Most of us have one habit in our day that if we achieve it, it acts as a domino to other successful habits.

THUR: Congrats on 2 Years, Coach Kyle
What do you get the coach who gets KB class fired up with tasty chords and nostalgic melodies?? Why a DMB poster, of course (other grand prizes include mustache comb, Patriots socks to show off other worldly calves).

THUR: Your Core is a Hipster
You know the type.

Sitting there with their smug face. The cup of coffee that’s three dollars too expensive. The fake reading glasses that aren’t prescription. Bon Iver Red Rocks playing in their headphones. Everything cool and popular is stupid. We’re all sheep for liking it.
