I’m feeling great this morning, mostly because I went to bed at a decent hour and slept in the big bed all by myself. Woke up at 5:30 because I told myself I wanted to go running this morning, but laid in bed for an hour anyways before getting Younger up for school. I had a message on my phone from the school that the bus would be late, so I drove her in and was back while people were still standing at the stop.

I decided I’d go for a run anyways. I was a little worried about my left foot, which had given me problems on my last run and was a bit off, so I tried to cushion it by hitting with more of a mid-strike. I had listened to someone on Profit Maximalist who ran a lot off hundred-mile races, and he’d mentioned that mid or fore-strikes were the way to go long, so we’ll see how it works out. I got back to an empty house, so I did my morning meditation and now here I am.

My brain is pretty much thinking about Star Atlas or Solana now. I was making some changes to the exchange code last night, talking with people about pulling data from Solana, figuring out how we’re going to automate the minigame for profit. Even while I was trying to be still this morning, my brain was just pounding along trying to figure out various things. The problem now isn’t lack of ideas, it’s figuring out which one is the most important and needs my immediate focus. That’s tough.

I finally finished the deck yesterday, spraying the last of it. It looks pretty good, but I’m can’t say I’m proud of the job. I’m just glad it’s done. Looking back, I’m not sure that I would have done the project myself or paid someone to do it. I have no idea how many hours I spent on it. And while I might have saved some cash doing it myself, I’m not sure it was the best use of my time. I just have to think of it as exercise, or homesteading. I’ve still got some cleanup to do to get some stain off of the siding, but I’m ready to move on to my next home project, which will be cutting down a tree and some overgrown bushes in the front yard so Missus can redo the landscaping. I still want to build out the side yard for a bigger garden, but I’ve got a lot of stuff to cut down first.

It’s Monday, which means I need to do the weekly dao status report. That usually takes me till lunch, then I need to look at a UI bug on the exchange that has to do with a new design we pushed to dev last night. I’ve got lots of ideas about how to integrate some of the asset metadata into the site. I need to work on our Serum market indexer, it needs backing up, or balancing; I really want to get the database in Elasticache. And there’s a whole list of stuff I need to look at with Solana with regard to historical data that I need to figure out, and long term I need to be able to write my own contracts. There’s a lot going on, but I feel like I can do anything at this point.
