Interest in Teaching Long Term

For a few years, I’ve been mentally considering the idea of teaching in 15 or 20 years.  This is a long term idea that has really stuck with me for whatever reason; here are the main reasons why:
1.  I had a handful of good Marketing and business teachers, the ones that were truly great changed [...]

Time to Get Back to Conversational

I haven’t written a lot lately, and part of that is due to the idea of writing more in depth and “professional” posts.  Of course, that’s antithetical in nature to why this site was built and what it’s supposed to be for.  This is not a professional site and it’s not supposed to be, so [...]

Dog Days of Winter

It’s bitter cold in Minneapolis. January 22nd and -9 as of now.
I find this time of year to be pretty tough most years. This year has been a bit better due to the trip to Costa Rica, but it’s tough to get up and out of bed when it’s extremely cold [...]

Beat the Heat

It’s been a sweltering summer here in Minneapolis.  We’ve been routinely hitting nineties and even up to one hundred degrees lately.  Many out there may be thinking, “Um, I live in the Southern half of the US?”  That’s a pretty common reaction to people in Minnesota complaining.  The big difference in heat up here is [...]

Almost Lost Ring: Heart Palpitations

The other night when Teresa and I were going down to the lake, we almost lost her engagement ring!  We searched for a few hours that night before going to bed.  The next day Teresa took off work to search and I posted it to Craiglist as well as twitter looking for assistance.  Here’s what [...]

Kept My Trek 1.5

After posting my Trek 1.5 to Craigslist for sale, no one really seemed to want it.  I was kind of on the fence about selling it anyway as I knew when I did it might bug me later.  It’s a really nice bike, I just wanted something with thicker tires because the roads around here [...]

Selling My Trek 1.5

Time to get rid of my awesome road bike.  I’m going to get waaaaay back into biking this year and I’ve been meaning to get a hybrid, something a little further upright and sturdier.
This bike actually does really well overall, but I just can’t shake the feeling that I’ll like something a little bit sturdier.
I’m [...]

Top Albums of 2011

It’s that time of year again.  But I have left myself very little time to think about the best music of 2011.  Luckily I have a Last.fm page that covers my last 12 months.  I don’t know if I’ll do 10 albums this year or not.  There seems to be a backlash against the year [...]

Why are there so few blogs worth reading around MN? Or am I blind?

I love Mpls. And Minnesota in general.
I’ve worked and gone to school here in Minneapolis since getting out of SCSU in 2005. It’s a great place to live with a ton of really smart and funny people.
But…
I was looking at my blogroll and thinking why all the really interesting stuff I read is [...]

Timberwolves In 2011

We haven’t been perfect over the two years since David Kahn has started, but at this point, I’m pretty excited about the upcoming year.  Our lineup is VERY young, but they offer a ton of upside.  We will be running and have a pass first point guard.  From a marketing perspective, the team is getting [...]
