We're Warming Up

The last time I wrote a blog post I was super pissed off at my new job. Just graduated from college and my reward was to sit in front of a computer all day and do "blog commenting." It basically consisted of finding articles that had to do with some sort of product that this company worked with and write a short pitch to get people to click a link. Sounds like a bunch of crap, and it was... which is why I drank eight gallons of water everyday so that I could get up and go to the bathroom every 30 minutes to kill time. Well that shit ended after about six weeks and somehow I landed a much better job immediately after that (thank you Craigslist! And on a side note, I would advise avoiding any job that seems too good to be true. If you see an ad for sports and entertainment marketing then just know that it is a scam. Do a Google search for "PAG Advertising partners" in Denver; you will see... they almost got me). Now here I am, living the post-college life in Boulder and enjoying it more than I did when I was actually in school. There's a lot to be said about being self-sufficient, only paying for essential items, taking spontaneous trips to see friends and partying for a weekend in Vegas. The only trouble is that sometimes I take it a bit too far and am still hungover on Mondays when I have to work... but that isn't necessarily a bad thing now, is it?

But things are just warming up... baseball is here, summer is around the corner and Montezuma's Revenge is about to unveil an older, more experienced team upon the City of Boulder rec softball league. As the kids say, "It's on like Donkey Kong!"

As we embark on this wonderful time of year, think of all the better things you could be doing instead of writing a silly paper or sitting in front of the TV watching Jersey Shore reruns. Let's see, there's baseball games to attend, playoff hockey and basketball games to watch, creeks to jump into (great hangover cure) and grilling to be done. If all those things don't get you stoked, then I don't know what will. Until next time, peaceout4ever.
