August 2014 SocialEngine Keeping it Rolling Update

Short Recap of August 

  • Kyle took a trip to Tijuana for a friend’s “celebration” and we still have not heard what happened. Apparently Vegas has nothing on Tijuana in the secrecy department
  • James was a guest speaker at his alma mater addressing faculty members about what is expected of students entering today’s work force. To summarize it was about: need more grit, and get them to build something/anything
  • Alex proved he was worthy of anchoring the beer pong team during the SocialEngine FAC with Room 214 (photo below)
  • Mike began harvesting the fruits (actually veggies) of his labors from the homestead and selling fresh veggies to office pass-er-buyers
  • Jason trapped a rattlesnake and charmed it safely into a bag. Nah, just kidding — would be a good story though
  • Stepan was a last minute addition to the Fantasy Football Draft and was continuously thwarted by James selecting his next draft target in front of him
