I apologize for the lack of posts lately, but I've been swamped with a big article assignment on top of my usual smaller projects.
Right now I'm working on finishing up the article. It's been a strange few days, full of late hours working and a lack of sleep. This is going to do a lot to help get me caught up after my slow January, so I can't complain too much — but it will be a huge relief when this article is done!
The new experience is where I happen to be working at the moment. Recently I discovered that a Starbucks near me is open 24/7, so when I knew I'd have to be up all night tonight working (and remembering how I couldn't stay up and fell asleep without finishing last night) I decided to come here to work.
It has been surprisingly noisy here, but my headphones took care of that easily enough. I'm also sitting back in a little alcove where there is a well-lit table and chairs for people with laptops. I've been the only one back here since shortly after my arrival, and a combination of the bright lights, the hard chairs, and the strong coffee have helped me stay alert.
Unfortunately I finally feel as though I'm finally beginning to fade — and so close to the end of the article, too! I'll head home soon (my earphones are starting to hurt my ears, anyway), and hopefully the transition will give me the boost I need to get through to the end of this article.
