27 Things About Turning 27

I turned 27 a couple of weeks ago, so I decided to write-up a list of 27 things that went through my head recently about turning 27. I had to get a new driver’s license because the one I got at 18 expired. It’s something you think is always a few years out until you get […]

Meeting Friends

Growing Up

While I was home back in September, I was supposed to smoke a cigar with a couple of my friends. Due to time constraints, we were unable to so I was handed the cigar and we decided we’d figure it out later. This past weekend, we figured it out with the help of Google+ Hangouts […]
