Why I Marched

Like most Americans, I’ve been distraught since the election last year. For the second time in my life, the majority of votes were not heard, and the minority candidate won. I know I needed to do something. To be more involved, I just wasn’t sure how. When I heard about the Women’s March on Washington

Trump

Man. What an absolutely shitty couple of weeks it’s been. Donald Trump winning the election was nothing short of a punch in the gut. I’ve been able to sum up some of my emotions about the election in the following gifs. Trump is going to be an absolute train wreck for this country. White supremacists and the KKK

Best of 2014

2014 is slowly coming to a close. It’s been a good year. Ali and I did some traveling, hung out with friends, spoiled our niece and nephews some more, saw family, and a few weddings. Our biggest news of course is that Ali and I built and moved into our dream home in New Braunfels,

Wish I Was Here

When Zach Braff first announced his Kickstarter campaign to fund his new film, Wish I Was Here, I think I donated within the first hour or two. I’m a big fan of Scrubs, and Garden State is one of my favorite movies. It was a no brainer to be a part of this campaign and

The kid’s table

I was home in New Jersey for this past Christmas, and a big part of Christmas in our family is celebrating with my extended family on my mother’s side. It became known as “St. Andre Christmas”. My grandmother had four children, and seven grandchildren. In the beginning it was relatively easy for all 16 or

Dealing with email

If you’re anything like me you probably get a lot of email, both work and personal. How do you manage your inbox? DO you manage your inbox? I can’t stand a messy inbox (Ali’s inbox drives me insane). A cluttered inbox is bad for many reasons. The biggest one is that it makes you feel
