February 2024 Check-In

February wasn't a bad month. It did seem to go by a little quickly though.

New Work Project

At work, the new project has started. I was originally going to write it in React & TypeScript, but requirements have changed slightly, and I'll be writing it in Blazor instead. I've been working with Blazor at home on my league management side project and have been wanting to become more familiar with it, so this is a pretty sweet deal for me. I did end up having to throw some code out as I had already started in React, but a lot of the styling and HTML markup will translate over just about perfectly.

Trip to Hershey

Towards the end of the month, Lauren and I went out to Hershey again. We spent a long weekend checking out some of the local breweries and distilleries. We had some good food, we had some good drink, and we had a good time. The weather was even nice for the end of February.

Also, at Yah Brew, I got to have a Strawberry Swirl Push Pop Sour, which did not look anything like a beer, but it was delicious all the same. Maybe one day I'll figure out how to brew it.

Hobby Scheduling

At the beginning of the month, I decided to try something new. I have a bunch of things I'd like to work on this year and am often trying to balance my time between them. So I decided I'd try scheduling them. In reality, it's more just assigning different days to work on different things. I've been spending my Mondays and Fridays on my side project, Tuesdays and Thursdays on writing, Wednesdays on TV & video games, and weekends as whatever I want to do.

I've generally done a good job on focusing my side projects and writing, but Wednesdays have devolved from TV & video games, to also whatever I want to work on. I've spent Wednesdays writing, and working on my side projects, but I think that's okay. It's giving me time to focus on what I want to work on and I think part of it is helping me feel like I'm not neglecting one thing over the other.
