Last week, I mentioned to Ben: “Remember what we were doing this time last year?” He paused. Then, “Whoa.”
This time last year, Ben was still working at a real awful little company that had sent him on a seemingly never-ending business trip to Oceanside, on which
We have a TV hooked up to a PC in our living room, which functions as both our desktop computer and Netflix/Hulu viewing device since we don’t actually have cable. It also plays Spotify nonstop, but only if a screensaver prevents it from pausing every few minutes. That screensaver is a polar [...]

Well, here we are: 2012. Twenty-eleven was a pretty huge year for me. Today, I’m reflecting on some of that hugeness and also doing a little dreaming and scheming for the future. I’m going to form my 12 in 2012 list, and also set some deeper and more private goals. It’s hard [...]
