Quote of the week: “Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.” Simone Weil.
Keeping up my streak of good weeks. Saw Recycled Percussion Monday, had some tough but really valuable conversations Tuesday, went to Adventuredome for the first time Wednesday, found a friend a cat sitter Thursday (thanks Nora!), saw a rather surprising number of bunnies in Vegas, flew out to Florida Friday (after going to the Olive Garden for the first time in a while), spent time with family and family friends, a surprisingly little amount of time actually on the beach, ate at Lambert’s for the first time (throwed rolls are a real thing) set a new foursquare record for most consecutive days at airports (one I don’t plan on breaking anytime soon), had at least part of a Father’s Day with the family, spent a good bit of time trying to work out the perplexities of Indian naming conventions for family members (I’m convinced there is no method to the madness), about the same amount of time telling the baby not to address me by any such salutation (which I’m sure worked really well), and a rather frustratingly long time getting my (real) new phone and personal finances back in order (I now have stuff to send to my retirement account which makes me feel way more like a responsible adult than I care to admit).
1) Blog consistently.
Ish. Might be getting more into the swing of things.
2) Get outdoors.
Went to the beach. Though did not spend too much time outdoors.
3) Continue to make my position evolve.
Wrapping up one responsibility. Taking on another one I’m excited about, but I need to do some .
4) Read more.
Finished a bunch of books including Predictably Irrational and Sidetracked. Working on The Future now.
5) Stay in touch with people better.
Talked to Ariana, Adelaide, and Amber. I need to add some variety in these calls…
6) Finish up my obligations in Chapel Hill.
7) Run the half or full marathon in Las Vegas this
I’ll be less distracted next week. I hope.
8) Get 7 hours of sleep a night.
Travel + company isn’t a good combo for this.
