A Sunday Story: 2011-12-11

This past week left me emotionally drained, with the excitement of signing on for my new job and putting my notice in at Flickr. I’ve started to say a few farewells at the office and each one leaves me in a slightly altered state. On top of that, I’ve been fighting the office flu. So this weekend was mostly a collapse.

On Saturday, Meghan and I biked out to Outerlands with Phil Dokas and Traci and had a nice brunch and then went on towards the beach. Traci’s bike got a flat at some point, at which we parted ways.

On Sunday, I got out my sketchbook and started to working through a few exercises in Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to be working on something where my efforts would come to naught, so I poked at my yearbook a bit, formatting a few of the pages.

At night, we joined Trevor and Camille at Nopalito where we enjoyed hearing about their Disneyland trip and discussing Meghan’s book club.

I’ve already started mentally preparing for next week. It’s an odd feeling when you know your days at work are numbered and you start tallying through the things that you’re going to make your best effort to accomplish. The next week is going to fly by and I need to hunker down and crank.
