So I'm off to Northwest Arkansas for my annual trip back home. Things have certainly progressed since my visit last year. For starters, my phone actually works! Other than that, there's the faint hint of WiFi every once in a while and one or two more emo kids than normal with their last year's AFI shirts and country drawls. NWA, she is a-changin' - but at least I knew her when she was in braces vying for prom queen.
