The Highlights

  • After resuming dating again around Christmas time and things going really well for a couple months, Chelsea and I decided to give our relationship another shot so once again, I have a girlfriend.
  • I no longer own a car! Turned in my lease early because I simply did not use my car enough to justify the expense of owning it. It’s a massive relief.
  • Got my annual raise at work, and increased my 401k contribution (now matched by the company!) from 2% to 4%.
  • Went to a NY Islanders game. Got a great deal on some tickets to watch some hockey!
  • Saw The Lion King on Broadway. One of Chelsea’s friends got us free tickets, and the only thing better than an amazing Broadway show, is a free Broadway show! It was absolutely incredible.
  • Ran a 4-mile race, finishing in 39 minutes, 11 seconds. My first of 5 races I hope to do in 2020, so I'm pretty happy with this one!
  • Went on a double date to the Bronx Zoo! It was a surprisingly comfortable February day. Chelsea and I went to the zoo with some friends of hers.
  • Threw a housewarming party at my new apartment. I was joined by 14 of my friends and coworkers which was a whole lotta fun.


  • Productivity pulse of 77 (+0)
  • Met All Productive Time goal 6/19 days
  • Average 5h 00m (-23m) productive time per day

Goal Updates

  1. Europe Trip
    I decided to narrow the trip to 2 countries rather than 3 to simply the planning. Trying to figure out the logistics of 3 countries was a little too overwhelming.

  2. Healthy Habits
    Yoga classes: 0
    Runs: 3
    Average daily fiber: 18.8g / 24g (+14.6%)
    Work got a little too hectic through February for me to feel comfortable going to yoga classes in the middle of the day, so that unfortunately fell off. I did manage to get 3 runs in, which isn’t quite as many as I’d hoped to do, but I feel pretty good about them. Still a good way off from my daily fiber goal, but a decent improvement over January!

  3. Read 20 Books
    No progress, unfortunately.

  4. Non-work code projects
    No progress
