At work, I have to give estimates for my time. How long will it take me to do such-and-such a project. Usually I do pretty well. Some parts take a little longer than my guess, other parts don't take as long as I thought -- it all tends to balance out. Maybe I'll have to work an hour of overtime. Shit happens.
Nothing's gone right on this one. Don't get me wrong; it's almost done. Well, maybe 90% done. But this is after 5 hours of extra work. And there's still more to go. It just seems like everything I do leads to another problem on this one.
Ah, I'm probably just having an unlucky streak. But it's annoying nonetheless.
