Well, I have some more Tout-related excitement.
A ridiculous video of me being awkward has been chosen as a finalist for the August Tout Bout through DFM. Continue reading
In fourth grade, I won a spelling bee by correctly spelling the word “embarrassment.”
On Tuesday, I brought new meaning to that same word as I trolled the aisles of Central Market York looking for people to accost for this video.
You see, the Scripps National Spelling Bee was last week.

A Spring Grove Area High School junior from our Teen Takeover staff hung out with me all day for part of her graduation project.
