Hello family and friends! It has occurred to me that some of you may be interested in my life here in Caroline. So, here’s an update! We are in the middle of orientation week, getting registered and settled here on the campus. I’ve met with the Dean of Education and the Dean of Men who […]
As Lorenzo was staring at Percy as he talked, he began to become less shocked and more overjoyed. Now he could have a friend to talk to about everything under the lights of the office.

I can’t take a good self portrait. That frustrates me. So I’ve started a challenge. Every Friday I’ll take a self portrait with the hopes that one day I’ll take a good one.
Once upon a cloudy day, Lorenzo the Llama was feeling glum. This wasn’t unusual for Lorenzo. However it wasn’t common either.
