I’m a morning person. There’s little better than waking up at 7:30 to a soft and crisp breeze passing through one side of the house to the other. Its air conditioning, by Nature. I can hear birds chirping happily outside the window. This is my favorite time of year, where the price of comfort indoors […]

A close friend and I have always talked about opening a bar. We’ve got a name picked out and everything.

Post-Party Breakdown

We throw a pretty mean party. Amidst beer pong and flip cup, four people got haircuts on the deck just before midnight. We’re so extreme. They didn’t look too bad this morning either. We ran out of brew around one and twenty of us ended up walking to another house (because the kegerator there was […]

Due to a poor laptop security policy, here are some snippets from the diary of an American Community Survey (ACS) Field Representive.
