For the past two and a half weeks, I’ve been recoding the website at work. A total overhaul of the backend so our users would have a better experience on the site (it loads faster, and there’s one new section, which I think is pretty cool looking.) It’s been time consuming, to say the least. And stressful. Oh, how stressful. With many of the sites, there is more than one person working on the code. And they know what they’re doing. When I took over in May, I came into this knowing that I didn’t know the code….so I’ve been learning as I went along.
I’ve worked so much that I barely leave my desk anymore. I don’t even really need to. There’s a fridge in my office, a microwave around the corner, and the bathroom is around two corners. And as long as I don’t drink much, I don’t even have to get up!
Add in my freelance projects and I have been one freaking busy girl. Chloe has figured out that the only time I’ll spend with her is when she’s in my lap, or sitting on my keyboard (she’s in my lap right now.) And exercise has been hard to come by the past two weeks (though I did drag myself downstairs tonight – I skipped ceramics – and did taebo.)
I’ve been having one major problem since Friday at work, and I figured it out tonight when I was watching an old re-run of “Cheers.” Who knew that show could help me out?
I find myself thinking in code now. DIV tags are killing me (three hours wasted working on a problem, and there was an extra div tag that shouldn’t have been there.) It’s getting annoying.
I’m hoping that things will settle down and quickly. I snapped in an email this evening. I don’t think some people realize just how difficult this has been for me, and some nasty comments were made….to which I replied in an even nastier tone. I received two apologies and nice emails in return.
So I may not have much to say this week. I haven’t started dreaming about code yet, but it could happen!
