I’m only 7 days away from hopping on a plane for the trip of a lifetime. At this point, I’m very ready to go. There are only a few minor things left to do:
- Buy a battery charger
- Format External Hard Drives
- Make guide for people to follow if something goes wrong at work
- Give Mom a key to my house so the mail doesn’t pile up
I’m super excited! I’m also a little depressed about leaving in the midst of some very tough times. I don’t know what kind of difference my presence would make, but it feels wrong to not be at work fighting with everyone. I hope my coworkers and employees understand this trip has been in the making for years and was paid for almost 2 years ago. It would be a nasty financial hit to not go, and probably something I would regret my entire life.
So everybody, you’ve got till November 5th to clean everything up without me. When I get back, I want to see my 101K back to a 401K, the dollar crushing all other currencies, credit unfrozen, and smiles back on everyone’s faces.
