What I Learned: September 11, 2015

Looks like we’re doing these once a month now…

  • We went to The Liberty for lunch roulette. I went with the Painted Hill’s Natural Crunch Burger. The menu says:

    pimento cheese, smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, stacked with house chips

    So. Delicious.

  • I recently added a new podcast (Seldom Used Reserve) into the rotation. It fills my Clemson void since the CBS podcast I listen to has gone exclusively SEC instead of covering the sport in general. But also, it made me want to care about something enough to where I could have my own podcast. My passions are video games, having a constant stream of music playing, and Clemson football. I love consuming all three. But I’ve never been a big “creative” person and certainly don’t have an uncommon angle that isn’t already being covered elsewhere. So off to the back burner you go, not-so-unique idea!
  • Speaking of football… it’s back! I can officially cross my Clemson football resolution off the list as I went to my first game in Clemson since 2013. My dad and I used two of the four tickets, sold the remaining two, and watched Clemson beat Wofford 49-10. My seats are perfect! 2015CUvsWofford
    This week is Appalachian State and I’m going with my dad and San Diego.
  • Work is… an adventure. I just crossed off my first six months of being a supervisor and I’m still on the fence. I’m good at my job. Part of that is because I take pride in what I do and try to outwork others. The other part is because I’m confident in myself and truly believe I can do a better job than you or anyone else. Which makes delegating tasks to others one of the hardest things to do for me. I’m a hands on person. But that’s not what managing is about. And I struggle with that everyday.
  • Dial Tones by As It Is is hitting me just right at the moment. It’s a perfect mix of aggressive without being too scream-y. I just stumbled across them on Spotify and I can’t stop listening now. I’m convinced that no matter what genre of music I’m listening to at any given point in my life, a really good pop punk song is always going to be my fallback to take me to my happy place

It’s been 14 years since 9/11. That’s incredibly hard to comprehend. Remember to be thankful today of where you live and the people in your life.

    Those ARE good seats. Hope our seats in Louisville are just as good!

    And I do remember 9/11. Crystal-clear. Hard to believe it’s been 14 years. Bless those who died and the ones left behind.
