CAVEAT LECTOR: This is a daily note! Sometimes they’ll be structured, sometimes they won’t. These are more for the benefit of my near- and long-term future self, but I do tend to publish them in case they’re somehow helpful for other people.

Today’s Plan

Okay! With myself SelfControl’d this morning, feeling very optimistic today!! I think, today, I can finish up my part in the MVP of an internal project. As a treat, I’m going to take a closer look at tuning up our old Backstage deployment. I’ve been feeling a whole lot better about my TypeScript knowledge & workflows as of late - and my engineering in general - so taking another look at Backstage after ~8 months feels like it may be refreshing.


  • Finalize MVP parts for internal project


  • Re-clone and get Backstage local environment running
  • Look into Backstage Plugins


  • None! It’s Mean Girls night, baybeeeeee 😎

Today’s Report

  • UPDATE 3PM: The SelfControl for Raycast integration was, in fact, worth the time spent. Today’s B&M blocks have been the most productive in probably 2-3 weeks 🎉

Slight end-of-day, while I have the laptop open - we ended up stopping the new Mean Girls after about 10 minutes and just watching the old one instead.
