Let's share details of our mundane existences. It might make someone feel better :)
“The first step in solving a problem is to recognize that it does exist.”
Through Mon-Fri, I wake up at 5AM everyday. If it's raining, I'll drive my wife to the station at 5:20AM, so she can catch her 2hr train to work.
When I get back, I turn on the coffee machine and make the bed.
My wife loves her plush toys being used as decorative throw pillows. I arrange
her Tokidoki Mermicorno, Pokemon Haunter, Pokemon Gengar and Klepto Cat on the doona(.au).
I then hit the switches on the rack mounted power-boards, and hear the whirl of
the fan inside the Netgear GS724T switch. I then start up my little servers, a
HP Thin Client and a 10 year old ITX 1RU custom build, both running Slackware
I then feed the cats and make my coffee: 1 part hot water; 2 parts coffee; 1 part heated skim milk; no sugar.
I drink 2 mugs every morning. 3 if I was boozing the night before. My caffeine tolerance is getting out of hand.
I start up my workstation and enter my key for dm-crypt and auto-login.
I start mocp & put on some ambient/drone or psychill(currently listening to CELL - Hanging Masses). I check my mail & RSS feeds. Here, I usually spend about an hour reading through articles and renewing my disdain for humanity.
By the time I reach the end of my RSS feeds, my saved job searches hit my Inbox. I spend about 30mins sifting, adjusting cover letters/resumes and applying. If there is a phone number listed, I’ll make a note to myself to give them a call during business hours.
I’ll then do my usual single-pass web circuit of arisuchan, 4chan and YouTube.
At 8AM, I’ll eat if it’s a workout day. 2 fried eggs, sun-dried tomatoes on homemade dark rye toast with Trinidad scorpion chilli sauce, followed by a small bowl of muesli with skim milk.
If it’s an off day, I will fast until midday.
If I have found any job leads or phone numbers, I follow them to see if they lead anywhere.
I will then do general up-keep & maintenance around the house. Clean the kitchen & bathroom, tend to our vegetable garden. Apply any security updates to servers & workstations.
11AM hits, and I begin my workout, which mainly consists of body weight work & compound movements with dumbbells.
I then eat again: 200g tuna with coleslaw, mayo &Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
