Hello, my name is Gary Miller and I am currently a Sophomore at scenic and tree-filled Augustana College. I am a Colorado native who currently lives in downtown Denver and is a proud graduate of Columbine High School. I am an English-Creative Writing major with a Theatre minor, I also enjoy coloring outside the lines in the coloring books my professors give me here. I love being involved with Augustana football, wrestling, and Phi Omega Phi. If you take time to read my blog I can’t guarantee you will become smarter or know how to do Kung Fu like the Matrix, but you and I can be e-friends (as the kids call it). Most importantly — Go Vikings!
This past Friday I had the opportunity along with my classmates to go to a poetry day at Rivermont Collegiate in Bettendorf, Iowa. The school goes from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade. Important for the readers out there to know is the architecture in that school was incredible. It was like walking into the house from [...]
Growing up I had some wonderful neighbors who lived by me. These neighbors were the Nissen family, consisting of three gentleman who gave me some wonderful life lessons.

Rukmini Girish previously had a wonderful post about St. Baldrick’s and I suggest the read. She’s looking awesome with her shaved head! Here are some pictures from some St. Baldrick’s participants. Congrats to everyone who participated and the Roundel’s for putting it on.
So I was asked recently by one of my friends, “Gary, can I call you Gary?” I replied, “I prefer Thomas the Enke Engine or Colby JackCheese” So my friend squeaks, “Ok, man how you gon’ get a girl to go to a formal with you?” With great knowledge and wisdom I replied to that [...]
For Easter this year I took a sojourn with Conner Murray to a land called “Frake Farms” (Where they grow corn . . . on the cob) home to a creature known as Kyle Frake. The road trip was filled with solid music, such as that hot new joint by that dude Jimmy [...]

Kyle Frake has the 8th Harry Potter book signed by J.K. Rowling. Harry Potter and the Nagging Red-head Weasley and his Two Squib Kids 8. The Augustana Wrestling team [...]
I stared into the mirror today with the kind of look that only comes along when you lose your puppy. Not just any puppy, but one you stole from your rich friend because your parents said it’s a big “responsibility”. Perhaps you’re wondering why I’m such a sad Samantha. Here are Tres (that’s english for [...]
Spring break 2013 in Rock Island has been a learning experience thus far. I feel like the narrator in a growing up tale written by Stephen King’s nephew Rodney King. I began my Friday with a wrestling practice where one of my coaches asked me a profound question that really dug at the core of me. “Gary, [...]
1. This guy and his face. I believe he goes by Connor Cummings, or Nalthar the Destroyer. I’m thankful his gang of mercenaries protect me when I have to pick up eggs from the store, or when I go venture to see my friends in the “forbidden zone”. Got nothin’ but love for my crew [...]
I want to talk about something very near and dear to my heart. Well, whatever “heart” there is or emotions that I have. I read in Stalin Weekly that suppressing emotions is entirely normal and healthy. One day I’ll have mustache’s on my chest and brush my teeth with Pennzoil and barbwire. One day. OH! [...]
