The Difficulty of Giving (To Me)

I turned 29 on Thursday.  It was a pretty good day overall, did a lot of fun stuff and spent time with my fiancee and a few others.  I didn’t take the day off.
People really seem to freak out about birthdays.  As though being a certain age signals the end of something great.  Conversely it’s [...]

Two Years Out of Business School!

It blows my mind, but it’s already been two years since business school finished.  I really find this hard to believe.  Time definitely goes faster as you get older.
