Early in the morning my coworker told me that the jackpot had risen to some all-time high and he was thinking that we would buy some tickets and split the winnings. We joked about it for a while then became more and more serious. We would each get ten […]

There has been an awakening!

Just got back from seeing the midnight showing of Star Wars! No spoilers, just emotions.

Chokehold Your Destiny Until it Taps Out!

Here is a story. Maybe a parable that you can use in your life.

So as many of you know Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain came out this Tuesday. I mentioned that I preordered the game and on Monday received a tracking code letting me know that it had been shipped.

Forgive me readers, for I have sinned. It has been a while since I last blogged.

Where do I start? My son and I both celebrated our birthdays, I read a ton of books, went to several Central Market cooking classes. I learned to make pizza, pasta and croissants, respectively.

How Bad Do You Want This Job?

Last Friday I posted a position for a Graphic Designer for our company. My duties as Web Designer/Developer/Graphic Designer/Print Department/IT Support proved ineffective and we had to make a change. First day back in the office and I’m trying to replace half of myself.

What was fascinating to me was being on this side of of the interview process.

First off where […]
