Getting an edumacation
Currently a Senior at Texas State University. It is there that i am trying to become educated in the ways of Political Science and History; both of which are my majors. I enjoy getting to experience new things which will hopefully broaden the scope i view the world through. Music is another big passion of mine, my interests encompass most styles of music but it is that Jazz and American Pre-war blues reign supreme.
To each their own.

I got to travel to Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico to see the Maya ruins for a study abroad Summer 2007, France. Backpacking in the San Juan National Forest in SW Colorado was a eye opening experience.
