Just a Little Nervous

Enjoy catching up on my boring college life:

This semester has gone by like a breeze through a treeless forest — effortlessly and eerily silent. I’ve enjoyed most of my classes — I mean, I really think I can use the material I’m learning, for once. I had a semester ...

Rothko Edition

Here we go.

First thing’s first: You might be wondering what happened to the teal? Well, after 3 weeks of development in a teal world, my skin was always crawling towards something more, well, gray. So at the last minute, I decided to try something else. Fortunately it’s ...

On Las Vegas

This is not Highway 89

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

No, seriously. I’m not talking. Well, no specifics. Specifics stay in Vegas.

Really, it was a fabulous time. We had three awesome nights of PBR events, with Mike Lee eventually pulling an upset (though only marginally upsetting) on the last day. We ...

Project Rothko

I’m excited to announce a forthcoming redesign of Worksology.com. It’s only been a week in the making (from idea conception to now), so don’t get all riled up that I’ve been keeping a big secret from you. I’m still a long ways from completely ...

To Come: Las Vegas

josh at the jackpot

For the past few years, ever since B&W began to sponsor the Professional Bull Riders, I’ve tried to sneak a trip to Las Vegas to watch the PBR World Finals. My parents and James always find the time and they meet famous people (all the cowboys of course ...

Baseball’s Biggest Game

I contend that tonight’s Yankees v Red Sox game is not even baseball. It’s beyond baseball, something greater and more important. It’s not often that you get this kind of foresight: the notion that this is history. If the Red Sox win tonight — as I think they ...

On Chicago

me and chicago

This was Tony’s trip to Chicago. In running nearly 400 miles of marathon training, he deserved to do whatever he wanted. Plus, he planned the whole thing — got our plane tickets, arranged the accommodations, and knew when we needed to be somewhere to save time with the million point ...

I Sold Some Candies

Two important concepts I learned from my finance classes are: 1) Hold investments for the long term, and 2) Consuming now means consuming less later on…

In March of 2000 — over four years ago — I bought a few stocks with some money my parents loaned me. 150 shares of CAND ...

Flowers for Arthritis

Sarah and I have always talked about — joked about, really — making some crappy things and taking them to the annual Artist Alley Festival in Chanute and trying to make a buckertwo. It’d become just another phrase in our already diverse lexicon: “Yeah, we could make those and sell em ...

Eisley & Snow Patrol

Eisley and Snow Patrol are coming to Lawrence tonight. The plan had been to have the show at the quaint bar, The Bottleneck, but apparently they sold so many tickets that two days ago, they moved the show to the much larger Granada. Bryan and I are going — leaving in ...

Career Circus

The K-State All-University Career Fair was this week — Tuesday and Wednesday. I hadn’t put a whole lot of pressure on myself to “work the hell out of it” like I had previously thought I would… I wanted more of a casual, ‘free-spirited’ (heh) approach to it, maybe coming off ...

Wayback Worksology

I’m not a professional web designer.

A lot of the changes that happen around here are incremental, mostly as my web abilities improve, and as I have time, and as I get bored, complacent with old designs. Indeed a ton of the hours behind designing and coding this site ...

Three Feet or So

I received word today that my lovely sister’s beautiful house has something like three feet of water in it. Moving water, apparently.

See, she lives about a half hour outside of Gainesville, Florida, which has been pounded on, walls of water from the sky, filling up the lake they ...

Project Sculpy

A handful of security cameras are pointed toward the K-State Student Union parking lots. I’ve always had my doubts about whether they were real, thinking their placement and aim seemed much too haphazard to indicate anything but decoys — warding away petty thieves from stealing your CDs and radar detectors ...

Room for Squares

As promised, though not in as timely a manner as I had hoped, here’s the result of one of my projects: a painting. I spent a good deal of the time working on the spacing of the squares, drawing them up and taping them off. I also had to ...

Grinder’s Fee

I went home this weekend and got sick. I’m up to my ears in little projects and most of them require me to be at B&W or home to advance them any, so I’ve been making the trip more often this month. It was Britnee’s fifth ...

A Cuchara Holiday

Somewhere in the tapers of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Blood of Christ Mountains in Southern Colorado, Tony and I helped build a deck a couple of summers ago. In return we each got what was called at the time “limited lifetime priviledges” to using the cabin. In the ...

Patience, my children

I’m having troubles with all sorts of things. Whenever things of this sort happens, my legs get weak and all I want to do is lay on the couch and be lazy and soak my worries up with high definition tv. This excuse only makes up for one day ...

I’m So Totally Graduamated

I was sitting in my living room last night, the TV on as usual, with a few books and notes on my lap, pretending that I might actually start studying. For once in my college career, yeah sure. Just two more tests, I told myself. I can make it, just ...

Scene of the Accident, vol. 2

There was that incident where my mom and I ran across a bad accident on Hwy-169, heading to Ottawa, and the minivan had flipped and pinned the poor lady’s arm and I ran over and cut her out of her seatbelt — the passenger seatbelt, rather — and held her hand ...
