Down: There are lots of changes within the team lately, and I was surprised to find my bonus check in the mail yesterday even though I haven't gotten my review yet. That made it sadly impersonal. On the other hand, I've been working more closely with a variety of people in different teams lately which I like, although I wish it was more IRL and less over email. And, I'm in meetings so much this week that I barely had time to get work done.
Up: Derrick and I are getting new routines. The waltz isn't half bad, and the quickstep we basically cobbled together ourselves by watching tons of YouTube videos and picking out all the moves we thought were the coolest. I think Ikaika thinks we're mad, but he's in full support of madness, which means we're good to go!
Down: Ravi is going to be out starting Sat through Wed at a conference in Vegas, which means I'll have lots of time to recover from Bay to Breakers on Sunday by sitting on my butt at home,
Up: reading a book.
Down: I've been fighting off a sickness ever since Tuesday, (Sahal!) but
Up: am feeling a lot better today and hopefully will be good for running on Sunday.
Down: Basically I think it all just comes down to the fact that I feel tired and scared of getting sick, plus lots of changes at work are stressing me out, man.
Up: I paid off my half of the car today; it feels incredibly good to know that after saving up for so long I finally was able to do that. I honestly think that until you have to work for real and understand all the things you can't do because there's not enough money, you don't understand the value of a car.
Up: WEEKEND! say no more.
