My right leg is still sore
Went out to Union Square to meet up with an old friend. It was the first time in a while that I’ve gotten out of the house, and just my luck, it’s extremely humid. So we did what city kids do: take shelter inside air conditioning. Our refuges were Whole Foods and Barnes and Nobles, […]

Becoming the earlier and forever kind
Spring break isn’t anything remarkable to blog about this year. I didn’t decide to to go some island with wonderful weather or abroad to some place with lax alcohol or drug use laws. Despite this, this spring break needs to be one of the most remarkable. The past few weeks have seen me at my […]
