Three positive things, day eighteen

So, Saturday happened.

The first positive thing was watching the movie It Follows. It was surprisingly creepy and very well done for such a low budget movie. Definitely recommended, if you're into scary movies.

The second positive thing was discovering there's a huge Lego installation at a "children's" museum in Manchester - the rest of the gang went exploring and found it, so we'll have to go back again soon so I can see it too.

Three positive things, day sixteen

Today was a bit humdrum and certainly didn't live up to yesterday's excitement.

One positive thing was pulling my hair out wondering why something wasn't working correctly on a project that I was working, only to talk to a coworker and realized that no, the changes I thought were missing just hadn't been added in yet. In lay person's terms, think of it like I had looked at a bunch of decorated cakes but forgot that the cake *I* was doing hadn't been decorated yet. Duh. So yay, I wasn't going crazy ;-)

Three positive things, day thirteen

So today was the first day back to work after NYC Camp.

The first positive thing was sleep =) I got up a little early this morning to get everything ready for my day back to work, but was so exhausted after the weekend I went back to bed. What was rather wonderful was that my #awesomewife let me sleep in a bit, so I got an extra hour+ of sleep. And then at lunchtime I snook in another fifteen minute nap. After all that I was starting to feel normal again!

Three positive things, day twelve

After being in NYC for two days, it was time to go home.

The first positive thing was our luck with NYC traffic holding up and our drive home only taking 3 1/2 hours - no stops this time. We had some breakfast and were on the road by just after 8am, and made it home by a quarter to twelve. And I got to chat with my friend Matt for the whole drive. So lots of awesome there.

The second positive thing was Kian started doing the "Bob" part from Sandra Boynton's book "Fifteen Animals" to hilarious effect :-D I'll have to put together a video of it.

Three positive things, day eleven

This was my second day in NYC.

The first positive thing was seeing some of my coworkers and people I've gotten to know in the Drupal community over the past few years. Not being able to see your coworkers in person can definitely be a disadvantage of working from home, so it's good to take these opportunities to meet up with them.

Three positive things, day ten

This is a little late because, well, I was a little distracted by it being a pretty exhausting trip.

The first awesome thing was driving (with my friend and coworker Matt Goodwin - the family stayed home) to the UN office in NYC in 4 1/2 hours, including two stops. Yes, only four and half hours. The best case scenario was three hours, forty minutes, so to add two ~20 minute stops and still make it within that time was pretty incredible. Yes, we got up at 3am and were on the road by 4, all so that we could get to NYC for a meeting by 9:30. Needless to say, we made it.
