A New Schnikism: Ken

I’ve got a great job. But, it’s hard work. And tonight, I stayed late, frustrated that some seemingly simple task was taking me forever and keeping me from spending time with my loved ones. So frustrated, was I, when I left work that in my head I was talking to myself as I walked to…

Why Won’t You Let Me Give You Money?

I’ve been working with an organization though my workplace. We (my company) have been trying to find a way to offer some sort of sponsorship or partnership, and since the budget was tight, I’ve been exploring it on my own before presenting it to those who sign the checks.

Moving Poor Customer Service… Out

I recently had an experience that left me so perplexed that I still have no idea how this happens to people or how it isn’t more widely reported… I helped a friend move from Seattle to Portland. Seems like it should be easy, right? Order one of the many truck services, pick it up in…

To The Moon, Alice.

*blows off the dust* I haven’t blogged in 2012 over here. Wow. (I’ve been focused on posting a daily quote and daily photo over at schnik.it I could say that I have been extremely busy, and It would be true, but I looked back and I have written 14 other posts about being busy in…
