Digging This Song Right Now V.26 – Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This

Music No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Her voice is so powerful. I wish I had that ability when I sing. I used to practice my signing, but even then, nothing nearly as powerful as her voice. Take a moment to listen to her singing this song live and you’ll hear it’s not just fancy editing that’s making her voice powerful. She […]

5 Things I’ve Learned After 5 Years of Marriage

ACbert, Love, Self Insight 3 Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Ask anyone and they’d tell you that they were the perfect couple. They met in high school, married in college and had two kids in their 30s. But after 25 years of marriage, they called it quits and got a divorce. This kind of story scares the crap out of me and sadly I’ve heard […]

Waiting For Annie At The Airport

ACbert, Love, Traveling No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

In my junior year of college, I did a semester abroad in Berlin, Germany with the Goethe Institute. Towards the end of my trip, Annie saved enough money from her job to come visit me for a week. I’ll never forget the moment I saw her for the first time as she came through the […]

My Love of the Team and the Game

My first business was selling old edition textbooks online through a company called DiscountedDepot. It was very lucerative for me until the bookstores, I contracted with, realized they could do the same thing and cut me out. I really enjoyed growing the business, but I also really enjoyed growing my knowledge about how to grow […]

Marriage, Three Years In

On the grand scheme of things, I’m very much a marriage newbie as I know couples who’ve been together for 30, 40, and even 50 years! But like everything in my life, I love learning, getting better, and then helping others to do the same. Marriage is no different. An interesting self-reflection, and probably shared […]

Why Would I do Anything Else?

It’s the end of August and most schools are gearing up for students coming back to campus. That means it’s also my busiest travel season. As an example, over the past three days I took three flights, stayed in three different locations, and rented three different cars. Fall travel craziness gets insane really fast. But […]

Hindsight – 06/30/11 – Bus Tripping To Pittsburgh

ACbert, Hindsight, Love, Traveling No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

Yes, taking a bus from NYC to Pittsburgh takes eight hours and flying only takes two hours. Yes, it would actually be cheaper to fly if I added in how much my per hour cost is and added that to the cheaper bus tickets. But it’s 2:58 in the morning, I’m drinking a beer (I […]

Hindsight – 11/13/10 – After Nine Years

ACbert, Hindsight, Relationships No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

After being together for nine years, it’s exciting for me to know that I’m still discovering new stuff about Annie. Today we watched Big Fish at the Sony Technology Center. Anyone who knows the film, knows if you don’t cry at the end you are not human. In the dark theater we teared up along […]

Hindsight – 10/24/10 – Sign Language Lovers

Hindsight, Love, Relationships No Comments by Tom Krieglstein

On my flight home today, the couple in front of me spoke to each other in sign. Though I had a bunch of work to do, I couldn’t keep my eyes off their conversation. It was filled with facial expressions, body movements, eye contact, and of course lots of hand gestures. All the external clues […]
