Packers' win was a bittersweet one
I'm not sure why, or how, but Super Bowl Sunday always turns out better than I was expecting. The game always seems to turn out to be close, and the events always seem to turn out, well, interesting, or at least entertaining. Anyway, this year I got real sick, up to Sunday at l...

That sinking feeling: Sailing the Pelican
The other day I was sitting around, semi depressed, and thinking. One of my friends once told me "the older you get, the easier things are," but realistically I've learned that statement isn't quite right. If things seriously get easier as you get older, then why do I miss being...

Touched by a ghost: No paranormal skeptic
When it comes to controversial topics, something in my body must have a response to it, because lately things that have been interesting to me tend to have some sort of conflict in them as well. For example, I've been becoming more interested in investigating the paranormal. Though...

New year, ready for new experiences

Christmas just isn't what it used to be
It's officially the holiday season, highlighted with Christmas, which in my opinion is the best holiday of the year. Being 16 years old is kind of doing the job, as in growing me up, though. This year, Christmas came off as being somewhat dull. My family pretty much kept its distance...

Metrodome roof a mistake from the start
This world has some really dimwitted people, whose dimwittedness still tends to amaze me sometimes. When you live in Minnesota, what are the first things you should expect?

From 'Rugrats' to 'Sponge Bob'
What is it about television that's able to make nearly all kids ages 5-10 fall for it so much? It could be the colors and pictures (of which I personally can hardly see due to my color deficiency), or the funny voices. Honestly, I'm not really sure. When I was young I happened...

Waiting for one last winning season
Hockey, supposed to be fun, supposed to be a game, but honestly it's insanity. Every year from October to March, I spend my nights and weekends skating myself to death. People ask me why i do this every year, and the answer is because I love the game. I started seven years ago...

Some memories stick with you forever
"All I can say is that my life is pretty plain." I sat in the car and listened to lyrics pour through my head. It was a song I hadn't heard in years, and honestly I can kinda see why.
