Day 73 through 75

I flew to Los Gatos on Friday, to attend my brother's High School graduation. I'm super proud of him. We have a generally weird relationship given that I'm nine years older than him. He's just entering college, and I've been out of college for a few years. That being said, I love him to death. He's incredibly talented and way smarter than me (and also in way better shape, I need to get on that).

For graduation I got him some books, because he doesn't read enough and is uncultured swine.

  • Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
  • Fight Club
  • American Gods

I selected these because they are fantastic books, and I'm hoping he appreciates them. He's going to go work at a scout camp for the summer, so he'll have some time away from electronics to read and enjoy them.

On Saturday, in the morning, I put more work into giftionary.city. Then, I had lunch with @reed, I got to see his new house and we watched planes take off and land from SFO. In the evening I got a few folks from Simple Casual together at Zeitgeist and we talked late into the night about tech, SF, music and other stupid stuff.

On Sunday I ate too much. I had breakfast with @lewei and @dmpatierno, and then the three of us had lunch with @niket, @KreemN, @helloxander and @nndesai. In the evening my dad and I screamed at the TV as we watched the warriors game. Then I took a redeye back to NYC.

2011 was a tumultuous year for Nathaniel Welch. In 2010, I said that in 2011 I would graduate from college, travel Europe and move to a city. Seems like a lot for a year, right? Well I agree, but I was successfully pulled them off. On top of those three things, I also quit my job at iFixit, started working at Punchd, which then got acquired by Google. Insanity.

Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday! First week of the new batch, Summer 1, 2015. RC batches overlap, which I think is pretty cool. So the first six weeks, half of the people here were from Spring 1, 2015, and then for the second six weeks, half of the people here are from Summer 1, 2015. Yay change!
