Things have been changing around the office. We’re at the beginning stages of our final push to clean up the data on our pivotal research trail. It’s both scary and exciting. Many feel that the results of this one will make or break the company. This isn’t top secret stuff. Everyone knows, it’s just not laid out this way in the press release.
So we all do what we can to make the best out of what we have. It will be weeks before we know if this thing that we have is any good and, from there, we’ll know if we will continue to push towards submission OR scury to update our resumes in preparation for a completely different turn of events: a hunt for a new job.
Today, my best work came to me mid-day. The demands of the day, ever-changing queries and such had me exhausted and starving. And still I worked…
It was nearly 2 pm when I finally pushed back my chair and headed out for a break and a new perspective on the tasks at hand.
In the past, it would be a lunchtime run that would do this for me but I was too tired for that. Instead, a cup of clam chowder at the nearby Whole Foods Market, pigeons hovered nearby for dropped goods, and a cool breeze would do.
This is the view from the table top. The result of my unlocking my iPhone to find the camera open and front-facing. I guess, if you were a fly sitting on that table, this might be how things looked to you. It’s not really all that exciting — just different. I think I’ll stick to being human: hardworking, tired, and hungry yet blessed in so many ways.
