candle_DryburghThis was an episode a year in the making, so I really hope everyone enjoys it.  The basics goes like this, I am a creative thinker.  I let my emotions drive me and they really control my decisions.  On the other hand, Elliott is a critical thinker, he lets facts and reasons control his.  We realize we both think the opposite sometimes, but it’s very interesting when we talk about it!

BTTF-Doctor-Who-Delorean-TARDISThis week we talk about living in a different era.  I think the most interesting thing that I took away from this episode is the different thoughts that me and Elliott have on a subject.  The way we were brought up, the way we lived, who are parents are, and the things we read/watch/play really affect the way we think.
