old school communication

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Social media has changed they way we access and push out information – especially in regards to how fast this information can be acquired and distributed. If I need to know something, I Google it.

downgrading the cocktail

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

I have been going to the gym more often, the only kind of pasta I eat is wheat and I’ve recently gotten into Pilates on exercise TV. My problem (other than chocolate) is that to me, the best kind of beer is the kind with the most hops and unfortunately, the most calories. Michelob Ultra […]

For my weekend, I have high hopes of spending tonight doing my taxes, spending Saturday taking my cousins to the Museum of […]
