Gmorning Gmorning fellow humans! We have ourselves another Monday on our hands. I feel like this one came way too soon. Saturday I spent some time with some bros playing some sports followed by a nice barbecue kickin back a few drinks. Yesterday was mostly work followed by my Jones Soda post which you should check out if you haven’t ;) I finally made it onto the label of their green soda after I had thought they forgot or backed out.
I wanted to add a note before I add some links and video today. I think I’m going to stop making these Muddy Monday posts and start up a newsletter instead. I still plan on sending something out at the beginning of every week but I feel like a newsletter will be more appropriate for this type of content. I don’t know if I’ll start it this week or next week. Soon though, I’ll be getting rid of these posts and asking anybody who enjoyed them or who wants to keep in the loop to sign up for my weekly newsletter. So keep any eye out and make sure to sign up!
Onward to the links!
Everyone Says I’m Running Away – This is one of Nomadic Matt’s older posts but it still resonates with me. I’ve had multiple conversations of people asking what I’m running away from. Why do I need to travel and be away so much? Traveling keeps me sane. I want to have a life filled with grandpa stories. When I’m old, wrinkly and not traveling as much, I want to sit my grand kids on my lap and tell them a story of adventure, awe, and curiosity.
Travel Dates – This post definitely brings back some funny memories. Wandering Earl wrote this post about situations while traveling alone that lead to sometimes awkward ‘travel dates’ with somebody else on the road. There usually tends to be an awkward phase before it gets around to the date. Sometimes the entire date ends up being awkward anyway, this was his.
I think you’ll love the video this week. The title is The Drama Button… What happens when a red button is placed in a quiet town square with a sign that says push for drama? Push play, you’ll see… ;)
Well, that wraps up today’s Muddy Monday post. Keep an eye out for my new newsletter coming out and have a great rest of the week!
