My face :}

There’s “tired”, and then there’s “tired :)” (with a smile).  Maybe :} is a better emoticon as it sorta looks like the image to the left.

I caught myself saying that a few times today when people asked how I was doing.  I think a better word might be “drained” – it describes more accurately the feeling of leaving everything on the field.  This morning, I felt drained when I swam laps in the pool, but I felt good after because I knew I was doing something healthy.  Similarly, today, even though I coded until 10:00pm, I felt drained, but I was happy to do it.

This should be contrasted with getting home from a job you’re not motivated to do, where you come home “tired :(“.  Tired of work, tired of anything related to work, tired of hearing the name of a colleague ’cause it reminds you of work…  Tired with a smile is something I’ll now try to remember to strive for on a daily basis.

Here’s a way to judge my day.

def how_did_day_go(date)

if energy.at_time(7:00am).energy < energy.at_time(10:00pm) && smile.at_time(always) == big

    puts “Good day!”

else

    puts “Um.  What happend David?”

end

how_did_day_go(Day1)

I believe today’s output will be “Good day!”

Note: code has been simplified for easy reading and will not run in IRB :}
