Greatest thrill

I recently received an email from a former student. Part of the email read

Do you remember the website (linked) I made for my foster parents for our class last fall? I have some good news to share — they found their first customer, who found the website on their own! Isn’t it crazy that the website is doing exactly what it is supposed to be doing!! I cannot believe that my product is actually turning out to be useful. 

To me, this is one of the biggest complements that can be paid as an instructor. To know that a project used for class is implemented, out in the wild and being used brings a definite level of satisfaction.

Receiving this email made my day.

Interests Personal

Motorcycle ownership

I have a feeling I’ll be coming back to this post every so often to update it but wanted to get the list down now while I was thinking about it.

Unlike my brother, I don’t have a picture of every vehicle I’ve owned and detailed records of every aspect of every vehicle. Don’t get me wrong, I wish I did, really I do, I just didn’t get that particular gene.


Today everyone is Irish

To all my Irish brothers and sisters, be it for one day or for a lifetime, I thought I’d share some traditional Irish blessings (or parts as the case may be). I’ve never had the DNA tested, but I’ve been told I have Irish ancestry, and that’s what I prefer to believe.
