I’ve been stuck on this bulky book called “From Third World to First: The Singapore Story: 1965-2000”, which is basically a recounting of the growth of Singapore from the first Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew. However, I haven’t made much progress on this book, and in order to push myself to finish, I’m […]
Results: Minimal, but present. I tried a lot of things, including: -buying a fan to lower the temperature of the room -buying a blue light therapy lamp that would automatically turn on during the mornings -charging my phone outside of the bedroom -downloading f.lux -melatonin -california poppy extract -huperzine a -a humidifier -not lying in […]
There’s a lot to be said about adopting habits that will pay dividends down the road. One thing that I’ve been struggling with, in order to most to least sever, is going to sleep at a sensible time, sleep quality, and time to sleep (the time it takes for me to go to sleep once […]
Finished all Midnight Diner Netflix recipes on January, with the exception of Crab (couldn’t complete in time) and Plum Wine (ume plums weren’t in season).

I was able to complete most of the problems by myself, but I couldn’t handle 3 of the problems, and had to use code online to […]
Originally I was going to do something else, but I stumbled upon adventofcoding.com, which releases 2 coding puzzles every day over the course of December. There’s nothing in particular I’ll be learning, but it’s a fun endeavor, and I’m making this my December task.
Well, I think the studying itself was sufficient. Planning on taking the test mid-late December. All in all, there was a lot learned, but not a lot to be said, since this task was self-explanatory.
One thing that would be useful for me both short-term and long-term is getting more proficient with AWS, and getting the AWS Solutions Architect Professional certificate. For November, I’m going to be cramming for the exam. See you on the other side.

I think the fatal mistake that engineers tend to make is that believe that design is solely about ‘making things look pretty’. Design is complex, and I may not be […]
