Can you believe it? I started this blog as a way to procrastinate my way through what would be maybe a few hours of work a day. To think, I turned those mere hours into an extra semester worth of a Senior Thesis! For those of you that know me, the answer is no – I’m still not done with it. Good thing I still have the site though, otherwise I might actually have to sit down and finish it one day.
So to recap the stats for this blog I thought I’d put together a few of the highlights for this post. As of the very minute I’m writing this I have had 12,255 page views with a one-day record of 254 views on February 26, 2011. That day I post about Aqueous at Mount Titus which had 90 views all by itself. Also in that post was a bit about the Mustache Ride 2010 at Saint Lawrence and it just so happens to be that time of year again. I hope the rest of you have continued your support of prostate cancer awareness month/lazy month of not shaving. My beard is looking good but nothing like the 10 incher I sported a while back.
As for a personal update: I got a job working at Lockheed Martin doing typical entry-level shit. I’m working specifically with a rebate program that helps to provide financial assistance to those households that were affected by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee. It’s some big program started by Governor Cuomo that boosts his political recognition and spurs some economic consumerism by kicking back some loot for buying Energy Star appliances. I hear about my co-worker’s kids and families and nod and say, “That’s interesting,” more times than not. Such is life and a job is a job.
I’m hoping to move to Boston soon and I’m looking to you guys to help out with any job opportunities you know of in the area. Send me some info if you have anything at all. ANYTHING at all. You all know what it’s like to be stuck at home with ‘roommates’ who constantly judge and nag you about vacuuming the house or putting away the groceries or tell you to “stop getting drunk with your friends.” Don’t tell me what to do, roomie! Seriously, help me get out of here by finding me gainful employment.
Other than that though, life is truckin’ on. I have to get that paper done and figure out how to get back to Denmark and once all that is squared away it’ll be time for the holidays. If I haven’t caught up with you in a while please make the effort to drop me a line either on facebook or shoot me an e-mail. It’s always good to hear from a friend and I genuinely want to know what you all are up to.
After 500 posts and countless hours of cruising the internet I have one final piece of advice that’s taken me a while to really internalize so I think it fitting to share.
Don’t Be a Dick, Be a Dude.
On what NOT to do –
