I've been having a hell of a time with sickness recently. The most recent symptom is abject exhaustion, where I'll be doing fine and then suddenly need to put my head down on something and not do anything for awhile. It's possible that it's mono, which would suck, though the timing involved if it was mono would be very strange.
Anyways. Could also be side-effects.
I've been trying to write again. I finished the second part of a fanfic I was working on -- thought it was great, read over it after a beta reading of another fic, now think it sucks. Need to go back and fix it. I've been writing whatever catches my attention at the time, though trying to give Familiar a shot before working on fanfiction. It's difficult because I've reached the part where I really just have to rip pieces out and change them wholesale, and I'm having to consider how I want to get certain things across.
Other than that, me being a programmer and all, I should start doing more stupid rote tasks using perl instead of doing them by hand.
Edit: I bow to my own programming ability. It took me less than ten minutes to construct a perl script to do what I wanted, without even looking at documentation. And I suck at perl. It takes longer to process the damn things by hand.
I am lacking in the virtue of Laziness. I don't even write energy saving programs for myself.
