Apparently if I am not here I don't do anything. 

 

Days lately consist of:

  • wake up at 6:30
  • drive 40m to work
  • work 10+hours
  • drive 40m home
  • cook + eat dinner
  • be tired - by now it is usually past 8pm
  • Sometimes open my laptop and do more work
  • sleep

 

Also, the fact that it is dark at 4:30 pm does not help. 

 

Try to do some form of movement for 10m/day. Either walk, stretch, lift, whatever.

That is so much working. :[ I, too, hope there might be a reprieve soon? Do you have PTO planned for the holidays at least?

 

Are movement breaks a possibility during your work day?

Oh, that's a lot, and definitely not nothing. Coming home in the dark can't be fun. I assume by nothing you mean nothing nerdy or fitnessy? Are you up for squatmas?

Spoiler

From the stanford encyclopedia of philosophy on the problem of other minds: "Radical doubt may be thought to arise when one presses the third sceptical consideration, the possibility that an Evil Demon (or mad scientist) has contrived that all others apart from myself are automata/zombies—non-thinking, non-feeling individuals who move in a manner similar to the way I move. We can associate a ‘thin’ sceptical problem with the former doubt and a ‘thick’ sceptical problem with the latter (Avramides 2015). The former is a problem we grapple with in our everyday lives; the latter is a distinctively philosophical problem. It is the thick skeptical problem that leads to the possibility of solipsism—that I am alone in the universe."

 

But here's the real question. Since meditation is about emptying the mind of thought, does a zombie automatically succeed at the meditation mini challenge? And what percentage of their bodyweight do bots choose for squatmas?

My question, therefore, is does a realization of sonder heighten feelings of solipsism, or rather reduce?

 

It's quite possibly why we all feel like the protagonist of an RPG game surrounded entirely by forgettable NPCs.  🤣

Is it, though? It's a popular description, but not actually, I would argue, true. :D

I first experienced this around 12 or so when I was riding in my parents car trying to wrap my head around the idea that all those other cars on the road had somewhere specific they were going, like how could there be that many PLACES (I swear I was not on any substances) for there to be enough destinations for all those CARS?

Well... I mean, technically I have met half the people on this thread in real life. But mostly at CNF, which is still nerdfitness, so DEBATABLE if we exist outside of NF.

Nothing nerdy or fitnessy is correct. Some nerdy I guess. I did watch all of Avatar the Last Airbender I think since I was active last. Which was V GOOD.

Squatmas? Go on....

When is the light at the end of this work tunnel?

Well.... the thing we thought was the problem turned out today to be NOT THE PROBLEM. I am not sure yet if this is good news or bad news. It is possible we have to send hardware back to a vendor for a fix, which means I'm not testing the rest of the year. In that case I would like to take PTO the week of the 21st and go see my family.  (We get paid holiday the 25th-1st).  If not, I'm still crunching away and probably finish this campaign by the end of January and can take a break then. It would be nice to take PTO as I am currently maxed out not accruing any more. Tomorrow should give me a better idea what this looks like. 

 

Movement breaks: really depends day to day. The big thing is when I am up at the test site (most days) it's not really the best place for it. Lots of dirt, bugs, etc. and it's a big open building where I don't have privacy like I do in my office. I do get to walk around a bit more, but wouldn't want to do anything where I'm on the floor at all. I could maybe work in some squat breaks or something like that.

 

 

Yesterday I did a 30m workout video from my gym that was recovery focused. They are live streaming workouts 2x/week and recording them for members.

I am about to do my 10m workout and just going to do some gentle movements. Probably some hangs and some down dogs at a minimum, but just gonna see how I feel.

I have that when i go driving around to other countries, and pass large Industrial area's. How come there is so much work to be done, businesses rely on other businesses, who rely on other businesses for work, who rely on consumers buying things, to keep the businesses going. Do we even consume that much to keep ALL of those businesses going? And there are so many people everywhere. They are all a very small cog in a huge economy. It's mind baffling to me.
