It’s the playoffs!

I’m a huge hockey fan, so best believe come this time of year, I’m spending a lot of time in front the 46″ flat screen watching the Stanley Cup playoffs. I entered a couple of hockey pools this year, so it’s that more exciting.

A little disappointed though, since the Habs (Montreal Canadians) got crushed by Boston. I was at the fourth game, and it was a pretty sad sight…

I can’t root for the Bruins, it’s in my blood, so my picks for the second round are the Canes, the Caps (even though Malkin is my favorite player right now), the Red Wings and the Canucks.

Let’s end this with some Ovechkin magic!

While I’m enjoying my internship, I really miss the whole “running and relying on your own business all the time.” No matter how hard I work in that 9 to 5 gig, no matter how much effort or how many extra hours I put in, the pay slip is still the same.

Took second place in the Tyler Cruz XY7 challenge

Tyler Cruz ran another one of his Affiliate Marketing Challenge in January; it was number 7.
