Lost Ark came out and it turns out, it was pretty fun to play and research the game through the early to endgame.
This put me back on my blogging rate and personal development work… but it was worth it to be honest. New game launches are always the best part of gaming.
Now since I’ve reached the endgame to the most part… we’re getting back on track.
I want to make up for lost time (no pun intended) by re-evaluating what I want to do, and not much has changed except that React will be swapped to Angular, as it’s more relevant for my work at TD for now.
According to my webtime tracker app, most of my distractions (and time spent) is on YouTube… with a staggering 25% of my total web browsing time, with the next highest with google at 6%. I do attribute it to researching lost ark and watching programming videos though… but definitely something to be more cognizant about.
As usual, I make monthly resolutions for this month, and the focuses of choice are:
- Become more active at the gym (4x a week, sport days count as a day)
- Cardio more (skip rope, runs)
- Minimize distractions and gaming time (still want to do my dailies tbh, but it’s only an hour a day if efficient) – turns out reddit doesn’t take as much time as I initially thought, but sub optimal either way because of all of the breaks in focus; definitely a habit that I want to break
- Learn Angular (NgRx was definitely difficult to grasp, it took way longer than I expected to get things working at work)
There were other things I kept in mind, but generally I find that the smaller and more focused the goals, the easier it is to commit to (as well as more effective).
