Good week/Bad Week

Ways to have a really crappy week:
  • Dramatically and on a large scale underestimate your taxes, because fellowship payments are exempt from withholdings and filing jointly puts you in a higher bracket
  • Get passed over for a job for which you are perfectly, ideally, unquestionably qualified
  • Receive ambiguous feedback upon the culmination of a six-plus-month project

Ways to make a really crappy week a little bit better:

  • Receive a great show in the mail. Thanks, Wayne!
  • New CPU in the ol' computer (compiles stuff like snap that!)
  • Really, really love your wife
