Getting to bed at a reasonable hour has not been possible for the past few days. A handful of big projects and new projects have eaten into the wee hours a couple of nights running.
2 AM Wednesday morning was Tuesday’s bedtime, and 3 AM today was when I finally put both my computer and my body to sleep for Wednesday’s night. Eeek.
I’m feeling the tiredness, but coding my little heart out on a semi-internal project that’s been wings-bound for a month or more. It’s centre stage today and although thanks to the past two nights I’m a bit weary of CSS and XTML (and a handful of .inc and .php files to tweak – I really must expand my knowledge more in that area) I still really enjoy the work. It’s lovely for me to realise that no matter how many cross-platform / cross-browser hiccups and snags I run into, the triumph I feel when the visuals on four different browsers match each other to near perfection is very much worth it – late nights and all. I’m fortunate to be working on several very unique projects and so I am rarely plagued by boredom creeping into the room.
(Besides, when the going gets boring, the bored go play PS2 for a little while to recuperate. Geek life is good.)
Time for an early lunch and a big coffee. There are many more lines to code today…
