Young starving college kid.  Trying to find my way in the world. :)

Makes me happy: coming home and seeing my excited puppy (Trooper), taking long walks, trying a new recipe and having it turn out perfectly delicious, funny cat videos

Makes me sad: those dang ASPCA commercials, change, seeing dead animals on the side of the road

Oh no! Are we heading towards a fall with no football (at least in the NFL)?  I hope not, but it is a possibility if the player’s union and the NFL owners can’t make a compromise.
