I wrote this post retrospectively on the 9th March 2019.

Just before writing this, I was:

Working out my finances for the month - thanks Scott Pape 😛

This path month, I achieved:

  • Getting stuff ready for Devcamp 2019 including building out the awesome website for attendees
  • 🎵Saw They Might be Giants live with friendos
  • 🎼 Spontaneously went and saw Rhye play live
  • Went to see the dentist despite dreading it
  • Went to Laneway Festival 🥳
  • 🤷‍♂️ Didn’t quite follow through on my diary habits, which was my positive change for February, but I did improve the number of times I was engaging with it at least

This month, I was reading:

I particularly enjoyed Peopleware, coming from an individual contributor who has felt a little stressed over the past few months. The importance of team cohesion and shared team culture is mentioned a lot, but wildly underrepresented in discussions about tearing down teams.

This past month, I learnt:

This one was tricky; I can’t really remember a great deal that happened over the month of February. It kind of went past rather quickly and in a total blur.

This month, I couldn’t stop listening to

  • They Might Be Giants - Istanbul (Not Constantinople) is such a darn addictive song
  • Dinosaurs + P Plates by Ruby Fields
  • Camp Cope’s “Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams”
  • Modern Love by David Bowie - I don’t quite remember how I found it, but its such a good tune

Today, something that made me happy was:

Cleaning out the shelves and getting rid of some outdated food, and getting closer to knowing what is in our pantry food-wise.

Today, something that I could’ve done better was:

Turning up on time. I had planned on going through all the pantries in my cupboards with my housemate and we had loose plans to do it mid-morning. Despite this, I turned up at midday 😭

Tomorrow, I’m going to:

Just chill out a lot

In March, I’m looking forward to:

  • Devcamp 2019!

In March, I’m going to make the positive change of:

Go outside for walks after work more.

One thing on my to-do list is:

Build out a little project to generate haikus automatically every Friday. I already have haikufriday.club, I just need to use it!

One happy photo from the past month is:

After this post, I’m going to:

Go find something to cook for dinner! 🍴
