Productivity Report - June 2019

This month's banner features a typical plant-based dinner that I might have. This meal included baked sweet potatoes, onion, and green bell pepper with peas and rice made in a rice cooker and some fresh spinach. I seasoned my bowl with cumin, turmeric, kosher salt, black pepper, and nutritional yeast. No oil was used in the making of this meal.

Broad Overview

June 2019 is the 34th month in which I have tracked my productivity.

  • Fitness: 38.00 hours
  • Software Development: 54.50 hours
  • Music/Art: 0.00 hours
  • Other: 1.00 hours
  • Total productive hours: 93.50 hours

My average amount of productive hours per day (from all categories) was 3.12 hours.

Software Development

For the month of June 2019, my only goal was to work hard in my Introduction to Database Systems class. I would say that I have succeeded in that goal. So far, I have earned good grades in the class. This is a summer class, so it should be expected to be a bit busier than a regular class, but even so I have been surprised by just how much work is required each week and how much material is being covered. I can definitely say that this class is keeping me busy, and I am learning a ton. The 54.50 hours of software development time I've put in this month should be evidence of that fact.

The class, so far, has been largely theoretical, focusing on the relational database model. There have also been some more practical assignments with designing and implementing a database in Oracle. This class also requires me to write a research paper, which I was suprised to learn. I accept and welcome the challenge.

In other news, I do expect to hear back soon on whether or not I will be accepted into Georgia Tech's OMSCS program. I think I will probably receive a determination in July or August.


In June 2019, my overall fitness hours totalled to 38.00 hours. I spent 21.75 hours lifting weights, and I spent 16.25 hours on cardio. My average lifting hours per week was 5.08 hours, and my average cardio hours per week was 3.79 hours.

Not much to say other than I feel pretty good about the work I've put in this month. I followed my routine and ate well for the most part.


Nothing to see here.


In this past month, I spent 1.0 hours doing other productive stuff. I did also buy a car this month. It is a 2010 Toyota Corolla with 123,000 miles. I am proud of myself for making this responsible and frugal purchase. Because I chose to buy a $5,000 car instead of a $20,000 car, I will likely be able to retire slightly earlier.

Goals for next month (July 2019):
