2013 In Review

by Patrick on December 31, 2013

Tweet Changes. Just gonna have to be a different man. Entering the third fourth decade of your life is certainly a milestone albeit not as big as 18, 21, and 40. However this past year has come and gone with much more change that any of my previous life milestones. This year I changed jobs, changed […]


Tweet “So things have been a little bit crazy for me right now.” I was standing in the middle of the sidewalk in Foggy Bottom, pacing up and down the same half-block of I St. outside the Metro station. I always pace when I’m on the phone. The constant movement of my legs while concentrating […]


2009 In Review

by Patrick on January 6, 2010

Tweet 2009 will be the year of the recession. My personal recession. Sure the economic recession started in late 2007 but it didn’t really hit me til the beginning of 2009; when my office laid off two employees and all of a sudden the mood around work started to change. I felt somewhat secure with […]


Tweet Remember that snowstorm we had two weeks ago? It was quite the the snowpocalypse and it was the buzz amongst my local blogger friends. Earlier this year President Obama said that we needed, “to apply some flinty Chicago toughness to this town” when it came to how the area handles it’s weather. As a […]


Why I Love MTV’s Jersey Shore

by Patrick on December 17, 2009

Tweet We all have guilty pleasures. Maybe it’s Kelly Clarkson on your iPod or Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey on a lazy night on the couch. For me I think it’s a MTV’s newest reality show disaster, Jersey Shore. When I heard that MTV was making a reality show based in the popular New Jersey […]


Tweet There was no need for resumes for this search, however they might as well come in handy. It was sad wishing Sarah a bon voyage as she moved out of Highland Street to join her fiancee in North Carolina, not only was I saying farewell to a roommate and friend, it introduced a search […]


Tweet My experiences in the backyard have not always been great. However last Monday Caroline suggested that this past weekend would be a great time to invite some friends over, grab a few beverages, and play some games. Now I’ve thrown a party at Highland Street before and I had the drill pretty much down, […]


Getting Dirty In The Backyard

by Patrick on April 23, 2009

Tweet Before I went out to that rehearsal, I was in my room with Nicole when I got a knock at the door. My roommate Sarah came up to tell me that she got her truck stuck in the backyard. The truck was stuck in our driveway behind two cars and she tried to drive […]


Birds In The Belfrey

by Patrick on March 5, 2009

Tweet So I was packing up to go home from work last night when I get a call from my roommate Caroline. She was in our kitchen cooking and she heard some strange noises in our basement. I suggested that it could be the nearby tree branches rubbing up against our windows (they do that) […]


Long Lost Relatives

by Patrick on February 27, 2009

Tweet This past weekend was all about family. This past Saturday I was having lunch with my Aunt Jackie at Coastal Flats when my mom called. It appears that a distant relative passed away in Fairfax. A delegation of uncles and aunts were going to leave Chelmsford to head down here but my grandmother was […]
