I only stayed for the first half and had to miss Dinesh, but it was good to see Andy. I'd been following him on social media (and met him once or twice in person) since the whole business around him getting fired from the Portland State newspaper. But it was a great event and I was glad I went - it was sold out with 500 seats, and no trouble to speak of from the other side. (They had about 20 of their folks across the street, wearing black masks, yelling curses, and chanting unintelligible slogans.)
Anyway, I've felt energized ever since then. I made it through the week fine, and realized I had more energy than I thought. I realized that a lot of what I thought was being tired was just me telling myself that I should expect to feel tired. Once I changed that mindset, I found I could accomplish a lot more.
