  1. Men Who Stare At Goats on Quandary Peak

    One of the three times I went back to Colorado last year was to hang out with the old clan from college, specifically roommates and associated friends from that era. Ben planned it all and we had awesome time hiking, playing paintball, putt-putt golf, have some drinks, and watching movies — basically, just like old…

  2. Scenes from Colorado

    I finally broke down and bought Lightroom 3. It’s awesome and definitely worth getting (even if you have LR2). Anyway, I was in Colorado this last weekend for my college roommates wedding. It was pretty epic. I got to see some great friends from my College Days™ — many of whom I haven’t seen in…

  3. My Kind of Town, Chicago Is

    Chicago1 was awesome. I drove out with my Uncle Kit on Thursday and we got in Friday night. The was pretty much uneventful, lots and lots of flat land. We did stop by the Mississippi and take a picture!

    We spent most of Saturday working on buil…

  4. The Windy City

    Fall break is in a few days I’m taking off to visit Chicago. Well, actually Evanston, "an affluent suburban Chicago municipality on Lake Michigan on the North Shore in Cook County, Illinois directly north of the City of Chicago."

    My good friend…

  5. Almost Screwed the Pooch

    I had brunch today with Ben, Mike, and company. I happened to be talking with Mike about my classes for this semester (Mike is a fellow EE, although he graduated in May). I mentioned that I was taking Introduction to Law and Legal Systems, which i…

    Red: Route we went on twice

    It wa…

  7. Andrew Ferguson: The Final Frontier

    My friend Ben and Mike took a film studies class this past semester for their final LAIS (Language Arts and International Studies) class. Part of the goal of the class was to make an actual film and Ben and Mike wanted to make one about me.

    Bei…

  8. Last in the Cat Pack

    Back during sophomore year, I was living with Ben, Chris, Mike and Jens. We also picked up three cats: Dunstan, Kitty and Quantum…the Cat Pack. Dunstan is my cat and Quantum and Kitty were Ben’s. Last year, Kitty was hit by a car and Ben had to …

  9. Tattoo

    I was having a conversation with my flatmate Ben about tattoos. We were talking to Amie, a girl in our climbing class about her tattoos. Ben expressed interest in getting a the outline of the Periodic Table. That made sense because Ben is a Chemic…

  10. It starting last night. The idea was innocent enough and one I’ve had before: would I be better off back in Seattle at the UW. It’s a thought I’ve have times before and nothing has really come of it and nothing came of it tonight. But for whatever reason, the seed grew. Part of it…
