In response to, "Things are on fire? Hmm. Well, then," one of the guys I work with emailed me and offered to take things off my plate for me and pick up the slack.
I really appreciated it. He's a fantastic dude. But I wanted to explain that no, it's cool, the stuff I'm cutting is what's worth cutting, and what's left I have plenty of time for. Here's my reply to him -
Graciously appreciated and you're welcome to contribute, but I consider this project the "fueling up the airplanes" and "recruiting a corps of engineers" time - it's where I want to be spending time.
I've blown off a lot of bullshit. The hot water is off in my building, I haven't showered for a couple days, and it's gross. Oh well, I'll cold shower in a moment (I just exercised). My email hasn't been answered. Little bullshit isn't getting done...
On Jumping on Entrepreneurship
So, I've been neglecting this blog a little bit. I feel bad, but I've been quite busy. I left June 6th for my cross country trip, and since then I've been in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Bloomfield, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, New York, New York, Columbus, Ohio, Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Chicago, Illinois. Tomorrow I leave for Madison, Wisconsin.
Everyone I've stayed with so far has been awesome, and the people I've met have been awesomer. I haven't, however, had a lot of time. I have a to-do list that's about 37 entries long, and sadly updating my blog is not at the top... For each of the major jams I've been to, I've written a summary and edited together a 3-5 minute video. I've been working on several other really great projects too, and I'll be announcing or releasing those fairly shortly.
I have to go to bed now, I'm totally worn out from Chicago. But long story short: I apologize for not updating more, and I promise I'll be updating more often. Over the next few days I'll be posting links to the videos of the major jams here, so check back often!
If you want to follow my trip more closely, you can check out Where's Zac? on www.AmericanParkour.com. I'm posting my write ups and videos there for the whole Parkour community to see.
For now, the Philly video:
