I’m a big fan of gambling. I’m not one to lose massive amounts of money playing poker in Vegas, but I do love March Madness brackets, fantasy sports, and really anything else where I can wager a small amount of cash in order to win bracing rights over my friends, which is why I’ve been on the hunt for some ways to…

Learning a new language is hard. After eight years of French, I was an abysmal failure at the language until I spent a month in the country using it regularly.

A few years ago I started sending “Nice to Meet You!” emails to people after they had given me a card at a networking event.

Without fail, the first link in my Google Search results is never the thing I’m actually looking for. As a result, my typical move is to open all of the search results that look like they might potentially be a decent fit into their own tabs on my browser and then go through them one by one.
