Spring Break – Shabbat/Sunday/Monday – Day 215/216/217
Posted on 7th March 2013
To my dismay Spring Break hasn’t exactly worked out to be the party I thought it might be. I had grand plans, to travel to Florida or Canada or DC or at worst NYC and Boston, however reality sought to intervene. As manager of the final project for CIS-121 I had the responsibility to ensure a project, complete with specifications, documentation, sample code and tests was available and ready for activation by the first Monday following break. This meant that for the first few days of break, my mind was still completely focused on the work ahead. Shabbat was reading through algorithms textbooks and papers, looking for suitable material. The night was writing a plan. Sunday was mostly coding, sleep, eating and more coding and, unfortunately Monday was much the same.
However, one upside of all of this is I’m free to set my own schedule and additionally, I have been taking breaks for nice meals and catching up occasionally with friends for a few hours. I watched a film ‘Date Night’ with some of the guys from Glee, went to a wine and cheese evening with the same, and, also saved a little time for myself to play piano.
