The Best Vacations Are Free

September 21, 2009 · 5 comments

As you all know, I am currently on a business trip in the Marshal Islands (MI). I’ve been here for three days now, and I have to say, I’m in love. I thought Hawaii was incredible when I was there last week, but it’s got nothing on the MI. I’m looking forward to the next […]

I’m just gonna be honest with you all; My time is really not that valuable. Sometimes I think people overstress (is that a word?) the importance of their time. Let’s take a look in to my life and see what I had going down yesterday. Wake up 7:45am Arrive at my “office” at 7:46am Work […]

You remember the days of top ramen, hot pockets, wearing the same pair of jeans for two weeks in a row, and strategically planning your gas tank to be on empty when mom and dad came to visit? These were typical college experiences for many of us. I did some thinking over the weekend, and […]
