Second Year Recap

I remember towards the end of my senior year of high school, Sister Carol asked my class to reflect on how we had changed over the course of our four years at Bayview. While we all agreed we were the same people, the growth we had undergone was so drastic that we would not have…

Wait… What Am I Doing?

The other morning, I woke up and decided I wanted to graduate a full year early. I’d been planning on graduating a semester early since the beginning, but now, the idea of spending three more semesters in undergrad seems pointless. I really don’t think I could sanely do it, nor do I want to. Being…

District Daffodils

I love how everything has been in full bloom for a couple of weeks now. Even though it doesn’t feel like it quite yet, it actually looks like spring! After driving by these daffodils one day, I knew I had to take photos here, it’s just so beautiful! That morning, I had been thinking about…

Snow Angels Fly Home

Today was a blur. This morning, I had a midterm in Physics II and then another in Introduction to Criminal Justice.  I likely failed one and aced the other. On the shuttle in, it was snowing heavily which was a total surprise. Fortunately, it didn’t amount to anything;  in a couple of hours I’ll be surrounded by…
