Skiboarding Trip

For most of my life I’ve considered snow skiing to be my favorite of all sports. Mostly because it’s the only one I can say I’m any good at and not be stretching the truth in some way. I’m a decent shot, especially from behind the ...

On Skiboarding

Just a quick recap from yesterday before I start raving about my new experience with skiboards (love them!)

Brett & I made it to Denver without much of a story — we stopped into Salina to get some stuff done (that’s where Brett’s from), watched some Seinfeld DVDs en route ...

A Little Professional

Things change quickly. Motivation, priorities, confidence, — the way people talk to you. I’m talking about my work here.

Before I dive into this, I’m gonna make a generic disclaimer to my readers — an apology of sorts for maybe not being too specific or overly-forthcoming with details about things ...

Marriott Crystal Gateway

Regarding the previous post, I booked my hotel room this weekend at the Marriott Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Virginia. I felt so professional, finally, that I went ahead and signed up for the Marriott Rewards program. Maybe that’ll pay off someday.

I’m just so ready to be out ...

Three Poorly Thought-out Plans

It wasn’t until I was lying in bed last night that I realized I had made three pretty sizable mistakes during the day. Any other day I might have decided that things just weren’t shining my way, and I would have crashed and watched movies for the rest ...

This is not going to get technical

I so enjoyed writing about my experience with the new B&W dealer search the other day, that I’ve decided that as long as development continues, I’ll occasionally write about some of the concepts, problems, and issues that come up as I work my way through it. Not ...

The Problem with Canada

Today, as I’ve finished up all the other “known issues” with the dealer search so far, I turn my attention to locating Canadian Dealers. B&W indeed does have some Canadian dealers who will definitely not want to be left out of the new search. But there are some ...

Visitor Log

My guestbook has been getting so much spam lately that I desperately needed to figure out another way to manage it. This is my solution:

This entry’s comments will serve as the guestbook. If you have comments about the site, leave them here. Thanks.

Prelated Birthday

I’m just going to assume “prelated” is a word. Whatever. This weekend I went to Kansas City to do some shopping, see my newest nephew, and celebrate my birthday with my family.

Mom & Dad came up with my car, which had been at home ever since I came back ...

New Living Room

I promise to recap my business trip to Washington D.C. later this week, but to not go another day without a post, I figured I’d share a little spring cleaning project that Bryan and I did last weekend. For the 28 months that we’ve lived in our ...

A Juggling Act

Life is rather hectic here, now. The fact that I say I hate school on a regular basis (hourly regular) just points to how much I really do like working. Because, as many of you know, I really really DO enjoy school. I’ve never had a problem with learning ...

Hello, I’m still alive.

Hello, everyone. Sorry for the extended vacation. As you can probably guess, I’m so-called busy. But to top that off, I’m also a wee bit sick… you know, one of those little cold things I always seem to have. Ugh.

I just spent this past weekend in Fort ...

Things That May or May Not Have Happened in Ft Worth

So last weekend — or was it two weekend ago?? — hell, this time thing kinda sucks. No time, no time! There’s never any time! Anyway, oh yeah, so two weekends ago my brother James and I saddled up in my Passat (sans one hubcap) and tooled on down to Fort ...

Introducing…

It’s April 7th, and I’m finally feeling a breeze of fresh air in my life. My “deadlines” at work were all last Friday, April 1st, and they were met, more or less, as expected. There’s still an unbelievable amount of work to be done, and there’s ...

How to Draw a Bunny

ray johnson bunny

The girl and I watched a remarkable documentary last night about a remarkable artist named Ray Johnson, who neither of us (despite her being an Art degree grad) had ever heard of. Rather disappointing, actually, because he seems to be one of the more profound, influential, and PRESENT pop artists ...

Makings of a Disaster

Tonight I have one of the most intimidating exams of my college career. I’m surprisingly relaxed. Here’s the deal:

It’s for a class called “The Application of the Theory of Constraints” and tonight’s test represents the ONLY exam we’ll have in the class all semester ...

This, fellow and forthcoming students, is how college is done

Today is the Wednesday before dead week — my last dead week ever. And with tonight’s efforts, I’m aiming to make it as dead as possible. Indeed, my entire semester has genuinely been a dead semester and I really haven’t pushed much effort into my scholastic responsibilities. I ...

Almost, almost.

Tonight I’m neglecting studying for the “last time.” (quotes are due to Tony’s insistence that I never say I’m done with school — least not at 24). Oh my god, I’m 24. And I’m done with school.

Well almost: tomorrow’s my final final exam and ...

Finally.

I really don’t want to try to say anything profound to sum up my college experience cos I’m really not good at that sort of thing. I’d rather just sit here and wax nostalgically about Ireland and the dorms and commuting 2 hours each weekend to visit ...

Savannah Vacation

Today Jessa & I are taking a vacation. We’re leaving this afternoon (though later than I’d hoped) towards our first stop in St. Louis. Because Savannah, our ultimate destination, is so far away (on the ocean!), we’re really not going to have time to do as much of ...
