"I use to stay up all night when I'd fly home from graduate school. So, I'd wake up at about 10am the morning before the flight and I'd end up going to bed at about 2am the morning that I'd get home. So, about 40 hours straight.…"

"Pretty much Slipknot and Deftones exclusively when I'm running. Nothing when I am lifting. No particular reason why, that's just the way I have always done things."

Thinking About Law School? I'd Think Long and Hard About It.

http://cominganarchy.com/2010/01/08/the-legal-profession-must-be-saved-from-itself/



I have two friends who are currently in law school and after reading this, I wonder if either of them will end up on my couch at some point in the future. I'm not going to lie, I'd rather see Heidi when I wake in the morning as opposed to Josh and his missus. I'd probably be the one on the damn couch if… Continue

Posted on January 3, 2010 at 12:42am 1 Comment

Most of us have problems. I know! Shocking isn't it? And whenever it seems like one problem gets taken care of, we have another one that sprouts up in its place.



I had a conversation with a friend once who, while engaged in a lively debate about the purpose of life, queried, "for what would life be if not a series of problems?"



I got to admit, I ran with his logic for a long time. I always had problems. People at work were a problem. Stuff at home was a problem. My love… Continue

Getty/Dubay and the fountain pen

Hey all,In an effort to both get my feet wet with fountain pens and to improve my handwriting, I purchased a Lamy Safari (I also have the refillable doohicky and a bottle of Quink) as well as the book "Write Now" by Getty/Dubay.  The book was recommended in this group in an older discussion, that's why I bought it. While my handwriting isn't too bad by most people's standards, I'd like it to be excellent.  I often take notes and when writing as fast as I can, my handwriting quickly becomes hard…See More
