To Wear the Polo or Not

3 Jan

As I head back to school in the New Year, I realize that I tend to be a pretty uptight guy…always have to get things done early, need to always look presentable, little time for fun and little humor when deadlines are approaching. One of the big testaments to me being uptight is the way I dress. A lot of my friends wear t-shirts or sweatshirts on a daily basis. I, on the other hand, do not. I prefer to wear polos (unless, of course, it’s a dress-down day for me…like Sunday). But why? Why do I feel the need to wear that polo everyday? Continue reading

The Great Rivalry

2 Jan

A quick note about DailyDilemmas123…the posts might start to get a little shorter now that I’ll be going back to school. However, my goal is still to write one quality post per day.

If anyone follows football out there…even the smallest bit…they know there’s going to be a good game this afternoon between the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers. I’m definitely a Packer’s fan…which is totally wrong since I live in Chicago. But, I like to do things my way…and for me, liking the Packer’s is my way. Continue reading

My 2011 Resolutions

1 Jan

This isn’t really a dilemma…I discussed the dilemma of New Years Resolutions earlier today. Either way, I figured that I should have some resolutions for the New Year…and try to follow them. So, these may not be the greatest, nor the most creative, but they definitely resemble what I’d like to do/change in 2011 (they are in no particular order). Continue reading

Where did the Time Go?

31 Dec

It feels like just yesterday I was driving home from school with that wonderful feeling of relief- no school for the next two weeks! Yet, today, there are just a few days until I’m going back to school. Where did all that time go? Those 14 days went by so fast! The feeling of time passing by quickly isn’t limited to Winter Break though. Whether that feeling comes from waking up to the alarm clock or looking at the clock at night and realizing you’ve been watching mindless reality TV for the past three hours, it’s a feeling we all know too well.

Catching Up through Meeting Up

30 Dec

Life. It tends to get in the way of what we really want to do. Sometimes, life gets in the way of hanging out with friends. One of my best friends ended up moving away…like…moved to an entirely different state in an entirely different part of the country (moved to Texas from Illinois). As you can imagine, we ended up losing contact for a while and resorted to texting and Facebook (or MySpace back in the day). As you can imagine, that’s not exactly the same as seeing them every day and talking with them. Continue reading

Time to Get my Feet Wet…

29 Dec

As if I don’t already have enough to do, I’ve decided to start a blog- one that I want to update just about every day. Some might call me crazy (especially those that know me and my hectic schedule), but I have a pretty solid reason for starting this. Each one of us face dilemmas throughout every day, things we feel the need to comment on and maybe even complain about (especially me). By writing about the dilemmas that face me (and most likely yourself), I’ll be able to put my thoughts out there while hopefully helping some people along the way. Continue reading
