Finals week. These are two words I have been dreading to manifest all semester. Time is a concept I have no control over so the inevitable has happened. The next eight days of my life are going to be sleep deprived and taxing, but wonderful and memorable at the same time. Finals week is also […]

Thanksgiving and Finals Week are coming!

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, […]

I have seven school days left. I’m having a lot of trouble motivating myself to do anything at this point, especially after the awesome Real Estate concert on Sunday night (I got one of the guys in the band to sign the handwritten set list I stole off the stage!) and the totally epic M83 […]

Said Your Prayers Today?

by Alumni Posts May 7, 2012

Today, I was listening to the radio and heard that it is the National Day of Prayer. I find myself thinking of when to find time to pray and concentrate on God alone. But when would I not be distracted? I have an IEP to write, a couple of journal articles to read and write […]

I Smell Summer

by Alumni Posts May 1, 2012

These past weeks have been quite stressful on me. I could let things get to me, be upset, or have a mental breakdown. OR I can make myself to-do lists, and I can have the mindset of I CAN DO THIS. Once you tell yourself you can’t do something, then you won’t. It is not […]
