People who most positively impacted you:

My New Years resolution:

To read and understand more about America’s structures of racism and white supremacy, and what racial equity policies that governments can implement to dismantle those structures.

My predictions for 2019:

  • Disney will have the most successful year in terms of movie revenues of all time.
  • The term “Super Blood Lone Wolf Moon” will be a thing.
  • Liam Neeson will save a group of cruise passengers while being stuck in an interrogation room the entire time.
  • Millennials will bring down Big Cereal, leading to a “save the children” like commercial with all of our favorite cereal mascots asking us to return to the decent breakfast values we’ve lost.
  • Duke will beat UNC every time in basketball and win the championship leading to Kent Wyatt being in a multi-week depression/stupor.

What questions should we ask new members:

Is a hotdog/burrito a sandwich?
