Don’t Be A Slacker: Lessons Learned From Back to the Future

img Posted November 25, 2011

I?m not joking when I say I use to dress up like Marty McFly in second grade. There I was: puffy red vest, jean jacket, white Nikes — 80s to a tee. It helped that I was awkward and had a thing for Huey Lewis and the News (see ?About the Author? above). Little did

It?s not always sunny in Philadelphia, neither literally nor metaphorically. The weather can be pretty miserable and you?re sure to run in a less-than-friendly head case now and again.

I?m a PC. Lame, huh? My experience with Apple products is limited to owning various incarnations of the iPod and using Snow Leopard for a few months while I interned at a recording studio.
