The Day I Almost Died

The Day I Almost Died

One million, seven hundred and fifty eight thousand, two hundred and forty yards. That’s how far we travelled. Eighty yards. That’s how far we had left. As per my last post, I was thoroughly enjoying my trip. In the past two months I have been through so much, and explored so many different places. So many new cities, so many new people. The story… But this is about something else. One of the most beautiful drives ever. It was a 1,000 mile drive from Austin, Texas all the way to Phoenix, Arizona. I’d been told by so many people during my journey that Arizona would be a beautiful drive ‘where god paints the sky’. It was something I was so excited for, and rightfully so. It was spectacular to say the least. Mountains, crazy desert land, rock formations of the likes I’d never seen, crazy open views and mini tornados everywhere. Not to mention the fact that I could see a storm in front of me and actually estimate how long it would be before I entered into it. At this point in the trip, my friends had flown over to join for me a two week road trip and we were 2/3 of the way through, heading to Phoenix before shooting up to Las Vegas the next morning. We had two cars between the seven of us; the 1995 Ford Mustang and their big red Dodge rental car. During a 14-hour drive you tend to switch it up a little, friends switch cars, we stop for food, switch again. It’s a good way to keep on your toes,...
Goodbye Minnesota: Champlin, Anoka, Nowthen, Minneapolis, Duluth, Two Harbors & St Cloud

Goodbye Minnesota: Champlin, Anoka, Nowthen, Minneapolis, Duluth, Two Harbors & St Cloud

*this is actually being posted two weeks late, sorry* So my first month is up and I’m leaving the State of Minnesota. Already, I’ve had a roller-coaster ride. Starting in Atlanta, Georgia with two of my buddies having an absolute blast… then making my way up to Minnesota to settle in and try to work and play at the same time. Hmmmm… where to start… let’s go with how I’m feeling… How I’m Feeling So Far Much like in my earlier post, I’m still feeling rather ambivalent. Really excited, a little nervous, really upbeat, kind of anxious, and I definitely still have the butterflies. When I’m really excited… It’s usually when I’m arriving at a new destination. I’ve jumped in the car, pointed at somewhere on the map – well, Google Maps, sorry old technology – and am on the way. That feeling of not knowing where I will stay, who I will meet or even what I’m going to do when I get there; it’s awesome. When I’m a little nervous… I’ve arrived at a new destination. I’ve done some exploring, I’ve checked out some bits and pieces and now I’m chilling out at a bar or something. It’s now when I’m thinking to myself, oh crap, where am I staying tonight? I’ve got a few hours to meet someone friendly or it’ll be an uncomfortable night… I’m happy to say, I’ve only had to sleep in the car once so far! When I’m really upbeat… I’ve now met some nice people or in some cases, just that one person who’s opened their mind and we’re deep in...

The Day I Decided To Change My Life

All I’m saying is, today is the day that I announce to myself, and to any other readers I may have that… …Today is the day I begin my journey, project133. At 11:33pm, 16th August 2012, I made this decision while reading SeanOgle.com – though it should be mentioned I’ve been following Tim Ferris for a long time. More to...

Right Casino Media Rock Tenerife

So my team and I were lucky enough to be invited out to Tenerife to meet someone we’d class a “top dog” within the Live Gaming industry. So we planned this out the best we could, we thought why spend money on tickets and not go and have a great holiday too? So we organised to arrive, have our meeting, then spend an extra 4 days chilling in the sun and partying on down at night – and oh we did that alright, we did indeed! This was booked late June and on the 12th July we jetted off to Tenerife to meet our new client; though, it was more of an informal meeting anyway. My favourite drink of the holiday – Black Magic cocktail. Onto the holiday It was simply, amazing. Not only was it a monumental moment for Right Casino Media as a whole being our first company holiday, but it was a bonding session of which we all needed. After all, though close friends, we’d be in our office day and night working painstakingly hard for the last 4 months – 6 website launches later, we do feel we deserved it. I would go through this day-to-day, but once the booze started to flow the days just merged together anyway. It was pretty much a case of: – 11am: Full English breakfast – 12pm: Chilling in and out of the pool/beach – 6pm: Nap time – 8pm: Wake up, freshen up! – 10pm: We’ve now eaten and begun drinking… – 6am: What the Hell Happened Last Night!? – 11am: Full English breakfast…and so on… Though, the...
