The Middle

I walked across front campus this year, across the frozen dirt and mud a thought occurred to me: For more than half of the school year, front campus cannot be walked on.

It was uncomfortable, but not so bad.  I also just out about: I'm going to be an uncle!! Baby's due in August. In other news my Starbucks came with a rude reminder:  My two older brothers are two people I will never surpass. I'm ok with that.
