It was a really tight game and both teams switched leads numerous times, but never in double digits. I was literally at the edge of my seat during the last few seconds! The exciting game and the victory […]

Earth Hour

Earth hour, I figured I’ll spend the time contemplating and write up a post for my somewhat neglected journal (just checked, my last blog post was way back in early Feb.).
