I started out with a 5 minute meditation. I am covered with a protective shell of light and confidence today, in case you were wondering about why I am so awesome.
I also had a dream in which I visited the Trump house, which turned out to be this older Plano house with shag carpet, a shitty small kitchen and a sunken living room. They had a daughter, who was off the shaft brilliant. She was maybe 8 and was fluent in Cinese. She was painting a watercolor in the sunken living room, and I kept thinking she should talk to Gillian. I also saw a table with all of the notes people had sent him about the thigs they would like to see him do, including one. I had sent (not in real life but in my dream). I think this dream might have been caused by my late night chocolate chip cookie.
I also tackled Day four of my mini-workouts. Last week’s 15 minute leg excersises kicked my ass all weekend. Let’s see what this 10 minute abs does to that chocolate chip cookie I had last night!
Ok, so this was the first trip so there are a lot of kinks in the system. First off, I brought a bigger bag with my small bag in it, as well as a few other outfits as back ups. I had to decouple them when the weight came in at 52 lbs but was able to gate check my nearly empty smaller bag, so no big deal. I realized on the plane that I had not installed the gogo app to watch movies nor had I downloaded the full version of my first book on the Read Harder challenge, although I had a sample as was able to make a dent. I also was told by the front desk at the hotel that the office is not a 15 minute walk and that the grocery store is 10 minutes away, which should be fun in the (surprise!) planned rain for tomorrow. I spent most of the night all worked up about these issues and not prepping for my first day on the job, so I am going to call it now and say this first trip gets a “C.”

Today is the day I head out on my first of ~48 flights during the next 6 months. I have been prepping for this day since the moment I accepted the offer from Boston Beer Company, thinking about how I would travel, what I would do on the flight, where I would stay, and how I would make the most of this time of change.
