Muli Ben-Yehuda's journal

I have been feeling elated and depressed in short cycles lately, depending on where things I have no control over are standing at any given point in time. Trying to break out of the circle is doable. A good first step would be to get off my ass and go to the gym.

I spent the weekend hacking and thought we achieved the next major milestone on the HW bringup. Turned out that my code had the world’s stupidest bug and we’re still not quite there yet (I was initializing the same PHB 8 times instead of initializing the 8 PHBs…). So depressing!

My todo list grows daily. I wish I could become a reclusive kung-fu fighting monk for a few months.


  1. Optimism
    I recently read “La fuerza del optimismo” by L. Rojas Marcos, a known spanish therapist working in NY. He basically says that when we feel things are not under our control we tend to feel depresed. There have even been experiments on mice showing evidence of this. I’d say that the best is try to give less importance to things out of our control.
    Good luck and take care. piotr

  2. Martial arts do actually help a lot. Specifically one or two things that I’ve heard my seneis[sp?] say at times, which I occasionally repeat to myself.
