Sabbatical Checklist

So on August 1st, I lost my job. Laid off. The upside is that I’ve already landed a replacement gig elsewhere and I’m excited about the opportunity. So here I am. Waiting for my start date on the 29th. So I guess this means I’m on sabbatical for a bit, and that I need to have a to-do list of shit to accomplish.  Thus (priorities in italics):


  • Finish Udemy course
  • Finish 3 sections in French (Duolingo)
  • Finish reading my Python book


  • ride Cayuna
    This was epic. Cuyuna‘s everything it’s cracked up to be. I need to get back there without the kids. Maybe this coming Saturday?
  • ride Eagan Bike Park
    Wow, what a shit hole. Pass.
  • ride Cannon Falls trail
  • MTB repairs/crank upgrade

Nerdy Shit:
