Had the opportunity to see Tynan speak at the Give Get Win Tour last night here at SXSW. He spoke about SETT, and what happened when he turned 30.
Video below, enjoy!
Great speech. Really enjoyed it. The point about the deep satisfaction that comes from immersing yourself in a project you care about (while sacrificing a lot in the adventure / social aspects of life) really resonated with me.
I try explaining to friends that, while from the outside, my life appears to be boring, I am more satisfied than ever.
By now I'm sure that all of you have read the UT tunnel story. When the story surfaced, Mark e-mailed me because he is doing a documentary on the UT tunnels. He wanted to interview me, which I was happy to do.
The interview finally happened today, and it was pretty cool. I basically just went over the same story that I talked about here, and then we chatted about the tunnels for a while. He told me a few really interesting things about them that he had learned, and showed me a picture of an old 1948 car that is in the tunnels! Pretty neat.
The documentary should be done by May, and will be playing at the Dobie theaters. I'm sure I'll go to the premiere screening, so maybe I will see some of you there. You know which hat to look for...
Desmond really wanted to nurse. Not only that, he wanted my full attention too. Or maybe he didn't like the story. Either way, he tried to sabotage Cat and the Hat with his foot.
(yes, he is nursing and trying to kick the book at the same time)
