It feels like just yesterday that I started my Project 52, and it was.
What is the status of WEEK 1?
The video is: LIVE.
Watch it now, here.

What is Project 52?
Have a look here for the explanation.
What happened in Week 1?
Week 1‘s video will include scenes from my softball league, running of the olympic torch, a guy on a bicycle and me, Kris Adams. Speaking of me, I may or may not have been in a helicopter for this video (You know, start with a bang kinda idea).
In order to get the shot that I wanted I needed to do something “slightly” dangerous. If you have a weak stomach (or are my mom), look away now..
I climbed out of a window at 150 feet. This window did not have any footholds or support underneath it. All that was below it then, was 150 feet of fresh air and some hard pavement at the bottom. I needed to dangle precariously out of the window, hurl my legs onto a ledge to the left. Then, with one quick movement, transfer my weight off the window and onto the ledge. The 7 inch ledge was clearly not made for walking (there was no railing and it was getting more and more unstable with every step), and let’s just say, it struggled. It did do me proud though, and allowed me to survive. Totes alive still.
You may be asking, why were you doing such a dangerous thing? And the answer to that question is simple. Safe is for *******.
There is this outside roof area on my apartment building. It has cool stones and generally just looks fun. All the doors to get there are always kept locked (due to the fact that it is not for actual outdoor frolicking). It is a roof without railings. So I needed to make a plan to get there. The best plan I could come up with included almost dying. There is nothing like a near death experience to get your adrenaline pumping.
Some of the recap from the weekend’s events may be exaggerated (This was added so that I have deniability to the police).
