I've been doing a lot of directional thinking about my Career. What impacts do I want to have in my life and what would I enjoy spending my time and energy on day-to-day.
I've started to get an idea of what this is and am currently experimenting with potential options.
No milestones to share here but I've been playing around a lot with F# and have found it to be an exceptionally well crafted language and a great intro to FP. Been playing around with the idea of moving CloudSeed over to it since I've been enjoying it so much and to target a smaller, more underserved market.
I have been struggling to find a place to file my "art" pursuits. It does not seem valuable to me on paper but I've now dismissed this pursuit multiple times and each time I come back to it a few months later.
I'm trying to come to terms with the idea that it doesn't need to have extrinsic value attached if there's significant intrinsic value to it. I think the subconscious returns to it are a pretty good sign that significant intrinsic value exists.
This time I'm trying to file it as "Creative Technology" rather than Art. I think my core satisfaction in this area is mostly around building cool things rather than ending with a "cool output" - as evidenced by my enjoyment of building scripts to create AI art but less around creating AI art via a web interface.
I released my latest "art" ARTIFICIAL_DREAMS this month.
My videos have received steady traffic over the past few months and HAMY.LABS seems to be gaining in the organic search rankings leading to marginal increases to total reach with little effort on my end.
I'm still trying to figure out what exactly I want to share about but I keep coming back to my interests:
So I'll stick to that for now.
Been losing fitness =(
Been okay but not great =(
Not been feeling super fulfilled. Largely due to:
- Lack of intentional adventure, connections
- Bored in Creations
- Lack of focus on myself
I'll be focusing on this in the coming months.
