Goal Tracking: August Edition

At the beginning of the year I published a post outlining what some of my goals for the year were. In the spirit of being transparent, here is the progress I made on them over the course of August –

  1. 65%-75% self availability over the course of the month.
  2. Volunteered for 0 hours  😦
  3. An embarrassing amount of procrastination.
  4. August 2016 was, by far, the most honest and open I’ve ever been in my life. The experiences I’ve had during this month have helped me grow a lot and certain moments are most definitely imprinted on the fabric of my mind.
  5. Made zero progress on learning Rust.
  6. I only managed to read one book in August — Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (a good, but NOT great, book).
  7. I read 2 research papers — Real-Time Twitter Recommendation: Online Motif Detection in Large Dynamic Graphs and High-Availability at Massive Scale: Building Google’s Data Infrastructure for Ads (I LOVED this paper. I will be writing a post about it soon).
  8. I wrote 5 posts.
  9. I learned to play 2-3 songs on the guitar.
    (Note to self — I need to learn more non-metal songs. Any time someone asks me to play a song the interaction is always along the lines of:
    “Oh cool! Why don’t you play something?”
    “Sure, but you probably haven’t heard the song.”
    Yes, almost none of my friends listen to metal music)

  10. (a) (goal achieved)
    (b) (goal achieved)
    (c) (goal achieved)
    (d) (goal achieved)
    (e) (goal achieved)
