My last writing here was on the 7th of February. This has probably been the longest I've not written for since I started this challenge. I'm not particularly invested in the streak so I've chosen to take days off in the past. As long as I'm writing almost every day I'm achieving my goals.

This past week was tough to keep up. My day job sponsored a trip to the headquarters in Seoul. How could I refuse? But I was concerned about how it'd affect my still developing habit.

The flight was tough and I knew the chances of writing then would be unlikely. It took me five hours to get to New York, then a 17-hour layover, then a 14-hour flight to Seoul. I crashed within a few hours of checking in.

Now I'm so busy I don't know when I'll get time for everything else. What if I lose all the progress I've made in the past 2 months? What if it kills the momentum I feel?

Today I didn't have much of an idea to write about so I thought about skipping another day. But that could so easily turn into another day, tomorrow, and so on. So to not get on that slippery slope I decided I made the decision to write something, anything today.

Sometimes I have to take my own advice and quit trying to write anything profound and just write.

    yea... there are days when an idea just takes seed in an instant, and there are days....
