Self-Indulgent (and -Congratulatory) Work Update Post #2
|Those of you who follow the minutia of my working life (i.e., zero of you) no doubt remember that way back in May I mentioned that a piece of writing that I thought was due in Fall 2007 in fact turned out (when I actually looked at my contract) to be due in December 2006, which was unpleasant. What I said back then:|
This now leaves me with two projects due in October and one in December. Given that I'm changing jobs this fall, moving to a new city, and teaching new courses, I really need to get these three things done this summer.What actually happened: I got 1.5 of those three things done over the summer, finishing the first one in June (as you can see by my previous Self-Indulgent [but not yet -Congratulatory] Work Update Post), and then got halfway done on the next, when the semester started. Which was not good timing really, if you think about it.
Well, I can now report that I finished the third of those three things this past Friday, on time (barely), somehow managing to get the last 1.5 pieces done during the semester, which I really wanted to avoid. But didn't.
So if you heard a loud exhalation of breath on Friday, that was me.
