Is is a rainy Tuesday here in Pennsylvania, and not the nice warm kind of rain. It is cold and windy, and looks like night time even though it isn’t. You know what I’m talking about!
I got a welcomed surprise in the mail yesterday. It was my fraternity member directory. You may have already seen it if you follow me on Instagram. (hint hint) 😉 Go there: Instagram
I was told that it was backed up on the publishing end of things and that I wouldn’t receive it until sometime in January. Here we are in early December and it is here. I was approached, via phone call to order over a year ago. They told me that they would have to take some time to gather information from every member, and that it would take some time. I was OK with the wait. Because here it is:
This directory has a brief introduction followed by pictures of the members that participated, which I did. After that it has a full listing of brothers, first by chapter, then by location, and finally in alphabetical order. By now you may be wonder how big this thing is. Let me tell you that it is about 1000 pages with what I would say is size 10 font with not much spacing!
That picture does it pretty good justice. This is a nice hard back book that I will be able to keep forever and I am glad I made the purchase. I spent the whole rest of the evening thumbing through it to see who else from my chapter had their picture in. I also sent Snapchat messages to some of the brothers, showing them the book and their information. I found that there were three other brothers from my chapter that sent in information and pictures. I also found that there are quite a few brothers from the same geographic location as me. When it comes down to it, the best find of the night was finding out that my good friend from high school is a brother from the Akron Ohio chapter. I didn’t even know that. He pledged two years before me, and we have been in touch since and it has never come up. How crazy is that? I was at his wedding, he was at my wedding, and I have seen him a few other times since. Weird!
Going in another direction now, I want to ask you guys something about working from home, or remotely in any way. I guess first off do any of you do that sort of thing, in any capacity? If so give me some details if you can. I know my wife is looking for a better option for us and would love to stay home with Everett more. I have often though about it as well. Are there any tips you could offer, or places to visit? It is hard for me to think that I haven’t really been able to monetize the blog in any real way, since I do it everyday. I’m just not sure how to go about it since I’m not really selling a product or service. I know there are life blogs that make money but I don’t know the first thing about it. Maybe if any of you fine folk have insight on that and want to share, that would be A OK with me. 😀 😀
Anyway I hope you all have a great Tuesday, and I will do the same. Our year is winding down. Some may o out with a bang, others with a whimper. Either way you choose just make the best of it. I’ll be back again tomorrow, I’ll see you then. 😀 😀
