This is Fantastic!

I currently teach Algebra II, Calculus, and Physics. Students in my class also get a minor in sarcasm.

If you rearrange the letters of my first and last name, it spells THE TRIG ORGY, which will be the name of the next band that I am in.

I plan on teaching until I make it on the pro bowling circuit or the indie rock world. I haven’t had the hiccups since 1994. I have driven through 3 entire states without using my hands. Nothing is more crippling to me than the prospect of getting shit on my a bird. I only write in Sharpie, I only eat one thing on my plate at a time, I have to face the door when out in public, and I line up my desks on the same tile every single day.  For over 2 years I have had the exact same meal for lunch every school day: an everything bagel toasted with plain cream cheese and a Dr. Pepper.

This is me when I was 3:

I find it rather humbling that many people talk highly of my blog and find it inspiring. Take everything with a grain of salt, however. I’m the same guy who used to pour whiskey from a flask into a bottle of diet coke each week to stomach grad school classes.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
