It has been way too long. Almost three years since my last post on this blog. There is so much that has happened since the Fall of 2014. Here is a quick recap:
- Late Fall 2014 – Family moved back to Delaware from Pittsburgh
- Summer 2015 – Interned with CPA firm and got offered full-time job for after graduation
- Fall 2015 – Spring 2016 – Wrote my senior theses and finished my last year of college
- May 2016 – Received my Bachelors degree in accounting and married my beautiful wife.
- Summer 2016 – Worked for a manufacturing company (potato chips!)
- Fall 2016 – Present – Working for that CPA firm and enjoying Roanoke with my wife
That was a pretty high level review, but thought I should let everyone know what has happened since my last post.
So, until the next time I post (most likely another “iPhone Photo of the Week” post), here are some pictures to hold you over.

Also, I have started another blog. It is titled “An Accountant’s Life,” but is not limited to my experience as a public accountant (not that exciting), but also my takes on current events and things that I care about. So if you would like to take a look at my content over there, that would be cool! Otherwise, stay tuned for more “Macro Masterpieces.”
As a fan of Apple products, in the past couple years I have become familiar with the concept of live blogging where people at a special event, particular Apple product announcements, will upload live updates, including pictures, to a specified page so that others can experience the event in near real-time.
So, I have decided to do this very same thing with the Student Activities Photography Expo that I entered my two pictures into. I have created a page on my blog that will host this “live feed” and I will try to update it every five minutes at the least with thoughts and pictures of the event. The event starts tomorrow, February 28th at 8pm EST. If you are interested in the event and seeing if I win, please visit the page during the event or check back after the events completion at 10pm.
Thanks for following along and wish me luck!
