pain make us irrational.
Tomorrow I have to drink coffee. As I don’t have any classes, I will finish my business project plan about small merchants. It needs a lot of technology, which means I need to research a lot. I think that’s all. Okay triss, bye.
