Life Is getting busy for me. In about two weeks my wife, Hilary, and I will be moving. In addition to that, I have an astronomy class that just finished and a discrete math class that starts on Monday. I also have a busy schedule when I'm at work.
This isn't the first time that I have found the pace of life picking up. I have found that when I get stressed out about having a lot on my plate, the best thing I can do is control what I can and try to not let the rest bother me. That means that I have been making schedules and lists for the upcoming move and taking things in stride when the don't work out like I want. For example, a townhouse that we were interested was pulled off the market the day that we were going to view it. Frustrating.
Two points that I always keep on my schedule though are reading and programming. Sometimes they overlap when I get especially busy. Currently, I'm reading Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie. It's a little outside my usual genre of hard sci-fi/space opera but I'm enjoying it so far. It's going to be a quick read.
As for programming, I'm still working on my bibliophilium site but slowly. I want to start correctly so that I don't get a few months in and wish I had done things differently. That involves researching implementations. Also, moving kind of eats into my programming time.
