I am thankful for a good week. I had a solid job interview for a position that would be a nice promotion. I got sweet new ink on my arm (see below). And now it’s the weekend, so I get to spend time with the fam.


Thanks, Case of the Mondays

Yesterday was Monday but today FEELS like Monday. Feeling very exhausted, but…

I am very thankful that last night I submitted my last grad school paper for awhile. I’ve got about two months off and I am very excited for a long needed break.

I am also thankful for opportunity that is presenting itself later this week. Feel free to keep me in your prayers around 10am on Thursday.

Thanks, Easter Edition

The requisite Christian answer for today’s thankfulness blog is that I’m thankful that God died for me… and I am… everyday, in fact… but that feels like a cop out answer.

I am very thankful for time spent with family today. I am very thankful for my wife’s incredible baking skills. I am very thankful for the message I heard at the church service I attended this morning. I am very thankful that I have some cool possibilities ahead of me this week. And, I am very thankful that I have a lot of awesome people in my life.

Word? Word.

Thanks, Tipsy Easter Eve Edition

Tonight, I’m thankful for family and beer… not necessarily in that order.

Yesterday, I was able to spend my night resting with my wife. It was nice to just lay on the couch together and relax. I’m thankful for nights like that.

Today, I’m thankful that even during periods where I am frustrated by my job and those I work for, there are voices and situations that ground me and remind me that it’s not that bad.

Thanks, Days 104 and 105

Yesterday, I was thankful at work that I knew my stuff and was able to make an important recommendation to upper mamagement.

Today, I am thankful that my boss backed up my recommendation and was very supportive in my current efforts and projects.

Thanks, Day 101-103

These last few days, I’ve been very thankful that, for me, my job is not my life. If I defined who I am but my career, I’d likely have banged my head through a wall at least half a dozen times by now.

Thanks, Day 100

Today, I’m thankful that I got to catch up and finish watching How I Met Your Mother last night.
