Last week was a pretty good week. Things have been heating up at work; proxy season is right around the corner. I’ve been burning it at both ends for a while now, and it was good to catch up on a bit of sleep this past weekend. In keeping with a more (or arguably, less) formal weblog theme of this site, two things happened in the past seven days that I find to be particularly noteworthy:
1. Scott and I went to yoga class on Saturday and sort of “graduated” to the intermediate level. We started going to yoga back in September of 2007 – we signed up for the monthly membership at Integral Yoga in Fair Lawn NJ and went regularly for about three months. Things got hectic after that and we pared it down to about once every couple of months. I’d love to say that I go through the postures at home about once a week, but it’s actually a lot less frequent than that.
Anyway, after class this past Thursday, the instructor suggested that we try the intermediate class – that it would give us more to think about and work on than the beginner class. First, Integral Yoga is a pretty serious studio; classes there are very different from the classes one might attend at “the gym”. The rules are relatively strict and I have the impression that there’s definitely a difference in the class-gradations. Second, this particular instructor is no slouch, so we felt quite honored that he would suggest we were qualified to attend the intermediate class. Scott and I both take our yoga practice seriously and definitely consider ourselves beginners. We were pretty psyched to be told that we were proficient enough to move up a level.
2. My article “Hedge Fund Activism Extends to SPACs” was published (albeit on a Sunday) on the Harvard Law School Corporate Governance Blog (note the capital “B”). You can view it here. I posted it here at The Quixotic Jedi not too long ago, after it was posted on DealLawyers.com (here). And if you’re really into internet obscurities, you can view it here, on my WordPress work-related blog “The Zen Capitalist“. I really need to spend more time on that one.
I know the article itself is a bit easier to read than greek to the layperson, and I know that both sites are blog-formats, so pretty much anything that qualifies as “content” is welcome, but I don’t think either site would accept just anything from anyone. Broc Romanek (who maintains DealLawyers.com) is pretty well-known, and the other site is at Harvard, for cripes sake. So it’s nice to be able to speak intelligently about a subject in my field, and to be recognized therefor.
