Weeknotes 20-29

Week 29: July 13-19

The Week, Mostly In Order

  • Spent a few hours last week moving recent notes into Obsidian. I’m intrigued by the Zettlecasten method of note taking.
  • Started reading How To Take Smart Notes by Sönke Ahrens, about the history and methods of Zettlekasten. Using this book as the first experiment in Zettle notes is a little meta…
  • Starting a week of accessibility training at work. This is long overdue. I’ve been pushing for this for years. Now there’s an entire Director-level led Accessibility Initiative. Good stuff! To be clear, I had nothing to do with this new inititave, but I’m happy at least someone is doing it.
  • The nearly-two-year-old climbed out of his crib for the first time this morning. So that’s a thing now. If it keeps happening, we’re converting to a toddler bed.
  • C has an ear infection and got a COVID test today. We’re on 10 days of total lockdown until the test comes back and we make sure G and I are free of symptoms.
  • Started re-reading Morning Miracle by Hal Elrod. With everything going on, California probably going back into COVID lockdown, and a nearly permanent working-at-home situation, I like the idea of a super early morning routine to kickstart my day and have some exercise and meditation time to myself.
  • Did I mention I started meditation again this week? I’m using the Headspace app, and I’m liking it so far.
  • Going from reading no books to reading two simultaneously is not as hard as I feared. I’ve never intentionally read a book, with note taking and referncing and stuff. I’ve always just burned through a few pages every night before bed. Taking notes while reading makes things a lot easier to absorb and keep straight. Maybe I should have tried note-taking back in college. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
  • The boy crawled out of his crib again during his nap. I’m converting it to a toddler bed this weekend, and putting a latch on the door. That kid is an escape artist
  • C is still not feeling better, still waiting on COVID test
