Things are swell.

I am getting to know so many great new people in my class at LM. It’s just been so amazing. I feel like I am in college all over again. It’s a great feeling. Gosh, I really don’t want it to end.

What I am really getting out of my participation in this class is that I focus too much on getting things right. When, really, there is nothing to get right. I think people just do things out of other people’s expectations of them, which is fine. But now I can actually catch myself when I start doing it, getting things right with people, that is.

On another note, I took on a bigger leadership role with Youth Technology Corps as their Chairman for the Programs Committee. That means that I will actually be working with the leaders of each of YTC’s programs, developing them and addressing any issues or concerns that the people involved with them might have. I get to work with some phenomenal people on this new role. The best thing about it is I get to make a difference in young peoples’ lives, and that, as they say in the the Visa credit card commercials, is PRICELESS…

Catching Up.

Whoah. It’s been a minute since I’ve last posted. A lot has happened since then, of course. I was in California a couple of times – in San Francisco in September and in Los Angeles in October.

San Francisco was amazing. I got to see my aunt and uncle, and they took us to Napa Valley for a day of wine tasting. One of the highlights was Francis Ford Copolla’s winery. It was absolutely stunning.

San Francisco is a great place. It is by far one of the most beautiful cities I have been to in the world.

We bought a piece of artwork (prints) from a really fabulous German born artist named Gabriele Schwibach. Check her out at www.schwibach.com

Other places you should check out in San Francisco are:

Zuni Cafe

and

The Slanted Door

And L.A. was really fun, brief, and surreal. We spent our first day in Venice Beach. Then we walked around the Santa Monica area. We drove around Bel Aire, Beverly Hills, and Malibu. I had not been to L.A. in 15 years, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how awesome it was. I was even more surprised of even harboring the idea of possibly living there. Weird. I couldn’t believe I actually contemplated on that. We shall see. I like New York City better, but L.A. is starting to grow on me.

There is so much more to write about, but I will end my post here.
