I’ve been here in Seattle for a few days, participating in the MVP Global Summit. It just ended and I have about an hour break before a week full of internal Microsoft meetings commence. I am jet-lagged and tired. Meeting up with MVPs = fun. Meeting with internal Microsoft teams… well, not quite as fun (but there are exceptions).
Listening to a little music while traveling helps keep me sane. Back in the hotel room I’m streaming Death Cab for Cutie’s album “Narrow Stairs” while drinking hot tea. Old age, here I come.
(My favorite song on that album is “Your New Twin Sized Bed” – so delightfully melancholy)
I start feeling restless when I go on long trips. I feel like life is passing me by.
Minor pet peeve – when people say, “You’re so lucky you are going on a trip for work!” There is a vast difference between a work trip and a vacation.
Okay, time to close my eyes for a few minutes and listen to Death Cab.
