Looks like I’m starting to lose control of my life and have just been way too busy / lazy to update my blog. On Sundays when I usually write blog posts I’m always out doing something or another. Where I would ordinarily do a dedicated post on each event or day of significance, now I’m just gonna have to do one big catch up post for the last two and a half months (or I’ll never catch up). Anyway, let’s get started because I have a lot of material to gloss over. I’ve been Busy with a capital B these days. Continue reading…

Mom and Dad came to visit Dallas last week. It’s been nearly a year since they last visited Dallas (but not quite), and I’ve since moved from Las Colinas to my new home in Uptown. The last time they came they said it was way too hot so they wanted to come a bit earlier this year at the end of spring. Unfortunately, they came during the rainy season. Last year’s rainy season was really dry so I didn’t really think much of it, but I guess this year’s rainy season was in full effect. We didn’t really get any super great sunny days, there was always overcast for at least a bit of the day (and usually rain, too). The weather definitely could have been worse though, and at least it wasn’t 90+ degrees every day! Continue reading…

The weekend of April 25th was my second conference with rewardStyle. There was a volunteer schedule we could sign up for during the week to go to The Joule downtown to help set up. I signed up all of the days just to get out of the office a bit and to get away from my desk for a bit. JT, Nathan, Blake, and I went to help out on Thursday afternoon, mostly lifting things. It was a still a nice day away from the office, and we got some exercise, too. Continue Reading…

In preparation for rStheCon, the big conference my company hosts in Dallas every year, we flew in all of the internationals (our people in the London office) as well as the California office into Dallas. They were there for the whole week leading up to the con for some company bonding time. Every year we do a big team event together. This year was definitely the funnest event I’ve ever done with a company. It reminded me that rewardStyle really is one of the coolest companies to work for.

Last year was bowling. This year was field games. Drinking field games. We all got off the party buses at the LOT. We weren’t told what we were going to be getting into, but we were all giving matching shirts that said #rStheGames and each handed a delicious margarita as we walked out into a huge outdoor area of beautiful food, photo booths, picnic tables, and various stations with games set up. There was a sign that said “rS the (drinking) Olympics” with 7 games listed. I could already tell we were about to have an awesome day. Continue reading…

Something Wonderful is a one day EDM music festival hosted in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl. It featured some big name artists that I was excited to see including: Tiesto, Keys N Krates, Bro Safari, and DVBBS. The early ticket price was about $90, and I was skeptical about buying them because I wasn’t that huge into any of the artists except maybe Tiesto and Keys N Krates. But, Harrison convinced me that seeing Tiesto live is a very good experience, probably worth the ticket price alone. I decided I would get the ticket, especially considering that so many of my friends were going. Continue reading…
