Dear diary…

This week was amazing. I really enjoyed all the work I did. And this is the most fun part of starting a company! Everything is new and fresh, there’s so many interesting things to learn, so many new people to meet, no pressure – just being creative and enjoying myself discovering more about this field.

I am consciously going to enjoy this because once real work starts, it’s game time.

Take care everybody!
