Last Tuesday

Last Tuesday is set to release Distractions and Convictions on July 2nd. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to their earlier albums and knowing Carl Emmons while at Messiah. Now, I’ll finally have a chance to own their new album when it’s released.

Two of the songs from the new album are now available for your listening pleasure at Last Tuesday

Messiah College @ Solar Splash

I just found out that Messiah College placed 4th in the recently held Solar Splash competition.

Messiah has been racing in various events since 1997. I first joined the Solar Racing team as a first year student at Messiah. Essentially, Genesis was all about a group of students who got together to build and race a car that was powered entirely with solar energy.

Not to brag, but our team did so well, that we not only walked away with the top technical innovation award, but also had the lightest car (~ 800lbs) and the fastest car (~ >70mph) in the event. Although the results, often don’t speak about the hardships that a racing team goes through, each member definitely learns something over the course of the racing season.

If there’s one thing I learnt as being part of the team, it’s definitely that the little dogs in the race can make all the difference.

Congratulations Genesis II.

One Year to the CISA

I got one year to start preparing for the CISA. Somehow, I feel that next year this time, I’ll be wishing that I was able to stick to that one year plan. I’ve been scouring websites for more information on how the CISA exam was this past weekend. The general consensus has been that most people found the exam content to be harder than expected.

My plan for preparing for the CISA is to blog my progress through the various chapters.

Class of 2004

Congratulations to the class of 2004. I had a chance to visit Messiah College, my alma mater, and could not help reminiscing. Nevertheless, Messiah still managed to keep the rhythm going and definitely had another successful graduation ceremony.
