Have you ever hit a wall while pursuing a goal? Was that the end of it all?
After 3 days on the Greyhound, I’m finally home! It may take a week or two to realize fully that there isn’t a truck waiting for me at a nearby truck stop and I really am not hauling another load anywhere.
It’s so nice to be here now.
I finally reached my limit yesterday…and it took a lot longer to get there than I would have guessed. I expect to be out of my truck and home by next weekend.
I’m going to miss my truck… as miserable as it’s been making me lately. Continue reading “Calling it Quits”
So today I discovered lorempixel.com, a service that provides random placeholder images. This is so cool! I was spending half my time looking for images to put in these practice websites…followed by too much time worrying about copyright laws.
I’m calling it done today. Anything I don’t get to by the end of the day will have to wait until I take the class for real.
I’ve been distracted all week by Team Treehouse. I managed to get to the top 10 in badges earned somehow – watching videos while waiting to get loaded/unloaded probably. And now I can’t stop defending my place. Good thing a new week will start soon and my short burst of fame will be over and it will be back to business instead of this crazy game-like addiction.
And one that’s not quite there yet… but getting close:
I’m not feeling that great about the week. The job is getting to me. And I’m not feeling so great health-wise either. I wish I was done with the truck and home already. The last few months/weeks of any job is hard I suppose. I’m feeling that “short-timers” thing pretty badly these days.
This one was maybe almost finished when my load was FINALLY ready at 3am…this? morning? Yeah, this morning. Yikes… you lose track of the days when they mix up your days and nights so bad.
The page went together pretty good until I hit that rule about 4’s and 9’s being one less than the next number instead of 4 of whatever unit they were in. After several tries I finally got it and then had to go drive and couldn’t test it until this evening! Continue reading “And another one…”
it’s a bad thing… not recommended.
Still trying to study on top of the job though, here’s the latest fun webpage:
The sun is shining. I finally got to sleep overnight instead of drive. Warm days, cool nights … and NO ALLERGIES!! Wish all my days could be like this.
I got some coding done last night and I’m feeling good about that too. I’ve heard you get endorphins from solving puzzles. It feels like THAT… kind of a high when everything falls into place and the page is finally working as it should.
I swear I’m getting more sleep, but I’m so tired! The last couple days were all-night drives and I got nothing else done.
Bad, bad, bad day… Continue reading “Good Night Coding”
