Thoughts Into The Weekend vol. 15

It’s hard for me to fully put into words in how I feel when I think about 9/11. The day was a living nightmare. No matter how some of our current problems may seem, once we realize that safety and security is at the top of our priorities, then a lot of other issues don’tContinue reading “Thoughts Into The Weekend vol. 15”

Indiana’s “Lake Of The Ozark’s” Moment Has Students At Risk Of Suspension

I want to wish all of you a happy belated Labor Day. Apparently, one of the reasons why this year’s Labor Day was not celebrated by Indiana University was because IU felt that a long weekend could potentially persuade people to gather in large groups and spread COVID19.

On The First Day Of Virtual Classes The Indiana Canvas System Crashed

I can only laugh at something like this. It’s one of the more classic outcomes of what we only should have expected as we return to (virtual) classes. But truthfully, it’s embarrassing and maddening. My first class of the year was supposed to begin at 9:25am. As I looked to log on to my CanvasContinue reading “On The First Day Of Virtual Classes The Indiana Canvas System Crashed”

Thoughts Into The Weekend vol. 13

The news cycle is legitimately exhausting at this point. I almost feel like it’s groundhog day. The stories that we see on a daily basis are pretty much all blending together to create a nauseating repeat of daily attacks and takes that are getting quite predictable. The same goes for me. Too much news. OneContinue reading “Thoughts Into The Weekend vol. 13”

#WeWantToPlay – The Fight For A Season

On Sunday it seemed that collegiate fall sports, including college football, were almost on the brink of being cancelled after a bunch of suits and university Presidents who serve on the B1G conference committee supposedly had been meeting all weekend trying to figure out a way to squirm out of the season. This comes atContinue reading “#WeWantToPlay – The Fight For A Season”

Thoughts Into The Weekend vol. 11

I’m writing this on a train as I journey back to Bloomington, Indiana. I’m not taking the most conventional route, but it’s not always a straight line that can yield the best results. This train, that got delayed for 90 minutes because of a fallen power line, is on its way to Philadelphia where IContinue reading “Thoughts Into The Weekend vol. 11”
