Home Sweet Home

My freshman year at B.U. I roomed in a West Campus dorm, complete with mini fridge, impossibly small closet and annoying roommate. I knew that if I could talk my parents into it, I wanted to move off campus as quickly as possible. So my sophomore year I found a great roommate and we moved into Dexter Park, off Comm. Ave just on the border of Boston and Brookline.

I love living in my own apartment because it gives me a lot more freedom and also a sense of responsibility. If we don't pay our cable bill on time we have no one to blame but ourselves when we can't watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Tuesday night.

Road to the Frozen Four

So whoever said Soundslides is easy to use is wrong. It's hard. It's stay up till 1:30 in the morning hard. But I digress...

This weekend the Terriers are set to take on the Ohio State Buckeyes at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, NH, for the right to claim the Northeast Regional NCAA title. But in order to get there they had to take care of their own conference first.

Last Sunday the top-ranked Terriers took on 8th seeded Maine at Agganis Arena in a Hockey East quarterfinal matchup. The night before the Blackbears shocked the home team by taking Game 2 of the best-of-three series, 6-3. The Terriers did not score past the 1st period and faced an unceremonious ending to their season.

But B.U. took charge of the game, scoring in the opening minute of play and never looking back. 6 different Terriers found the back of the net, with sophomore Nick Bonino and senior Brandon Yip each tallying a goal and an assist.

Playing with Photoshop

Here is an updated version of my picture story from last week. After learning a few tips about photoshop from Professor Mycynek I decided to play around and see what I could do to put a different spin on my pictures.
