Today was something of a strange day. I am still feeling a bit under the weather, but I went to an interview with EX2 Adventures to see if I could start a side gig working on their races. Jim Harman runs the show there, and I already know it would be a great fit for me if they decided to take me on. I thought the interview went pretty well, but I’m always a poor judge of these things, if my past “real job” interviews are anything to go by. At any rate, I absolutely adore the EX2 races and would be honored if they decided to let me work for them.
After I got home from the interview, Evan had a basketball game, and his team earned their first tie of the year. They had previously not won any games, so they have definitely gotten a lot better as the season has gone on.
After we got home, I finished installing the backup camera on my car. Our replacement for the totaled Civic hybrid, the 2013 Hyundai Elantra, has been treating me well so far. But the rental car we had with a backup camera really spoiled me, so I decided to put one in the new car. I bought a Pioneer AppRadio4 stereo from Crutchfield, which added Apple CarPlay to my display. Then I ran some cables to the back of the car and added in a cheap-o Chinese backup camera. It is so freaking cool, I don’t even know how to describe the sense of accomplishment I got that I was able to install it all myself!
And then. And then. So many amazing citizens of this country of ours came out to our airports and told our President that we are a nation of immigrants, and that we stand behind our diversity as a country. It’s so amazing to see people just show up at the arrival terminals and welcome strangers to our country. I hope that we will emerge from this stronger than ever.
