61 Days

There’s plenty of markers I’ve made a note of in my head as my first year of teaching has hurtled along at several times the speed of light.  My first day is on the...

Am I Ready?

Am I ready? It’s the question I’ve been asking as the countdown to that ephemeral first day of classes ticks closer and closer. It’s a terrible question, actually. Not because I shouldn’t be preparing...

Get Back On The Bike!

I have loved riding bikes since I was a little kid in Aloha, OR shredding the dust in my one gear BMX bike.  I remember the Christmas when I got a silver Schwinn with...

The Gift of Words

2017.  What a year.  I’ve been wrestling with how to write this post because this is my last post as a college student.  I’ve been writing about my experiences since January 2014 and every...

The Penultimate Post

What a journey it has been. Since January of 2014 I’ve been on a path of rebirth, renew, and rebuilding.  It hasn’t been without pain – those moments where I found the need to...

You read that headline right.  I’m crawling my way to the finish line.  And not in a fun, smiley, playing a game way.  This is a desperate crawl to escape the impending doom of...

Back To The Future, Part 1

I waxed poetic about BTTF: Part II (and plenty of other sequels) back in January as I shared my hopes for the start of the Spring 2015 semester.  You’re probably thinking that I’m going to...

In The Valley of Peace

Going back to school when you’re thirty three years old is an absolute adventure filled with a never ending basket of variables.  There’s stresses with money, loans and books.  There’s the fear of not...

Deep Breath, Part II

The post title refers to two things.  One – the original post from last semester.  It also is a reference to the opening episode of Peter Capaldi’s Doctor in Doctor Who.  The episode is notable...

Back To The Future, Part II

The second movie in trilogies is hit or miss.  Star Wars has one of the best.  Back to the Future is disappointing.  Lord of the Rings is acceptable.  Godfather Part II is timeless (let...

2014 Wasn’t THAT Bad…Right?

Three days.  In three days 2014 will be but a memory as the clocks and calendars will click over into the future.  There are plenty of folks in my facebook feed and twitter feed...

In The Valley

Merry Christmas! I hope that the holidays were kind to you. They were beyond kind to me and I’m humbled at the gifts I was given. I got a big box of food from...
