I Will Never Forget

Thirteen years ago, I woke up just as I usually did... To my sister's alarm. Emily has always been a deep sleeper and it was a miracle if she woke up on her own. Every day, I would listen to that annoying BEEP BEEP BEEP, I considered myself lucky if she just hit snooze. On... Continue Reading →

Is it Child Porn?

Featured in Perspectives

Today, I am flattered. I was looking through some old Utah State things and found this gem. I had no idea it had been published. They had approached me during my Senior year of college about featuring me in the magazine, but I didn't know it really happened. The Perspectives Magazine happens once a semester...
