Day 7: Monday Blahs and Rick Pitino’s Speech

Journal, Day 7. LUKE: School was one of those Mondays that drag on quite a while but not much work. Though when I see it’s almost November I can’t really believe it. I’m not that normal in that I don’t really want to grow up but it’s a part of life and there is definitely some benefits to growing up like being able to do a lot more stuff and have fun doing more stuff. Other than homework and such nothing much happened . RICK: I have plenty of opportunity to see public speakers. For two years, I witnessed how difficult…


Day 6: A Working Sunday at the Golf Course and an Airbnb Guest

Our journal project continues: LUKE: Today was an average Sunday of video games, homework and work. Homework was pretty boring since it was a lot of just brainless notes and packets. Work was also fairly uninteresting since when I got there at 5 most of the hard work was done. Today was one of those days at work where you’re just waiting for like five carts for an hour which gets really old. Then I get home and basically did more homework yaaaaaaaay. I know this is a very teenager view but personally I think homework is the most dumb thing ever. It’s…


Journal Day 4: Differing Views on a Perfect Golf Day

Our Journal Project – Day 4 LUKE: School today was filled with constitution packets, notes, physic quizzes, and boring French stuff. This is my first day of my journal where I had work at least. I work at Wildwood private golf course so most days lately have been real slow. Today was an exception holy I didn’t sit down once since I got there (I clean the carts, store them, clean members clubs, take care of the driving range, talk to members etc.). I can’t blame them though it was probably gonna be the best day til the end of winter to play.  That’s…


Day 3: Teen Boredom, Mormons and Nick

The Daily Journal of Luke and Rick, Day 3 LUKE School today was fairly boring, not much happened. The only thing of importance that was talked about today was… well actually nothing. The walk home from school oddly boring as well since nothing came into my head that was interesting to think about. However my brother and his fiancée came over for dinner, which is always great. We had some great cooking from my mom and talked about a variety of things ranging from school to family to Ebola stuff (my brother isn’t scared in the least bit). Though the symptoms…


Journal Project Day 2 – A Test, A Trip in the Dark

LUKE: Today the main exciting thing was we had a big test that a lot of people took. There seemed to be a lot of emphasis on it but it was pretty easy, actually very easy. In U.S. history we talked about how another victim has been affected in Dallas, though I saw a post on the worldnews subreddit on reddit on how the U.N. said if nothing changed for 60 days Ebola would become a very big problem. Currently in English we are reading The Crucible which is a play written by Arthur Miller. It’s pretty interesting and basically…

Highs and Lows on Tuesday: Herbstreit, a Festival of Ideas and Meeting a Reptile

Quite a week in my hometown. On Tuesday, ESPN commentator Kirk Herbstreit answered questions friend of Rusty John Asher at a charity luncheon for Catholic schools held in conjunction with the Trinity-St. X football game on Friday. Herbstreit said he’s a regular at the Derby, which Asher reminded us is only 214 days away. It was the start of the Idea Festival, where Angie Fenton hosted a session called Thrivals targeting young adults. I stopped in and heard several high school students ask intelligent questions about what will be different in 2035. One young man named Thomas was from Fern…
