On Two Wheels, Self-Powered

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

Today, for the first time this year, I got outside on the bicycle. It has even been about 2 months since I used the trainer… since before the job hunt stuff really ramped up. I ended up doing 21.5 miles on the south side and jail trails. Overall, I have to say it was good […]


Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Over the last couple of months I haven’t really been getting that much poker time in. The regular Shadyhouse Game has faltered in getting enough people on Fridays lately, and I haven’t been playing in as many sit and go’s online, either. On top of that it’s been a couple months since I’ve sat down […]

Coming up Second Best

Monday, May 28th, 2007

It shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone that I’ve been less than prolific in my posting over recently. I had that whole “job search” thing going on, the semester was ending, and it was the beginning of the summer bringing some really nice weather. So, where to start after six weeks of radio […]

Burn in Hell, PNC Bank

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007

I’m back from “Orlando”, but more on that later. I have decided that I must switch banks.  Why?  Because the folks at PNC Bank are unethical bloodsuckers. This story starts out with me making a error.  I fully acknowledge that my idiocy starts the ball rolling here, but it ends with PNC being a company […]

"Move in and secure the objective"

Friday, March 30th, 2007

"Move in and secure the objective"1 So it’s just about that time. Tomorrow morning I leave for Orlando… well, actually Kissimmee, FL2. At any rate, I attend the ACPA conference every year, and go for the professional development opportunities, as well as the chance to see friends who are scattered far and wide. This year, […]

Sometimes, torque is the enemy.

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

This past Saturday started off cloudy and rainy, but by the afternoon, the sky was clearing and the temperature was pleasant. As such, Angela and I decided that we should take the bike out to dinner and then to the bowling party we were to attend. When I took the bike out of hibernation for […]

In Which I Discuss Stuff, Things, & Whatnot

Monday, March 26th, 2007

The last week has been very busy, and this week is only going to be busier. In four days I leave for the ACPA / NASPA Joint Meeting in Orlando. The main focus of things for me this time around is, as I have mentioned, the job search I’m conducting. When I last updated a […]

The New Wave: Spamless spam comments

Saturday, March 24th, 2007

So, someone explain this to me. Over the last few days I’ve received a whole new wave of spam comments on the site that aren’t being caught by Akismet. Why aren’t they being caught? Because there’s nothing in them! That’s right.. in order to beat spam filters, it seems some spammers have decided to just […]

Bang, Boom, Crash

Monday, March 19th, 2007

One of the best parts of my job has always been that I have the ability to make my own schedule. This isn’t a 9-5 sort of job, so we don’t have to stick to a 9-5 sort of schedule. That means if I want to go in from 9-5 on Monday, and Tuesday, but […]

Job Serach

Sunday, March 18th, 2007

To Whom It May Concern: I’m great. Give me a job now. KTHXBYE, Mike As some of you may already be aware, I’m currently in the process of a job search. The “why” of the situation is quite simple: I’m finishing up my third year as a Resident Director, and I feel I’ve gained all […]
