I’m jumping out of my skin this week, Hubski. Been working as our night shift packaging manager for 8ish weeks now with a lot of success, setting factory records, have 4 supervisors and over 100 employees under them all reporting to me. It’s wild, it’s good, but the schedule isn’t sustainable for 5 days a week which I made clear going into this. I wouldn’t mind 3 nights a week and 2 days a week of work, skiing in the morning has been spectacular...but...

I’ve been so jittery this week and itching for something different or something hard. February is a tough time of year, I haven’t climbed any mountains lately, no trail races, my fitness plateau has broke, finally, and is so great to see, so now I’m working on bouldering strength. Maybe I’m just ready for spring because Jesus I’m not so much bored so much as wondering what’s next. 29 and managing in a Fortune 500 and climbing stuff like Rainier has me putting a lot of expectations on my 30s and I gotta back down from that.

Here's something you wrote on Wednesday, August 14, 2014:

Explore yourself, explore others, explore your interest, explore your surroundings. Explore as much as you can because you probably won't have as much freedom again. If you think you're going to regret not doing something, do it. That's something that took me a while to come to terms with and agree with.

It sounds like you still agree with your then self.
