I've started using org-roam to take notes on papers and ideas. It's okay. I was already using org-mode to track deadlines and projects (not a power-user by any means) because I was already in emacs for LaTeX and C stuff (and increasing doing my R in there). org-roam is essentially trying to replicate Roam Research in org-mode - https://roamresearch.com/ - basically a way to connect notes together and possibly include backlinks and bibliography stuff. With easy search. So, souped-up annotated bibliography. Which is something I need right now as I'm writing. But I'm also doing it to capture notes about non-work reading.
I've been running a fair bit lately. Basically 3 days a week I go ~3 miles, one day I go longer, but I've decided to get a streak going, so on the other days I go ~15 min. I am doing the streak because if I do a long enough one, I get an achievement on a site I'm trying to rack up achievements on, smashrun. I'm halfway to 50 days! If you run and want to give it a whirl, here's an invitation link: https://smashrun.com/gz.thompson/invite (I'm trying to get the "invite a friend" achievement).
Grades turned in. I think students had a lot of trouble with the sudden shift to online. I know instructors did. No further discussion of that because of FERPA. Anyway, I commend my students for trying their best in these tough circumstances and working with us.
Despite moving more of my stuff into emacs, I want to make clear I'm not at all religious about this: it's just that it's good for LaTeX and the occasional C I use, and then it just started accumulating more of my stuff because I basically live in text right now. It's also solid for R and the tool everybody uses, R Studio, which is really a nice IDE, sometimes borks up on my computer.
Had a bit of a worry this morning - woke up a little sub-optimal on the breathing. Is it the beginning of the end? I think in the end it was just allergies/asthma acting up. Running went fine today, here I am at the end of the day no worse. I'd expect either one of those to deteriorate somewhat if things were bad.
But if I do get it: damn you, Kim, and damn you, youths who were walking around in groups in the grocery store without masks.
