Who am I?

Hello & thanks for visiting my site! I am currently a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy & Practice. I will graduate with my Master’s in Social Work in 2009, and I look forward to influencing social policy in a positive way in America…

…Okay thats the stock description. Heres who I really am ^_^

I love food. Pizza, ice cream, pizza, wings, a good beer, pizza..if its unhealthy, I probably like it. I love movies, and have a weak spot for cheesy action movies. I could spend the rest of my days happily watching: The World Poker Tour, Futurama, and CSPAN (go figure).

I was born in the wrong decade. Things I should have experienced first hand but didn’t: Hendrix, Marley, Floyd, Beatles, civil unrest, civil rights movement & hippie friends.

I love being active, and count among my favorites: basketball, soccer, running, hiking, biking, skiing, & snowboarding. When not on the move, I enjoy a good game of pool, or some cuddle time with my wonderful girlfriend  ^_^

***UPDATE JANUARY 2009***

I originally created the above email address because I didn’t want to get angry emails in my personal inbox. Fortunately, I haven’t gotten those kinds of emails (I’m not famous enough), unfortunately I often forget to check it. I apologize for not getting back to those of you who have written to me, sooner.

As of now, please use the following email for contact: douglaskev@gmail.com

See you soon!

  3. Hey Kevin, your mom Ann and I had a small conversation about you (it wasn’t much). However, I will also be going to graduate school next fall at Uconn for a masters in social work, but your mom mentioned you recieving your masters in a year. i wanted to ask you about that. How is that possible? And what are your intentions as an individual graduating with a masters in social work.

  4. Hi Andrew! Please find your question & response on the discussion board.

  5. You are cute

  6. Well that was irresponsible of me! I haven’t checked the socialjusticenow@gmail.com email in a while! So sorry for those who wrote & I didn’t respond!

    I’ll get in touch with you ASAP!

  7. Kevin……If you click on the title “Now My Firing Made Philadelphia News” it will take you right to the article that was on the NBC 10 & Philly 17, sister station.

    I want my job back so much. I really miss cross all the kids, no matter what race they are. I won’t say “C….” because that is what started this whole issue. I don’t know if i saying this right, forgive me if I’m not, but I don’t see a person’s color as being negative, I see what God has created as a beautiful person. I just don’t believe this has gotten so blown out of proportion. When is it going to be everyone’s world?

  8. Another thing, Kevin, if you scroll down to the title “I’ve Created A Lot Of Controversy In The Express-Times” that is our local newspaper here in, Easton, PA. Read all the comments. Mine are the SCHOOLGUARD. I don’t lie, I don’t steal, and I don’t cheat, but how do you get someone to believe you are telling the truth over somebody else’s word?

    I am going to look into calling an attorney tomorrow, because I want my job back. Do you know of a good attorney that will handle this kind of case without money upfront, because that is my problem, no money to fight my cause.

  9. I actually never visited this page before. I just wanted to say…thanks for providing the world with another corny/cheezy college picture. I see pictures like this all the time and they make me laugh :D

  10. Sue, there was a quite a bit to read through on those sites, and I must admit i didn’t get 100% through the back & forth.

    I’m inclined to believe you meant no harm by your words, but I find myself having a hard time coming down on either side…

    this would be one of those grey issues

    that being said, i do not know of any attorneys who can help you, but I recommend you seek assistance from a legal aid group. You are entitled to a free lawyer only for criminal convictions in my understanding, so in this case, you will have to seek out the good will of a lawyer.

    take care

  11. heyyy how do i get your someone someone arrived from somewhere thing?! i want one!!

  12. You add it as a text widget.

  13. I like the quote that says, “Want Peace, Promote Justice.” And that’s especially why it’s feels good when we find people like you in the world.

    Peace, Dawn

  19. Hello son
    Just checking in to say hello and I love you and what a “perfect storm” your conception was!
    Carry On all my social compatriots.
    You know I was thinking, unless there already is one, we of a like mind need to create a structured vehicle to be able to resist when the time, perhaps, comes down to it! My son is the computer whiz; I have the chutzpah and some skills of my own. We must create links for “emergencies”. Just a tiny seed and crystal moment from behind the scene.

  20. Hello there mom ^_^

    thanks for carrying me for 9th months. that was pretty nice of you i guess :P

    “structured vehicle to resist” hmmm sounds a bit like something homeland security wouldn’t be a fan of. which is why its necessary ^_^

  21. love the new look man!blog looks great!

  22. Hey there, your blog is fantastic. Your posts offer a lot of insight, I will definitely be checking back. I especially like the ‘Service Interruption’ post, it made me laugh however things haven’t really been improved for the other side of the world unfortunately! :p

  23. Hi Melbourne- thanks for the compliments! I look forward to checking out your blog and perspective on the “other side of the world” ^_^
