02BB0: Modest Brainy Achievements

Thursday Chicken and Cabbage

 Metro Manila Community Quarantine - Day 936

I've been trying to hire someone to support my digital ad efforts for a while now, but it's hard to find someone who meets our particular requirements. In the meantime, I've been running a lot of ad campaigns on my own and it's been a lengthy learning experience. But it also means being able to work on all sorts of campaigns and try to figure out how to make each work. And that's a particularly nerdy kind of fun, but it's still something that really speaks to me.

I had another campaign to launch today and it took a lot less time than I had expected, which is a good thing. I also got to try out a new ad platform, which is always daunting and exciting. We had received some training on it previously, but it's always different once you actually have to create a campaign and go all hands-on. There's still more to it, I'm sure, but I got through campaign creation and things are running okay for now. Then the real fun will begin once we start optimizing and figuring out how to push things further.

Beyond that, things are wrapping up with the workweek ending. As much as I'm enjoying my work, that doesn't mean I'm not looking forward to taking a break.

Had a fun little Notion moment today. I had to pick up the contact lenses that I had ordered over the weekend and I opted to walk over while Tobie was cooking dinner. On the way back I had a second brain moment - deciding that it would be a good idea to note down the eye grade and the brand of contact lenses I've been using in recent years. These things you sorta know offhand, but to be safe I'd do things like hold onto the empty box of lenses until I could buy a replacement so that I wouldn't get the grade wrong. 

I actually managed to note it down while walking in a true quick-capture moment. I should classify the note properly later and see if I can work on better documenting a lot of these seemingly basic details like my blood type and other fun things. These are things that we all should know and we theoretically have a record of them somewhere, but we don't immediately know how to recall that information. And it doesn't need to be Notion that does this, but in my case I think this could work out.

Now I want to read some board game manuals before bed.
