I got some new stuff yesterday at work. The date we said we'd have it all done was August 6th, but the person who gave me the work said we'd like to have it done sooner. Like early next week for the first bit and sometime before August 6th for the second bit.
I just finished up the first bit. Feels nice to be significantly ahead of schedule. Let's see how I can do with the rest of it. I wonder if this will reflect well on me, or if no one will notice. I really do want to make a good impresison at work. It's probably more important to me than it should be. But, really, I feel that the stuff I do at work is among the stuff that I'm best at, so it's important to me to have other people see me as good at things I see myself as good at. Or something.
