Sabbatical Update (Week 13)

September 3, 2021

Summary: (27 August 2021 to 2 September 2021) Finished the technical writing contract, continued A Matter Of Degrees, and continued the Python class.


I continued reading A Matter Of Degrees by Gino Segre. As far as popular science books go I'm finding it lacking. The problem here is that it's a survey of a bunch of topics loosely related to temperature. The author seems to go on a lot of tangents and I'm frequently asking myself, "how is this related to temperature?"

Last week

I finished the technical writing contract and continued the Python class. My partner's student visa came through so I spent a good chunk of time finding a short-term place for us in San Francisco and booking a flight for her.

What's next

I'm working through all of the Python class homework and reading, way ahead of schedule. My brother is learning programming and has been hacking away at an automation project. Every other day or so he walks me through his code and I help him get unstuck. He's also working on building his career and I'm helping out there where I can.


3 months of sabbatical! How's it going?
