Absolutely Nothing

We've coined ourselves The 3 Musketeers. Recently Igor, Michael and I have found ways to amuse ourselves by adding some humor to the ever-present pressure of our careers. Over the last few weeks we managed to find a way to squeeze an 8.5 foot tall Christmas tree into my hybrid, taste test Krakus cookies from... Continue Reading →

Purpose vs Pleasure

With so many demands on our lives it becomes far too easy to lose sight of our life's ambition. I'm constantly adding tasks to my to-do list at work. The tasks that are extra important get put on post-it notes. When some the tasks are ultra important, I stick the post-it note somewhere eye level within... Continue Reading →

Mind Mush

I've been struggling with what to write about lately. Needless to say that's why I haven't been blogging. Recently it seems that here has been a circus in my head busy with juggling career, adult responsibilities, new courses, timelines, deadlines and the list goes on and on. I never really invested too much time watching... Continue Reading →

Frankl Time flies by at an incredible pace, sometimes the work days seem to pass at a snail's pace causing one to wake each morning grateful to be one day closer to the weekend. The weekend arrives then... Continue Reading →

“Me Time”

Fall has grown to be my favorite time of year. Even though where I live I don't get to witness the leaves changing color or feel the crispness in the air as temperatures dip. I do get to see Venus in the fall night sky nearly every night. Maybe fall is special to me because it's... Continue Reading →

A Perfect Day For A Ballgame

The sport that evokes more nostalgia among Americans is baseball. So many of us learned to play this sport as children. Baseball originated before the American Civil War (1861-1865) as rounders, a humble game played in sand lots. The first professional league was born in 1871. By the beginning of the 20th century, most large cities... Continue Reading →

Day 6: Amsterdam!

Wow! There aren’t words to describe the feeling Amsterdam gives me. It’s wonderful, beautiful to look at and the weather is splendid. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long to visit. It’s so hard for me to visit a place twice when there’s so much of the world out there left to be seen but... Continue Reading →

Parts Unknown:White Chocolate

Maybe it's it the moving day jitters, you know the buyer's remorse that we're all too familiar with for those in real estate. Except this time the rolls were reversed and there was a panic that sent everything into a tizzy because one of the desks I ordered was the color "white chocolate". The theme... Continue Reading →

World Cup Wednesday 2018

It wasn't my average Wednesday.  I started the morning waking up earlier than usual to meet friends at a restaurant to watch Mexico play Sweden at 7:00 a.m. (my time). I was instructed to arrive at 6:30 a.m. to secure in spot in line. I arrived to a handful of half-asleep fans decorating the outside... Continue Reading →

The messages from him started coming in with plenty of updates filled with lots of excitement, compassion and enthusiasm. I'm going... Continue Reading →

My Boss My Friend

Your job posting came to my ears through a friend, even though the job didn't sound very glamorous it sounded like the most bountiful... Continue Reading →

Time Gone By

It's just before 7 pm on a Tuesday night as I sit patiently awaiting my niece's name to be called so she can walk the stage in recognition of  successfully completing middle school to move onto high school. A sideshow projected the images of 8th graders to show how they progressed through the school year.... Continue Reading →

I spent the night in Phoenix last night to attend an event at the Wells Fargo Arena at Arizona State University. I stayed at a boutique type hotel that is part of the Marriott hotel chain called The Moxy. The Moxy is decorated in a retro style with lots of modern flair. I've really been... Continue Reading →

From Idea To Reality

The idea of starting a podcast transitioned into becoming an actual podcast. Our podcast is like a variety show with 4 hosts; Grant, Igor, Michael and myself. We discuss various topics and we answer seeking advice questions.  Finding people who wanted to create a podcast with me was easy but coming up with a name... Continue Reading →
