Smoke of the Day #2201

This smoky creature was slinking between the early morning commuters near the bart station today, gazing up with golden eyes. Perhaps he lives at the station? Perhaps a train-troll feeds him each night.

One day of heavy work left – looking forward to it.

Gaze of the Day #2200

I got a lot of work done today, and came away from class a little frazzled, with bits of code still popping in my mind. Laurel met me a short way down the street, classy in her black and white, and it was lovely to see her there.

This has been so much fun. Two more days of heavy work – it’ll be a good haul.

Project of the Day #2199

We’re well into our final projects now, and I haven’t have time for much of anything except it. Here’s a glimpse of the app I’ve been building – still scrappy, but taking form.

When next week comes I will do my best to bring more words to these entries. For now, my keystrokes are all sinking into code.

Photo of the Day #2198

I finally had some time to spend with Laurel today – just a short breather, before getting back to work tomorrow. Even with a heavy project like this, it’s important to stop and relax with her a little.

I had dinner with the lab tonight, too – one last goodbye before Simon flies away. I hope I can keep in contact with them after all this is done, too.

Nothing insightful tonight, sadly – just tired, and glad to spend some time with people.

it’s a nervous tic motion

Devs of the Day #2197

Anna, John and Ryan came by today for a bit of a final-project code jam. With no TAs to help us over the weekend, I hoped that we could help each other through whatever puzzles we came up against. It’s likely that any productivity through collaboration was canceled out by our distracting each other, but it was worth it to have a night with them. By the end of it, as midnight rolled near, we were edging on hysterical, spouting nonsense about our bugs – good end-jam fun.

I haven’t seen Laurel enough lately, though, so hopefully I can make it up to her a little tomorrow.

no one can stop us now

Gobbler of the Day #2196

Brittany doodled this last night, and I caught it this morning as I was getting ready to go. I don’t think it means anything, exactly, but it made me laugh.

And I am so tired tonight.

Windows of the Day #2195

It’s getting to the point where I wake before the sky does. I love the dim windows in the morning, and how the light slowly grows.

Busy, busy – and too late tonight. On to make more good things tomorrow.
