I Need My Blog!

Jul 18th, 2006 | By | Category: Personal Stories

The last week was crazy. 7 Day work weeks. Midnight oil every day. Had two conferences even on Sunday night!
And there was the stress of taking on new projects. While, I enjoy closing deals … I don’t really have the manpower to handle new projects!

Jul 12th, 2006 | By | Category: Personal Stories

This morning, I had my graduation ceremony.
Yes, the whole shebang.
Wore a gown, tossed by grad cap outside UCC, and took photos with a lot of old faces.
Since I had officially gotten my degree six months ago … this event didn’t have much sentimental value. Nevertheless, it was a fun use of a wednesday morning (I [...]

Dammit, I’m so pissed! Stayed up all night to watch the grand old men of France finish off their great campaign.
And it had to end with that foolish foul by Zidane. What the hell was he thinking! That’s no freaking way to end your international career. And that just took away the great momentum France [...]



My Love Life …

Why I was feeling blue …
Last night, two close friends of mine took me aside to check if I was feeling normal. Apparently, they thought I had a lot on my mind and my mind was somewhere far away from the party I was at.
They were right. So, to get some things off my chest [...]

Movie Review – Superman Returns!

And the reviews were [...]

My dear friend Tracy is getting married today! So, I wrote for her a little poem that you might want to hear …
This day is special,

This posting is about Grease!
Man, it’s been a while since I heard that music. When I [...]

For those who haven’t seen it … here’s the 30 second recap. Richard Gere is a rich multi-millionaire. He’s lonely and in a new city. Julia Roberts [...]

Man, my landlord wants to increase the rent by $200 (Landlord, if you’re reading … _|_ off !) … So I recently started looking for new apartments.
