Today I rediscovered/re-affirmed what I had known deep down all along.... I love working under pressure.
Its hard on my senses and tries my patience, and I love to complain about it, but at the same time, I have found that this is when I do my best.
For instance I have been at work until after 3am just about every day this week, and on several days (including today) have to be back IN the office for a meeting by 9:30, which means waking up at 8:45 (less than 5 hours away :) ). This is the only part of it that really sucks (I dont do well at waking up early). I can go with little sleep. I am good at that, but something about waking up early is tough. If I just go to bed at 7, I can wake up by 10 or 11, but if I am in bed at 4, then getting up anytime before 10 is REALLY difficult at that point. I cant really explain it.
Well at work right now I can`t go into it, but things are really "intense", and I am managing a lot of things going on at the same time. It tears me apart at the seams sometimes, but for some reason I love it. It just motivates me to go back and do more. I WANTED to stay at work today when it was after 3. I forced myself to leave since I knew I had the 9:30 am meeting.
I would have EASILY worked through the night, but I will probably be up all night tomorrow night (you will find out soon why), so I really can`t do TWO all nighters in a row (although if you hunt through the archives using the search above, you might find where I have done this recently).
Well I really need to try and sleep now (although I am wired with adrenaline)so I can make it to the morning meeting (which I really need to be at).
