I moved into my new apartment in Toronto on December 28. Now it's May. 4 full months and I've been tracking my output, productivity, and expenses.

Pretty interesting how I spent $1500 (excluding rent) every month in Feb/March/April give or take $50. This is too high though considering I'm living off Canadian pandemic government money.

But I must thank Mr. Trudeau for funding the development of my startup :).

In 4 months I have written maybe over 10,000 of lines of code and talked to probably under 10 people about my app.

The people I talked to from Reddit have been very very useless.

The best feedback I got from my app was from people I talked to on Discord.

My plan to amp up my talking to users is to use Twitter and Discord more probably.

I'll search for keywords like "gumroad" and "website portfolio" and "graphic design portfolio" and "personal website" and things like that and build a website for those people and pitch my app to them by showing them an example of what it can do.

While this method is much more effortful to do than spamming with copywriting bs, my goal is to get results, not rack up my cold message sending count. Putting in the effort up front is key if your goal is to get results.

I haven't started coding yet today. Last week was my most productive week this year, and I had a flawless diet starting on Monday. I would love to eat a pizza but it's simply never worth it, especially as often as 1+ times a week.

Not much has changed though, still working on features. Feeling very uninterested in writing code today. Still many hours left in the day though...
