going to party like it's 1922

We're nearly ready for launch!

I've been working at just the most exciting start up ever, 
and we're so close to going live.

At the moment, all I do is get up, work, go home, and repeat!

Once you've experienced the adrenaline rush of working in a start up, it's hard to work anywhere else, but my gosh, it's all consuming. It's also why the posting on here is likely to be slightly sporadic over the next few days.

In an effort to continue being a well rounded person, and to keep the promise I made to myself before I left my day job in the UK and came to California,
I've decided that I have to read at night.

Real books. Made out of paper.

Not even on a Kindle.

And stories.

No marketing materials or textbooks.

Having left the safety of my job in the UK, this is a time when I promised 
I'd read all those books I ever meant to.

So I'm three chapters into The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

I read it half a life time ago at school, and I don't remember the storyline so much as the vivid descriptions of that time.

So it's like starting from scratch and its so much fun at the end of a long day to climb into bed and curl up with the antics over at West Egg, 
in the summer of 1922.

When all this work is done, I'm going to throw a party to put Gatsby to shame.

Watch out, chandelier.
