Got back to my Udemy coursework.

Got the microsite for my wedding built.

Partnered up with a former coworker to start tackling freelance stuff together -- he'll handle design, I'll handle code. It'll rock.

I got so much done on Thursday than I was able to work only half day and take the other half chilling, talking with people and going to the gym. 😁

Wednesday was “Take your kid to work” day…so my son got to see what a real agency is all about.

Unfortunately, I also “won” cleaning up after a junior who’s idea of “the project is close to complete” means that he’s got at least 2 weeks of work left…two days before the deadline. So my son also got to see what real stress is all about.
