When success is subjective

I’ve always been a fan of sports. Not just sports, I guess you could say that I’m a fan of competition. I love some of the craziness you can find on ESPN 2 late at night, and I really wish that ESPN 8, ‘The Ocho’, was a real thing. I’m the kind of guy who…

Why are you telling me this?

We are in the process of trying to get health insurance. During the interview process I was asked some questions that I didn’t know the answers to. I needed to follow up with my doctor and get back to them. No problem. I call my doctor’s office on Tuesday and speak with a lady who…

Photography as a hobby

Taking on photography as a hobby has been quite interesting. On one hand, it’s incredibly rewarding personally. I enjoy the final results, I love sharing the photos online and receiving comments about the photos, and I am constantly challenged by the technical aspects of photography (lighting + camera settings + post processing).

Proof I need new tires

I’ve known for a while that I need new tires on my car. I bought my car brand new in June of 06, so the tires aren’t that old, but in Vegas-time, it’s an eternity. Las Vegas is notoriously hard on car tires and car batteries. My two front tires are getting a little bald…
