Sabbatical Update (Week 18)

October 8, 2021

Summary: (1 October 2021 to 7 October 2021) Quality time with my partner, enjoying San Francisco, visiting Joshua Tree, continuing to read Energy and Civilization, and continuing the Python class.


I finally finished Energy and Civilization by Vaclav Smil. Lots of interesting ideas, but a long read! I'm not sure what I'll read next.

Last week

My partner flew in on Friday. We haven't seen each other for over a month so we spent Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday enjoying each other's company and getting her settled in SF. We are subleasing a furnished place that overlooks the Panhandle. We did deep cleaning and tidying on Saturday. On Sunday we went to the last regular season San Francisco Giants game. It was a historic game (the Giants finally clinched their division and broke the franchise record for most regular season wins) and it was my partner's first time seeing the ballpark so that was a special experience. I can't remember what we did on Monday and Tuesday. Aside from some chores I think we walked around Golden Gate Park a bit and enjoyed the neighborhood around Haight & Ashbury. On Wednesday I drove with my brother and mom to Joshua Tree. We rented an Airbnb for her birthday and will be here until Sunday. I didn't do any work on Bookworm Club. I completed a quiz for the Python class.

What's next

I'll keep working on the Bookworm Club.
