It is a fundamental axiom of stasia-hood that if left to my own scheduling devices, I would like to be as efficient as possible. That is, cram all the work (i.e. all the time I need to be in Portland) into a specific amount of time, and cram all the adventure into all the remaining time around that.
Especially because I do often have flexibility in when I work as long as I get the work done, it means that sometimes I totally artificially stress myself out. Though I could have a week to write an end-of-season report, say, if I can get it done in a day, that means I have the rest of the week to be free. And thus it is that I give myself totally self-imposed deadlines so I can maximize bike adventure time.
For the last few weeks, this blog has been the victim of my artificial deadlines: between the crammed-in work and crammed-in adventure, I haven’t been too keen on writing. But there are a bazillion things I keep meaning to write about (well, okay, at least a few things) and I promise I will get to them.
But for now, having met my self-imposed work deadline, I’m off for a week of bike travel, starting first in Eugene to see these two cuties:
I’ll be back in a week! Think me happy thoughts and tailwinds! :)
