Choose to Succeed

Carpe Diem is bringing our successful blended learning model of education to San Antonio. We have secured property on the west side of town on Military Road just south of 151. This newly constructed campus will be approximately 40,000 square feet and will support 600 students at capacity. Registration will occur during the month of October; please email Nick Fleege with questions or to join our email list. Planning is already underway for our second campus. We are currently evaluating several properties on the East, NE, and SE areas of town. A formal announcement will be made after we’ve completed our due diligence and established a timeline for opening (which could be as early as 2015!).

The Immortal Cowboy Quigley(Link)

November 2012

In this light-hearted novella, Cowboy Quigley, a quixotic roughneck steeped in the mythology of Texas, endeavors to redeem the mediocrity of his life and of the modern world at-large by liberating Mexico from an imaginary arch-villain. Inspired by a comical but recognizably American idealism, Cowboy wills his preconceived notions onto a world that – much to the embarrassment of his reluctant sidekick, Chucho – rarely conforms itself to his delusions.

Cowboy had always hoped that when history called on him, he would acquit himself well and take his place in the pantheon of Texas heroes. But Cowboy’s crusade soon draws the attention of certain unsavory characters who are not inclined to let a swaggering gringo make himself a “hero” at their expense.
