京のキー Crunching

Crunching

I stumbled cheerily down the street at 1am this morning, shuffling my foot back into my shoe after a late-night trip to the public bath-house, and took a moment to appreciate much of what is great about my life. I was upbeat. Relaxed. Enthused. And I was on my way back to work, after a 30 minute break to get clean, and to bathe away the stresses of an ongoing long crunch-day.

Last night was actually quite tolerable - despite leaving work a good 15hrs after arriving, to 4 hrs of sleep before the alarm started it all over again. Now I just have to wonder... why?

My workload is no bigger than anyone else at the company's. Certainly, there's a huge amount of stress bubbling underneath everyone's jovial and friendly exterior, but the fact that it is shared between everyone makes it seem less, well, stressful. It seems we've relaxed a bit as a company, too; although we ramp up towards a huge crunch at the end of next month, we don't seem to have so many 4am finishes as we once did. Perhaps as I settle into my roles fully, and develop my skills, the tasks and thus the pressure have started to feel less overwhelming. Perhaps it's because I'm growing into the role that I no longer feel utter dread at a new midnight request, but start to think of how to solve it best. My main suspicion is that, because of Kieren and his boundless understanding, and because I am so comfortable living here, putting a few extra long days into a project that I could have only dreamed of, a few years ago, seems like a fair payment.

Or perhaps I'm just giving in. Hahah. Whatever the reason, I didn't hate this week's crunching as much as I used to hate it. The game is taking shape, and that counts for a lot. So I now head off to the sofa, with a duvet, to play some games before my body insists that it, finally, gets the rest I have denied it all week.
