2007 (8th grade)

Ryan: My art teacher wants me to put a face on my figure project but I don't want to. Mine is a wizard and I think it looks better without a face.

Me: What will happen if you don't?

Ryan: She said she'd mark me down on the scoring rubric and give me a C.

Me: Are you ok with that?
Dec 24, 2011 - (Senior Year) The letter he's been waiting for arrived. YES, he'd been accepted to his #1 choice, Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, to study for a BFA in Film. And, he was given a merit scholarship based solely on his own accomplishments. We are so happy for him!!

- The wizard doesn't have a face.
- Ryan is still an artist.
