Woke up at 6 instead of 1am today, first day back in home timezone. Heck yeah! This is a good sign!

tech companies at hackathons needs to diversify the swag they give out. if you want the best talent to remember your name don't give us cheap nylon bags and t-shirts. the inclusion of cat ears and thigh high socks will help you find some of the best programmers around. trust me.

my hotel bed in Munich just has a comforter. is this just how european bedding is? is there likely a flat sheet hidden somewhere? I'm getting uncomfortably warm in the night, so if I could use less cover I would, but I'm not sure it's a thing?


This time I woke up at 3 instead of 1! I think I'll go back to sleep for a little longer!

8:30-9:30 happened pretty much involuntarily, in weird sideways across the bed crash mode; 9:30-11 was also fairly involuntary but at least I got under the covers and texted my partner goodnight. 11-3 was easy although I'm wide awake now. 7 hours is pretty good!!!

food, jetlag~ 

I actually love it, I'm not a morning person so I never get to hear birds at dawn and so on, this is kinda nice

Hear (the sfx from doing your rotation)

Feel (satisfaction from doing rotation)

Think (about nothing but your rotation)
