I did nothing. All I did was invite women to show up, among some other housekeeping items. I put together an expo. I hauled boxes of flyers and heavy equipment. I on the spot figured out how to set up pipe and drape. I did some arts and crafts. I recorded moments with my GoPro.…… Continue reading White and Pink
I went to this speaking thing, where the speaker talked about chasing your dreams. Maybe this dream thing is getting overrated, but it did remind me of a ridiculous, out-of-reach dream goal of mine. So out of reach and ridiculous that I honestly haven’t thought about it in over a year. But during her talk,…… Continue reading Renewed Dreamer

This is the first weekend with zero plans,…… Continue reading Hustle, hammock, repeat.
