Plod and poke

Overleaf under clouds

A picture of the Overleaf Lodge in Yachats, Oregon on an overcast day. I love the lighting effect, although it made the foreground just a little too dark and playing with brightness and contrast wasn't helping much (so this is entirely undoctored). But it's only just too dark; I wouldn't want the foreground to be clear.

I'm concluding that as exhausted as I thought I was, I possibly was even more exhausted. I'm also starting to understand why I was getting nothing done the last few weeks before vacation. Four days into vacation and I'm still sleeping over ten hours a day (although that's down from the eleven or twelve at the start). I'm also only slowly getting into the rhythm of working through projects.

This was a hell of a year. Now if I can just figure out what to change internally to help me handle these sorts of years better, since with a few exceptions the external causes are unlikely to change tremendously.

But, I have finished setting up log parsing for my personal domain, partly out of curiosity and partly so that I understand how awstats works so that I can do similar things for work. That took rather longer than the one hour my to-do list claimed it was going to take. I've also made reservations or started the process for my vacation in February, which always requires some pushing for me to actually make the reservations. (I love the vacation, but I hate traveling and I hate committing to spending money, both irrationally compared to how much actual problem either causes, so I tend to have to talk myself through it.) I also read some more and walked twice instead of only once today, which I've been wanting to do for a couple of days. All in all, not bad for a vacation day.

No more picture sorting today, and no more Lintian work. Maybe tomorrow I'll feel like making a push on Lintian, but I'm playing it by ear.
