Ten Things 04.10.17

Ten things this Wednesday:


  1. I was waylaid with a migraine yesterday- the ones I’ve been getting the past few months haven’t been painful, but very overwhelming. They remind me so much of sense memories I had when I was a kid, when the world would expand and contract like a surrealist painting. I remember trying to tell my parents, and I was a SUPER WEIRD kid, so they just shrugged and moved on.
  2. Working on some things with Linked Data and non-western ontologies; have done SO MUCH READING on how linked data works. Now I feel like I can actually start the work?
  3.  Struggling with how to demonstrate work when so much of it is just thinking.
  4. Kind of amazed at how much emotional labor coworkers can demand. Makes me appreciate the good ones so much more.
  5. Balancing all the things is impossible.
  6. I’m really digging the feeling of crossing things off the to-do list. It’s delightful and worth it and everything I ever wanted. It’s nice to remember that despite everything else, your true self is inside somewhere.
  7. There is starting to be a fall-type feeling in the air and I’m really happy about it.
  8. We’re headed east in a few weeks, and the leaves better be OUT.
  9. Time blocking is the only thing that is making any of my life slightly possible.
  10. There’s a mouse in our house. Hopefully, as of today, it will be out.
