I’m very happy to announce that after being almost five years in the works, I’m officially graduating from the University of North Dakota with my Masters of Business Administration on Friday, August 3rd. When I first started my MBA classes back in 2002, it had been just over a year since I graduated from UND […]
Last week marked the 10 year anniversary Flood of 1997 in Grand Forks. Local and regional media outlets have been featuring coverage for at least several months now, often providing day-by-day flashbacks of the events that transpired. Somewhat surprising to me, Minnesota Public Radio seems to have some of the best online resources on their […]
Google Docs Rocks
I’ve been able to put more time into my independent study over the last few weeks. While that’s plenty of work for me, I’ve decided to do a little experiment during the process: dump Microsoft Word and instead write it online using Google Docs. So far, I like Google Docs. A lot. I love being […]
This past weekend, the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux hockey team played our arch rivals, the Minnesota Gophers. It was some of the best hockey I’ve seen this year, and in case you missed it, featured an amazing goal by UND player Robbie Bina: Jeff Frazee was the unfortunate goalie on the receiving end […]
All throughout school I was a pretty good writer, although I didn’t appreciate it at the time. I won several essay writing contests in elementary school and often had my short stories read in front of the class by my English teacher in high school – an absolutely fabulous way to encourage a self-conscience teenager. […]
I’m Finishing my MBA
For the last four years (holy crap, I thought it was just three), I’ve been chipping away at my MBA degree at UND. While I finished my final course last summer, I still have one thing left: my independent study. I actually started working on this final project in the spring of 2005, but delays […]
Summer Class – Done!
About an hour ago I turned in my last final of my graduate school career. After a small setback in May, I now have the three elective credits I need to graduate. The really cool thing about this final was that I didn’t even have to go to class to take it. Because Management & […]
Summer Class is a Go!
It appears that I am all set to take my final MBA class after my incident last Friday. I spoke to the instructor, Dr. Duane Helleloid, this morning and received the syllabus via email. The title of the class is Management of Technology, and it sounds like it will be very interesting (in a business […]
Well, I’m officially a bonehead. It was just yesterday afternoon when I turned my research paper for Intermediate Accounting II – the last thing I had to turn in this semester. More than that, it marked the end of my last semester of MBA classes. Or so I thought. Late this afternoon I went to […]
Casey and I are at home tonight, just relaxing. We’re watching the Fighting Sioux play the Gophers in the Frozen Four right now. So far, it’s been a great game. We have a small buffer built up on our Tivo, so we’re not quite watching live TV. A few minutes ago we heard a big […]
