Lit Class Drawings

Never underestimate the creative powers of a 15-16 year old... Despite this third year class failing this test (only 6 of 33 passed) there were at least that many good drawings on the test itself, a success.

Without permission here are the best of the lot (in my opinion). All drawings on Letter size, white paper, no gloss, in pencil or ink. Dimensions variable, all cropping done by me.

Belize: An Assortment of Memories

With about two months left till I exit Belize, at least for the summer, the following is a collection of my favorite photos from the past 9 months. I like these for many reasons, few of them for artistic quality. Mostly, these are just the images I like the most, just cause.

The Flag Of Belize

Drinking Is Fun

San Pedro Ambergis Caye

Sun Set
Some Feet
The Lazy Lizard

Leather Hat...Hmmm.

Fly Fishing

Shady Spot

And Knowledge Is Half the Battle

These days as most of you know getting accepted into the school of your dreams is only half the battle. Upon acceptance you must somehow find the cash money to actually pay for what you want: a nightmare.
