I’m finding I have the motivation of a brick. I can still do things, but there’s a sheer absence of enjoyment from making progress with things like re-learning Java basics. I’m just casually going over exercises and not taking much interest.
Went out over the weekend with the lads. An idea for a Manchester Music night resurfaced again. Tried some gaming on Sunday. Not really getting much of a buzz.
Not got much oomph or drive at all to push on with looking at Java or music. Seems to be true of the things that don’t need interaction with other people.

I would say the people taking part in the walk understood the purpose of it more… Continue reading Kirkcaldy Strong Town Walk
I never really thought of sleep as being motivational, but in a strange way, it is. Today is a prime example, last night I went to bed wondering if I’d figure out today why a piece of code was exhibiting some odd behaviour. Almost automatically, I knew exactly where to look when I went back… Continue reading The beauty of sleep
