Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Thirty Nine

[Hellooooooo, GISH!! !]

The Annual GISH Hunt officially starts today and runs through the NEXT EIGHT DAYS!

Hold onto your hats.

But first the news:

A VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMP OF CREATIVITY, WEIRDNESS, KINDNESS & FUN

BECAUSE YOU’RE WEIRD & LIKE FUN & KINDNESS. PLUS, EVERY REGISTRATION PROVIDES 15 MEALS TO KIDS IN NEED!

GISH is a scavenger hunt like no other.  It’s an adventure filled with fun challenges to inspire your creativity, expand your horizons, help your community, & virtually (or physically when safe) connect you with people from all around the world. And you can play from anywhere — even in your own home!

Create, play, & get weird to tap into your creativity & make the world brighter as you compete to win an incredible Grand Prize!

GISH is the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt, a Guinness World Record-breaking experience designed to bring out the weird, creative, and adventurous sides of people while doing good. GISH combines creativity, art, mystery, adventure, puzzles, cosplay, out-of-the-box thinking, and kindness for a week unlike anything else as winners compete for a fabulous Grand Prize!

The week-long annual scavenger hunt is played by tens of thousands of people in over 100 countries worldwide!

I’ll admit I’m not as excited as I’ve been about this previously.

For a few reasons.

Two One-Day Events Already

Because of the turmoil of a pandemic and #BlackLivesMatter Misha, GISH, and crew ran two one day events and I did both. It’s not like it’s been an entire year since I last got to see my peeps and make amazing thingsess. That said, I’m still totally looking forward to seeing my peeps and making amazing thingsess ALL WEEK.

The Farmer Project

I’m enthusiastically progressing on The Farmer Project and I still want to make progress this week, too. To the point where it feels like GISH is the distraction. My INTENTION is to still follow my daily progress check ins, THEN do GISH when I normally would’ve worked. Cause this week I’m ON VACATION!! !

I Love My Job

I’ve just recently gotten into my groove at work and am leading a specific quarterly project and I REALLY want to be at work. That said, I don’t have a lot of control over the scheduling of GISH.

#DamnitMisha

Sure, though, my enthusiasm may not be the same as previous events, but I’m still quite excited to joyfully experiment, delightfully create, and play with glitter.

But, fair warning.

My posts may get REALLY WEIRD.

Like, weirder than usual.

Or maybe you won’t even notice a difference, but writing daily isn’t going to be my priority this week, so I have no idea what’s going to happen.

See you on the flip side.
