Today was my last day at UNAVCO
, but it's up and running. I'll comment more about it later.
As usual, my performance picked up this week due in part to a deadline. Since I report to my new job
at 8am on Monday, I realized I needed to reform my "get out of bed at 9:30" student ways. On Monday I set my alarm for 8 (1 hour earlier than usual) and got out from the blanket quicker than usual. Due to improperly reading the bus schedule and a two-minute-slow watch I missed the 205 by 30 seconds and so caught one the other direction to buy some snacks at Safeway. I somehow missed the next bus and then ended up on the version which doesn't stop right in front of my work. So I left 1.5 hours earlier, but only arrived 10 minutes earlier than usual (10:30).
On Tuesday I read the bus schedule correctly, set the alarm for 7:30, and got to work at 8:30. Same deal on Wednesday. Thursday I woke up at 7, got to work at 8. Today I woke at 7 but got here at 8:30 (but I'm leaving at 7:30!)
So deadlines helped, but so did being energized from being up earlier. And I think two extra hours of work per day probably helped too. :-)
