Google Searching for Stanford Essays

Here's a disturbing trend... people are finding my side by Googling "What matters to you most and why," which is one of the Stanford MBA essays.  I posted my essay because I thought it was an interesting question.

What purpose might it serve someone esle to check out my essay?  Your answer is in you, people...  I don't have it.  Think for yourself... there are no Crib Notes for personal essays.

When I was a senior at Fordham, me and my roommates played on an intramural softball team with half of the varsity basketball team.  One game, I hit a walkoff homer to win a game, and the whole team, including the guys from the varsity basketball team lined up along the thirdbaseline to slap me five.  Jason Harris, TJ... they were lined up to congratulate me... after all those games I showed up with my face painted to cheer them on.  Ok, so they were linking b/c their founder was featured in the article, and I'm not wearing facepaint, but nonetheless, the fact that the article was linked to on the Six Apart (the company that hosts this very blog) website... well...   it leaves me stupidly giddy, that's all.  In fact, I'm in such a good mood because of everything...  the article, the picture, the invite to the Learning Annex, the fact that the ubercool folks who are right at the heart of blogging are reading articles from a Long Island newspaper on some goofball blogging analyst...  I hardly even noticed the jury duty questionaire that came in the mail.  In fact, I'm more than happy to fill it out.  Call me for jury duty.  Sequestor me.  Give it your best shot.  You're not wiping the smile off my face, punks.  I think I'm going to go eat a pomegranate.

I think this guy was just pointing out what blogs were and their growing popularity... but my favorite part is that he identifies himself as a "guybrarian."  (male librarian)   That's hilarious.

This is going to be big.

Its an ok picture... I'm not particularly photogenic.  The setting is a bit random...  I mean, like, why am I walking around Madison Avenue with my laptop?  :)    In hindsight, I probably should have had the Find My Path site up on the laptop, not my site.  Already, two people have sought out my site by typeing in "This is going to be big.  I can feel it" in Google.  Now that's interesting.

5:23PM... no Newsday article yet...

Tomorrow is the day my 2nd Newsday appearence gets published...   the website was supposed to be up today, but it hasn't been updated yet.   I'm DYING to see it...   Very exciting stuff.
