Mark is one of my closest friends. We’ve been college roommates and we’ve Djed together at the local college bar, Roscoes. We’ve also worked together and he was even the best man at my wedding. Random story about that. So, Joanna and I decided to write our own vows but I had a hard time figuring out how I was going to say what I wanted to say succinctly. On one hand I wanted my vows to be something we could easily remember. I was also anxious because I wanted them to be short so I wouldn’t stumble while saying them in front of all our guests. Mark was the one who sat with me and helped me edit what I wanted to say. He patiently listened to me as I untangled my thoughts then proof read what I finally came up with. I’ll never forget that day. That’s just the kind of dude he is.
Now that he has decided to teach I’m super excited for his students. I know first hand what having a good teacher can mean for a student’s future. There is no doubt in my mind that the students who’s lives Mr. Spurlin touches will be positively impacted.
A Few things worth mentioning:
The format hasn’t changed. These are still single take recordings, no editing. I’m guessing this won’t change. Half way through our conversation me mentioning this here will make sense.
The audio quality still isn’t the greatest but I think it’s noticeably better than the first conversation I recorded with my brother-in-law Nate.
Lastly, Mark and I had a long list of things we thought would be fun to talk about and only got to three. We’re def. going to meet up again and tackle the others topics. This will also be a good excuse for us to get together more often. All that said, without further adieu, here’s the first convo with my buddy Mark.
