Goodbye Portland : )

And that’s a wrap! Time really flies when you’re having fun and learning! Working with Ted up here in Portland has been an awesome experience for me and I’m going to really miss all of it!

I’ve learned a LOT about marketing during my stay here. I’ve learnt about testing and statistics.. I’ve seen first hand results, both Ted’s and my own, and I’ve been a part of creating those results. There really isn’t much that beats seeing things work with your own eyes.. That’s been absolutely invaluable for me and its something I’m going to carry with me for the rest of my life.

Basketball has also been a LOT of fun! Ted and I have played every chance we’ve had and not only has it kept my game in shape and got me away from the computer, its been a learning experience! Ted opened me up to a whole new style of play and got me to really think about my game.. its always odd when you take stuff you learn in marketing and apply it to other things in life.. “Ok, driving to the left obviously isn’t working, I’ll test a few to the right and throw in a shooting variable”.. Yeah, quite odd.. but it works! : )

Alright, with that.. I’m exhausted! Its almost 2 in the morning and I think its time for this crazy kid to get some sleep! Big day ahead of me as I head on over to the Airport and down to California!

Goodnight World! I may be away for a few days so you’ll have to do your best to live without me ;). Bye for now!
