Dear Diary

I had a long checklist of things to do, ending with fixing two bugs, before I could enjoy my weekend.

At about 10:30AM I fixed the first bug, and said to myself, "Wow, I am getting really good at finding and fixing subtle bugs." By 6:15PM, after having skipped lunch, and several times contemplated quitting programming altogether, I finally isolated the second bug and realized I would have to rewrite three pages of code to fix it.
