Day 341 – The year-long project will soon come to a close. Just one more month. I really cannot believe it’s been a year.
It sucks that I really fell down on my goal of writing every day, but as you can imagine, this election year has been very chaotic.
I’ve learned so much about business, marketing, fundraising, politics, marriage, friendships, and myself. It seems that everything is changing for me.
It has been a while since I told you what’s happening in my life, so here we go…
Donehue Direct is slammed up busy. We have people crammed onto couches and we are hiring new people every week to service our new clients. I don’t know if I’m making any money because every new client requires new employees. I’ll get that figured out sooner or later. I’m just pumped that we are doing amazing work and growing our brand.
The busy part of Elizabeth’s year is over. She works around the clock during primary season to raise money for SC legislative clients. Now she’s just chilling for the rest of the year.
I’ve probably told you this before, but when Elizabeth and I first met, she was a vegetarian. She has eaten meat for the past seven years- but after watching a couple documentaries, she has decided to become a vegan. Honestly, I wish I could too. Those same documentaries freaked me the hell out. I just love meat too much. However, I’ve gone about 75% vegan. I’m eating almost totally vegan at home but I rush to the burgers and steak when we are out and about. I say 75%, but I haven’t touched meat or dairy in the past three days. I gotta get on a burger tonight, maybe a hot dog.
Speaking of getting healthier, Elizabeth and I are now doing the Insanity workout. We just started our second month yesterday. HOLY CRAP! If you want to lose some pounds, get on this workout. You will burn more calories than you ever thought you could. Also, this circuit training puts your metabolism on crack. I’m ALWAYS hungry. Most surprising result is that I’m becoming much more flexible. It’s tough, but I love it. If you don’t mind sweating, get on it as soon as you can.
I’ve been traveling to San Francisco and New York City a whole lot lately. Exploring these two great cities has been a blast.
More locally, I found an amazing micro-brewery in North Charleston named Holy City Brewing. Check it out and support local South Carolina brew masters.
I just read an amazing book, Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonas Lehrer. This is a must read for any creative who oftentimes finds themselves unable to get into the zone. It’s already helped me.
I’m now finally reading Eric Ries’ The Lean Startup; so far, so good.
I have been trying to read The Bible in one year. That’s still going strong.
Elizabeth and I just finished watching the entire Friday Night Lights series. AMAZING!
I’m currently looking at taking two more international trips before the end of the year. We may go to Israel with the church, or to South America for the first time. I’m thinking Brazil. Let me know if you’ve been anywhere cool down there.
That pretty much sums up the last few weeks. I’m heading back to New York City. Hopefully I’ll find time to knock out a blog post from a local coffee shop.
Have a blessed day!
