Back to school

It's been one month since the start of the academic year. My classes are going really well, and I've found myself with a lot of extra free time because I've begun experimenting with a polyphasic sleep schedule where I sleep 4.5 hours each night with two 20 minute naps at 6 hour intervals. I haven't felt this inspired in a long time!

Here are two major things I want to do this semester:
  1. Start a podcast where I invite someone who is affiliated with Harvard for a 30 minute conversational interview and put the recorded interview online. The first issue I want to interview people about are about class differences.
  2. Start a wellness campaign where I spread awareness about polyphasic and segmented sleep schedules and the power of naps. Ultimately, I want to set up safe nap spaces around the yard where people can pop in and take a 20 minute nap.
If I can do these two things this semester, then I will consider my semester a success. Then I can start tackling the other projects that I have on my list, which are mostly coding projects or club related.
