The Perks

You all know how much I love cities. Salt Lake isn't all that big, but anytime you get up on top of something that is the tallest building around. It just feels good. We go up on top of the Wells Fargo building every once in a while to keep sane.
The big event is in 48 hours. Things are crazy around here. Like you can't imagine. I love how people around here handle stress. It's like...ok here comes the event...let's get more stressed and make it even more difficult. That much said I am learning at a very high rate here, both the "dos" and the "don'ts" I have no idea what I am going to be doing next week at this time. Life is crazy, but I kind of like flying on the seat of my pants. Living it up.
I have been hanging out with this girl...and let's just say she has it going on. We were good friends in Jerusalem and things just kind of happened and we have been having some fun times together. If you want to know more you are going to have to call me about it...maybe that will entice you enough.
Love you all. And just remember. Go Mitt!

The Rally Office

Early in the morning, the office prepares itself for another day or coMITTment. This has been my home for the last two months. I spend more time here than anywhere.


I have a crink in my neck from tilting it to hold the phone on my ear. I don't think I ever want to use a phone again. I do get to flirt with some nice old ladies on the phone though, and that is always fun.

The Wells Fargo

The Closest I can get to the Big Apple right now.

The Office

Boxes and boxes of nonsense. The Rally is in two days and the office is basically full of boxes...not really sure what they are but they are probably important.

My Life

Have you ever felt like a monkey that does whatever someone tells you to do? Have you ever taped a phone to your head? This is my buddy Parley. One of my best friends who happens to be my coworker. He keeps me sane. The people I am working with are great. They make something that could potentially make one crazy, quite a bit of fun. The rally is coming along. My job description and what I am supposed to do changes just about every day as we try to get ready for this massive event. This week one of our responisibilites on top of coordinating with all the recruiters for the event, we became call monkeys. They asked us to get on the phone and start calling all the donors in the state, thus Paley has a phone taped to his head. I strapped it on there real good. it brought on a pretty good laugh. So I have talked to a lot of people on the phone this week. Mitt has a lot of really old people for supporters. but I have also talked to a lot of really great people that want to come to the event.
I am learning a lot about the world, and how it works. Some of the methods they take aren't always the most effective, but I have learned to respect what they want us to do, and just do it. I think a lot of the business world comes down to people having confidence and acting like they know what they are talking about that. When you do that, it is like almost automatically people respect you and think you know what you are talking about. Have you experienced that it in the business world?
At any rate, things are coming along. This is going to be an experience I will never forget. I am not sure yet if i am in to things enough to go back to Boston. I am also going after a job at a huge luxury vacations/travel company that is based in Seatlle, but they have an office in NYC. check it out.
It is a lot of fun to be here in SLC, I haven't really lived here for like 6 years, so it is fun to be here with my best buddies, and to be close to mom and dad and char (until she takes off on Sunday).
I am headed up to Jackson Hole for Labor Day to go river rafting with some of my friends. I am excited about the rafting, but even more so I am excited to eat a Billy Burger. So there's a bit of an update on my life. Love you all. Check out that is the main website for this fundraiser. SLC is the last of 42 of these going on all over the country the last week of September. Go Mitt.
