With or Without You Cover

Description: The first half is pretty straightforward, but I got into some more texture and ad-lib in the second half. I used uke for accompaniment this time around. Sorry for the low video quality. I forgot to switch to 1080 (which I guess is still pretty mediocre in 2017, but I don't profess to being a "real" YouTube cover artist anyway). Cheers!

Attention to College Students: How to Keep Track of Your College Grades

I'm not sure if anyone currently in college will stop by for this one, but I hope someone will.  Anyway, here's my recent article about how I keep track of my grades in college.

The Corruption Of Andreia And Thumos In Charlottesville

In this article for The Odyssey Online, I examine the tragedy in Charlottesville this Saturday through the lens of some Greek philosophy.  May the fallen rest in peace.  May the wounded heal rightly.

(Note: I don't wish for my article to serve in any way as a piece trying to profit from tragedy.  I will simply moved to say something, and I hope that what I wrote was worth the writing.)

Cover of "Riptide" by Vance Joy

For whatever reason, I haven't mentioned my music very much on this blog.  So I figure I'll link over to my latest cover on YouTube.  As you can see from the title to this post, that cover is the classic "Riptide" by Vance Joy.  It's a little strange (at least at the end), but I like it.  Here you are.

Articles Relating to Finances and Christianity, Respectively

This week I'm linking to two very different articles from The Odyssey Online.  The first is my article for the week, titled "How I Track My Cash Flow."  It's about my methods for keeping up with my personal finances in a full, easy way.  The second is an article by another student at UPJ, Becca LaBar, that has a really long title.  Ha.  But it's a really good article that's sort of about the relationship between materialism and Christianity.  Even if you aren't a Christian, I think it can still be a good read, especially from a humanist standpoint.  Read that one here.
