    Is that like a half apartment half office type deal? It’s awesome!

    • chriscastiglione

      Cool thanks Seph… Yeah pretty much, it’s our office, but we hold classes and events here as well. So it’s basically our second home.

    Amazon Prime Air is so hot but at the same time, I feel really concerned about pollution!!!

    • chriscastiglione

      Good point! I feel the same way about Amazon Prime the way it is. Kind of guilty that an entire truck, fuel, and cardboard box have to be involved in shipping me….. a pack of new pens. #patience
