overtime

I had very good intentions to leave work today at 2pm... because I stayed so late on Monday night.

I'm on salary now, and have been told there are no blue ribbons for working overtime. So... I was going to leave early today and tomorrow. At least that was the plan.

I ended up leaving at 3pm instead.

Which means tomorrow I'll leave at 1pm to make it come out even.

Things that are hard to say and do:
* I won't eat lunch at my desk.
* I will leave after an 8 hour day, despite how much work I have yet to do.
* When the 40 hour week is over, I quit until Monday.

But I'm really trying to learn. And that's where I am right now.

Um...there may not be blue ribbons. And there may be excellent reasons to leave. God knows, having a life is something a lot of 'professionals' forget to do. But sometimes -- not often, but sometimes -- what you're doing is fascinating and captivating -- and then its okay to stay late. Once in a while.
