Morning Pages: April 15th, 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the D.C. metro region has been in a state of lockdown. To alleviate fear and stress, my writer's group has put together a daily "morning pages" get-together on Zoom in order to touch base before starting the day. Here's some of my brief thoughts.

I think two kittens might be better than one. Especially if they're hugging each other.


I don't feel too shabby this morning. I finished reading that DevOps book I've been thinking was blocking my path to actually shipping some sort of backend for my project. I can plan out my routine, and my boss is helping me plan out my week in anticipation for the weekend. Things aren't going too badly.

I need to balance my house chores along along with my studies. I don't think it's too productive to just make a CVS run whenever, and that means knowing when exactly I'll run out of dish detergent. I also want to know what kinds of projects I'll be working on after I finish TinyDev and my habit tracker / key rotation reminder tool / digital Rolodex. I think it might be some form of CloudFormation template deployment using a Typeform-like interface. I went on a mini-shopping spree on Amazon and purchased a domain name and two boxes of dishwasher detergent pods and some batteries. Total rich person spending.

The days kind of do seem to just roll on by. I do hope these days are worth remembering. And even if they don't, I hope they make me feel good for the days ahead. Too much to ask? I'll ask anyways, what's the worst that can happen?
