A lot of people ask me, "how did you spend your summer?". Well, here is how:

And what about you?

Yes, I had a lot more fun than those dumbasses who were exposing their bodies to the sun radiation.

Our bodies do not require such moronic activities.

Seriously, what's the point? Why would somebody want to do that? Some people claim that they require rest. Well, okay, a rest from what? That's a shitty excuse for your procrastination. My body requires constant intellectual activities and learning. Shame on you if your doesn't.

Hmm, maybe...

Maybe I can understand that if you were doing something useful for the whole year, you might want to take your female/male somewhere and spend a day or two together, just enjoying your lives and doing something fun and interesting. But shit, three months? That's ridiculous! And why summer? You can do that on any weekend.

However, don't take this graph too seriously.

It does not represent any precise information about my productivity (for example, it does not show commits to the projects that do not use github), but I still like that graph. I don't find it necessary to fill every block of the graph, it is just a good motivation to make at least something small every day. Sometimes I don't feel like doing anything at all, but after I make a few simple changes just to fill this graph, I get caught on it and end up programming for the whole night. Well, sometimes I don't, but even small changes to readmes and help messages or tiny refactorings are better than no progress at all.

Try it yourself!

Even if you're not a software developer, you can use that trick for anything else. Like "do at least one push-up every day" or "read at least one page of a book". You can keep the same graph on a paper calendar, if you wish. In that sense github is a bit better because it is more strict, it will not allow you to fill missed days without any dirty tricks.

Please be conscious.
