I had a really good day today after a really long week. It’s important to just relax sometimes, even when you have all of New York City at your disposal. You don’t need to conquer the world every night, promise.

Today I set up a Glass Mirror API development environment, set up a Glass Android development environment, picked out a new pair of glasses, worked on a pitch deck, started planning a vacation to Vermont, and, most importantly, I caught up with three friends from home. New friends are great, but I really value interactions with old friends because they can remind you who you are, who you were, and where you come from. Talking to people outside of technology and getting out of the bubble is great as well. I think one of the keys to avoiding burnout is remembering what set you on fire in the first place.

I’m off to bed early, but happy, and will go back to trying to conquer the world tomorrow.
