|DAY SIX – AUGUST 31ST, 2013
How are you feeling?
Good. Definitely more ups than downs since launching 30 Days. I’m nervous, though. We’re trying to be focused on what we need to do, recognizing that we don’t have infinite resources. But, biting off more than we can chew – even if there is potential in a direction – isn’t the way to go either. So it’ll need to be a balancing act over this next month. I just wish we had more of a financial cushion.
What did you do today?
I enjoyed what was awesome weather in the Bay Area. Felt more like the summers I know from growing up in the Midwest. (I miss hot and humid!) Also saw my alma mater, Northwestern, take on – and win in a great game – Cal at Berkeley. A great night, and a reminder how important it is to take breaks from your work.
Ran into a lot of old friends, had brief moments of nostalgia, and remembered how comforting the bubble of college can be. (Also enjoyed an awesome Bockwurst at a Berkeley institution (my first time there), Top Dog.. Ever been?)
**Side note: I just read Jess’ post (we write our individual posts before reading the other’s), and the coincidence of us both reflecting on college days was… just that, a coincidence. I got a kick out of it.
||DAY SIX – AUGUST 31ST, 2013
How are you feeling today?
It felt good to let go. To not look at my inbox (too much). I worked for a few hours in the early morning – when Mike was still asleep. Chatted with Erin about the project via text a few times during the day, but for the most part tried not to think about Dabble. It’s a long weekend – and I know I’ll be working a lot on Sunday & Monday. My brain needs a rest.
What did you do today?
I hung out with the chickens in the yard of our Airbnb in Ft. Collins. I ate a big ol’ New Orleans style breakfast. Watched a bike parade of 20,000 people in the Tour de Fat (notable sightings include a 4 person double decker bike, unicorn helmets & the full mario cart gang). I toured a few amazing breweries by bike and ate some tacos before falling asleep at approximately 9pm on a Saturday night. I love being old.
Odds & Ends
We went to a concert at CSU last night. I know everyone talks about college being the “most amazing” time in your life – but I’m SO glad I’m not in college anymore.
