The dodgeball event for Oktoberfest has just ended. My team, Swan Flu, was ranked second after yesterday’s events of cake eating and digital scavenger hunting. The last event of the series is a costume contest tonight at Crossroads. It should be a good turn out as long as the weather holds. To recap, Oktoberfest is […]

mid terms are over and I did super, super ok.

I had some midterms, or rather some papers due as a midterm. the good news is that i survived it. I made it. and truth be told, i called my mom. I called her. and she was glad, I know that makes me a mama’s boy. but heck, they are helping to pay for this […]

A Little Trip to Boston

This weekend, I had the opportunity to travel down to Boston for Friday and Saturday. I’m including the trip on this blog because as much as I love Vermont and the woods, it is fun every once in awhile to get to a sizable city. Boston is such a city, and it’s really not that […]
