Shut Down: Summer Seasonal

Today was one of those days that makes you wanna lock yourself in the most remote bathroom in the farthest reaches of your office, rub your face against the cold steel stall wall for a while, pound your forehead slooowwwly a few times in frustration, and then just cry it out.

Cry. It. Out.

That might have happened, actually. I might have done that today. Did I?

Yep. I did.

If it could go wrong today, it did. But at this point, I don’t give a flying f#@%. Because a colleague wrote me right at the end of the day that “Things that are broken will work again, promise!! It means you are pushing lots of edges!”

And I like that (thank god someone could see civilization crumbling around me)

She also told me to drink lots of cocktails, which I’m CLEARLY gonna do.

BECAUSE ITS SUMMER SHUTDOWN. And I’m outta here now for ten days.

BYE, SUCKERS.

(Technically I’m working tomorrow but seriously, if you email me with a major catastrophe I will crumble your civilization…)

Old Man River

 

Let’s see… how do I express my love for the rivers of the Sierra Nevada? After spending this past weekend camping on the North Yuba’s lower elevations with a group of awesome people, I feel like I neeeed to.

Our favorite swimming hole on the Yuba; site of our weekend shenanigans, including some excellent (if not brisk!) whitewater tubing.
