|Catching Up On Sleep
||[Mar. 26th, 2017|10:48 pm]
I'm finally done with overwork! I met the deadline for getting the data processing done week before last. (I was aiming for Wednesday the 15th and finished on Friday the 17th, but a colleague argued that anytime that week was good enough for a "mid-March" deadline, and I am perfectly willing to be persuaded on that front.) Then Monday & Tuesday of last week we had a big project meeting (for which I worked a good chunk of the weekend prepping a tutorial on git & GitHub), and now that that's done, things can get back to normal.|
I took the day off Wednesday and just, like, was tired. Went in very late on Thursday. Worked from home for two hours Friday and then visited Grandma in the afternoon. And I'm still two days ahead on my timecard.
Maybe after another week of sleeping in, I'll finally feel rested again.
I feel like I have a million things to catch up on since my last journal-type post, but really, it was just a lot of working late. We had D&D today, cleared the last level of the dungeon, and dinged 20th level. Woot! Last weekend Matt & Jason hosted a lovely St. Patrick's Day dinner party, whereat I ate the best corned beef I've ever had.
What else. Had to cancel Star Wars last Sunday because I had nowhere near enough mana; instead we went over to Karen & Thomas's and played a round of BaHotH with the Widow's Walk expansion. Had Kate & Mel & Nick over for Descent on the 11th.
Oh, and in the middle of the big push to get all that data stuff done, I took a three day seminar on regression analysis. That was pretty cool. I mean, the timing was terrible, but the seminar was really good and I learned a lot. Statistics doesn't fit easily into my brain using a mathematical equation formulation, but from a computational perspective, it's turning out to be a lot of fun. Who knew?
