August in Utah

I’m writing you from a cozy coffee shop in Utah overlooking the mountains.  It goes without saying now, but my blog schedule is likely to continue to be sporadic.  I wish I could produce these without any effort, and even though the quality and level of writing appear that I’m not trying, it actually takes …

Utah

I am currently in Utah, about 30 minutes outside of Salt Lake City.  Coming from a heavy quarantine/initial stages of a sweaty summer in Puerto Rico, it feels like I’ve moved into the Ritz Carlton.  I’m residing in my friend Ari’s amazing childhood home, and it’s been a great few weeks.

I’m finally genuinely bored of procrastinating and waiting for the quarantine world to change before I make progress in my own life.  I did my new normal Monday workout last week of a few sets of handstand holds, pushups, and rubber band rows that is definitely better than nothing, but a fraction of the intensity …

Going to Medellin

As much as I talk about staying put and being content here in my little bubble of paradise, I end up booking trips eventually.  I’ve had a great period of productivity (although it was a randomly crappy month of trading results, but I have a new algorithm running now that is very promising) recently, but …
