Accomplished a long term goal today

6:41 AM

I fell asleep last night a bit after 2 AM and I woke up this morning at around 5:40 AM, so I got around 3.5 hours of sleep. I did end up messing up twice last night, and I think that's a reason I woke up earlier. Next time I won't even write about messing up because even thinking about messing up might lead to me messing up. Anyway I got my entire day planned, to take 10,000 steps, work on at least 1 problem, work on at least 1 homework, and work on my trifecta. I also have actual work, so I'll have to do these things outside of work time.

5:39 PM

Well I'm an idiot, I think I just need to mind my own business for real. I got my own stuff going on so I'll do my own stuff going on. In about 20 minutes I'm going to go out for a walk, which is about an hour earlier than usual. Normally I'd leave at around 7 or even 7:30 PM, but today I'm going a bit earlier and trying that out.

7:02 PM

I ended up being distracted by something good. I'm surprised that an hour and 20 minutes has already passed, it didn't feel like much time had passed at all. Anyway I'm now going to go out and drive to the wealthy neighborhood then start walking. I'm planning on singing in public again, woohoo. It's going to be fun.

11:43 PM

Anyway I would say today has been overall a pretty mediocre day. It's probably because I only had 3 hours of sleep last night and didn't take a nap at all, but I wasn't that productive today. I have to admit my attention waned a lot throughout the entire day. Some tasks that would have taken me like an hour to do, took me 2-3 hours just because I was feeling a bit sleepy / tired / unmotivated / and also distracted. Also I did mess up once again today which probably contributed heavily to my fatigue along with only having 3 hours of sleep.

For example I went out to walk today, and I realized yesterday I could sing as I walked and practically no one would hear me. Today I sang for a bit, but I felt so unmotivated to do it unlike yesterday. As I sang and passed by this hill, I was singing "That's Life" by Frank Sinatra, a bunch of geese flew from behind the hill and they flew away. I couldn't see them from where I was walking, but apparently they were behind it, heard me singing as I walked by, and fled.

Work was okay. After work I was distracted for 2 hours doing nothing, well, looking at and reviewing a long term goal I accomplished. I guess it's a good goal to have accomplished, but it didn't really change me much. I think I was too sleepy to get it. I also sang some relevant songs that I had to look up the lyrics to on my phone to match my accomplishment, and I sang those songs as I walked, but I really just wanted to go home and nap.

There was at one point I saw something that shocked me; I saw a golf ball cracked on the sidewalk. This was a terrifying sight because I passed by a very crowded golfing range, and I mean a lot of people golf here, and they're loud, drunk, and rambunctious. I've golfed there three times myself, so I know what usually goes on there. Normally there are these nets that prevent the golf balls from exiting the range, but wtf, I saw a golf ball on the sidewalk and it was cracked in half, it had the logo for the golfing range, and it was very very far away from the golfing range (like 2x the distance of the entire range itself) but it still made it here. I just imagined a random stray golf ball falling and hitting my own head next time because I walk here frequently.

When I got home I worked on some projects and now I'm here writing. I'm sleepy, very sleepy, so I'm just gonna go to sleep since there's not much else to add. If I have any other thoughts or reflections about today, I'll add them to tomorrow's entry. Oh yeah my 3 most for tomorrow are: 10k steps, trifecta, 1 problem, and my must is 1 homework assignment.

@johanam XD I want to keep some things private and that goal is one of them, it's a silly one. I made it the title as a reminder this was the day I accomplished it, so when I'm scrolling through in the future I'd know what date it took place, but I don't really want to say what it was. Yeah it's a good song reminding us that we all have our ups and downs.
