Week 2— Making Changes

Trying to make fewer excuses as I explore 7 interests of mine. This post is an update from last week and plan for next week.
Blue = Planned; Orange = Actual

Fitness/Health — First day in the gym after Thanksgiving weekend was brutal. Planning meals out have been working and need to watch snack consumptions.

Data Visualizations (Chicago VC firms dataset)— Coded the first part where circles transitions from equal radius to firm size. Started thinking about why I chose circles instead of rectangles. Also, wrote down a few more data points that I want to highlight. Next step is to figure out all the wording for the page.

GAN for Art — Still having a hard time finding a cloud to get started. All of them get expensive after a while. Might pause on this until I figure out a solution. In the meantime, I will be going through this resource to understand more about Machine Learning + Artists.

Started to spend this time on developing a Chrome Extension that shows a random word from Urban Dictionary when you open a new tab. Planning on launching it on Product Hunt on 12/3 or 12/4.

Mental Math  Vertical and crosswise technique while multiplying two digit numbers.

Cooking — The twist on Pumpkin Pie from last week is Praline Pecan Pumpkin Pie.

My friend and I try a new recipe every week and give it a twist next week

Learn Hindi — Went through two modules and slowly getting comfortable with having a basic conversation.

Videos — Still trying to find the content that I can make and enjoy. I will be taking a break from making new videos and finish the Chrome Extension first.
