    By the Way...

    I'm very active in the local community theatre. The crew is known for working hard, getting things done, and being a lot of fun. Not all that long ago, we did a production of M*A*S*H. I was part of the backstage crew. Everything was running smoothly until about 4 days until...

    I love anything to do with tech,

    I feel like we who are born in the generation are so lucky with the advances we've seen so far. Our world is really going somewhere, and whether its good are bad, I hope I can be there to see it.

    Techie Slaves

    At my school, techies are the least appriciated group.  We are always at events far before everyone and long after everyone leaves, but everyone still expects us to do everything perfectly with no notice.  Any mistake or malfunction, the words "Sorry everyone...
