Conferences are tiring and stressful. I don't really have anything to complain about compared to the people who actually have presentations to do, but i feel guilty about not knowing anything useful to present. So i decided to skip the last day of the second conference and try to get some useful stuff done at work.

I managed to move one half-carload of boxes to the new apartment over the weekend but otherwise have been too busy and tired to do anything else. Next week is going to be _lots_ of fun =P

I've also determined that i've gotten totally out of shape again. I noticed that one pair of pants was starting to get tight again, which caused me to check the scale and find that i'm back at 190 :( And i've also discovered that it now takes me 15-20 minutes to walk 0.8 miles which is way too slow, even if it did involve trying to get to the opposite corner of an intersection. Once everything is settled down again in about a month i need to start making time to go rollerblading again or something like that. Although if i just make sure to walk whenever going over to the other apartment complex or the nearby restaurants that may help too.
