This has been a whirlwind of a year. I had my first kid, my mom moved in to help Mark and I through the Techstars session in Boulder, I was awarded the Managing Director role there (yay! Congrats to me!), Mark and I are working on a biz plan, and we’re finishing our basement. As I look back on it, I had zero time to do anything. Showering was sometimes a chore (sorry for those sitting near me!).
I’m sitting here catching up on my reading in an extremely rare hour alone – specifically I’m catching up on Brad Feld’s and David Cohen’s blog. I work closely with David, with Brad at a distance, and they are probably the two busiest people I know. I’m thoroughly impressed with the quality and depth of the writing on their blogs given their schedules. It’s shameful to me and downright inspiring. I’m making a commitment here to work better at getting in a writing rhythm.
Although I must admit, there is a part of me that likes anonymity. A few weeks ago, a stranger wished me happy birthday on the street. We’re probably connected somehow on Plaxo or LinkedIn, or maybe he saw the tweets wishing me a happy birthday, but it still creeped me out. (Stranger – not that YOU creeped me out, just that someone I don’t recognize can find out intimate information about me). I guess birthdays aren’t intimate anymore.
Regardless, I’ll try harder. Okay, I’ll do. Thanks Yoda.
