Fly finances (pun intended)

October 21, 2009

If I could be any animal I would be a house fly. Okay, not really, I’d probably be a fire breathing squirrel, but house fly would be second on my list. Yeah I know flies are pretty gross looking and only have an average life span of about a month, but they do have one […]

When in doubt, go overseas

October 20, 2009

My first international business trip has taught me some valuable life lessons. For example, don’t drink the water.

October 14, 2009

Sometimes I think to myself. I can’t believe I’m a grown up. I don’t feel old. I don’t look old, and I sure as hell don’t act old. I use to think “old” was an age, but I’m quickly learning it’s a lifestyle. I sit here now, wondering, what else can I expect for my […]

Savings are for stupid-heads

October 13, 2009

Sorry I seemed to drop of the face of the earth the last couple days, but I’ve quickly learned after living on an island no bigger than a Super Wal-Mart, the internet here is quite unreliable. I’m glad to be up and running today, so hopefully I will be able to post regularly. Now on […]
