Welcome to Friday amid the great quarantine of 2020. I sat down to write a little bit this morning and got bogged down thinking about how to best spend my time. Recently, I have started to focus back on picking up training and coding skills. Now seems to be the time to take my machine learning skills to the next level. Maybe some of that is my constant interest in getting more certifications. I keep doing them to prove to myself that knocking these things out is both possible and to understand how much of a commitment this type of training actually requires. One of the interesting things about being an adult is that I do not have 12 hours to do anything continuously. That amount of time in one block just does not exist anymore. I really have a maximum of 2 or 3 hours to do something. That means taking on something monstrous and trying to complete a Herculean task might not be possible anymore. Even writing that last sentence made me a little bit reflective about what could have been if the time when I had it had been used to its maximum potential.
It has now been over 2 years since I deactivated my Facebook account back on April 4, 2018. Not using Facebook took me a day or two of adjustment, but then I stopped picking up my phone to check for notifications. I try really hard to keep my Google Pixel 4 XL smartphone in a Pelican G40 personal utility go case. That is really the best way to keep from checking for updates.
