July update and goals

July is here! I’m ready to kick some ass this month and get some shit done!

Elder just had her onboarding call with Galileo. She’s going to be doing her first check in in half an hour. She’s going to be doing arts and crafts, Spanish, film making, and two other activities that she picked out. I’ll have to do some hand-holding for the next week or so, but I’m excited for her.

I wound up getting sucked in to an Ethereum auditing group through a friend of mine. I don’t know how much time I’m going to be able to devote to it, but for now I’m just going to check in twice a day until they have something for me to do. I’m not think I’m really qualified to audit solidity contracts for reentrancy and overflow errors, but I’m sure I’ll be able to add value to the group and make a little bit of cash.

I’m continuing to keep an eye on PerpFi. I’m not really automating anything yet; I want to finish the last part of the GraphQL tutorial that I’m working on, and see if I can build the dashboard that I want to monitor funding rates. This week’s payments have been rather low for BTC and ETH, and I think there’s some real opportunity for CREAM funding. It’s over 250%. I want to run some numbers and figure out what type of risk I’d be taking on and if I can engineer any hedging to take advantage of the funding spread.

I’ve missed a day of Rust Exercism work but I want to keep at that; Solana programming is taking a bit of a backseat for the moment. SAIADao is holding for the moment, testing the multisig is almost complete, but I don’t have any real thoughts as to where we go from here. We’re waiting on the GAO for the moment. My guy in Minneapolis messaged me last night and said that the SAFT fell through, so I’ll have a call with him to see if there’s any other projects for us to work on.

I think I have enough cash on hand to make it through the month without any more withdrawals from the reFIREment fund. I’m going to be using the Fold card as much as possible.

My exercise routine is doing well, I’ve been on point this week with running and lifting; I think I’m almost at the point where I might need to up my weights. I need to see if the community center has weights or if I need to join a gym.

I have a project this weekend that I really need to knock off my list — the deck. I need to do a bit of work on it and prep it for staining. The wife will be really happy about that. I’ll have to do all that while fitting in an overnight trip to the mountains and a party on Monday for the holiday. It’ll be tight.
