Establishing our Credibility – 08.03.2022

In order to demonstrate to DoOrder tomorrow that we are worth being taken seriously, we must each have something to show for our week of effort in our respective areas. It would be silly for us to have no deeper comments than what we asked them last Wednesday, which means that we must arrive with…

First Impressions of Dublin – 08.02.2022

What caught my attention first was the architecture. I could tell that where I’m from, in the northeast, some of he buildings are inspired by cultural architecture from this region of the world, which is in alignment with the history of the groups of people who emigrated into the United States. It’s interesting to me…

Awaiting Departure – 08.01.2022

Sitting in the cabin of a plane, waiting to ascend into the clouds, I am always overcome by a dichotomous blend of excited anticipation and hesitant angst for the transcendental removal of my physical self from the tangible earth into the ethereal skies. It fills me with a warm, imperceptible notion of security – belonging…

First Sip Brew Box’s subscription model gives them a lot of flexibility in terms of pushing shared values.

Looking Ahead to the Next Four Years – Blog Post – 07.26.2022

I really like music that fills me with raw, epic emotion, but that doesn’t distract me with intelligible words. My favorite group is called Two Steps From Hell. A lot of the music they make creates images of battlefields and bloodied heroes. Sometimes, when I’m in a lighter mood, I turn to the old reliable:…
