The day is ending, the battle’s won.
So now, to sleep, to rest.
I’ve won the day, the battle’s done.

The night ends with the dawn.

The dark of dream brings peaceful zen,
But also nervous angst.
For tomorrow’s just today again,
And again and again and again.

This starts out with me having to interview to get a job back at Infusionsoft. (Shout out to Scott Morrison)

1:15 — I am asked to stay at Infusionsoft for more than 2 years (I didn’t)

2:24 — I forget how English works

2:30 — I set up a standing desk WAY before it was cool

2:55 — I knock the coffee right off the counter — quite messy haha

6:00 — I am asked to change my last name (not allowed to be a Martineau any more)

7:45 — Clate shuts that madness right down

9:30 — I get connected with Micah Mitchell and ScoMo offers me more money to stay
