Uplift Desk

I’m back and I started a YouTube channel! For my first video, I shared my initial thoughts on my new sit/stand desk from The Human Solution.

I wanted to touch on one thing I didn’t mention in the video: customer service. I contacted The Human Solution via chat a few times with questions regarding certain parts. They were very responsive and answered my questions quickly. I sent a message after business hours, and they responded first thing in the morning. In fact, I ordered my desk in the evening with some custom requests. They called me the next morning to verify and started production on my desk. Later that day I got another call. They had a truck heading to Houston, and would I mind having my desk delivered the next day. I ordered my desk on Wednesday evening and had the desk setup by Friday evening! I had a good feeling when I saw the company is based in Austin, Texas. Can’t beat local.

Funny// A Lot Of People Are Enjoying This Comparison Of Kanye West And Freddie Mercury’s Singing After Kanye proclaimed that he is “the greatest living rock star on the planet,” the rest of the world let out a collective ‘ugh’ accompanied by a fierce eye roll. I love Queen and Kanye is not even in the same building, let alone on the same level, as Freddie Mercury. I can’t sing, but I swear I sound better than Kanye singing “Bohemian Rhapsody”.

Music // I was pleasantly surprised last Thursday when I received an email from LiveNation. I was the runner-up for the Wiz Khalifa Experience Sweepstakes. I immediately replied and became the grand prize winner gaining backstage access! It was actually my first concert experience here in Houston. I have had a few opportunities to meet bands, but it was usually just a quick hello and then a picture with the group. Being backstage was a wild experience, and one I’m sure I’ll remember for a long time. One of the coolest things was being able to look out at the packed crowd dancing and having an awesome time.
