The other day I was feeling quite hungry and somewhat under the weather. So I headed to the convenience store on campus to grab a bite to eat and a drink. I learned that the “Amp” energy drinks are actually not that bad, although they’re ridiculously expensive. Sadly, my first thought when buying it was [...]
I’m pretty much an expert on zombies. I beat Dead Rising, and watched Shawn of the Dead the other day. (By the way, the catchy tune that is their themesong is The Blue Wrath by I Monster.) So a few comments: They’re none too smart. You can fool them by walking like a zombie. Throw [...]

Kyle’s ending sentence reminded me of something I’ve noticed before: we at Bentley are not normal. Even those of us who aren’t obsessed with starting the next big company still have business on our minds all the times.
