"I Took a Pill in Ibiza", Getting What You Want, and Discontentment

Mike, after his first few hits at the age of 22, had it all. Or so he thought. He had money, girls, success, fame, but something strange happened when he finally got what he wanted. He wasn’t happy.

The Best Summer of My Life

It was my sophomore year of college at NWC now the University of Northwestern St. Paul. I said yes to go on a Summer Training Project, not really knowing what I had signed up for. Andrew, this staff guy who at points felt like a “used car salesmen”, got me to sign up. I always wondered why Andrew really pushed me to go (and had been now for almost two years), and it was later that summer when I realized why.  My life would forever be changed.
