Why I am thankful...

Today is a day of thanks.  I am thankful for all my friends and family who have made me the person I am today and have helped me succeed in my life.

I am thankful for my friends from home.  Jack, Mike, Pat, Kail, Ed, Brian, Danny, Jess and Alyssa.  We all grew up together, or spent our high school years together.  I am so thankful that we have still stayed friends throughout all our separate journeys through college and beyond.  Thank you guys and girls for always being there when it counted. 

I am thankful for my friends from HWS.  Pino, Barto, Shane, Rick, Tyler, Sam, Danica, Marie, Zinnia, Julianne, Alex, Kate, Zosia, Elena and Heather.  Thank you guys for making the last four years of my life, the best years of my life.  All the trips to Heavy’s, Sideshow, Red Brick and more will always be remembered and cherished.  All the Potter 3 shenanigans where it began and all the shenanigans where we ended at Castle St., 202 Pultney, the Yellow House and the apartments along main.  Thank you guys and girls for making it the best!

Thank you all the MUP’s and my roommates John, Jordan and Steve.  This first semester has been a great experience and I only expect good times in the future!  Thank you!

Finally, I have to thank my parents and siblings.  Without my family I would not be where I am today.  My brother and sister have become closer to me every day as I have grown up and no one will be as supportive and caring as Josh and Jennie. Mom and dad you have given me everything and if it was not for you I would certainly not be where I am today.  Thank you for supporting me in everything I have ever done, and expecting me to succeed in all my endeavors.  I love you guys so much, and I am soo thankful I have the best parents in the world! 

Thank you everybody for making my life the best it can be and I hope I can help make your lives just as great.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My usual style

So I have grown my beard back to about the length i normally try to keep it. This is what I like the most, and this is how most of my friends know how I look. I am participating in no shave november or "novembeard" so I wont be trimming this for another 18 days.  That also includes thanksgiving.  I will put up another pic in a week or so and then I will post one last pic of my beard at the end of the month and right before I trim, shave or even keep it if I really like it ha.  Hope you enjoy:

Where is America Headed?

Ok well its not a surprise how many seats the Dems lost last night.  But it is people like Rand Paul that make me worry for the future of our country.  I mean honestly, he said, "There are no rich, there are no middle class, there are no poor." then five seconds later he says, "we all work for rich people, or we sell stuff to rich people..." So basically he just went back on what he said.  Additionally, he is all about "fiscal conservatism," where tax breaks are the main ideology.  I mean people love tax breaks but we need taxes to lower our deficit.  Additionally, he said he wants less government and government can not produce jobs.  Well if Rand Paul read a history book, he would see that FDR (maybe one of the greatest or at least innovative Presidents of all time) created thousands of jobs in order to spur the economy in the worst Depression ever!  So please, i really hope his extreme ideology does not carry over into congress.  Check out the videos and see what i am talking about....
