So, where have I been?

I know some people have been wondering “what the heck happened to Darren?”

Well, I’ve been busy.  Really busy.  Really, really busy.

Just to recap.  I am taking two grad school classes to try and finish my masters in Public Relations sometime this decade.  I also am the boys and girls varsity soccer coach at a high school here in Denver.  I also was roped into becoming the newspaper teacher/advisor/publisher at the high school.  And I’m also starting a new P.R. business.  We signed the lease this week and have been working on business plans, operating agreements, getting EINs and bank accounts.  Everything except P.R.

Needless to say it’s been a little crazy.  But I still read everyday.  I follow Dave and his American Idol recaps.  I still tune into Stacy to catch up on the latest news about hedgehog porn.

But I am making some changes to streamline my day.  I won’t be reading Ann Coulter anymore now that she’s taken up high diving off the deep end.  I won’t be covering too many sports anymore (unless they beg me to cover Broncos…and I mean down on their knees begging).  I’ll only be taking one grad school class a term cause more than one sucks.  And I plan on trying to post at least once a day.

It’s not a promise, but I promise to try.  Besides, I still post more than Mr. Mom who, of course, posts today for the first time in years.

I do have a big soccer game tonight up in Broomfield at 7:00p.  We’ll see what my girls can do.

Think of this as my Christmas letter…except more of a St. Patrick’s Day letter.

I owe y’all an apology

I’ve been swamped under two grad school classes, teaching newspaper class, coaching soccer, and starting a business.

Needless to say I’ve been really busy….So busy that I forgot to go to this!!!!

Missing RMBB is punishable by, well, um, probably shots.  Lots of shots.

Sorry folks! I’ll definitely be there next time!

So I have this huge final paper due in my grad school class, along with a power point presentation.

Have I finished it yet?  Not a chance, but there’s still plenty of time to get it done.

Yea right!  Time to get to work…..right after this game of solitaire

So I got this paper I gotta write for my grad school class.  It’s long.  Gotta finish that before I can play anymore.  Back in awhile.

Thoughts on Grad School

As much as I complain, I do like going to grad school. I like learning new stuff, but if I have to hear the words “Postmodernism”, or “paradigm” I might just freak out. It’s not that I don’t appreciate the lessons learned, but I dream of a class that is a “tell it like it is” class. A class where folks don’t feel they have to use the biggest, oddest words possible.

In “tell it like it is” class “paradigms” will only be used when talking about making change.

Way more interesting and productive doing it that way.
