I think it's time that I reveal something. Something that I probably should've made clear at the start of this trip so you could've kept a running tab of what I wanted to accomplish in my two weeks in Europe. Something I like to call "a bucket list." Take a...

Close your eyes for a moment and think about the coolest interview you've ever seen. Remember the setting, the questions asked, the easy laughs being enjoyed by both interviewer and interviewee, and how it felt like you were there, like you were all old friends.

Hey everyone,

It's your new favorite soccer player of all time, Jimmy Conrad, and below is the unsuspecting picture I took of the person who sat behind me on my nine-hour flight to Warsaw from NYC. Well, I thought it was unsuspecting. Why is she staring right at the camera?...
