happy endings + Costa Rica newsletter #2

hey friends- quick changelog from us today instead of a Friday because
1- we want to, we make the rules.
2- we’re switching to WordPress so need to migrate this domain 🫡

Since launching The Thing, we’ve been busy building, learning, and connecting.

We’ve dropped a few videos on YouTube

Updates from us “founders Blog”

Madisen is in Costa Rica right now (she should not have had the tuna🍣), but even being super unwell didn’t stop her from covering the 50th anniversary of TCP/IP in a video.

Madisen is- deepening her yoga practice, avoiding tuna for life, building out community plans within SF @ the AI collective

Renee is – failing to learn front end @ the rate she’d like to, on a lifting journey, getting a passport & relying too much on the moon.
