How are you feelin'? I'm married with three kids, love cooking (when I find the time) and love old video games. I'm a retro nerd who loves to reminisce about the '80s and '90s and am an autism-awareness advocate. - PSN, Xbox Live and Wii U, game with me! @johnblueriggs (also on Instagram, Twitter and Pintrest)

Why Elementary Schools Need to Stop Giving Out Homework [POLL]
