The summer has been great. I made way more money than I spent, I’ve traveled probably more than ever, and I even have an extra month of summer left. Since I am studying in the UK next year, I gained about 40 days extra of summer.
A quick recap of my summer: Finals ended in early May. Until May 25th or so, I stayed at my house in Golden and worked on affiliate marketing and played ice hockey. In early June, I went to Albuquerque, NM for a wedding. In late June I went to Dallas , TX for another wedding. During this time my affiliate marketing went quite well 😉 (we’ll leave it at that). In early July, I attempted to climb Crestone Peak from the town of Crestone (~6,000 ft ascent). Later in July, I stayed in Alamosa, sand boarded at the Great Sand Dunes, and went fishing. In late July, I went back to my house in Golden, went to the Aurora Summer Rubik’s Competition (which I won 4 events, including the 3×3), and then in the last days of July moved out of my house. In addition to late July, I climbed Grays Peak and Torrey’s Peak (both 14,000+ feet) in the same day. On July 30th, my family and I celebrated my brothers birthday by going to a Rod Stewart concert in Denver, CO. In early August, I stayed in Alamosa, went to the Dunes again, and went fishing again. In mid August, I flew to San Fransisco, CA for US Nationals Rubik’s Competition. I got back on the 17th, and then last weekend went camping near Leadville, CO. On Saturday, I climbed Mount Elbert – the tallest mountain in Colorado and the second tallest in the lower 48 states. I did a cube solve at the top, you can see the video below:
So, another month left. I still have a lot to do. In mid September, I’ll be flying to Manchester, UK and will start school about 2 weeks later. And then about 2 weeks into school, I will be flying to Germany for the 2009 Rubik’s Cube World Championship. It should be a good time.
Here’s to a great summer, and much, much more ahead!
