Part III – There and Back Again: The Desolation of Bobcat

Where were we? Oh yes, if you recall, at the end of Part II, our heroes were finishing up from a long day of hurricane cleanup in the small town of Ingleside Texas. The work had gone well besides a close encounter with a crowbar and getting dumped on by hurricane water and cockroaches. Crazy, … Continue reading Part III – There and Back Again: The Desolation of Bobcat

2016 Year-End Review

2016 was a big year full of changes: new school, new state, and new socks.  In a year full of ups and downs, heartbreak and breakfast tacos, I always look forward to writing this year-end review, written in first and third person.  If you were hoping for a physical Christmas card to decorate your fridge … Continue reading 2016 Year-End Review

I'm not a big person.  Although I currently stand at 6'3" and 205 lbs., I have always seen myself as skinny.  This self-perception has most … Continue reading But Exercise and Diets are for Bros and Cheaters!

Talking About Your Mission After Your Mission

          A few days ago, I put out a quick survey for one of my classes.  The purpose of the assignment was to collect information that we could use to prepare a persuasive speech.  The topic I chose concerned the LDS culture and how we talk about missions and unintentionally (hopefully … Continue reading Talking About Your Mission After Your Mission
