A Spartan reality
Holy wow I am tired! I’m not sure whether to blame it on the recent time change, the incredibly busy week I had at the South by Southwest conference or some combination of both. All I know is I’m wandering through the days in a stupor and having bizarre dreams at night. While I feel a bit like the walking dead, I actually dreamed that Rick Grimes (a character on the show “Walking Dead”) told me I knew how to put together an outfit and patted my back before we jumped on a Ferris wheel to shoot zombies. At least my fashion choices are on point in my subconscious. I’m not the only one chasing Mr. Sandman. One of my coworkers said she has a new definition of tired – SXSW tired. Another said when she arrived home, she inexplicably woke up in her bed four hours later with a box of Cheez-Its. We went non-stop at the conference, learning as much as we could, getting inspired and planning how to use what knowledge we gained. Like all tough Spartans, we preserved through our exhaustion and faced that next day ready to get down to work. The conference was pretty amazing. Imagine thousands of innovators, creators, writers, photographers, designers, developers and more converging on one city to attend sessions to learn from leaders in their fields. It’s like the entire city of Austin, Texas was overflowing with possibility and extraordinary vision.View story photos
