One thing about me that’s not much of a secret is that I love Dave Matthews Band. I used to go to at least one concert of theirs per summer and it wasn’t unheard of for me to attend more than that. But since leaving for Asia (and more significantly, since returning), the sounds of [...]

So I had my knee surgery on Tuesday. For those not in the know, I had a torn ACL – which I tore a few weeks before my wedding – and after having some trouble playing softball this summer I booked the surgery. The best surgeon possible performed the operation and I’ve got some of [...]
