HUMANS OF THE PFISTER | OCTOBER 2016 | Fear Edition | “Through Thick or Skin”

HUMANS OF THE PFISTER | OCTOBER 2016 | Fear Edition | “Through Thick or Skin”

I really hate seeing anything pierce through skin.  Of course, I date a medical resident who loves watching videos of anything gross.  And he does surgery 4 or 5 times a day.  But even when I get blood drawn, I don’t care about the pain–just don’t let me see it.  Like in the first episode of […]

HUMANS OF THE PFISTER | OCTOBER 2016 | Fear Edition | Pius XI High School Blutender Happy Hour

At a recent Blutender event for Pius XI High School, where I taught English for ten years, I met up with some of my old colleagues and their friends and supporters.  They were raising money for the Hank Raymonds Scholarship Fund.  When Mr. Raymonds died (he was the Marquette University basketball coach and athletic director […]

HUMANS OF THE PFISTER | OCTOBER 2016 | FEAR EDITION | “Rationalizing Away Your Fears”

I’m off to a late start–writing the article on Happy was surprisingly difficult–but I’m here to present the first of the October edition of HUMANS OF THE PFISTER.  If you’ve been following HOTP, you’ll remember that I’ve already shared dozens of Human stories about life, liberty, happiness, augustness, and education.  This month . . . wait for […]
