    Anybody use Twitter?

    I've had a Twitter account for almost 2 years now and figured I'd start using it more. The problem is that I don't have many followers.

    Graduated from High School Yesterday!

    Needless to say, it was emotional. 12 years in the Westlake City School District came to quite the finish yesterday at the CSU Wolstein Center. It was a long ceremony, but I knew it would be the last time I would see a lot of my friends. I would like to thank so many people here on the Bench...

    Tidbits from the Broadcast Table!

    Being my senior year in high school, I decided to FINALLY be proactive! My school has one of the best TV stations in the area, and I've been a part for a few years, but never really got very involved, and that is my only regret. So, I started signing up to do color commentary for my school's...
