The week has actually gotten off to a good start – the thing I’m testing right now is going very quickly and relatively smoothly, so it doesn’t look like I’ve got any 12 hour days on tap this week.
Still a bit deflated by this “opportunity” that is on the horizon. Younger me would have absolutely jumped at it, if not actively sought it out. Older and not nearly as ambitious me is not quite as excited. It’s going to pull focus from what I’m doing now (which I like), it deals with a module in the software I don’t work with much at all, and at the moment, it doesn’t look like there is any money for taking this on. Plus, it’s a fuckton of coordination with folks in the department overseas, which is really fucking hard.
But, I’ll figure out how to make the best of it.
