0-day streak

I don't have any good pics 🤧 this morning before work, I had a writing accountability call with a friend and had a breakthrough in the structure of my blog post! later, I brainstormed a column with another friend and chatted w/ a colleague about her approach to social media/brand work

some things I did today: wrote 1500 words summarizing conference talks for work, called w/ friends to plan lit review for a research project, sang some phantom of the opera, switched my personal site domain to Netlify DNS & wrote up notes for myself (see screenshot &<katmh.tumblr.com/post/621683284602224640/moved-katmhcom-to-netlify-dns), wrote improvements I want to make to my site (katmh.tumblr.com/post/621686927752577024/personal-site-architecture)

Session 2 of my journey of learning how to improve on piano (I don't expect these to sound good — they're like the "before" part of a "before + after"). During my 1st session last week I kept in mind nothing except to generally stay in the same key. Since then I've reviewed chords a bit + watched some relevant videos, but it's all been pretty passive + I haven't practiced the concepts yet. Today I added some left-hand chords + continued exploring melodies in various keys, but being so out of practice made it hard for my hands to coordinate. I think I'll see rapid improvement once I review my chords more actively + practice playing different progressions 🎹

I made a new user on my Mac for internship work only so I can focus better & eliminate distractions. Previously I was just using a different browser, but under this new user, I have light mode instead of dark, the opposite scroll direction lol, a different browser, and only work-essential things set up (e.g. no iCloud). thanks @tmb for the suggestion

I pruned 102 Github repos down to 57 today — I deleted empty/unwanted ones, archived ones I'm no longer maintaining, and for the remaining ones, I changed my master branches to main

I also started doing multivariable calculus problems tonight! One of my goals this summer is to review/learn multi and I’ve just started to wrap up my review of single variable calc and get started on working through multivariable calc problems :)
