Pretty low key this week, feeling really wrung out. Friend’s birthday, and tried to go to the theatre with another friend but discovered that I had booked the tickets for the following day, so just went for a wonder and some sushi instead.
Submitted a talk to a conference, so we’ll see how that goes.
Exhausting. Feels a bit two steps forwards one step back at the moment… telling myself that is still progress. Wrote a lot of code this week, which is always nice. Hosted a work experience student for half a day.
Watching latest episodes of How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Currently watching The New Adventures of The Old Christine, which I’m not sure I like now I’ve hit season 2. She seemed much nicer and smarter in season 1.
Reading The Inheritance, which I’m not really getting into so far.
