Tales of a 5th Grade Everything

An Afro American article about us in Annapolis. I’m 3rd from the left. We all have at least one teacher from when we were growing up, that we look back on, and remember fondly as the most amazing person in our admittedly, small worlds. From a few conversations I’ve had with close friends and family, these were usually teachers that you just wanted to impress so badly with your school...

2D or Bust

I was born on March 28th, 1981. That’ makes me 31 as of this post and relatively old as far as things on the internet go.

In this way Star Wars and I have sat forever, always together but never mixing....

Patient Zero as a Muse

Similar to those two things, it tends to strike when the weather makes a turn for the colder. A little self-diagnosis, has lead me to believe it’s a particularly virulent strain, this time around. Most of the time I never know exactly where or from...
