What I'm Doing Now

Confidence: certain

(This is a now page.)

I've decided to leave Ottawa, to focus full time on my Erdos Project. The idea is to travel around the world, sleeping on Haskeller's couches, inspiring them to bunk off work and program with me nonstop for a few days. Rinse and repeat for as long as I can handle sleeping on couches.

The last few days have been a flurry of Kijiji, Craigslist and Facebook selling. I've never used any of these services to buy anything, so I'm continually amazed at how thirsty people are for stuff. As someone who practices inbox zero, getting emails stresses me the fuck out. It's been a hard few days, but I've now gotten rid of almost everything I own. I'll only be taking one carry-on-sized suitcase. It looks small, but my god, having such a constraint really forces you to pare down to the necessities.

All of this is scary, but I feel more alive than I have in years. As far as strategies go, I think that moving towards feeling alive can't possibly be a bad one.

More when I know it.
