The Winding

It’s the end of the year, and most people I talk to are very excited about winding down for christmas and new years.

The first thought is that the problem for my brain is, once I take enough time off, and that might only be a couple of days, my brain starts forgetting things. This is bad, mostly, because when I come back to work, it’s a week or more to regain that ground.

The next thought is … when you have deadlines that don’t follow holiday patterns, you can’t really take holidays when everyone else does … and that’s cool. I aint got no gripes.

I guess that’s what it comes down to. After the fact, when the product is done, out, beta finished, and there aren’t massive heart-stopping bugs, a holiday will probably be well worth it.

To everyone who reads this blog … may your Christmas and New Years be awesome. And may you find true happiness, of the absolute kind. Which does exist. Absolute. Not relative. Ha ha.
