I am not good at hockey. In fact, I suck at hockey. I also suck at skating. And shooting. Yet this hockey season has been the most fun I have had in a long time. Yes, the "hockey" part is fun, but so is everything that comes with the hockey too. Both on and off the ice, the genuine camaraderie on our team has been unlike anything I have experienced.

It is almost midnight, and Super Bowl LII begins in 40 minutes. I am currently on a semester away from BB&N at St. Stephen's School in Rome, and the most important game, possibly moment, of my life is about to begin.
All roads have led me back to being an artist. By the time I graduated from BB&N in 1983, I’d taken many an art class at the school and pursued photography in independent study, but as I headed off to Stanford I chose to be an International Relations major. In college I kept gravitating back to art, taking studio classes and art history classes for electives. Eventually one of my professors noticed this pattern and encouraged me to pick up a double major in Studio Art.
“If light shall never reach your soul, then in darkness you will prosper….”
The opening words to my novel slipped into my mind the day I graduated from the BB&N Middle School.
I have really come to appreciate my time with the Vanguard, BB&N's student newspaper. I am one the editors who meet for two hours each week to go over potential article ideas, topics and structuring for the centerfold Double Truck (DT), Current Topics page (CT), and editorials.
