That’s me now, but I wasn’t always that way. There were a few skills I needed to master and lessons I … Continue reading

This is by far some the best life advice I’ve ever heard. It’s the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College by David Foster Wallace. It’s brilliant. I had to share it.

It’s time for a much needed vacation. The family and I will be living it up on a 4-day Disney Cruise to the Bahamas. This will be our first Disney Cruise. I don’t know a lot about Disney parks or cruises but I think it’ll be fun. Cigars by the pool with Mickey. Late night … Continue reading

So I’m walking to the subway station this morning and I thought to myself, how great would it be to have theme music? Like the kind wrestlers or boxers walk out to. Can you imagine the fun you could have with a theme song? Oh I’d do it up right. Before I walked into a room … Continue reading
