I woke up this morning feeling refreshed, rested, non-headachy, and ready for adventure1. Fortunately for me, adventure was exactly what this doctor had on order. Specifically, adventure in the form of zip-lining with Rick and Jasper2. The morning started off with a trip to Starbucks (of course) for go-go juice and a lunch order. It […]Read more "Feeling Zippy"

Last night, I awoke after sleeping for only 4.5 hours. Normally this scenario would involve me leaping out […]Read more "Back On Track"
One more week until mini-vacation number 1 for 2012. I. Am. Stoked. Also, I. Can’t. Wait. While I know that vacation is only a week away, the next 6 days are going to be intense. But all in a very good way, of course. Tomorrow is pretty much the same-old, same old. Marking assignments, writing […]Read more "The Countdown Is On"
How is it Sunday night already? I honestly don’t feel like I’ve had the rest that I need given that tomorrow starts another jam packed week. Oh well, suck it up Gillis. Don’t worry though – this isn’t a bad thing. It just means that I’ve been playing as hard as I’ve been working. And […]Read more "How Many Steps Back Does One Take For Being An Asshat?"
