Day 34: Non-Working Memory

Took 125mg caffeine today for the first time ever. Didn’t feel terrifically different, maybe a fair bit more perky in the first half of the day. Also took iron today, felt mildly sick for the first hour or so of waking.

Generally very poor working memory today. Until about noon-ish I felt pretty great, then conversation became hard and keeping / parseing things said seconds previous is exceptionally difficult, a familiar feeling and a likely symptom of fatigue-such-and-such. Not great, makes conversation quite difficult.

Problems are not tasks! Problems are not tasks! This is a useful distinction! Tasks are easier than problems. Tasks can be done whenever, problems need thinking fuel to solve.

Pretty difficult to plan day around an unknown nap time.
