Hello world!

I gave my presentation today and I feel better than I have in weeks. Quite possibly months, even.

The big workshop started today, and so far it has all gone quite well. I gave my presentation just after lunch and basically brain-dumped at a room full of people for an hour. (I didn't have slides, I just had browser tabs for various bits of the project website.) I was worried that people would be either bored or overwhelmed, but I've received a lot of enthusiastic compliments, so I guess it worked. And most importantly, IT'S DONE! HOORAY!

Yesterday we had the PIs meeting, and although it was a bit stressful (admittedly, that could be in part because I was also multitasking three other threads for some of it), I think we made some good decisions, including a choice to restructure the 3-D data in a way that means I don't have to develop an entire new set of tools to deal with it!

Man. I really did not realize how much low-level background stress I've been living with until it went away.

It's probably just the fact that I've had two very full twelve-hour days in a row, but I feel like I've been away on a trip, and have now returned home. Hi! How are all of you? What have you been up to?

I wore my orange shirt today. I think it looked distinctive, but professional. Tomorrow, I'm not even going to care what I wear. The impression has been made.
