It’s Black History Month and I’m Feeling Blue

So here are a few methods I’ve implemented to hide my lumpy, un-athletic body from those around me. Continue reading

Kenyon After Dark: From New Apts to Old K


A self portrait

Its 2am on Tuesday night, your friends have just kicked you out of their apartment because you got a little too steamed up Watching Jude Law be a very sexy, but very mean young Pope. Your fingers are stained with cheeto dust, your hair smells like tequila and you’re just trying to make it home with your dignity and your eyebrow makeup intact.

Take a walk with me friend, all the way to Old Kenyon–I want you to see what I see, hear what I hear, hopefully not smell what I smell but you get the point. Here are a few things I’ve witnessed on many a journey from New Apts to Old K.
