gift giving and heretic hitting…

Today seems like as good of a day as any to begin again. It has been almost two months since I last posted and quite a bit has happened. Classes finished rapidly, ending with the best gpa I have had at CSL, and my wife and I were whisked away to the east coast to…

a fresh start?

As the calendar page is about to turn once again, a new chapter in my life is beginning. Over two months have passed since I last tried to get this blog a sense of regularity, and who knows, maybe one day it will find that. But rather than apologize and give weak excuses for my…

you’ll never walk alone…

Two more weeks have come and gone. The quarter is well underway and I have more homework to do than ever before, only, that doesn't necessarily mean I'll do it all. Well, after years of wondering and waiting if it would ever happen to me, I finally have a conversion story. I am proud to…

the men, the myths, the legends… JoePa and Luther

For the past several days now it seems the biggest news story has involved college football icon Joe Paterno. Last night both the president of the university and JoePa were removed from their respective positions. But I wonder why so many people are clamoring for more. The alleged details of the situation are somewhat sketchy…

the distant triumph song

Tonight I had a well needed respite from a hectic week of research, paper writing, work, sickness, and internship stuff. But rather than spend tonight sitting on my duff, a group of close friends and I decided to resurrect a tradition we had back in undergrad. During finals week a we would find a time…

fight the good fight…

This weekend, among other things, I will turn the ripe old age of 26. More and more it seems that I have become extremely reflective on my life. I look back at where I came from and my childhood and high school years seem like a distant memory. So much has happened, so many things…

I’d still do it…

This past weekend the band indeed got back together. The band to which I am referring is the Muff Divers, a fictional band created by me and a few friends during college when we spent more time playing rock band than pursuing academics. It was a much needed respite from what has become my life…

thank you Sarah…

Tuesday of this week began like any other. I woke up early, as my wife and I have lost the ability to sleep in. I stepped out of the room for just a minute to find one thing or another and upon my return noticed a missed call and a text. Most days I tend…

it is what it is

It has been well over two weeks since I last stared at the blank box on the screen hoping to be imbued with some sort of coherent thought which may or may be of value to someone other than myself. While Id like to think I was too busy to take the time the truth…
