February 4th, 2018, is a day that will be remembered for a lifetime by millions of Philadelphia Eagles fans around the world, myself included.

The team that won a few short weeks ago carried with them the weight of decades of disappointment and brok...

Writing wasn't my passion growing up.  It still isn't.  I still remember spending hours in front of my computer trying to write essay after essay (the distraction of internet didn't help either).  It felt like I would write for a few minutes and then enter a long portion of writer's block.  The process would repeat over and over again until I finished. 

Often times, I found myself short of the length require...

When I was in elementary school, we had a yearly fundraiser in which each student was asked to sell Entertainment Books.  An Entertainment Book is basically a book full of coupons that the buyer can use at various stores.  With each book sold, CCS would get a margin of the sale.  As a student, that’s not what motivated me to sell books.  It was all about the prizes.  There were different levels of prize rewards.  You reached l...

I love playing sports.  When I was in high school, it was the one thing I always looked forward to.  It was a time where I could spend with my teammates and focus on something other than my schoolwork.
