This May Be the End of My Streak

There's a good chance this will be my last blog post, or at least my last one for quite a while. I'm a bit overwhelmed with work this semester, and with blogging taking up about two to three hours of my day, I need to cut back. So a big thank you to all of … Continue reading This May Be the End of My Streak

Finding My Passion, Updated

Below is the second post I wrote, more than seven years ago. Back then I was questioning what my passion in life was, what my purpose was.
