If you find that you are doing too many things, do fewer things.

I took BART today for the first time in, well, ever. I am actually quite impressed. It was a smooth ride (maybe a bit loud at times), and it ran efficiently. My other experience is with CalTrain which I have used quite a few times. I vastly prefer either of those options over driving myself if I can help it, but the BART was much faster for a similar commute, and it felt faster too. Given that, I’ll probably take a pass on CalTrain until after the CalMod upgrade is complete for any work commuting I have to do, at least. Probably still the better option if I want to go to a ball game.

BART: I recommend it. 👍

Just Journaling

I was going to write about my busy day today. I started writing it, in fact. But I wouldn’t want to read that, so I’m not going to make you read it either.

Instead, I’m going to think about what to write next time that would be more interesting to me and I hope useful to you.

Currently reading the audiobook: Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer 📚

Wow, powerful preface. Chapter 1 follows up with more story telling power. Thanks for the recommendation @chrisaldrich!

Bullet Journaling?

Just doing a quick tour through this. I kinda feel like my notes aren’t gelling, and I’ve started collecting kind of a lot of them. A friend said this was working for him, so I’ll take a look. Not planning to read every page though. I’ll set a reminder to post an update in a couple of months. Currently reading: The Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future by Ryder Carroll 📚

On setting aside The Discourses of Epictetus

I’ve had to move Discourses, Fragments, Handbook (Oxford Worlds Classics) by Epictetus 📚 to my Reading, but like not right now shelf. I have completed Book 1, and will shortly finish Book 2. Books 3 and 4, the Fragments, and the Handbook will have to wait until some other time. I’ll probably start with the Handbook when I do pick it back up. I have some more thoughts…
