Having fun

The food at this hotel is weird and not necessarily stomach friendly. But other than that, it's a lot of fun. I'm enjoying the chance to relax. There are some things that are better this year:
* Wireless access is better in public areas.
* Braille menus are up to date.
* Service is still excellent. People remember us from last year (is this a good thing?)
* Julio remembers a lot of frequent locations such as coffee, relief areas and bars (no, I don't drink).

I'll note that some things are not as good:
* The water in the hotel runs out or turns off randomly. I just barely got my hair washed, but no actual bath. I applied a liberal coating of deoterrant.
* Like I said, weird food.

In general, though, I'm enjoying this experience. It's been very very positive. I've created a big document of my own goals for myself. The trick is that they are very broad, and I'm not good at breaking them down into manageable chunks. But I think that in this case, "going with the flow" is a great idea. Goals are good, but the are a means to an end, which is a good, beneficial experience.

For those who wanted to know, I got a Motorola Q, and will run Mobile Speak on it. Okay, end of random entry.

    You might get the idea that I'm working on the issue of shame as part of my DBT. If you have that idea, you'd be right. Shame is a nasty issue. It's…
