A Book Report

I wrote a book report a few years ago on a book entitled “American Crisis”. I figured I’d share it here for giggles. Enjoy. From the early days of elementary school, kids are often taught of the infallible George Washington. George Washington, the father of our country and the hero of the United States. Children

(Death) ~Terry Pratchett, Hogfather I wanted to write about Birthdays today. I’ve been wanting to for just about the past two weeks. The thing is, I can’t think of what to write. I

Resident Evil – Escape Room

For my Birthday, Elgin and I were sent to an Escape Room in Chicago. It was based on the Resident Evil Franchise, and was a recreation of the escape room that was done at a convention for the release of Resident Evil 7. All in all, it was a good experience, and I maintain my

A Peaceful Transition

To many people around the world right now, this election’s results were horrifying. The rug was ripped out from beneath their feet. They feel like they are in free fall. They feel like the world doesn’t make sense, and they don’t know what to do. If you’re one of these people, like I was this

I ran away from home once.

I wrote this up July 6, 2012, but I thought I would share it here too. I ran away once. It was my baby sitter’s home. She was this mean woman who took care of me and my sister along with her kids. The youngest, (my age) was named Benny and he used to wet

How to train your Network

You should see the shudders I get from people when I talk with them about building their network.
