and on the 26th day, there was rest

26 days ago, I went to work. From then until today, I was either on 1st shift or 3rd shift every day. I feel like I never really left work, especially when my pager went off even when I was at home. I’m exhausted, but my first formal software test that I planned from the very start to the very end has finally finished. This is the culmination of 2 years of my work. I feel this strange since of relief and a burden being lifted from my shoulders. Now I just have to remember what it’s like to sit at my desk instead of in the lab on Monday.
