An Odd Day

Today was strange. Last night I went to bed at a reasonable hour and my body decided that it was time to unreason. I woke up after half an hour and then couldn’t get to sleep again until 1am.

On the plus side, I got a pretty good night’s sleep. Wake up time: around 7:30am? Breakfast: oats and yogurt and frozen blueberries. Leftover casserole stuff for lunch with yogurt and pickled onions. (Pickled onions are severely underrated.)

On the downside, I basically got nothing done that I wanted to get done today. Training has been insane. I’m doing well and learning the material, but it’s seriously time consuming. And it’s frankly boring.

My project isn’t making much progress. I’m still trying to wrap my head around the cellular automata algorithm. I’m not sure how each cell in the entire field should be updated discretely without some cells getting double attention (i.e., paying attention to themselves as well as all their neighbors). I’m not sure what the solution is, but I’d like to find a way to do it so that the calls are made in batches and can be parsed out to different threads for parallel processing. That would be ideal.

I’m blurry, but not as sleepy as I’ve been the past few days. I was literally passing out in my chair last night (which makes my body’s reluctance to sleep all the stranger). Who knows what’s going on.

I want to try to work out tomorrow morning before work. Small goals.
