This Week in a Tiny List

It’s been a bit of an odd week so far (more on that below), and I completely forgot to write a blog last night. I’m writing this from my phone, so it might look a little strange. Anyway, here are a few tiny thoughts about the week.

  1. It’s getting colder. We haven’t seen snow yet beyond some light flurries, but while the week started off at a balmy almost-60° F, it’s been in the 30s since then. I don’t mind the cold, really, though it can make my commute rather unpleasant.
  2. I’m sick. Tuesday afternoon I left work early because I started feeling feverish (while I was inside, I felt like I was melting and freezing at the same time, and when I went outside where it actually was freezing, my body still felt like it was melting). Yesterday I stayed home and hung out on the couch for most of the day. I went to bed at 8 last night, fell asleep within 20 minutes (an extremely rare occurrence) and was out cold until just after 5 this morning. I’m feeling somewhat better (I’ll make it into work, at least), but I’m really looking forward to the weekend.
  3. In my downtime this week, I’ve been poking around the internet at various sites focused on computer-related training. I’ve brushed up on my html knowledge (which I hadn’t done in about ten years), learned a bit about JavaScript and jQuery, and even started watching some video lectures on C and C++. None of this relates directly to anything I’m doing right now, but it’s interesting, and I figure that a greater understanding of the inner workings of computer programming will help me better understand what’s happening on the user end. I forget sometimes how much I enjoy learning.
