Had a great venting session with a friend last night, who sounded equally frazzled as me. It was a comfort to us both.
And then watched Bionic Woman and Southpark, both of which were lame, but it gave me an excuse to sit and sip tea.
Got a lot done today so that managed to push off the bad mood. I really do love feeling like I'm getting things done.
Finally got around to analyzing some old data and found that it was good.
Phew! Gotta love that.
Got some new data that will sit on a pile for a while until it can be analyzed, but it looks good enough that I'm pretty sure it will serve for what I needed.
Put in face time at one of the gigs I was supposed to attend (skipped the other in favor of doing actual experiments).
Check, face time.
Did not have lunch at all again today, was too busy, but dinner is soon.
Did not do everything I wanted to do today and will not finish it all tonight, but I am getting better at not stressing about leaving some things for the weekend, they can sit in the cold room and they should be okay.
Yay, for four degrees and slowing things down.
What's the rush, after all?
Was surprised though when somebody told me that Monday is a holiday. Am 99% certain everyone in my lab will be here plugging away as usual.
Can't quite bring myself to plan for the next few days yet. Maybe because plans for this week proved a bit overambitious - can only be in one place at a time, after all.
Week 2 and I do think the light box therapy is helping. I don't know if I'm really seasonally affected or just chronically starved for light, but it helps me wake up in the morning and I think I have more stamina, oddly enough, during the day. At least I don't crash in the afternoons like I used to. Which is pretty critical when you really need to be working at least 10 hours a day.
Here's hoping I can finish the bare minimum tonight without fucking anything up and go home before midnight.
Seriously though. Dinner, any minute now. Yay. I am starving.
