I started this project halfway through my internship after watching the TED talk about it.

  • Intern lunch at Google.
  • Redditing while my code compiles
  • Trialing out the gym
  • The boys in NZ
    • They gave me a personal Harlem Shake greeting. You can't see too well but I'm actually topless (except for a tie), wearing my Noogler hat, and sporting a leopardprint umbrella.

  • Family chill day before hitting the Sunday Session at the CBH.
    • This was the day that I wasn't able to get in on my NZ passport and got chatting to a young lass who was a fellow Hamiltonian - her boyfriend had been kicked out for being way too boozy. Eventually (after she'd yelled at the head of security for me) my uncle Alex talked our way into letting me in. When inside, I discovered the drunken boyfriend was none other than Luke Gorliki, whom I went to primary school with. Small ass world.
  • Dicko and Amy showing me the best burger in town
  • Kris playing his birthday present
  • Supervising the front yard project
  • Games night: Articulate.
    • It's amazing how your brain can fail under pressure. Kris tried to get me to guess "Stone".
    • Clue 1: "If I smoke weed, then I get...?" - "Wasted?" "Smashed?" "Blazed?" "Baked?"
    • Clue 2: "WHAT? No. Ok Ok. Like, a rock, but smaller?" - "Pebble?" "Boulder?"
