Most of the tips on this page have to do with my adventures at George Mason University from where I graduated on 18 May 1991. I learned a lot from most of my professors, though I felt as though one or two (on dozens) were trying to indoctrinate me. Of course you know I didn't let THAT happen. When university makes many people more liberal, I became more convinced my small-town values were correct over my time here. I never did really get into trouble. Even when I got sozzled my last night, I never was loud and the party honouring my upcoming graduation didn't get out of hand. I did right well overall in terms of grades. Although I didn't set the academic world on fire in every single class (I did far better in linguistics than I did in literature classes, for example), I do not regret one major thing I did at George Mason University. Some of my former professors might beg to differ with that assessment, but in my mind, the grades were less important than the experience. If given a chance to do it all over again, the result would be much the same.
The most important fond memory of my years at George Mason University was the friends I made. These friends are even closer to me than the ones with whom I attended high school. Every so often, I try to get back there and see some of them.
Despite my best efforts, I still don't have everything I want on here. I need to take a more in-depth tour of old town for more "must see activities" and there are more than the 3 shopping opportunities I have listed. Keep coming back as this page will be frequently updated.

- In a nutshell:A fast-paced Washington, DC suburb with still a hint of historical charm.
