Tag Archives: Talk Thirty To Me

A Whole New Playground

8 Jul

There is a line in an Avett Brothers song that goes:  “I want to have friends that I can trust/ That love me for the man I’ve become, not the man that I was.”

It got me thinking. So much of our younger life is spent building things: career, relationships, financial security and friendships.

I’ve got friends that I’ve had since Kindergarten. I’ve got a few very close friends that I’ve know since high school. But then I’ve also got the newbies that haven’t known me for that long. Some of those I’d consider my besties.

As I’ve grown older, and become the person that I am, my friendscape has changed considerably. When I played roller derby, I found myself with more girl friends than I’d ever had in the past combined. Now that I’m not playing anymore, there’s been another shift where I find myself spending time with the kids from Twitter.

There is something to be said about sharing a history with the friends I’ve had forever. There’s also something to be said for the ones who take me for who I am now.

Am I alone in this? Does anyone else’s friendscape shift with their changing lifestyles? Friends are one of the greatest joys in life. How do you guys mix the old with the new?

Let’s Talk Thirty at Ignite Denver 7

2 Jul

It’s true. Sport and I just submitted a spark idea for Ignite Denver 7 on July 24th. Crazy, huh?! I’ve gotta say, the idea of giving a presentation in front of some of Denver’s most creative and brilliant minds makes me sweat–like, the crotch puddle variety.

I’m picturing this grandiose event where you have to be at the top of your game or else (which includes snickering, jeering, glaring, judging, etc.)! Oh, man. Why did I hit the submit button? Okay. Deep breaths…deep breaths…deep breaths. This is going to be epic. We are going to rock this out.  Besides, we have your support. Or at least we’d better.

Nonetheless, we are hoping to Talk Thirty with a larger population of Denver.  How exciting is that? A whole city of people just like you. Just like us. Here’s what we need from you. Submission cut off is today, and then, the good folks over at Ignite Denver are going to put the spark ideas to a vote. If you want to see TTTM take this discussion to a whole new level, vote! That’s all it takes.

If you want to stay in the know about our pending rock-the-house status you can follow Ignite Denver on Twitter or on Facebook.

And don’t forget to vote!

XOXO
