Let Comrade Answer “Here”

April 21, 2016 marked my first Muster as a Former Student, and while the experience was definitely different than the previous four years in Aggieland, it was no less profound.

One last visit to Downton Abbey

This evening is both somber and celebratory, for tonight is when the US will watch the series finale of Downton Abbey.

Thanks For The Memories, 2015

~My year in review, as told through 2015’s New Year’s Resolutions~ 1. This is sort of a roll-over from last year, but I am committing to cooking a meal once a week (that’s not Easy-Mac).

The Force Awakens

When I was nine years old, I saw Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. It was the summer of 2002, and my family was vacationing in California for the first time. My parents had exposed me to Star Wars early on in my childhood, as well as a […]
