I love many things in life: food, music, and my family.  But nothing compares to sleeping. NOTHING. I would sleep for days if I could, but there's one thing standing in my way...school. Having to wake up to my alarm blaring so early in the morning, depriving me of my precious sleep, so I can get my butt to ...

Tis the season to be jolly! Well no, not really, not at all. Ever since these pilgrims stole MY holiday, this season just makes me cry. You all have probably heard the story by now, but I don’t mind telling it again. Once upon a time, I was the King of the Land and the people loved me greatly. Every...

Want to hear a joke? Terrapins, Ravens, and Redskins. That’s it.  That’s the joke.  The Maryland and DC football mascots. Let’s start with the Maryland Terrapins. First of all, we are named after a freaking turtle. It really does make me cry sometimes. As tough as we try to make th...

It’s almost that time of the year again; the weather has chilled (almost) and people are out shopping to acquire gifts… for themselves. Some may even call it the most wonderful time of the year, while others lock their doors and close the windows on the holiday. Pfft, haters. That’s right kid...

Have you ever noticed how certain people are good at everything? And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING.
