This past Friday, Chris, Bexx, Nicole, Tre, Maxx Powers and I drove down to Wilkes – Barre, PA for Posi Numbers. Fun times. Way too many fights. Lots of good friends. At too much Taco Bell. Got some new jeans.

“He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
