My Week in Review

I am so tired. I've been on the road two weeks now, and I've finally been reunited with Kin. I really hate traveling without him. I delivered three talks; I've been at multiple events in multiple cities. I'm over it. I can't wait to get back to Hermosa tomorrow. Even though it's been a busy week, I don't really feel like I accomplished much -- that's a silly feeling because I know that my talks, at the very least, accomplished quite a bit. [...]

My Week in Review

And I'm off, on what I hope will be the end -- or almost of the end -- of my 2014 speaking and traveling. I gave a talk on Thursday and was on a panel today. I'm writing this up, sitting in Penn Station, waiting to go to DC where I give another keynote in the morning. Lots of stuff happened this week, and I feel like I forgot to make a note of all of it.

My Week in Review

What a crazy week. Crazy busy, sure. But also crazy thanks to the Gamergate folks landing on my front porch. Not literally. Thank god.

I'm still really unprepared to give any of the 5 talks I have scheduled. Shit. [...]

My Week in Review

Heads down this week, writing writing writing. I've got so many talks to deliver this month, and I'm more than a little nervous that I've bit off more than I can chew. I bought all the tickets and made all the hotel reservations for my upcoming speaking gigs. So I am committed to doing them now! Kin and I celebrated our fifth anniversary yesterday. It's amazing to think how much we've accomplished and done since being together! [...]

My Week in Review

This week had some real highs and lows. The lows: Sweden was cold and overcast, and Kin was sick. I'm tired of traveling, as it's getting in the way of the work I need to do. But I'm getting fuzzier about what exactly that work should be. I had a couple of major run-ins on social media with people that I'd considered colleagues that I now see resent me with a fire I hadn't anticipated. The highs: the ABBA Museum. [...]

My Week in Review

I've had several bitterly unproductive weeks in a row now. Correlation: the amount of harassment and threats that women in tech are experiencing. I'm writing this from Sweden, feeling absolutely shitty and jetlagged. So let's hope that with a bit more sleep and some coffee and food, I can pull it together and have a better week next week.
