a day in the life… and, let’s talk time hacks.

Someone recently told me I had poor time management skills.  Um…  I almost laughed.  If attending grad school full-time while working a full-time job or training for a 140.6 triathlon while working a full-time job have taught me anything, it’s been incredible time management skills.…
