I looked down at the iCal icon on my MacBook and saw the number 1 staring at me. Yep, we’re at Day One of 2012. It’s time for a lot of resolutions. Change this. Do this. Be this. All of these ideas and all of these pursuits have merit. We should strive to be better. […]
Since my speaking schedule has slowed down for the holidays, I’m spending most of December in California visiting family, friends, and my girlfriend (who relocated to San Diego in June). I recognized that while I did better this year, my fall fitness was once again lacking–it remains tough to do with the hotel gym schedule […]
My last few weeks of travel have been visually amazing. I’ve enjoyed the fall colors present in West Virginia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Washington, Ohio, and Montana. As I flew out of Seattle today and saw the beautiful Pacific Northwest below me, I couldn’t help being amazed by the kaleidoscope of colors below. The reds. The yellows. […]
On my trip to Milwaukee this past Sunday, I became one of hundreds of passengers delayed in the Houston Airport. After another overly ambitious announcement from the airline about an earlier departure, it became evident the wait would be a longer. I headed to the men’s room nearest the gate to see this sign on […]
I’m just about to head out of town to attend the wedding of a really good friend of mine. Tomorrow morning is also trash day, and with Arizona heat, it’s a good idea to throw out perishables as close to trash day as humanly possible. So today, I cleaned out my refrigerator. Nothing wrong with […]
Don’t worry. I’ll keep out of a lot of the politics currently taking place over the complexity of the situation in Libya. I have my own personal viewpoints, but I won’t use today’s blog to post them. Rather, I wanted to address an interesting point made in the March 29th episode of The Daily Show. […]
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 […]
Last month I added the 30 Seconds to Mars This Is War album to my iTunes regular rotation. I purchased the tracks after listening to Kings & Queens in the trailers for several films. It remains my favorite song on the album, but I’ve quickly found a strong love for Vox Populi. The title is […]
On Saturday I attended the preseason game of the Arizona Cardinals vs. the Houston Texans. My group of friends had great seats–just eight rows back from the action. We went to see the game and also to support my friend’s girlfriend who is in her second year of cheering for the Cardinals. Since she is […]
I just drove from my home in Phoenix to my parents’ house in Northern California. I’m using it as a home base for the next few weeks as I visit with friends in the area, take a trip to New York, do some speaking out here, and celebrate my sister’s wedding. It should be a […]
