May the Fourth Be With You

May the Fourth Be With You. “Say what” you ask? Well I’m happy to tell you! Growing up I was exposed to all kinds of greatness. Lord of the Rings was part of my bedtime story rotation, Star Wars (episodes 4,5,6) were regularly watched, and Ender’s Game is still one of my favorite books. We […]
