Live a fortune cookie life...

At the end of the day, I didn't think I could be quite so tired.

I worked from 3 am to 6 am Friday morning. Just before that, I was visiting Tony and giving a send off to the apartment, before he leaves for BD.

Things spiraled up and down work wise and the thing I needed to complete took a bit longer than anticipated. Falling asleep at 7 am isn't too out of the ordinary, but it really sucks when you have to wake up at 9 am for a 10:15 meeting.

I worked at the office for about 5:30 hours or so, which was nice, since I ended up banking about 9 hours total today.

Last week was spent entirely in LA, at E3. Last weekend was spent with some of my closest friends building the deck for our place in Strawberry.

And that's that.

There will be pictures. There will be details and there will be a lot more.

But for now, there will be a good amount of deep sleep, because I've earned it and that's what weekends are for.

Things:
Listen to Sufjan Stevens
Trips to Seattle are fun. Better when the company pays.
Trips to LA can be great fun too, especially if you get to play new consoles. (Wii + PS3.)
Listen to Damien Rice
Do things you enjoy and things that further you along your little path of happiness. Or something.
Live a fortune cookie life, really.
Recognize the wonderful benefits of friends who rock.
Listen to Jamie Cullum.
Observing Jupiter and four of its moons is something.
Strawberry has a great, great deal of potential.
Business is getting better. Perhaps, soon, it'll explode in a mess of awesomeness.
There are still things some people don't know about some things... about me. Despite my ubiquitously open nature.
Eat well. Good food yields a happy soul.
Travel more. Don't let small things like money keep you.
Meet as many people as you can. Be nice to as many that deserve it.
Eat hotel room service. $35 for a 12" pizza and dozen wings and two 8 oz. cokes is surprisingly fulfilling. Or maybe that's just because it was in Seattle.
Surround yourself with people who are brilliant and passionate. These things are symbiotic and cyclical and amazingly contagious.
Create something, at least every once in awhile.
Don't forget to write about your life. You'll forget little things along the way, but you don't want to forget the bigger ones.
Remember that friendships, relationships and everything else in life is very fluid. Things can wax and wane and ebb and flow, but that's just fine. You're generally closer to equilibrium than you think.
Drive somewhere late at night. Marvel at the darkness, visualize yourself in any number of ways, breathe in deep, remember what makes you happy.
Again, live a fortune cookie life. But don't try too hard to make that happen. (Lest the cookie crumble...)
