Part of the New Challenge
Today: coffee, big breakfast, trying to stay away from people, coworking space, $1 pizza, wild crowdedness, ritzy commercialism, the quest for Starbucks, sore muscles, financial district aimless wandering, high-class accommodations, tinder
This evening, I’m staying with the bright, young Jason, another Hackathon Hacker, who I learned dropped out of high school to work on his real estate startup. In his financial district apartment, I got to see him work (an allnighter) with 2 monitors and 5 windows open. This kid is going places.
Spending the afternoon walking around in Manhattan makes you hungry. Nothing quite fills the void like $1 pizza - a New York City staple. It was surprisingly delicious, and left me satisfied for quite a while. I can’t even imagine how good it would taste when drunk.
This is how I’m winding down on this lovely Sunday evening:
Very quick, very simple, very impactful, and very relevant to my current exploits.
To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.
Hans Christian Anderson
I promise, I did write 100 words today. However, it’s part of a larger piece that I’ll share later this week!
Again, basic blog stuff, but I added social icons to the top of my blog - learning about svg files in the process! I also changed up the font. (The code for this blog is always available on github).
