2021 New Years Resolutions¶
I like New Years resolutions. Although New Years day is arbitrary from the perspective of astrophysics, it’s not the same as every other day from a sociocultural persective.
- Use less proprietary software
- Exclusively use brave
As of 1/18, brave is my default browser!
Minimize reliance on apple messages, transition to Signal
- Transition to neovim 0.5 by end of March
Use built-in LSP
Transition to Telescope
- Try out Arch Linux
Install arch linux on raspberry pi
Install/use a window manager
Install/use a desktop environment
Transition to gitlab.
- More consistently do FP
4 times a week
Run 5k faster
Train more zone 2
- Run a fast mile:
- Run 7:00 minute mile on treadmill in February
Run 6:30 minute mile on treadmill in June
Run 6:00 minute mile on treadmill in December
This really requires some form of tracking, hopefully automated. Unclear how I should go about doing this though.
Datetime and mile time will be recorded in personal health repo.
Train more zone 2 is not specific. I need to think about this more.
