  • The Blazers Are Regional Champions!

    Forget about pinching me to make sure I’m awake; just slap me across the face. Seriously. Anyone who stood around me Saturday night at the game knows that I’m still kind of in disbelief that this has happened. I wouldn’t say it’s unbelievable, it’s just… well, kind of remarkable.

  • Why I Love Parks & Recreation

    There’s something inherently happy about a tiny horse. And by tiny horse, I don’t really mean a pony, although I have nothing against a good pony. I mean a miniature horse, like Li’l Sebastian from Parks and Recreation. Yesterday was the inaugural Happiness Day at University High School, and to me, this made-up holiday is […]

  • When in Doubt, Jellyfish

    The title just about explains my situation. I won’t delve into what is pressing me for time or sapping me of my creativity tonight, but I will dive into the deep sea (metaphorically) to fish (metaphorically) some information up for you regarding a jellyfish that never dies. Kind of. Those of you who have length […]

  • Believe It! The Blazers Are Sectional Champions

    On a cold miserable early January night in Indianapolis, the Trailblazers traveled to the Charles A. Tindley Accelerated School and were handed a sound 71-47 beating by the Tindley Tigers.  However, on a cold but not entirely miserable March evening, the story was a little bit different.
