- Photo Portfolio
My photo portfolio is now online. There are three pages to it (there is a black arrow under the thumbnails to go to the next page). Check it out and let me know what you think.

After a long week of writing essays, lots of reading, and a test, the weekend came. I went to a picnic friday evening and Saturday I went for a bike ride, relaxed, washed clothes, and did homework. I also went to see a speaker, Jim Tusty, maker of the film “The Singing Revolution“. After he spoke, he showed the film. The Singing Revolution is an interesting documentary on the role that arts and culture played in Estonia’s independence movement from the USSR. I recommend seeing it if you have a chance. (I am going to buy it when it is available on DVD.)
- Essay Weekend
I apologize for not updating for a few weeks. Also, I have yet to take pictures of the campus. I have, however, taken football and volleyball photos, as well as photos for articles in The Collegian (the nationally acclaimed student-run newspaper on campus).
I have been busy with lots of classwork the past two weeks. I have assignments in physics, history, and english almost every night; exercises and lab analysis in physics and a great deal of reading in history and English. The majority of my German work consists of learning vocab, pronouns, gender, and the basics of the language. So far, I like my professors, especially my English professor, Dr. Freeh.
Other miscellaneous information: 1.) I officially have a job now. I work for ITS (Information Technology Services) doing computer maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair. 2.) The third floor of Lane Hall, specifically room 336, is a wonderful place to study. It is quiet and very comfortable. The buildings are open until 2 a.m. so it is a good place to get some late night work done. 3.) There are 25+ NERF guns in my dorm, Niedfeldt, alone. Last weekend we took over an entire floor of one of the classroom buildings and had a battle. It was a great time. Also, since the college president Dr. Arnn boasted to us that he has a huge collection of NERF guns and Super Soakers, we invited him to join us and he wrote us in on his calendar for next weekend. Having a NERF battle with the college president should be awesome.
I have met a lot of wonderful people here and I am making lots of friends. One person I met actually writes for the Mises Institute! It is amazing that a college student writes for such a great think tank. His name is Gennady Stolyarov. Check out his online publication: The Rational Argumentator, and his blog: The Progress of Liberty.
One more thing, check out this shirt that I bought from Praxis, a praxeology/political economy club that I joined. This is what it has on the back: (Sorry for the low-quality picture. That is what I get for using the iSight camera on my laptop.)
If you want one, I can buy you one. They cost $12. I will ship it to you! (Joe Teets, I know that you want one!) Email me.
I am spending my weekend working on two essays that are due next week. After I turn them in, I should have some time to do another update, hopefully with Hillsdale pictures!
