I kept hearing great things about Brooks saddles. I couldn't believe the quality would match the price. They looked so hard and uncomfortable. It was seemingly unanimous though that Brooks made the best saddles on the market. I decided to get a Brooks Swift and I'm very happy with it.
I lowered the seat just a nudge for the break in period, but after two rides it already feels comfortable. I can't wait to take it on some long trips.

After following the stock market for over 2 years, I decided to start investing. I'm paying attention to people and what drives them.

My experiment in the stock market is to put my money where my mouth is. I will succeed, because I want to fail. I want to fail at first and learn from my mistakes. I'm not afraid to lose. I'm spending my money and time that I usually blow on entertainment and instead focusing on the market.

I want to spend my lunch breaks researching instead consuming. One of my goals for this year is gain other sources of income.

Porn and Chicken was such a good time. Nothing felt awkward or douchie. It had nothing to do with sitting around watching porn at a bar. I had nothing to do with typical club creepers. It had everything to do with losing your mind to ridiculous music and having an absolute blast. Glad I went.Read More
