Some people wake up and start their day dry. Others, myself included, like a cup of coffee to get the day going. Today wasn't one of the mornings I felt like getting started pre-dawn. I can feel the difference. This day is already kicking off slower. Let's get started.

The number of tabs I have open is already overwhelming. I do research into design and structure and know interesting people have interesting things to say. I have a minor commitment to #teamwriting here at 200wordsaday even after getting voted off #teamstreak ( was there a vote? ) So what is open in the other tabs?

I see several tabs from GoDaddy - I recently auctioned a domain I had purchased several years ago. A project I didn't have time or energy to focus on at least paid off in other ways. Not a big deal, a low four-figure amount. I'll use the proceeds to fund other projects. Facebook is open, though I usually close that pretty quickly. I can easily waste three hours there browsing all the fun family photos. Job research. The DeYoung Museum near my house is hiring a database administrator. I'm totally qualified for that role, so should probably apply. I can't think of a more beautiful commute -- and walkable nonetheless.

How does your day start?

    @brianball The only vote was yours when you stopped publishing for a day on 200WAD. But we'll leave the light on for you.

      @brandonwilson - thank you. No light required. I can do this with my eyes closed. It just doesn't mean that I always will.

    @brianball Wow, walking commute to De Young museum, sounds like a dream! It's like commuting via Le Pont des Arts in Paris :)

    So what was it to be, the GoDaddy?
