It is amazing what a few replies and quantifiable results to your efforts can do to your moral. I’ve been working hard since my promotion and I felt like I was banging my head against a wall. No results, quietness and a general feeling of being ignored, left out of the real world. I started thinking I was doing something wrong. That I was not trying hard enough. I kept trying, but with a general feeling of uselessness.
And then it happened! A few email replies, a few articles, pending reviews, and people generally interested about what we, as a company, had to say. I am so genuinely happy right now I can hardly put it into words. And the result is I actually want to try harder, no matter what, as now I know what I want can be achieved.
In other news, I finally managed to install Heroes 5 (thank you Zu) and I play for about an hour every other day. This is food for one of my alternative natures (the warrior princess) 🙂
