What I'm Doing Now

Welcome to my now page. This is what I’m currently up to:

New House

My wife and I closed on our house at the end of April. We spent the following 2 months coordinating with contractors, cleaning, packing, moving, and renovating the house. It was an exhausting process but I feel that we are now starting to settle down and enjoy the new place.

SE Exam

I am working on articles about studying for the SE Exam. My blog post from 2017 is one of the most popular on this site. It’s been 5 years since that post and my writing has improved in that time. I want to flex that skill by providing more organized and concise information about the exam.

Health Revamp

I am taking a deep dive into my health habits.

I haven’t been to the gym or played much basketball since the pandemic. I feel unhealthy from the the lack of exercise and my current diet. It’s time to overhaul my health habits. I recently stumbled upon Peter Attia and David Sinclair. So my efforts are based in longevity over performance.

Here are some of the things I’m trying:

  • Time restricted fasting (16-8)
  • A more plant based diet
  • Zone 2 exercise
  • Yoga

Moved out of CeFi

CeFi, or centralized finance, looks to incorporate the benefits of cryptocurrency yields (DeFi) into a traditional banking system. The recent crash of Luna and market volatility has caused a few venture capital firms to go bankrupt, namely Three Arrows Capital. It also caused a handful of cryptocurrency banks to pause withdrawals such as Celsius and Voyager.

I was spooked by this news and decided to pull my money out of CeFi. The high interest rates were not worth the risk of having my assets frozen. I converted my stable coins to USD and withdrew it to my US savings account. And I transferred my BTC and ETH holdings to a Trezor.
