Paddle surfing

Two weekends ago I had a paddle surfing class on the Atlantic Ocean. The weather was rough but I was able to stand and had a blast going over decently sized waves.

Cordoba

Last weekend we went on a school trip to Cordoba. It was beautiful. The old buildings dominated the city, and the small winding road taunted you, hoping to lure you in and then let you out. Per usual the trip had little to no organization. Arriving at the bus station we piled into two buses…

Mourning a Book

I just finished the eragon series. It has been a long time since I have read the first three books but the final book wasn’t written until 2011 I have just now gotten around to reading it. There is a certain grief I feel whenever I finish a book series, and this time was no…
