Nomad.

Before I begin this post, let me apologize and say, it’s a bit of a rant of all the thoughts that I need to get off of my chest. Mainly for myself, but hey, that’s what blogs are for It’s that time of year again.. thinking about moving! When I say thinking about moving, what . . .

Dude, Did That Just Happen?

Something CRAZY happened this morning and I think it deserves a post all to itself. I ran (SURPRISE!). But no, I didn’t just run, I ran super duper speedy. Speedier than ever before! First, I thought my watch was on the fritz because I couldn’t believe my eyes. Check this out. Now, I know that’s . . .

July Long Weekend

Was perfect! Couldn’t have asked for better company, weather, and activities. Saturday after work, I met up with a few friends at Irish Times. We didn’t stay too long but it was great.
