I’m done!


And my final’s not even due until Sunday! As a professional slacker and procrastinator, I’m astounded. I was certain I’d be at Doc’s this Sunday diligently typing away while everyone else was outside enjoying the theology club picnic. Yes, my alma matter has a theology club, and we have end of the year picnics. But […]

He was probably the foreign leader with the greatest impact on my childhood. I remember when the Soviet Union collapsed, and how things changed.

I don’t know what to say. The shooting at Virginia Tech hit harder than I expected it to. I offer my heartfelt condolences to everyone at VT. Its very strange to me, I was listening to NPR today, both on the way to my meeting and then to class, and they were talking to students […]
