It’s 20 days into the new quarter, and I’m woefully behind in the blogging challenge, but I’m feeling really good in general. I’ve finally updated my new / unadvertised technical blog with a post about overfitting. It’s a little difficult to write technical posts, sometimes I don’t know what level of understanding to cater to. I’m really excited about this coming quarter at work, looks like I have some really interesting projects lined up! My favorite is when work learning coincides with my for-fun learning.
Last week was rough. I had still been feeling fairly sick (today just a sore throat) and I broke out in a fever rash or something last Wednesday. Shanu wasn’t home until late every night because of Dreamforce, so we barely saw each other throughout the week. Some nights she’d come home and I’d already be in bed, other nights I’d come home late and she’d already be in bed. I had to wake up pretty early every day.
Friday night we went to Limon (Shanu’s first time!) and I ate a whole chicken. It was the start of everything feeling better We started Rush Hour 3 before bed but Shanu fell asleep within 10 minutes so we turned it off and were conked out really fast.
On Saturday morning we went to Lolo for breakfast, then tried (failed) to do work. Instead we drove over to the Sunset to get a backpack full of frozen dumplings, and spent the afternoon hanging out along Ocean Beach. It was so warm and nice out. I finally got the opportunity to try Trouble Coffee‘s toast — worth trying if you’re ever in those parts!
I’m really glad I was hopped up on sunshine because Sunday morning we discovered that someone had broken into my car:
…but nothing was gonna harsh my mellow, so Shanu and I got lunch at Mau and headed to Westfield Mall to find her a medium-thick jacket (she lost her previous jacket of 5+ years at the dentist’s office). We strolled along the Embarcadero afterwards and then caught a cab back to our parts. Dinner was a bi-rite salad and an acme baguette, then a relaxed evening of working / writing before bed.
This week is looking to be pretty OK work-wise, looking forward to working on my personal projects after work. Hopefully I stop feeling sick soon and get back on the exercise wagon.
