38 is the new 88- Part 2

It’s only Wednesday but so far this week has consisted of:

    • Me yelling at my phone about setting up Venmo. Why? Why can’t PayPal still be a thing? I already spent the time setting that up! And why does Venmo have a social feed? Why do I need to see that Sally gave money to Julie for a Kale Salad 🥗?
    • Me yelling out my window at the college kids dumping loads of trash in my trash bin.
    • Me falling down while trying to push said garbage can to dump out the trash. Apparently there was even a giphy made of this happening.

I have had some awesome wins this week. They were mostly work related where I don’t have to interact too much with the real world. And honestly, things can only go up from here right?

The plot looked relevant and interesting and I was hooked 2 sentences in. To be honest, I was sort of annoyed that I even liked this book due to my loathing of the author. Anyway, the point is, this book gave me a lot to think about regarding social media, privacy, and how easy it is to cross the line.

on April 6, 2017

Working for Automattic has provided me with some incredible opportunities. Since we are a fully distributed company, we make time once a year to meet as a team. The location varies each year. This time, our meetup location was Hong Kong! I’ve never been to Asia so I was beyond excited to experience it all. And, since I was already traveling that far, I decided to add on a few days to go to Tokyo with The Snowmads.
