I’ve averaged at least 70 hours a week over the course of January. I actually got home at about 12:30AM Tuesday morning, after getting into work at 8:20AM Monday. Things are OK, however I’m focused on finishing some deliverables for our team. We’ve run into random problems throughout the last couple of days, so there’s always something to debug. Work, overall, is going well. I’ve stepped up a bit, and am now coordinating efforts of multiple colleagues. I’m relying heavily on each of them to work independently, and deliver quality software on-time. So far, with one exception, that’s worked out well. I’m also relying on my management team to keep me moving in the right direction, as this is the first time I’m responsible for more than just my own individual contributions.
Although I’ve probably had dinner in my own house maybe once per week in the past week, management at work has been buying us dinner, and usually gives us at least one healthy option. Woo. Sort of.
If only I got overtime. This new position is certainly a “growth experience.”
