I made it. I made the impossible deadline. I wrote the Test Cases, 94 of them in 30 days. All told, with a little help, 158 Test Cases were completed. That’s a freaking lot. That’s a lot of writing to be done. That’s a lot of things to test!
In case you were wondering, that’s amazing and unbelievable. Oh yea, and Insane!
The pressure was immense. I don’t know how I survived. Papa was a big part of my sanity and survival. I realize now that I’ve had focus blinders on so that I haven’t seen the rest of the world.
The weight of focus that’s been on my head has been released. I’m free. I celebrated by having a Starbucks coffee. I deserved it.
I didn’t even tell my bosses that I made it. I figure that since they’re watching the document like, all day. They look at it for updates 4 or 5 times in a day, so I figure that they’d know when it happened.
Was I wrong to do that? I don’t think so. They put so much pressure on me that I broke once & almost broke several other times. Why would I want to tell them? So I can get a heart felt “Thank You”?
Oh no, I don’t think so. I just want to be left alone. That’s what I told my boss on Monday when he scheduled a one on one meeting about my “Attitude Problem”. What could we do to resolve it, pray? I said this “Just leave me alone. Stop pressuring me, stop querying me, stop meeting with me. Just stop it. I’ll be fine if I’m just leave me alone.”
So, I’m just doing my work so that I can take a few deep breaths and move on and get the other stuff done. *Ahhhh*
I’m happy & at peace… Bejeweled here I come…
