VA is For Hustlers

Nothing in the entire world could be more fitting, because today my friends, Virginia is indeed for Hustlers.

Today kicks off TURNERS MONTH OF MADNESS TRAVEL. Yes, today I fly to DC to finally see my wife. Remember the one who I married a couple of months ago, but then got accepted to a Masters program in Washington DC/Virginia. Yes, that one. I get to see her. I know, it’s kinda awesome.

But also, it means I get to go back to being a full time web design hustler. Freelancing, pixel pushing and coding for a living.

So yes, Virginia is indeed for hustlers.
