Thirty-Eight: Obsidian Highlights

 | #thirty-eighth-week

Week Thirty-eight! Not a very eventful week. I’ve been getting really interested in a program called Obsidian, which is a “a powerful knowledge base that works on top of a local folder of plain text Markdown files.”

The really cool thing is that static site generators like Jekyll also only require plain-text Markdown, so I’m looking to combine the two in my project.

But anyways, enough about that, let’s get into the bees! I had a bad derailment with /distraction this week because my little brother started streaming (and got affiliated already!)

But I set an alarm on my phone to go off at 11:45pm to specifically remind me to check the RescueTime dashboard until it becomes a habit (again), and make sure everything is okay for the day, and one earlier in the day to make sure I’m on the right track.

I had a weird glitch a couple days ago with Draft and /writing where it wouldn’t update the word counter no matter what I added or how many times I refreshed the Beeminder goal. It was around 11:00pm. The next day, it jumped up to 1,500 words for the following day. No idea why, exactly.

I’ve decided to make my public daily journal anonymous, since I’m still pretty self-conscious to share that much. 😅 But it’ll still help me with my daily goals (and maybe I’ll finally start /morning_pages correctly now!)

Also, I posted an update for all my systems in another thread, you should add your own favourite Beeminder goals!
