Yesterday I let slip my horrible secret to my wife: I'll be 45 next month and I still refer to my "play clothes" and "school clothes" #xp
Unsurprisingly, I own all of these and most are still in pretty heavy rotation for me today...but...Mother Love Bone is not grunge! #xp
I came back to my car today to find this duck on the dash. I don't know who he is or where he came from, but Cmdr. Quacks is the new boss of road trips. #xp
Related to my prior message, I'm constantly trying to expand my team's hiring funnel to include folks that don't look solely like this guy (see picture)...we have a bunch of formal places that we seek, but what informal places should I post in? #xp
Hey all, some of my teams are looking for POs, SEs, QEs, and DBEs. If you're looking to work on cool projects with (in my totally unbiased opinion) amazing teammates and leaders, email me! I'm jerlance and the last part is @QuickenLoans.com #xp
Today's afternoon energy boost brought to me by an incredibly fortunately timed delivery by @roosroast ... Badass Women Blend ♥️☕ #xp
We bought a new coffee grinder this morning. This means we spent the morning playing with the new coffee grinder.
I'm not saying that I'm over-caffeinated, but a few cups of coffee, a few double espressos, and an ill-advised energy drink later, and I *might* have a problem. #xp
If you're like me, you've seen folks mentioning Ted Lasso and been like "it's a show, settle down"
I was wrong. 8 episodes in and I'm very concerned that I'm running out. Imagine "Major League" only with heart and without the problematic cheap gags. #xp
Fuck Thursday sneak rebus puzzles all the way into the sun!
(But yeah, okay, it was both cute and clever today...but...I'm still mad) #xp
If you just can't wait for tomorrow's episode then check out this preview of Jer taking out his frustrations on multiple states (but especially Texas).
In this episode, we help a listener navigate the decision to interview someone you've worked with who previously had some challenges.
Listen. I'm gonna need y'all to handle your business, get your vaccine, and get your shit together. I need this whole pandemic thing under control by September so I can go to Riot Fest, you hear? Tighten up! #xp
Me: "Hey, I've named my island...it's JERmany!"
Jordan: "Really? Not Douche-land?"
If there's anything that I've learned about myself from movies of the 80s and 90s, it's that I'm a sucker for an impassioned speech. I suspect I'm especially susceptible because I'm so envious of the ability to rouse enthusiasm in that way--it mystifies me. #xp
