Yesterday I had lunch with one of our bigwig VPs at work to congratulate me for a presentation I gave around the project I’m on. I’m guessing this is a good sign.
We’ve hit some big milestones in the project, and we’re getting ready to swing into a couple of new ones. Good times. We’re doing a couple of big presentations to our executive leadership this week as well.
I’m looking forward to the move more and more. It took me 22 minutes to get home today at 4:30. Ugh. That’s 22 Minutes to make it 5 miles. Although that is a door to door number which includes more than just driving time, it still is at least 10 minutes more than the new place.
I’m feeling pretty stressed out at the moment from the impending move and the workload. Most of that stress I know comes from not having a firm grasp on all the things I need to do for the projects I’m working on, and having them handed to me at the last minute, so I never know when something big is just around the corner. I’m going to try and get a better handle on that coming up here, and really focus on getting organized better, so I can spend my time more intelligently, and not spend my free time worrying about what’s coming up.
I also tend to have a lot of very small things to do, which I am terrible at dealing with. I tend to put them off because I know I can do them quickly, and I end up doing them right before they’re needed. Not a big deal really, unless something unexpected comes up around the same time, compromising my ability to do those things at the last minute. They also remain on my mind, and take up mental space. Not cool. I need to just bust little things out immediately.
The pictures I took of Doug’s daughter Lotee have slowly but surely crept their way up into my top 20 views, taking 4 of the 20 spots.
I really need to get out shooting this weekend.
