This is week number two of my mini retirement. It wasn’t easy at first, but I am learning to adjust. Actually, I think I could get used to this.
Yesterday I woke up around 8:30, read the WSJ and drank coffee until 9:00. Then I worked on a partnership tax return until 12:30. For a good chunk of time, I reached the “zone” while working – a highly focused state where I lose track of time and do my best work. I listened to Patsy Cline on a whim and discovered her music is amazing.
In the early afternoon I had lunch with a friend downtown and then a meeting nearby with my law firm client. At 4:30 I went to my new gym, Crunch in SOHO. I love that gym – it feels like a nightclub, the music is so loud. After lifting weights for twice as long as usual, I was headed for the locker room when a dance remix of Madonna’s “Hollywood” came on. I stayed for an 8 minute ab workout that has me feeling very sore today. Can’t wait to go back today!
In the evening I had dinner with my friend Chris, who will be my roommate at Duke next Fall. We schemed about bschool while drinking Coors Light and eating bbq.
Can’t wait for summer!!
