It has led to some interesting interactions.
There is still a lot that I don’t know, but I know how to know now. :-)
I have a system, and it seems to work. If it falls apart, I’ll be back with this again.
This is not going to happen anytime soon, so I am going to formally put it aside for a while. But I will try again. I think it’ll just have to wait until after my PhD is done.
Odd thought: People who use 43 Things and update their goals will eventually die, leaving behind a list of what they were working on and what they had set aside at the time of death. Weird lah.
Su, M, T, W all hits.
R I actually kept it on past midnight but was all shut down by before 1:00 am.
F at about 12:15 – 12:30am.
This is step one for improving my sleeping habits, which is a longer term/larger scale goal on my list.
I think I will call this goal completed when I can do it for two weeks straight.
I have to decide (1) what exactly this means and (2) where to apply it. I can define (2) now: I want to display some creativity at work, some creativity in graphic arts, some creativity in software development, and some creativity in science. I’ll consider the graphics arts one done, though I’d like to do some more. The software stuff comes this summer, I hope. The science creativity is forthcoming, too.
Maybe it is easier to achieve if I only answer question (1) after the fact. :-)
Well I already know several methods of induction, something of the history and physiology, and want to do some work using brain imaging and the subject, so I need to focus the goal a bit.
So I was traveling across the US this past week—all four timezones in just a week and a half. I was in a stupor by the end, but when I got home, the timezone shifts seem to have reset my internal clock.
All this week I have gotten up by my assigned wakeup time, and it was only a struggle today. That is the odd part, it was easy until today. That is what I can’t figure out, why do I do well for three or four days then have a crash, as it were?
My wife and I work so much we eat a lot of food out of the house. Eating healthy that way is pretty much impossible. We have got to figure a way to make eating at home easier for both of us.
So, the British Night of the Demon was pretty good. The American re-edit, literally a re-edit, was good, too. I don’t understand why some people said it was unwatchable. It was longer and needed to be edited down a bit, but all of the scenes that were added did clarify important components of the story. No random add-in scenes with the possible exception of the scene with the air hostess.
The horrifying demon was absolutely a riot, as was the amazing transformation of a house cat into a small wildcat or leopard or some sort of more dangerous cat. I was like watching Calvin wrestle with Hobbes when his parents are around.
So I got a new weekly date book that has a calendar page opposite a plain lined page. This may work. :-)
This should be easier—but so much other stuff keeps getting in the way!!!
I suspect that some relationship exists among all three of ICA, PCA, and PLS. I think it allows me to use one to place bounds on the others. If the result is unknown, I want to mathematically establish it. If it is known, I want to publish it within the context of the field in which I work.
If that sounds like gibberish, then just replace it with “I have found a statistical project to work on.” :-)
The Abominable Snowman was ok, but ambiguous at best. Funny to see Forrest Tucker not whacking Agarn with his hat. :-)
Ok, Atomic Submarine was awful! Now on to The Abominable Snowman (1957); The Cosmic Man (1959); and Night of the Demon (1957). The last is the British version, but I also have the American re-edit titled Curse of the demon. (Numbers 76, 77, 78, and 79 if I watch the re-edit.)
I also have Fallen Angel (1945) but that is not old science fiction so it is not on the list. Just in case you thought I was only watching science fiction.
Tonight will likely be number 75 with The Atomic Submarine.
While this may not be tied to the one year deadline, I am looking for my future work and home. My wife and I visited two places that were in the running: Minneapolis and Albuquerque. MPLS is on the possible list, ABQ is not.
They seem to be trying to do a gentrification of ABQ, if it goes forward, maybe I will reassess, if not then no way. It was awful.
In an effort to look for work in a couple of years (when I graduate with my PhD) my wife and I traveled to MN and NM. MN, thumbs up! NM, thumbs down (so far). Still looking at NM. But I am not sanguine.
Yeah, this is a goal I have had for a very very long time. This is a good phrasing for it, too.
