Work: 2 Weeks In

canThree cheers for the weekend! I’ve finished the second week of work. For the past two weeks, I’ve woken up at around 6 am, ate breakfast, and have gone to work for 7 am. At 3:30 pm, I leave work, get home, do some exercise, eat, shower, and eat some more. (more…)

Checkpoint

slippery-slope-3Once you get behind in something, it is just the beginning of a slippery slope. Take me, for instance. Spending hours late at night on a particularly challenging assignment meant that I slept through more than a few classes. I still need to catch up on those lectures, while keeping up with current material. And then there is that other assignment assigned to replace the one that was slaved over and completed only a few nights ago.
