A delicious alternative to the Szechuan Eggplant I love to order that answers the question: "What do I do with all of this celery?"

For several years now, I have observed a tendency in myself. I go through seasons of incredible motivation and seasons of an incredible lack of motivation. It sounds like it could be Bipolar disorder, though I don't think I can really diagnose this in myself. Besides, I'm not convinced that it's something worth knowing for sure. I did think it would be interesting to use the blog as a little bit of an experiment. Blogging daily no matter how big or small is something I believe I should be able to do as long as I stay motivated. I believe that the amount of content I put fourth on my blog may serve as an indicator of the kinds of mood cycles I got through, and may also be useful for for someone diagnosing me in the future.

Some stories I tell myself:
"This automated task is going to take a while, I guess I can watch this quick video, or browse reddit while I wait."
"I can leave this video on while I work, it's nice to have something to listen to."
"This content is educational."
Some better stories:
"This automated task is going to take a while, I guess it's time to find a low-overhead task to complete in the mean time."
"If I can leave this video on while I work, I'm accepting that the work I'm doing isn't very valuable, and neither is the video."
"This work is educational."
