I want to be an intern.
Actual jobs are for the birds. Working 60 hour weeks, having a job description, dealing with unruly clients, who would want that?
Interning is indeed where it’s at. In fact, I once had coffee with a colleague who told me if he were able he would, “Intern at two or three different places to make up a full-time job.” When I pressed him further on his weird yet intriguing desire, he convinced me that interning has it’s benefits. I’ve believed this for so long, that I wrote this blog post when I interned here.
I realize it may be a week away, but what are your plans for Memorial Day?
Growing up the in suburbs of Philadelphia, Memorial Day meant several things: school is out, we're going "down the shore" (Ocean City, NJ), the Phillies game would be on, and it was a great day to have barbeques or parties with friends.
I knew that it was an American holiday to remember and respect the lives that were sacrificed for my freedom, but I didn't neccessarily know why.
That (lack of knowledge) has changed.
When I began dating my fiancee, I did as much as possible to study and learn about the female gender. There were MANY things that I learned and much that I hope to learn in the coming months. One thing that has stuck with me thus far, however, is that women absolutely need to be heard.

Last week in my world brought new meaning to the lyrics that Coldplay has immortalized in music history. I had a several projects in fairly delicate stages of their timelines, and I could not figure out several different issues in front of me. My tasks were clear, and I knew the issues I had to deal with, but the solutions were not nearly as readily available.
I was ready to give up.
We use uncooked pieces of spaghetti for the stirrers in our coffee here at the office. If you knew how much coffee we drink, you'd understand why. It saves money, it's good for the environment, and our visitors think it's awesome (I promise it doesn't mess with the flavor even the slightest bit).
