On My Tippy Toes

Early morning again today at work - yesterday was definitely not a good day for me. Yesterday was supposed to be a sort of career milestone for me - something I had worked on by myself (although the system was already existing) was going live. I came to work and was met with so many issues, that I just got overwhelmed. Barely had any lunch. Did not even step out of my cubicle for so many hours just to get the application to work. Whew!

So today I decided to come in early to test the fixes I had made and voila! the application works! I felt so much lighter, and I could breathe easier, that I allowed myself a few minutes to just sit back and relax. This feels good now.

To relieve my stress, I had a pretty decent climbing session last night. Marc and I have decided that we would set specific goals for each day at the gym, and last night we had these goals:

  • 10 routes

  • a couple of boulder problems

  • a couple of tries on the campus board

  • at least three pull-ups


Marc did pretty well, although we both got so tired towards the end that we couldn't even do the climbs properly anymore. Me? Well, I choked on the pull-ups. I can lower myself off of the bar, but I couldn't for the life of me pull myself up past my chin, so Marc had to help me up. Hopefully this new program we've set for ourselves will make me stronger. I'm very happy though that I was able to do Tad's newest route - a 5.11a/b. That felt great.

So anyway, today is definitely a better day. I'm no longer as stressed out, and I can be more relaxed with my work. There's still a lot to do, but at least some of the pressure is off for now.
