Tomorrow morning at 6:15am I will be flying off to sunny Varadero for 7 days of beach, rum, and general gallivanting. I'm excited!
I'm also excited to finally start working on the CCIE when I return. To think I have 7 days of freedom left before the rest of my year is nothing more than conf t after conf t. I'm certainly looking forward to it but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't intimidated. The CCIE has for so long been something that "the guys that really know what they're doing" possess and something that I have to work toward that to finally be sitting at starting an actual run to it in earnest seems surreal.
I'm also going to say it. Yeh, I know I shouldn't but I'm going to.
I am going to pass the CCIE lab on the first attempt.
Alright, I'm off to make sure I have everything for Cuba and try and get a little sleep before we leave here around 3am.
