Great quote found via Scott Berkun.
When asked what surprised him most about humanity, he said:
‘Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.’
Attributed to the Dalai Lama, though that’s often disputed.
It’s not as cool as finding 57 geocaches, but I did my WordPress 5K with Brittany today. We walked a total of 3.2 miles on a trail near our house called Brust Park. Along the way we saw a bunch of turtles basking in the sun, the Cuyahoga river, and a lot of friendly faces. The weather also made it a great day for a walk.
Some images from our walk
Big news! I got my second tattoo today. My first was the “Code is Poetry” tattoo in the picture below, which I got on my 20th birthday.
The new tattoo is a tiger lily that becomes pixelated/digitalized. I thought it served as a nice graphical representation of the “Code is Poetry” saying. Tiger lilies are also supposed to represent mercy, compassion, kindness and unconditional love. Plus I think it looks really cool.
P.S: I totally stole the title of this post from my friend and team mate Hugo.
We drove twelve hours from Kent to Hilton Head Insland. I had a home cooked meal of Chilli and cornbread and angel foodcake for dessert.
After that was a walk to the beach where I saw two jelly fish.
It’s great here
Quiche, casserole, Swedish pancakes, and fruit salad.
