Doing Now

I’m in Tokyo, waiting for the visa extension. I spend most of my time on these things:

  • Working on client gigs that pay the bills,

  • writing code and doing design work for The Foundry app,

  • exploring Tokyo and taking photos,

  • reading stoics and skeptics.

I feel like I’m more focused than ever. Attempt to resume work on The Foundry was successful, (admittedly, after month of failure) and I made a ton of progress as well as refactoring work on the phone part.

Reading is something I’m trying to up my game significantly, and in 2019 I plan to read fifty books, which is roughly one book per week. Since October I noticed that reading a few books on a single topic in a row is easier on my brain than picking up the random book. I decided to pick a theme for each month. October was all about the Hellenistic age of philosophy. November will be about graphics programming. (That transition, I know.) Next book in queue is Nature of Code by Daniel Shiffman.

My activities and priorities change, so I update this page from time to time. The last update was at the beginning of November 2018.

 Finding a place to read in Tokyo is not that hard, but requires some research. This is a rooftop on busy Harajuku you’d never see from the street level.
