Here’s just a few things off the top of my head that God has blessed me with to keep me going: (more…)
What are your thoughts on illegal immigration?
As someone who’s going through the process of becoming a citizen, I don’t think about it much. Really, I’m only getting it to make life easier for me travel-wise should I decide to study abroad.

In some 15 or so hours I’ll be getting ready to watch the Sugar Bowl, which is a nice match-up considering its Tuesday night time slot. I’m sure not many of my readers (all 3 of you, haha) are too big on football, so ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the idiot’s guide to the 2011 Allstate Sugar Bowl matchup between the 8th-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks and the 6th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes.
