D.C. Chillin’

Hi guys! This weekend was our season opener! We played VCU Friday and Maryland on Sunday.  We were on the road for 4 days--moving from hotel to hotel; eating at different famous restaurants; and visiting some awesome places.  Though we were there for strictly business, our Coach found plenty of down time for us to enjoy our trip.  I remember her saying a couple of years ago that the wins and losses of games really don't matter when...

Finding Your Fit

Hi guys! I've mentioned in my first post that you and I are very similar--in the context that you are trying to find a college that fits you and I am trying to find a law school that fits me.  When I was a junior and senior in high school, I never looked for schools that fit me.  I was a basketball player.  Because of that, schools were looking for me and asking me to come and play for them.  I guess you can say I was spoiled because...

The Quest for the Con (Comic Con 2014)

A long time ago in a state far, far away from New York, there lived a young, somewhat blonde boy by the name of Cameron Haffner. He spent most of his nights in his little island home watching Netflix, ordering pizza and dreaming of a life outside of his tiny microcosm.  Many of Cameron's friends had told him many tales of the great city lights, myths of parallel parking, and the famous, legendary Land of Con (or, the New York Comic...

Abeer in Argentina

Studying abroad in Buenos Aires has got to be one of the best things I have ever done. In the 5 weeks that I spent in this wonderful South American country, I have been to so many places (Buenos Aires, Iguazú and Tigre) and I have learned so many things. I would like to take a moment to share it with you. Mate Mate (mah-tay) or yerba mate (sher-ba mah-tay) is a drink sort of like tea that is a staple in Argentina. It is bitter and is...
