Overall Review

Things are still warming up. I’ve began some activities, but I’m not fully committed yet.

What I could do better in May?

Migraines are become frequently again and now I have more space at home. I’ll start again my Lian Gong and Yoga exercises.

Write down my projects and researches in this blog

Goal for this month: 2 posts
Achieved this month: 2/2 (100%)
Total achieved: 2/24 (29.16%)

Keep reading, listening and writing in English;

I’ve been listening a lot of content in English, but I’m almost not writing anything. I think that I’ll start to write my notes in English. I’ll cheat this month saying that I achieved 100% on this task because I truly consumed a lot of English content.

Goal for this month: 12 times listening and reading; 8 times writing
Achieved this month: 12/12 (100%)
Total achieved: 12/144 (8,33%)

Have all my photos (from Japan) edited

I didn’t begin that yet.

Goal for this month: 4 hours
Achieved this month: 0/0 (%)
Total achieved: 0/48 (0%)

Have Home Assistant fully functional at my new home

Home is still a mess, I have to install my server back to begin configuring my Home Assistant again.

Total achieved: 0%

(Try again to) learn how to write in Arduino

On halt until I have my office fully functional.

Total achieved: 0%

Study programming, data science and machine learning

I’m reading and studying a lot of programming and data science. On March I tried some machine learning, but I’m still at the beginning.

Goal for this month: 8 hours
Achieved this month: 12/8 (150%)
Total achieved: 36/96 (37.5%)

Do periodical physical exercises

Nothing on April. I’ll begin on May.

Goal for this month: 12 days
Achieved this month: 0/12 (0.0%)
Total achieved: 0/120 (0%)

Meditate

I meditated 1 day this month. A beginning, but far from the desired.

Goal for this month: 12 days
Achieved this month: 1/12 (8,33%)
Total achieved: 1/120 (0%)

Avoid getting involved with Work

Yes, I did it. I thought that it would be difficult (and it is), but I’m being able to handle quite good.

Goal for this month: 4 stress free weeks
Achieved this month: 3/4 (75%)
Total achieved: 14/48 (29.16%)

Keep reading books

I think that this is the only goal that I’m being able to follow. Reading is one of the best time of my day. I relax and forget about things to do at home or at work.

Despite reading almost every day this month, I couldn’t complete any of the books that I’m reading.

Goal for this month: 0 book
Achieved this month: 0/1 (0%)
Total achieved: 3/12 (25.0%)

Do (small) courses/projects related to work

This month I took a 20 hour course at work to learn how to use Microsoft Power BI. I’d taken the same course in 2018, but I mostly forgot about the tool. Also, nowadays my data science and programming skills are much better than 4 years ago. It was an excellent course.

I’m also implementing a lot of programming on my daily work. It’s being great.

Goal for this month: 1 course
Achieved this month: 1/1 (100%)
Total achieved: 1/12 (8.33%)
