Weekly Report for the week ending in 2013-10-20

Monday, Oct 21, 2013

Shortened work week, and not very productive. Most of the habits I’ve been trying to establish have slipped. I made progress in major projects at work,

After receiving the digital scale from Amazon, I started wheighing my coffee, shooting for James Hoffmann’s guidance for coffee ratios.

The wet shaving project continues; I’m now trying the Astra Superior blades, and have settled for a four-pass shave, with very good results. No razor burn in the neck, which was a problem at the beginning, and a smoother chin; I still have some trouble with the upper lip, though.

My main PC, ‘hubertus’, was updated to Ubuntu 13.10, saucy salamander; the upgrade process was painless, and I installed Variety, a utility for automatically downloading and setting random wallpapers.

Time analysis

Sleep hygiene was very poor; every attempt at going to bed earlier resulted in waking up in the middle of the night, putting this week as the one with least hours of sleep since I began tracking (7.25 per day).

Time dedicated to routine tasks was also very low, despite the wet shaving project making me take more time than usual getting ready.

A lot of time was dedicated to choosing the hotels for our upcoming trip; no easy feat with so many variables to take into consideration.
