Sun, Rest and Food: Day 12

Lots of sunshine, in fact, I’m getting pretty reddish now.  Today was another day of rest and relaxation.  We are basically taking two days not do much of anything.
That’s actually harder for me than it sounds.  I struggle to stay in and not DO something.  I don’t recall when I got this way.  Nowadays, I [...]

Pale Blue Dot

Here’s an animation of Pale Blue Dot, from the one and only Carl Sagan:

Priorities.

This is just sad.  Of course there are plenty of other things we spend on that are every bit as frivolous.

Off to Sconny

Another bachelor party for this weekend.  Going to enjoy some time on the lake with a friend from school and relax a bit before my big day next Friday.  There’s still plenty to finalize for the wedding, but overall it seems to be under control.  I’m lucky in that Teresa has handled most of the [...]

Boston’s Swan Song

I watched the first three quarters of the Boston/Heat series and have to say that it seems Boston’s time has finally come.  My favorite player, Kevin Garnett is still playing very well on both ends of the floor, but the other two members of their aging triumvirate are not really doing a lot.  Additionally, the [...]

Back from Winnipeg

Propaghandi was rad!  Got an awesome new shirt.  Also had two trips of 8+ hours.
Next time, we fly.

A Cognizant Failure (Marketing via Facebook) REPOST

Editors note:  I found this as one of my last writings before moving to a new domain.  It was written in 2008.  Figured I’d repost for fun.

I write this in lieu of actually studying managerial finance, which excites me to no start.
Recently, I started a grassroots marketing campaign for the MA Fund (you’ll notice you can [...]

Out of Practice

I’ve been stressed out lately.  There are a lot of good reasons to be stressed as of now:  planning a wedding and doing many of the activities associated, setting off a major launch at work, classes outside of work etc.  Conversely, there’s NEVER any real reason to get that stressed about things, it’s really a [...]

Having a Degree Does NOT Make You Good at Whatever It May Be

Had this thought today while working.  So many people get degrees in their choice area to work, yet that alone does not make them good, much less great.  In fact, it’s almost as though society expects that a degree in something make people inherently better at it.  To an extent, this must be true or [...]

How Do You Stay Smart?

I’m coming back to this question because it keeps revealing itself to me. My mortality is all too obvious today it seems.
Previous life reflections have almost always been centered on the idea of what I should be doing and if my path is going where I’d like to be. Those thought processes and [...]
