DC’s Good

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

After a ridiculously enjoyable summer of travel (see prior post, and maybe pictures coming to flickr someday) I’ve arrived in Washington, D.C. I’d been told it’s a fun city with a lot of young people around. I was a little worried about the lack of mountains over 10,000 feet. Everything so far has exceeded my […]

Wait for Me

It kills me not to know this but I’ve all but just forgotten what the color of her eyes were and her scars or how she got them … One thousand miles away there’s nothing left to say but so much left that I don’t know -Rise Against When I made the decision to move […]

Worth the Fighting For

Monday, August 4th, 2008

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

I moved to Park City, UT almost exactly 18 months ago. I’d been here for three weeks before — enough to know that it’s the ideal combination of small mountain town and cosmopolitan interest. We beat the socks off of Aspen or Jackson for limiting our yuppieness (thank you Church of Latter-Day Saints for scaring […]

Today is the first day of the rest of my life, as the saying goes, and the first of 365 days of being 24 years old. 24-year-old Tom doesn’t feel very different than 23-year-old Tom. But I have to admit my place in the world has changed dramatically. I haven’t “just graduated from college.” I […]

So nobody ever told you, baby how it was going to be So what’ll happen to you, baby guess we’ll have to wait and see… I was amused when my roommate, friend, and co-worker Ben Dilts decided upon being hired as the second employee at our company that his appropriate title was “Only Technology Officer”… […]
