This is mattandkim, my current favorite band who I will be seeing at the 40 Watt in April. Which makes me undenyably happy.

Their new album Gran is my saving grace for those long treks to and from Clemson, as well as a good wakeup album in the morning.



This is the most amazing sandwich I have ever made.

It is more on the side of the hamburger than a sandwich.

Whole Wheat Roll
Spicy Mayo (house made)
a hamburger patty
Monterey Jack Cheese
a touch of ketchup
and mixed greens

...to all those who know me

I am sorry I am not around like I used to be. Life has found me very, very busy and the more the days go on the more I get behind on life. I am happy though for the most part. Work has its moments of pure joy and its moments where I still get overwhelmed but I really cannot see me doing anything else right now. I looked around the restarurant tonight and I thought to myself. You really are home aren't you? I will say that I have been pretty snappy as of late so maybe it is a good thing that I haven't done much. Sleep is a blessing when it comes, today I slept on my parents bed in a space a foot wide between abby and lucy almost laying in the morning wash. It must have been a sight! I can only imagine what it will be like when I am in a big restaurant someplace. After my little weekend with Katie in Athen I can say with a heavy heart that I am cutting PBR out of my life. It totally made me feel like I was walking backwards into a pool of something dastardly and possibly green (not in the good way) I can also say that I am not a huge fan of The Loft. Yeah, I said it. Maybe it is because I am not a fratty kind of guy in that fratty wear my baseball hat backwards kind of way. But I also wonder if this whole chef thing is going to make me a lush cause thats all I seem to do when I am not working. I might be going to see Joshua Radin on the 30th, if I can stomach 20 bucks for 45 minutes of him playing then leaving cause hes an opening act...decisions decisions...i found my new after work dinner spot in Clemson, the Palms Gas Station where I ususally spend the most of my money has sandwiches which are in fact really good for cold cuts and they dont taste frozen. anyway im cutting this off now so I can sleep some cause I have Algebra in the morning TEST TIME

peace and bacon,

you wont burst my bubble

Yesterday we inaugurated our 44th President of the United States Barack Obama. A man that may not be the most experinced at the job but truth be told....who is? We will not know the legacy that he will leave because it has only been, one day? So why all the hostilities for a man who has not even had his first day at work? I am a firm believer in the power of keeping it on the positive side of life and hoping for the best. He has a tough job ahead of him. He now not only has all the pressues of having America behind him (two million in Washington D.C. plus countless others around our great nation...but he also has the rest of the world hoping for the best in this guy. So why dont we just put aside our differences and just let him do the job he was elected to do. America is in a really tough place right now and it is probably going to get worse before it gets better. We all know this. So why not try and support someone who is trying to help us out! I might not be the smartest man around but I feel like I can intelligently say that I support him no matter what. No matter the celebrity backing, how "trendy" he is, or even the color of his skin. Which in my opinion is something to celebrate! We are finally coming out of a history that has belittled people due to the color of their skin. Killed people because of the color of their skin. Skinned people, burned them, raped them, forced them to work their fingers to the bone, caused many Americans to have a lost of history. We sit around and talk about "im french, im scottish" our African American counterparts have no little to know idea where their families come from. The very steps that President Obama took his oath on was built by slave labor. If having a man who is even half black is not a step in the direction of something good in the world then I might as well settle all my debts and head to work in the restaurants of Europe. I voted for the man. I believe in him. He has given me pride in my country. When I watched the television today and I saw all those people just as teary eyed and happy as I was, I no longer felt alone. We are living in history my friends. Cant we try and see it through this to revive America to the country that we know it can be???!?!?

....I dont know maybe I am just...what is the word...disillusioned to the facts that are bigger than me and the realms of my understanding. Maybe I will be dissapointed. Maybe he will be the worst President that we have ever had. But if we are not behind him, he wont get much done anyway.

...the whole thing fills me with pride and sours my stomach at the same time.

This is Ashley.

Probably the coolest girl I know.

She had a birthday and I missed it.

When we are old, we will drink cocktails and remember when we where this age.

Happy 24th Friend!
