Holy fucking sweaty shit-balltastic … dudes this day FLLLEEEWWWWWW by. I get when people tell me that I have to figure out ways to manage my time. I have a lot a lot a lot of projects going on right now, and running this website in and of itself is a full time job. Between writing out posts, managing the content, managing the writers, handling the SEO and ORM – it’s a lot of S-H-I-T.
What people don’t understand though is that it’s a personal brand. You haavveeee to have all of these components, I just need to learn to delegate and also train people to come on board to help out. We’ve already gotten started in that department, but I’m just ready man … very very very ready.
That being said, I’m currently chillaxing at 30th Street Station here in Philly before I catch my bus to NYC where I am going to hang out, and finish editing Vidblogger Nation season 3. Traveling the day before the the deliverables are due was literally the dumbest thing ever – but I am trying, and fortunately I am sleeping in the airport anyway so might as well put that time to good use!! Whoop whoop!
Dudes, Ashley Hans (the chickadee I crashed with in Philly) is literally the most AMAZING person on the planet. She friggen gave me a care package for my airport sleeping …
I don’t want to open it yet since I have to get on the bus with it but the ENTIRE bag is FILLLEEEEDD to the brim with Doritos, various caffeine products, twizzlers, granola bars, water bottles – like for real, I want to marry this chick.
So fucking unbelievable. The hospitatlity was absurd, and her and her roomie Rachel now have room in my casa til death do us all part.
Here are some of my tips btw if you ever want to sleep in an airport. It’s not the greatest thing ever, but it gets the job done and as long as you are smart about it – you’re fine.
Oh! One thing I didn’t include though in the post was my little neck lanyard …
These things are the SHIT!!! I can fit my phone in it, and my ipod touch, along with my ID, debit card, cash, and pen for my journey. This one is made by some crowd named Travelon – but I got it from my grandmother back in the day. It is SEERRRIOUUUSSLLYYY the most important thing to travel with. You can put your boarding pass in it obvs too, so everything you need while traveling is right within reach. Sure it can look a bit dorky, but whatevs – I will own that shit!!! I’d rather be efficient than worry about what others are thinking of me. I can’t STANNNDDD having to rush around looking for things in my purse. I need everything to have its own little place.
Super super super important while traveling to conserve your energy.
Also too, if you’re a chick, don’t wear makeup while traveling vagabond style. Like right now for example I am sprawled out on the floor of the train station typing this up. I look pretty freaky I’m sure – but if I was wearing makeup and dressed to the nines, I’m sure dudes would prolly think it was hot. This is not a moment where I want to be hot!!! I want to fly below the radar, I don’t want people to notice me – and I certainly don’t want them to notice any equipment I might be traveling with.
Stay smart, stay safe, and stay awesome.
Rock hoodies, keep the headphone volume low so you’re alert, and don’t be afraid to after things man. I had HANNDDSS DOWNNN one of the greatest weekends ever. Between Ashley and Rachel and their amazing friends, and Steve being SO RAD in general – I’m humbled, man. So so so much love. So so so grateful.
Alrite off I go back to hustling.
