Month: December 2012

Last Day of 2012

  We’ve officially made it to the end of 2012 and I can’t quite believe it happened so fast. This is incentive as ever that I need to be productive in the next year. If I don’t I could very well see my entire life flash before my eyes and that would be entirely upsetting.   This should be an interesting year for work.

It’s like every time I think “Man I wish I had X.” I can turn to you and you’ll have it in ninety different shades and from thirteen different manufacturers.   I mean, it hasn’t all been great,...[Read More]
