This week, I focused on getting on board at IBM. I'm happy to say that the process was very smooth, and I'm now deep in work doing things I love to do for a project that I believe in. How lucky is that? <grin> I love my work!
I'm also happy with my work-life balance. I've been able to do good work *and* enjoy a good home life as well. I don't feel that I'm losing out at all. This feels sustainable, and that's important. As I tweak parts of my day, I'll be able to free up more time and brainspace for personal projects.
I went to trapeze lessons last Tuesday. The class was fun. I think I'll move my trapeze lessons to Friday so that I can make my week a little more relaxed.
Richard Eriksson was in town, so I invited him over for tea and loaded him with little gifts for Quinn. It was nice to chat with him again. =) I also had tea with Driss Benzakour, braindumping a whole bunch of job search tips from my recent experience.
Goals for next week:
Random Emacs symbol: cdr - Function: Return the cdr of LIST. If arg is nil, return nil.
Mike Mattie has this awesome Emacs tip for Eshell: redirecting to buffers and Lisp symbols!
To overwrite buffer "foo":
ls > #
To append to buffer "foo":
ls >> #
To insert at point in buffer "foo":
ls >>> #
To redirect to a Lisp symbol:
I had no idea Emacs could do that. Cool!
