I haven't updated in quite awhile. So much for my Q3 OKRs. I'll try and write a post where I grade my progress so far at the end of August - wow, that's in a couple of days.
Work was insanely busy for the last month. I am working on a project with two other team members (my manager and one other colleague), and we are launching the first version of it in the next few weeks. We had a soft-launch internally where our biggest client is beta testing the product. The goal is to get everything running smoothly before the next big season of television starts to air. In case you are wondering, I work on the Video Ads team, and my project involves serving ads to cable set-top boxes.
I guess I didn't anticipate work being that crazy, although I knew that I had a ton of stuff to do. My OKR grades aren't going to be pretty... although I suppose there is still one month (1/3) left in the quarter.
Humphrey, Ed, and HeeHo are going to be visiting this coming weekend. I'm really looking forward to it - haven't seen those guys in awhile. Esp Ed and HeeHo. It feels like Hump lived here for about a month earlier this year, haha. Not too sure what we'll do yet, but will def try to make our way out to Flushing this time and eat some good Chinese food.
Work just started to get more chill about 2 weeks ago. I feel like I am finally able to catch my breath and get back on top of my daily routines. Started making some small progress with Ensemble.fm, and the good news is that I've been able to stay pretty active with working out and basketball so far this quarter.
I'm going to be visiting Chicago from 9/18 - 9/21. Mainly visiting Aditya, but my sister's husband's younger brother, Kevin, lives in Chicago as well, and I will try to meet up with him as well.
Esther and I are planning a trip to Guatemala during her Spring Break in March. I am going to visit Taiwan and Shanghai at the end of this year.
I really want to buy the rumored Retina Mac Book Air if it comes out later this year.
I'm tired now and need to wake up at 8:30am tomorrow to go to the gym.
