What I’m Doing Now

I’m living in Bangalore, India and working (from home) at Google.

Advent of Code 2020

I’m participating in Advent of Code 2020 and having a lot of fun solving the problems using Haskell.

Reading

This year has been unusually good for me in terms of reading books. I gorged on sci-fi by Arthur C Clarke, thoroughly enjoyed the first three books of the Earthsea cycle by Ursula K. Le Guin, read a bunch of memoirs and anthropology/history books, even got one graphic novel in. I’m still reading whenever I can find time and I’m hoping to finish twenty books this year.

Learning

I’ve been slowly working through Crafting Interpreters and finished section one recently. It has been an absolute delight. I’ve always been interested in Programming Language Theory and implementing one from scratch is almost a magical feeling! I hope to finish the rest of the book sometime early next year.

Physical Activities

CoViD-19 has shut us in our houses since March so my running and cycling has gone for a complete toss. I’ve been working out at home, mostly doing bodyweight exercises and stretching. Eating home-cooked food has helped me lose quite a lot of weight so that’s a plus.

Listening

These days I’ve been listening to New-age Garage Rock, old-school Rock n’ Roll and old Hindi songs alongside my staple of Alternative Rock.

Blogging

I’ve published four posts this year and hoping to write a few more at least. I’m also writing short posts on various topics in my notes.

This is a “now page” which itemizes the work and other priorities that I’m concentrating on right now.
