Yearly Archives: 2007

If you knew me during my fraternity hay-day, you would know that I made it to the final round of Alpha Xi Delta’s Xi Man competition in 2006 due in large part to my “talent” for the evening. I rediscovered the original manuscript for it while I was cleaning out some old boxes in my closet last weekend. The dilemma I faced is that the only thing I was good at was writing.
