Man alive has my life continued to be hectic, with little relief in sight. In addition to all of the work that I have to accomplish (in the next two weeks) I also need to return the rental car (actually it’s already parked in the Hertz lot but their office wasn’t open yet so I walked to the office), drive (the Jackmobile) to Colony Square to get my annual eye exam (why didn’t I schedule it for tomorrow when I will already be there for my final German class this term?), drive (hopefully still the Jackmobile) to Peach Auto to settle my debts with them, and then return to work to attempt to get some shit done.
At some time before returning to work I will also eat lunch. This will be my only respite.
CocoaConf Atlanta 2013 >> CocoaConf Atlanta 2014
I hate to say it but last year’s CocoaConf Atlanta was much better:
- the organization was a lot better last year
- the speakers/sessions last year were more applicable to what I want to hear
- the food was better last year
- there was no Saturday night entertainment this year
- the Atlanta iOS community support was also much better last year
And for the third time in a row I did not win a single thing at the conference-ending book giveaway.
I will have to consider all of this before signing up again for next year’s conference — if they even hold one here again next year.
All’s Weird On The Homeward Front
I mentioned in a comment recently that the house next time mine has been rented. Though I’ve not spent much time in my house since acquiring new neighbors, all seems fine.
Last week I saw that the house across the street that was up for sale and even had a “SOLD” banner attached to it was back up for sale by the realtor. This morning I saw that the realtor’s sign is gone and that the house is now for sale by owner.
Either the real estate market is more fickle than I imagined or things on my street are just weird.
Holy Shit, It’s Already The 8th Of December?
I need to mail my Christmas Cards tomorrow along with the City of Atlanta paperwork that dissolves Sharpened Stone at their level. I really wanted to go somewhere to watch the Falcons v. Packers tonight, but because I have been unable to be efficient with my chores I might have to punish myself by staying at home; this would be double-punishment as I currently do not have a way to watch ESPN at the house.
