Sabbatical Update (Week 12)

August 27, 2021

Summary: (20 August 2021 to 26 August 2021) Continued the technical writing contract, finished The City & The City, started A Matter Of Degrees, and continued the Python class.


I finished The City & The City. It was resoundingly meh. I started reading A Matter Of Degrees by Gino Segre.

Last week

I continued the technical writing contract and the Python class.

What's next

I've got a few days left on the technical writing contract. I'll be continuing the Python class for the next few months. On a personal note, my partner's student visa got approved, which gives us clarity about our medium-term plans. At minimum I now need to book a flight for her and figure out a place to us to live for the next few months. I've started to clear out the stuff I left in my mom's storage. In that storage I have a bunch of journals from the last 5-10 years. I might read through them and start writing my autobiography.


This is a reminder to myself that next week will mark 3 months of sabbatical! I should do some introspection on how it's going.
