It’s very much a daily grind at the moment. In the day job, it’s a constant stream of work to get the long-awaited migration/server upgrade ready to go in time (and having all of two programmers and one tester to upgrade and migrate three interlocked web applications plus all their ancillary services while maintaining availability and everything else is a long, long process. I think this has been going for about 4 years…).
In addition, I broke the cardinal rule of the workplace and managed to accidentally volunteer myself for a focus group that’s attempting to create a new set of monitoring and analytics. In my defense, I had no idea I was volunteering at the time. I just commented that it would be nice to be able to tell what parts of our software got the most use and how that related to what parts of our software had the most bugs reported against it. Next thing I know I’m in charge of the focus group to build it.
I am so out of my depth it ain’t funny. This is uber-introvert, world’s worst self-promoter, totally not a leader trying to run a freaking focus group. Yeah. Riiiiight. I do better with things where I’m working on my own, not coordinating or leading things. Ugh.
All of which means that I’m just not braining when I stop doing the day job. There may be braining happening towards the end of the weekends or on rare occasions if I get a spurt of extra energy during the week, but for the most part, ze brain, she iz ded.
A bit like the derpy Westley who’s gracing the featured image today, really.
