but... I have to work tomorrow, too. So it's not quite as "freeing Friday" as a typical work week cubicle grunt Friday. They have given us permission to dress down for the remainder of the summer, so it's not even "jeans day" as jeans day is now an every day thing on our project. Except on Saturday and Sunday, when they have the A/C turned way down or even off, it's shorts and tank top day for me! (btw, my workplace does NOT allow working from home for this stuff. They did order me a fan.)
So... still randomizing thoughts... I was awake in the night last night. Too much coffee during the day yesterday? Or too much mental stimulation? This is the phase of coding, where I wake up with lines / patterns / approaches in my head... when the chatter of work invades my nights.
I do my best to erase the slate and go back to sleep, but it doesn't always work. I remember doing the better sleep challenge and know that even just keeping my eyes closed and "resting" is better than nothing. Still, I'm having a slow start morning.
That said, even in slow motion, the lunch/snack bag is packed.
The breakfast has been consumed. The coffee is being sipped from the Spark mug.
Reminders to self: drink that water, it's gonna be another hot one outside.
Go to recess... walking away for a few minutes gives the brain a chance to catch up to the typing fingers.
Enjoy your book... it too gives the subconscious brain time to catch up.
And take the time to evaluate and prioritize... there's only so much can be done in the time you have... just make sure what you are working on are the most important pieces!
And tomorrow the sun will rise, too. LIFE is good. Live it fully. Spark on!
