  • Jumping the Freight Trains

    Today’s story is dedicated to my good friend Austin. I moved from Boston to Austin my freshman year of high school and of course had no friends here. On the very first day I made friends with the people who remain my best friends to this day, and I consider that to be perhaps the…

  • Boston

    I’m heading out to Boston for a few days, starting today. What does that mean to you? It means that I’ll probably be lazy with updates because I just had to buy the world’s smallest laptop. It’s extremely portable, of course, but is also nearly impossible to type long posts on. Nevertheless, I’m going to…

  • Working out for Wimps

    Are you interested in working out, but have no idea how? That’s where I was until a year and a half ago. I avoided the gym because I was so clueless about what to do there that I didn’t want to make a fool of myself. Looking information on the internet is almost pointless, because…

  • The Great American School Bus Conversion: Part 2

    The Great American School Bus Conversion: Part 2

    I was just thinking about fifteen minutes ago, “I don’t think I’ve ever personally used the word foist before”. Not that I remember every word I’ve said, necessarily, but I think I’d remember if I said foist. Today I resolve to use the word foist at least once in a natural context – so watch…

  • Raw Food Update #1

    Hola, Jovenes. I recently switched over to a primarily raw food diet. I’ve since modified it to include Ezekiel products. Why? Because a) they’re awesome and b) I don’t yet have my dehydrator, so there’s no other bread products I can eat. Poor me. Since I switched over, the polyphasic sleep schedule has been going…

  • How to Be Happy. Always.

    Ok folks… I’m gonna break it down for you Dr. Phil style today, and talk about happiness. Now, first of all – I don’t see why happiness is always priority number one. “Do whatever makes you happy”, they say. “Yeah, but is she HAPPY?”. Who says this is the holy grail? Personally, I think giving…

  • How I Became a Professional Gambler

    I had never gambled before and knew nothing about it, but I’d gotten too many e-mails like it. I was at my parents house for winter break during my first year at UT, and I was bored. “Free $50 just for downloading our casino!” Hmm. That doesn’t seem very risky. I might as well download…

  • Tynan Goes to School

    Where can you find me at 2pm on a Thursday? If you guessed by the pool being fed peeled grapes by the Swedish bikini team, you’ll be surprised to hear that you’re wrong. No, really. You’re wrong… At least this Thursday. Actually, my friend Hayden.. WAIT… this is an important but totally unrelated sidenote :…

  • Tynan to Rock the Olympics

    I think it’s pretty obvious that out of the many olympic games, only one is the true king. I wouldn’t even mention it, since I’m sure we’re all in agreement here, but I’m feeling crazy, so let me put it out there : Curling. What a sweet sport. I’m not all that into sports usually…

  • Valentine’s Day News

    I don’t really like writing short updates, but there are too many little things going on to write separate posts. First, I’ve designed some cool t-shirts, hats, and other items to facilitate displaying of BtyB pride. Even if you don’t have BtyB pride yet, the designs are cool enough that you’ll want to wear them…
