I have been neglecting the social media, and I still had 112 pinned. Fixed now.

I completed and turned in the paper for my Senior Seminar! I think it turned out really well, and I had a good time researching the topic. Go ahead and check it out if you're interested.

I can see the effort though. Typesetting is wonderful.

I'm surprised nobody thought of this when they included the line "I usually don't go to the movies" in the show.

Top-notch formatting on this review! I love the way that it is structured as a journey through a normal day and how the watch fits into each setting.
The Apple Watch is Apple’s first entirely-new product in five years. I’ve been wearing one non-stop for a week trying to answer the question: is it worth buying?

A great discussion about how Daredevil portrays and uses Matt's religion to drive his character.

It's a good thing this announcement wasn't made on April 1st.

Introduction
I am a nerd in just about every sense of the word. My closest companions are my computers, I have forgotten more about Star Wars than most people ever know, and I have an addiction to video games.
That said, I still enjoy being outdoors and I have been in the Boy Scouts since 1st grade. I am an Eagle Scout and I have worked at a Cub Scout Camp since 2010.
Bragging rights
I have never lost a game of Star Wars: Trivial Pursuit.

Yo papa so tired, he can't think of anything to put in this newspost. Have a great day!

Relatively small museum, but they manage to pack in a lot of information into the space. The audio tour helps give structure to a visit, and if you have a mobile device it is available for free. We managed to get in free (not sure why, but we suspect it is because we went after 5pm).

There are two factors that determine how much one will enjoy a museum: personal interest in the subject, and the way the information is presented. Vasa earns top marks on both. The whole museum is dedicated to a ship that sank in Stockholm harbor in 1628, and was raised and preserved in the 1970s. The museum is designed masterfully: the ship itself is visible from almost every exhibit, no matter what floor you are on. Every time I thought I had seen all there was, the next floor would surprise me with new information and a new angle from which to see the Vasa.

Great meeting rooms, and the shop carries everything you could need for your BSA uniform.

You must visit if you're in Cannon Falls. Great food, friendly employees, and a good atmosphere.

Clean, friendly staff, well situated. It is very small (the kitchen in particular is quite cramped) but for the price they charge I can't complain.

Very nice theater for the price! Comfortable seats, good sound. I was surprised to find that they charge extra for popcorn flavoring.
