New Adventures, Day 2: A Little Procrastination, a Little More Action

Day 2 started well — I read 60 pages of the NASM textbook, which I need to finish so I can take the personal trainer exam by July 1. After that, I relaxed for a few hours and then went to a Memorial Weekend barbecue.

When I came home, instead of reading the Apple Mobile Human Interface Guidelines or working on my flashcard app, I booked a trip to Quebec City. I did need to book the trip, but I needed to get the other things done more, in advance of tomorrow’s session with my awesome Thinkful mentor.

I also noticed that my Coursera Intro to Marketing course had a hard deadline of May 26 (tomorrow) on the first quiz, so I dedicated an hour to reviewing the slides and passing the quiz. Luckily for me, I watched the videos last fall, so this was a review for me. Nonetheless, it was procrastination.

Now, at midnight, I am reading the Mobile Human Interface Guidelines at last. I’ll spend another half hour reading, then go to bed and finish tomorrow morning. Not ideal, but I will hopefully pull some inspiration for the next iteration of my flashcard app, which I need to implement before 9pm Monday. It’s a self-imposed deadline, but an important one for me to feel continued forward motion.
