The Big Payoff

I know exactly where I’m going. And I know how to get there. But this isn’t the first time I’ve tried to make the journey. I’ve set out before with a road map and a bag full of aspirations. One minute the sun was shining almost too bright. The next hour there was a gale…

The Case of the Missing Flashdrive

Walking fresh faced onto a new campus, I thought I’d prepare myself for my 3rd attempt at completing some form of a degree. That was 10 years and 3 majors ago. I splurged and purchased the most beautiful silver flashdrive with a single rhinestone. I don’t know how many gigs it is, but it has…
