What I’m Doing Now

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

Reading

In 2021 I’m planning to read 30 books, now that I’m gotten up to speed in 2020. This year I want to expand my horizons and read various genres that I’ve never tried before.

Learning

I’ve been slowly working through Crafting Interpreters. I hope to finish the book sometime early this year. I’m planning to pick up a more advanced compiler book after finishing it. As of now, my choice is Modern Compiler Implementation by Andrew Appel.

I also plan to learn a couple of low-level programming languages this year. I’m eying Zig and Rust.

Physical Activities

With the number of active COVID-19 cases in India going down and vaccines in sight, the normal life is resuming at last here. I’m hoping to get back to my running and cycling routines. I’ll also keep up the workout regime that I started last year.

Listening

I’m getting bored of my usual playlists and albums now. I’ve been hitting random playlists in Spotify to discover some new music. Let’s see what the twenties bring.

Writing

I hope to write more and varied this year. I’m aiming to publish one blog post and many notes every month.

Traveling

Another important priority for ’21 is to travel, in India and abroad, chance allowing.

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