My summer so far

by Peter Rojas


I'm officially back in NYC after about eight weeks of living out of a suitcase. I did a lot of things while I was gone, but apparently updating my blog wasn't one of them. Over the past nine weeks I,

  • Lost my father.
  • Got married.
  • Skipped watching the 4th of July fireworks for the first time in recent memory.
  • Got ticketed for jaywalking.
  • Signed a bunch of bands I love to RCRD LBL (technically Elliot and Josh did this).
  • Helped cover E3 for Engadget and Joystiq.
  • Celebrated my 5th anniversary as a gadget blogger by liveblogging a Steve Jobs keynote.
  • Spent way too much time driving back and forth across the state of California and flying back and forth across the country.
  • Got mentioned in Rolling Stone.
  • Picked up and moved 15 times in 8 weeks.
  • Went to FOO Camp for the first time.
  • Had dinner with both Dave Winer and Jason Calacanis. But not at the same time.
  • Finally learned how to play Guitar Hero.
  • Broke my favorite pair of sunglasses.
  • Broke down and got on Facebook.
  • Failed to start using Twitter.
  • Came perilously close to replacing my beloved Dell X1 with a MacBook.
  • Finally realized that I'm closer to the end of my time in New York than the beginning.
