Fixed the blog

So I recently discovered (thanks to tip by Jeremy) that my comments were not working since I updated to my custom theme. I did a bit of searching on Google and finally found this Edited some of the html code and now it appears that the comments are working.

Work is great.

Work is great. Work lately has been exhausting. Exhausting in a very good way. My main role as business development manager is shared with some sales and some marketing activities as well. Lately, must be due to spring time, I've been doing pretty much all sales. When I started, we got a few leads a day, now were getting 5 times the number or more per day! I'm seeing big and small leads come our way and it's truly exciting. With each lead takes some time to review their site and do some recon, setup a sales demo, answer some questions, etc. I'm able to close a good number of these leads and we're laying out some improvements to the site to make it easier to convert users directly online. We are growing. We are adding new features. We are working effectively and efficiently as a team. It blows my mind that in a couple of days, I'll have been here for 6 months. I swear it still feels surreal, like just last week that I left. Time flies. I'm living on my own, far away from my family and the friends I've grown up all my life with. I'm making new friends here, and finding new exhilarating hobbies (autox). I'm learning new things at work everyday and getting better at it too. I couldn't have imagined enjoying what I do and the people I work with so much. This has been one of the best opportunities I've had and I'm enjoying every minute of it. It was a scary decision to make, but I'm glad I chose this path.

A beautiful weekend

What a perfect weekend weather-wise. On Saturday I went up to Santa Rosa to my buddy's house to work on my car. I drove the hour north with the windows down and radio off. It was so enjoyable, to escape the city. We worked on the car, test drove it, and bbq some good food.

Sunday was autocross day. It was 65 and sunny, I actually got a lil color on my nose and arms. I spent all day from the first run group until fun runs. The new parts I installed on the car made a significant improvement on the cars handling and I really had fun on the course.

Ended the day chillin with the local mazda gang at Starbucks. Always sure to have a good laugh when with the guys.
