Yeah, I know what you’re thinking… What?!?!? No, I’m not quitting my job right now (I really do love what I get to do), nor am I going to go on a rant about what things I hate or my frustrations. But I am going to write about quitting. This isn’t a blog saying “don’t […]
“To infinity… and beyond!”- Buzz Lightyear It seems to me to be the perfect quote to describe Steve Jobs. Without him, there would be no Buzz Lightyear. Without him, I wouldn’t be typing this blog up as easily on my MacBook Pro with iTunes playing in the background. You may call it sentimental, but there […]
I’m 3/4 the way through Michael Lewis’ book, Moneyball. I’ve really enjoyed it. I’ll admit that friends have been recommending the book for ages, but I didn’t pick it up immediately mainly because I grew up hating the Oakland A’s (I was a SF Giants fan), and I ultimately stopped really loving baseball after the […]
Several months ago, I wrote a Mumford & Sons blog entry. It was after a pretty tough fall. Today, I write another–not to emo out or to complain, but rather to show that we all go through tough times, and there is a part AFTER the storms. If you’re a regular reader, you might already […]
So I’ll admit it. I’m a fan of the TV show, Build it Bigger. I don’t watch it all the time, but it’s definitely one that I have in my DVR for background TV–that’s TV that I have on while I do household tasks. Last night as I did my dishes and cleaned my kitchen, […]
What’s this? A blog entry? Yes, I know. I’ve been pretty MIA this whole fall when it comes to blogs. For a time, I was pretty regular with the writing, and then I fell off the map. To be blunt, I got my butt kicked this fall. I know for many of you, this might […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about time recently–not just because I have done a few times recently that opens up with time statistics, but also due to some reading and viewing. I’m sitting in the San Francisco airport right now. On my last flight, I finished reading Eat Pray Love. The final chapter (and I […]
I spent Labor Day weekend at Disneyland. It was a last second trip (I decided I’d go a week ago) to surprise some of my cousins as they ran the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon. My brother joined me for the weekend, making it a hilariously fun weekend with family. We spent a great deal of time […]
Yesterday, I saw Nike’s new advertisement for the 2010 World Cup. You can watch it here: I really like the ad, especially the Wayne Rooney section where he pictures his life defined by a bad play and makes the decision to change it. I’ve been thinking a lot about our life stories or our personal […]
I had a long layover at the Denver airport and spent most of that time watching the Duke/Baylor game. It was an incredibly exciting game, the score close throughout most of it. It wasn’t until the last few moments where Duke really pulled ahead. The commentators continued to mention it… “Second Chance Points” Duke missed […]
