Was going to go out with S after work but he cancelled at the last minute because of a work thing. Went out with K and his roommates instead and had lots of fun. Played table tennis for the first time in a while.

Wasn't able to lucid dream on the first try. Big surprise. Will keep trying. Meeting with capstone sponsor was interesting. Sponsor is asking for more individual contribution from one of our teammates, which I've seen coming for a while now. It was good that it was brought up, and we discussed a plan to improve things for the team. Played Pokémon in the evening.

Had a crazy vivid dream last night. Told K about it and he said I should try lucid dreaming. Never seriously tried before but I will tonight. Worked on project stuff in the evening.

Started playing the Pokémon Diamond remake. Diamond was my first real Pokémon game as a kid. They did a really good job converting the 2D world into 3D. Did two short workouts in the evening and had a shower before bed. Feels nice to go to bed nice and clean.

Still feel a bit off. Less motivated and more foggy. Played guitar again and walked the dog. Worked on capstone stuff in the evening.

Felt tired and foggy in the morning and early afternoon. Haven't had a good sleep in three nights now. Headed home from K's place and played guitar for a good while. Learned a few Linkin Park songs. I don't think the music helped my mood though. Feeling a bit depressed and not sure what to do with myself. Getting in my own head about things.

Slept terribly last night. Kept waking up every few hours. Meeting with project sponsor was good this week. Trying to be more self-reflective and stop negative intrusive thoughts. Discussed this and other similar concepts on a call with S while working out.

Visited grandparents after work. Had dinner and took some plants for them. They're moving tomorrow. Watched the Seinfeld episode “The Soup Nazi” with my parents. My dad has been referencing that episode for almost as long as I can remember, and now I finally understand it. Worked on project deliverables with D. He caught covid from a friend, making him the first person I know to test positive.

Meeting with professors was a bit off this time. S talked for 23 out of the 30 minutes and went into a bit too much detail in my opinion. The professors mentioned this to us and asked that we make it more evenly distributed in the future. Talked with the team afterwards and we agreed that we need to work on it. Did some more work on project stuff in the evening.

Starting to write a final report for my work term. Walked the dog with my mom and sister. Had dinner with family then read a bit and worked on robot simulation environment setup. Worked out before bed. Legs still feel a bit sore from running stairs.

Got a haircut. Read a bit and tried to relax. Took a bath to soothe my legs, which were sore from running yesterday. Watching lots of videos on mental health and well-being topics and enjoying learning more about it.

Super weird dream last night. Almost thought it was real when I woke up. Ran stairs and hills in the morning with dad and his biking group. Probably my hardest workout this year. Visited grandparents afterwards. Walked the dog, watched Seinfeld, and did a bit of work on my project. Still in a weird in-between phase of getting over A. Need to remember there's no rush, but I want to move on.

Got dinner with K after work, then met with Z and hung out with the two of them. Had a good time just talking and relaxing. Felt nice to unwind after a tiring week.

Meeting with project sponsor was good. We had lots of updates this time. Dog had to go to the vet after stepping on glass while on a walk with my sister but he's fine. Played Subnautica 2 in the evening.

Watched American Psycho in the evening after D suggested it. It was really interesting. Worked on project objectives for this week and made some good progress.

A very famous film I've still somehow never watched. Alicia B is the biggest film enthusiast I know of amongst us pandas

American Psycho is one of my favorites. Couldn't manage to read the book though.. movie is peanuts compared to it.

Huge rain and wind storm. Power went out at my house and stayed out all afternoon. Had to give my project proposal presentation while sitting in my car in the driveway charging my laptop and using a cellular hotspot. Played Subnautica 2 once the power was restored.

Walked the dog in the pouring rain with my sister, then watched The Eternals with her and my dad. It was a bit of a convoluted movie. Did practice runs for the project proposal presentation that'a tomorrow. Got K and another person as audience members and they gave us some good feedback to keep in mind while presenting. Feeling ready. It's nice to have such a good team for this project.
