SIOS Goes Down... Under

14 July 2014 - 11:14 PM

I figured I'd pull a PhillyB and update my trip as it comes along.


I flew in yesterday (long ass flight), and I'm living in a house with 30 other students from the US, UK, Australia, France, Brazil, Asia, etc. The house is within 5 minutes walking distance to everything in these pictures.














It's not nearly as exotic (yet) as PhillyB's getaways, but I'll be traveling throughout Australia, SE Asia, and New Zealand for the rest of 2014 during my exchange program. I'm about to make the ~3 mile walk along the coast from Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach and back, so maybe I'll have some cool pictures to upload afterwards.


And just a sidenote: As dumb as this might sound, this area (Sydney's eastern suburbs) reminds me a ton of the coastal areas I've been to in Central America. The roads, the marketplaces, the scenery, the crystal clear water, even a lot of the houses. It's weird how the two places are worlds apart and different in so many ways, yet the only way to tell the difference would be the cars and the people. Oh, and everything except boxed wine and Dominos is super expensive.

How Many People Has Aaron Hernandez Allegedly Murdered?

28 May 2014 - 03:08 PM

Honest question. It seems like a new case pops up every other week. What's this new one about him killing two people over a spilled drink?

SIOS Goes To Guatemala

16 March 2014 - 06:59 PM



As suggested by Arsen, I'll make this into its own thread.


Basically, me and two friends decided to go a little nontraditional for Spring Break and hop on a plane down to Guatemala. None of us knew a lick of Spanish, but luckily one of their fathers had a contact down there who picked us up at the airport and drove us to this town in the mountains called Cuilapa.


We stayed at what was likely the nicest place in the area, as it had running water and WiFi in the lobby. About 20 minutes outside of Cuilapa in a little community called Los Chilitos, there was an American based organization paying some local masons to build a school. We hitched a ride out to Los Chilitos each day to help the builders construct the school.


Along the way, we met a lot of amazing people, especially the children of the village. I came to love the place and the kids in just a week, which is ridiculous considering I've always been pretty annoyed by kids. It's amazing how the language barrier disappears with young kids, because all they wanna do is play around and be happy.


I wanna plan a return trip for early summer, mainly because I already miss the location and the kids. Just playing around with them is the happiest I've been and most fun I've had in ages. I think it might've changed my early career outlook and instead of jumping into working for the government right out of school, I might wanna seek out work in an NGO or the Peace Corps or something beforehand.


I'm just gonna mass upload all of the pictures into a big gallery, and I definitely think they're worth the look, if for nothing else than for the ridiculously cute kids and the amazing scenery.



Wyoming WR Robert Herron

16 February 2014 - 08:30 PM

One of my personal favorite wideouts in the draft. If we double-dip at WR, which I think we should, Herron could be an interesting late rounder to steal. Although I think his stock is slowly on the rise.


Reminds me a lot of Steve, moreso than a lot of these other guys people are trying to compare Steve to. He has good but not great hands, but he's aggressive, has an endless motor, is ridiculously speedy, will go and grab balls over the middle, and is great in the open field. Only 5'9 though.



"Klondike" - New Discovery Miniseries

21 January 2014 - 05:16 PM

Did anyone catch the premeir last night?


I was extremely impressed by what they did with the show. It's Discovery's first miniseries, and it was absolutely fantastic in its debut episode.


They're two hours long, and I believe it's only a 3 part miniseries. If I were you guys, I'd jump on the first segment before tonight's episode comes on at 9.


It stars Richard Madden (Robb Stark in GOT) amonsgt a couple of other faces that you've undoubtedly seem before.
