Yes, I know it's been forever since I've posted, but it's been an insanely busy month!! But we shipped the robot for FIRST!!! :) :) I'd put a picture up, but the design is still semi-confidential until we publicly release some pictures, so it'll have to wait a few days! But I must say it's a pretty impressive design even if it is a little flimsy if hit the wrong way. It should be a fun season of competitions this year!!
Speaking of which, I'm missing the first 2 days of Detroit :( I'll be out in San Francisco again for the next two weeks so I won't be able to get out there until Saturday!! But my friend Susan and I are taking a little road trip out there at 4am, so it'll be all good! For those of you in chicago, come out for the regional at Northwester on the 26th or 27th of March!! It should be a good time, and we'll have had some practice in Detroit, so we should be pretty good by then!!
Other than FIRST, I have just been working a TON lately!! I've got a bunch of different projects that I'm working on and even had more goals than our little performance management system could handle for the year, so it looks like those problems of being bored at work won't be coming back any time soon!! And I just found out last week that I'm getting a promotion!!! So I'm super excited about that as well!!! :)
Oh!!! And I bought an iPod yesterday before heading over to the WildStang ship party at dan's. It is the coolest thing ever!! I got one of the mini ones and it's so great to go running with. It comes with this arm band that makes it really easy to change songs or adjust the volume while you're running. And of course it uses metadata and searching, so obviously I'm interested from a geeky point of view as well :) It was almost 60 degrees outside today so I got my first outdoor run of the year in which was so great! I really love evanston and being able to run along the lakefront with the city in the background and nothing but water to my left.
Well, that's about all that's new around here!! I'm off to San Francisco for another two weeks and will be visiting my aunt and cousins down in LA next weekend. So if any of you are there, you should let me know so we can hang out!! :)
