I had kind of a rough day on Friday. It was the last day of class, and the final project was due at midnight. I had gotten very little sleep for the last several days. It was difficult to concentrate at work. I had planned to be in NYC for the weekend, and I was getting text messages from Paul Fenwick along the lines of "Aren't you here yet? Come play Ghostbusters with me!", and of course I desperately wanted to be there and couldn't. I felt like by trying to please everybody -- my instructor, my boss, my boyfriend, my international friends whom I get to see very rarely -- I ended up letting them all down.

I did as much as I could on the project, but it still wasn't working correctly by midnight. I turned it in, wearily packed a bag, and dragged myself to the bus terminal to board the 1:30 a.m. bus to NYC. I don't usually sleep very well on buses, but I slept like a rock, I was so exhausted. Then, having arrived in Manhattan at 7 a.m., I took the subway up to Alex oniugnip's place and proceeded to sleep for another several hours. When we finally got up and had brunch, I felt better than I had in days.

Then I checked my mail and discovered that we had a two-day extension on the project! I must not have been the only person whose ass it was kicking. I worked on it a little more and made some progress; then, we met up with Paul, Chris chrisamaphone, Stevie sstrickl, and Stevie's friend Tina and proceeded to walk the length of Manhattan with Paul and Chris. This was my second Manhattan-north-to-south walk, but the first that's ended with a three-hour diner experience involving matzoh ball soup and egg cream, as I'm now convinced all such walks should.

I spent most of the day debugging today, with breaks for bubble tea and falafel with Alex, but the tests all seem to be working as of a few minutes ago, and Valgrind corroborates. Hooray! Now we're going for a run, and after that we're headed to a potluck and a rooftop fireworks-watching with some folks Paul knows.
