Thank you, past me

Starting off this morning I had a pretty good idea of what my day would be about, but it hadn’t occurred to me to think about whether or not I had any specific task I was working on when I left.

So I’m thinking “whaaaaat?! why did I leave uncommitted crap hanging around!”

I have git status aliased to ‘s’, and git diff aliased to ‘d’, so ‘s’ showed me that only one file had changes, and I decided to take a peek with ‘d’:

21 days off complete!

21 days of rest including 7 days of camping! Next up is mathematics. Where to begin remains hazy… but that can be figured out tomorrow.

This might be a good starting place. Alternatively, reading Mathematics for the Practical Man could be useful. (It’s what Feynman used to teach himself as a teenager!) There’s also the calculus section of better explained.

The best route forward is likely to choose a goal, (like a problem to solve or equation to deeply understand) and then work toward it. Destinations make paths easier to find.
