I’ve drank soda since the earliest days of my memory. It’s just something everyone in my family has done. I think it’s time for me to stop. For my friends – you’ll all laugh because there’s probably never been a moment you have seen me that I didn’t have a bottle of my trusty drink of choice in hand, Mountain Dew. Why do I now think I should stop?

When I drove home yesterday I realized I didn’t have my computer so I couldn’t publish my post. It was actually about the freedom of no technology, ironic because I needed my technology to get my point across. I wrote it on paper instead.
I was instantly brought back to my childhood.
While I was in Tennessee my dad took us to a flea market. Basically, for those of you who don’t already know, a flea market is where you can buy and sell just about anything. We saw food, animals, firearms, and everything in-between for sale. One thing I wasn’t expecting to be for sale that I was able to get my hands on was a Nintendo 64 and a copy of Super Smash Bros. I finally got to hook it up today and play through the single player mode. I was instantly brought back to my childhood.
we’re basically the same guy just thirty years apart.
For the fourth of July I spent my evening with family. I’ve never spent a fourth of July with my family (outside of the immediate of course), and it was really interesting to see just how similar to them I really am. My cousins, who are about my father’s age, are without-a-doubt two of the coolest, best friends I’ve ever made. I spent a hour or more speaking with one of them and her boyfriend about everything from smoking weed to dissecting the beliefs of Adolf Hitler. The other, well, we’re basically the same guy just thirty years apart and with two different political views (but as I learned, who the hell cares?).
He made that idea.
I’m the grand-nephew of the founder of a successful Illinois based limousine service. In the businesses prime it had a stronghold on the local industry for 25 years. It’s no surprise that Uber has reached out to both of us in our lives, but never at the same time, and I never put two and two together – they wanted my uncle’s ideas. He was one of the most successful people in the industry decades before the computer exists. You know Uber’s method of undercutting people? He made that idea when he beat out the rental car industry for rides from the airport and back. How can Uber be so successful at ride sharing yet be so frowned upon by their industry competitors? They weren’t following the best business models. They’re not my uncle.
I had virtually no way of posting this
Last night I wanted to post this post but had no way to do it. During the trip to Tennessee we hit a dead zone the size of a metropolis through Ohio, so much so that I didn’t even have enough of a signal to navigate let alone post a blog post. My aunt’s house is so far outside of the city of Greeneville I barely had a reception enough to get a phone call from a potential new business opportunity or my mom. It’s safe to say that I had virtually no way of posting this. Especially when you factor in how hard I make it to sign into my blog to post, my website was having none of these strange IP addresses and insecure connections.
