The Past and the Future

2018-09-04T13:36:07+00:00

It has been a while.  This last school year was my roughest yet, and I had to turn my focus to my classes.  My attention could not be towards anything else.  During the first week of the summer I was still studying, however, that was only for a couple of SAT Subject Tests. Now my summer is truly beginning.  All of that is done now and I am ready to get back into my writing. First off, I would like to give a shout out to my professor from the University of Chicago and a dear friend of mine, Dr. Michael [...]

Summer and volunteering

2018-09-04T13:24:40+00:00

As summer is starting, we often find ourselves loafing around the house and not using our time effectively. We think to ourselves, I have worked so hard all year, just let me relax. But in reality, now is the time to really do all the things you enjoy and give back to your community. I encourage all of you to find something that you can do that is beneficial for not only yourself but for the people around you. When you find a chore or job that you really enjoy, it is no longer a chore, it as an opportunity, a [...]
