Behind our office they've been digging all week. Well actually, they've been trying to move a mountain, literally. Now a mountain is a little bit of a stretch, but you get the point. It's taken them all week to take this mountain of dirt into three smaller mountains of dirt. But they've yet to really … Continue reading Moving Mountains
Dear Parents, I normally do not speak out against people except when it's something that I really care about. I truly try to live the montra "Speak softly and carry a big stick".

To be honest, I have been struggling with writing this post for some time. Today I started a new job.
