This morning I woke up realizing that tonight would be my last night as a Miami resident. Friday night, trails will be blazed, anticipation will be increased, and rarely-eaten beef jerky may be bought at various convenience stores.
The worst thing is that there are 2 programs and 1 webpage I wanted to get finished before leaving, but is highly unlikely to happen (Hofstadter’s Law, anyone?) The webpage will be decently polished by tonight’s end, but not where I would like it to be, the one program for work is technically usable, but will be used by the public and is not properly polished, and the other program I’ve essentially been buying time for.
It’s not really such a final good-bye–I have to spend a few days per month in Miami anyway–but obviously life will be quite different.
For those of you who don’t click links:
Hofstadter’s Law: It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter’s law.
A (somewhat joking) rule of thumb introduced by Hofstadter for calculating an approximate time is to double the number and step up to the next higher units. For example, a job estimated at 1 hour can be accomplished in 2 days, while a 3-month project will take you 6 years.
