Yesterday was a cool day. Full story below, but tl;dr... keep expanding your comfort zone and keep supportive people around you. ๐Ÿ’œ
๐Ÿ“ท: @thequantumleap
So, I got an opportunity to emcee a gaming summit (I've never emceed any sort of conference before). I was riddled with anxiety the days before the event -- am I gonna screw up? Will I look dumb? Sound dumb? Forget lines? Could I recover from being embarrassed in front of a live audience? The event was in San Francisco so I had a chance to go see my parents beforehand; and found refuge in our conversations and Dad's home cooked meal. Between that, texting Peter, encouragement from Kat, Matt Raub's presence at the conference, and a well-timed text from Joven on the morning of... I did it! And I think I sort of crushed it. ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ˜Š Even this far in my life and career, I'm still finding the edges of my comfort zone. I imagine there's a thousand more and I'm excited to continue growing, exploring, and becoming the best version of myself. Like I said above, I hope you keep good people around you and experience moments of elation and joy. ๐Ÿ’œ
Also, this photo doesn't match the caption but now I have a row of hand-on-head photos ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐Ÿ’ก: Fun fact: onna-bugeisha were female warriors belonging to the Japanese nobility who engaged in battles alongside Samurai in feudal Japan!

Such wonderful things around you. What more is you lookin for? ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿš๐Ÿฆ€๐ŸŽต w/ @aboutpeter

So, it was #PirateNight on the #DisneyCruise. Since @aboutpeter and I were just in #Nassau and had dawned costumes, we had to pay homage to one of our favorite games, #AssassinsCreedIV: #BlackFlag. We slapped on hoods and ran around the boat ๐Ÿ˜›

I'd travel the universe with you, baby.
โ€ข#Nassau this week: It was awesome to see the efforts of marine education and #conservation organization, #BREEF. This is "Ocean Atlas," the world's largest underwater sculpture that not only provides a habitat for fish and #corals, but diverts people away from natural reefs which allows for its restoration. ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿš
โ€ขFrom climbing to #scuba to mundane errands around town, I'm grateful for a life partner I can not only trust but can share so many laughs and adventures with. Thank you, @aboutpeter ๐Ÿ’™
๐Ÿ“ท: huge thanks to our guide, Katie, for an amazing private dive and for taking this photo!

๐Ÿ’ก5 Coral Facts:
โ€ขCorals are not plants. They're animals!
โ€ขCorals rely on algae for food -- the algae gives #coral their color and live in their tissue
โ€ขStress from pollution and #climatechange causes the algae to leave the coral
โ€ขWithout the algae, the coral loses its major source of food and turns white (aka #coralbleaching)
โ€ขFish and other marine life rely on coral for feeding, spawning, protection. We rely on fish and other #marinelife for food and jobs. Protecting coral reefs means protecting the ecosystem that helps feed our world.
