A few weeks ago I went to my cousin’s high school graduation. While she was excited graduation had finally come, she did confide in me that the last few months had been very stressful for her – trying to satisfy her teachers, her parents, her friends, her coaches, herself, all while searching for the right college and preparing to be on her own. While listening to her drone on and on about how hard it was to be a high school senior it suddenly hit me…that’s what my job is like. That’s how I can explain what I do to other people and have them actually understand it.

Well it looks like I am the new guy here at Plattform. Or at least I was three weeks ago when I started. Since then they have hired several others.

Where an adult can be a kid! Last Thursday PlattFormers gathered together in a not-so-faraway place where we were all able to bring out the inner child in ourselves. Our annual all company meeting was held at the huge, hidden, entertainment center gem (as much sense as that makes) of Johnson County, Power Play.
Two weeks ago, I traipsed off to see an acupuncturist that a friend had suggested. Was I in bad health? No, but between you and me -- I’d always wanted to try it.
