The Importance of Cream Cheese

Today, Microcredit Initiative held another Perfecto's. Even though all went well, for the sake of margins we did not get cream cheese. This might not sound like a big deal, but protesters were vocal and not only did they not buy a bagel, they gave us some bad rep too.

Lesson: Keep the customer happy, because it's better to slim down profits by a percent or two instead of losing actual customers and potential others forever.

Results: $54 dollars in profits, $5o dollar cost, 8 bagels not sold.

Why Blog?

I asked myself the same question when I finally decided to post after having a page. Initially I had gotten a bug, "I had to learn CSS" and read on design, went through tutorials and in the end I never got on to posting.

Today I see myself forgetting my last moves, the struggles, successes and failures. I feel the need to actually embody my idles, instead of just reading their writings, in addition to record my progress and stop talking bs.

Sure, I have an SAT test tomorrow that I could be studying for, I could be reading up on Pride and Prejudice, I could be working on what people ask of me, however I don't see myself following orders in 20 years. I want to carve my path. So I will try to blog.

I begin this with the college application process in mind. I've been bugged with questions like where do I want to go? Do I need to go? Is this what's best for my life?

I hope I answer these questions through my writings, I hope you guys help me see the light. I don't know everything and this blog is most importantly for myself, a diary, that if I'm lucky will be good enough for other to read and enjoy and learn from. 

So it begins.
