Oh You Gotta Have Faith

Typewriters and Graduate School, oh my!

The plan was to do a blog post at least once a month, but best laid plans often go awry. So here's what has been going on since July: About a month ago my dad surprised me with a typewriter. Yes, you read that correctly. A full fledged manual typewriter and I am...
