Heading to Los Angeles Later this Month

Well, Santa Monica, actually. And it is a whirlwind trip. I’m flying out for work on Sunday, August 10, and then taking the 6 am flight back home on Wednesday morning, August 13. It’s my first work-related trip to L.A. since 2011. I used to go much more frequently, but I burned out on that kind of travel. A 5 hour flight across the country seems twice as long.

But, I always try to look for the silver lining. I’m attempting to finish up the first volume of Manchester’s biography of Winston Churchill before the flight, so that I can spend my 10 hours in the air making my way into the second volume of the biography.

As for my schedule in L.A., the roughly 48-hours that I’ll be in town are already booked solid, mostly with work-related stuff. On Sunday evening, at least, I’m having dinner with friends from high school that I don’t get to see very often.

I have a ton of day-job work leading up to the trip, and so my days of high productivity pulses courtesy of RescueTime will probably continue for a while. I’m guessing they will continue through mid-September. We’ll see.
