Journal.Bar —A Metasystem Experiment

It gets easier. Every day it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it every day, that’s the hard part. But it does get easier.
—Bojack Horseman



Hi, I'm Brennan. I created this website to provide weekly updates regarding my goals (systems) that I currently have on a website called Beeminder as a way to keep myself accountable, as well as a place for general draft writing. For more information on the theory behind this idea, please check out the following links where I have written extensively about this: 1, 2, 3.


Thirty-Four: A New Project?

Posted: October 20, 2020
Week Thirty-four! Yet another busy bee-week. I’m really enjoying becoming increasingly focused on both the weeds of technicalities, as well as trying to think deeper on the higher concepts that I’m trying to utilize.

Thirty-Three: API Conundrums

Thirty-One: Autumn Approaches

Posted: September 29, 2020
Week Thirty-one! Another rather quiet week. I have to say, autumn is my favorite year, but I always find it more difficult to be productive as the days get shorter and colder. But that seems to be rather universal. More specifically I’m finding it a lot easier to be productive at night than durin...

Thirty: Spinning Plates

Posted: September 22, 2020
Week Thirty! For the first time in a long while, I feel as though I have too many plates that I’m trying to simultaneously spin. I had a weird experience this week, where I didn’t realize I derailed until the next day. I was perfectly sure that I did everything, and the usual alarms just complete...
