I have a confession to make — In my last post about both my favorite teams being in the NBA and NHL Western Conference Finals, I said that I would watch all of the games (despite the 8-hour time difference here in London).

I have locked myself in my apartment for the past 2 days all the while turning down numerous opportunities to liven […]Read more "Assorted Weekend Thoughts “Studying Sucks” Session"
