I used to think my life was somewhat interesting, enough to blog about. Obviously that feeling has changed lately. But Myerson was here and reignited me a bit. As much as I hate feeding egos, I'll say I do find him really interesting. It was good to hang with him for an evening and show him some of Savannah. Thanks for stopping adam!
Adam wasn't too keen on my buddy Hoagie Rody Pony. As you can tell Hoagie is pretty crazy...
Anyway, enough about him.
So i went mt biking today, here in Savannah. Maybe you've read from me prior that mtb'ing here is pretty slim, pretty flat, pretty much not epic. I took Ken, my new roommate out today, and within 5 minutes we were back in the car, packed up heading to the hospital. What I learned: if you are riding a teeter totter thing made for mountain bikes, make sure you are riding well behind the first person, because that thing will swing up, nearly knock your teeth out and give you a cleft palette-like GIANT cut. Ken's still in the ER as I write this. I was riding first, and feel really bad because he got ripped up-but either of us knew it was a giant moving teeter totter thingy.
So class this quarter is quite interesting. Facilitating Creative Thinking, Business, and Professional Practices. Creative thinking is waaaay cool, and with a new visiting professor of psychology, who studied under Csikszentmihalyi-who termed 'flow', which is cool-because that term is something we cyclist feel and talk about, although in a slightly different context. Interesting to read up on flow anyway
Business class is great too-i've never had any exposure to business and I'm eating it up. Sometimes I dream about making enough money to pay off my student loans. The expense of SCAD already created post graduate anxiety. Luckily the world is on the verge of a newer system of thinking and working, that which will involve creative thinkers more so than the past.
Whatever my future looks like, it should involve Bend, Or and a lot of cycling.
