Halloween and Missed Opportunities

Posted on October 30th, 2009 by by Jesse Michelsen

Tomorrow is Halloween and traditionally the Friday before Halloween, everyone dresses up into their Halloween costumes and go to work in them. When I was in school, it was the same deal.

Linkworthy: Pity, Pandas and a Fist Full of Dollars

Posted on October 16th, 2009 by by Jesse Michelsen

When you’re frugal, others that aren’t don’t always understand the reasons behind it. The reasons I am frugal range from thinking towards the future and valuing some things more than others. I’d rather spend more money on my family than on buying lunch out every day or buying a new car every year. My Linkworthy […]
