Appreciation Vs Criticism

I logged on to Facebook this morning and found an article posted by my cousin Nikki. She said it was a bit long but worth the read so I took a few minutes from my morning news reading and read it. By the time I got to the end of it, I felt like I … Continue reading »

Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

For awhile on Facebook there was this thing going around where people were putting X number of previously unknown things about themselves. I thought a little about this and figured I would do the same. Be prepared, some of these may surprise you if you know me at all. I have been fired from three … Continue reading »

Changing Yourself

Tonite I am in Miami Beach, Florida. It’s our yearly user’s conference and tonite was the final night with the big party blowout. Lots of people drinking, dancing, and having a good time. I found myself yet again, sitting at a table, watching people, and doing very little. In fact, I was kind of bored. … Continue reading »

Hard work always pays off, eventually

I can’t say for certain, but I am pretty sure it was March 13th, 2000. It might have been the week before but it was 12 years ago. It’s kind of hard to remember that far back. I had spent a week getting materials ready and had never done this sort of thing before. I … Continue reading »

A trip out west, and back in time

On November 29th, 2010, I boarded Air Canada flight 8931 and began the long journey that would end only two days later.

Flashbacks with a side of travel please

On May 22nd, 1995, me and Chris had the pleasure of seeing Faith No More play live in Toronto at a place called The Warehouse. We stood in line for hours where we eventually did get to meet Roddy and Puffy and got into the show. I remember very vividly how hard I managed to … Continue reading »
