Fancy Text & Favicons

I was sending an email to a friend today for her birthday. I wanted to do something fancy, but didn’t have time to make a customized image in Photoshop. I came across this cool text generator. Check it out: http://cooltext.com/

Here’s an example that took me 10 seconds to make:

Also, very cool… last week I made a favicon for this blog. See the little icon next to the tab in your browser for this window? It’s called a favicon. If you want to make your own, you can do so here: http://www.favicon-generator.org/

UMD Smith EMBA – Cohort 9

UMD Smith School EMBA Cohort 9

UMD Smith School EMBA Cohort 9 – Dinner at Redwood in Bethesday, Md., on Jan. 31, 2015

This past weekend, I got together with my friends from b-school for dinner and a reunion of sorts. It’s been almost five years since we graduated with our executive MBAs from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. Time sure flies, but our ties remain strong. We typically see each other at various school-sponsored events throughout the year, and we schedule our own social gatherings quarterly.

Snow…

Snowy day at Van Munching Hall

Snowy Day at Van Munching Hall

They warned us that this would be a bad winter! So far, not too much snow at UMD, but we’ve had a lot of days with what we in Maryland like to call a “wintery mix.” For me, bad weather means getting up extra early (almost every day) to make sure that we have any delay/closing announcements posted on our Smith School website and social media by 6 a.m. Since we have b-school classes in Baltimore, D.C., and Shady Grove on all days of the week, we have to make special posts for our students who aren’t following the College Park schedule.

The best part about the snow? I took some great pics for social media. And I got more than 100 likes and more than 1,000 views on a short 11-second video I posted on Facebook with the snow in front of Van Munching Hall.
