The Writing On The Walls

Some weekends are designed catch up on work. Some are designed to help you relax. Others are designed to help you rediscover old roots. This weekend fell into category three. Marathon was a hardcore band that played a ton around CNY in the early 2000s. I only caught them a few times but their catchy […]

My Birthday Was Made Of 100 Percent Pure Vibranium

Today marks the halfway point to my first midlife crisis. Thankfully that is not at the forefront of my brain as I was treated to an awesome gathering of friends, a Vegan Vibranium cake (baked and decorated by Katie E. Newcomb), people yelling birthday wishes down the hall at work, and later my first Bane […]

Alternative Education

It was recently brought to my attention that a former student wrote an essay about me for another one of her classes. How sweet is that? I suggest giving it a read and then doing a lecture tour. SPEAK by Mary Did you know that public speaking is one of the most common phobias and […]

A New Life Goal Acknowledged

Graduating from Binghamton University was a very important landmark in my life. When I was in high school and told one of my teachers about my goal of attending Binghamton for school she rolled her eyes and snidely replied “Binghamton is a school for students who can’t afford Harvard and need a SUNY alternative.” I […]

Google Got It Right

Like anyone else, I find myself fascinated with the content that takes priority on the Google front page on any given day. I may have even let my class have a Pacman free for all when google had a playable pacman game. Unfortunately, the majority of the “celebrations” that google takes part in don’t hold […]

Break The Repetition

The past twenty four hours have been phenomenal. I made it back to my house last night around 1AM and found a square package on the table addressed to me. I knew the instant I saw it that it would be the highlight of my week. I ripped it open and glared at a beautiful […]

Save PBS!

With budgets they way they are it is understandable that politicians are trying to find ways to cut corners in hopes of “saving our economy.” One of the proposed budget cuts will eliminate (that means get rid of, evaporate, diffuse, destroy, etc.) the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). This would be the destruction of the only […]
