DC Friday

I’m starting this blog from the Charlotte airport right after waking up from a nap that was forced upon me by an excessive amount of Manchu Wok, so if what I write doesn’t make sense, I blame it on that. I think the fact that I am willing to sleep on an airport floor serves […]


Thursday. In High School, my friends and I liked to call it “pre-Friday” because it made the weekend feel that much closer. Plus, anything with “Friday” in the title just sounds better.
