Daily blog 31 (and actifit)

2년 전

Hey cool would you look at that, I’ve posted everyday now, for a month!

I decided to do this daily blog thing for two main reasons, first is for of the @actifit bonus. This combination of fitness app gamification and real monetary rewards is astonishing to me. So many people I know track their steps and the fact that I can get paid for doing the same behaviour is incredible. Also its allowed me a way to convince some of them that this web 3.0 world might be the future (although none of them have gone so far as to participate yet). It still has its bugs, for instance ever since my last android OS update the app keeps turning off each time I go on the tube (I think, I’ll watch it for the next few days and send the team an update), but it’s a solid project other than that.

The second reason for this daily blog is for me to document this particularly tough time in my life that I’m going though at the moment. Not so you can read this now, but so that I can look back at this later and see how far I’ve come/gone (or to remind me that I’ve always felt like this, that would be worrying). The amount of work I have to do at the moment seems insurmountable. Working as a lecturer while completing a PhD is destroying me. The lecturing ends soon, which is nice, but that means the money also ends, and so does my ability to pay rent on my flat. I know the PhD will end at some point and I’ll be thrown into a different stressful situation but right now, all day, everyday I should be working and it sucks. There only one way to get past this and that to work my way through. The quicker I do the work the less poor I’ll be on the other side, that’s my only incentive right now. It’s not exactly a great one.

I started work on reviewer comments for my systematic review today. I am not looking forward to going back through 52 papers and extracting more data. But like I say the only way out is through.
