## Advent of Code 2018 - Day 3

Published: 2018-12-03

Solving these problems has been more difficult than I originally imagined - these aren't your FizzBuzz-level problems; they're asking for a little bit more (especially the second halves). I got a little bit of a head start on day three, as I'm three hours behind the release of the problems, and that means I get to have some time before bed to think about them. This proved bad, as I was laying in bed thinking about solving things (which makes sleeping nigh impossible :D).

On this particular night/day, I had some issues with work (and I was on-call for my team at the time), so I got a second chance to look at them early in the morning (3am-ish local time). But, once I was up, I was up, so once the work problem subsided, I took a crack at getting the rest of the problem solved.

This is my first of these writeups to take place after-the-fact, so let me know if there's any issues with how it was covered here vs. the previous days.
