You Cannot Imagine What Awaits You

During my Senior Year in high school, my English teacher gave our class an assignment to write a letter to ourselves to be received four years into the future. It was a tradition for her; four years after high school graduation, she would faithfully place our self-addressed letters in the mail so that we would be able to look back on our past selves. Truth be told, I sort of waved the assignment off initially. The letter would not be … Continue reading

What You Leave Behind

As I type this, it really feels strange to think that by the time this post will be published, I will be a college graduate. At this point, I have shared with you guys both the beginning of my college life, and now the end. For four years you have read my hopes, my obstacles, and my moments of enjoyment as I pushed my way through college life. As I can see the end of this life on the horizon … Continue reading

Previously Intangible Friends

In my previous post, I detailed my mental journey about how I have come to regard my “online” friends as equals to my “real life” friends. In both domains, I have been making an attempt to be more open and flexible with my friends as of late. Do not get me wrong– I do not have trouble making friends or often get into disagreements with them either. I do however recognize that I am sometimes a little more retentive in … Continue reading

The Trip Home

Ever since I came to college, holidays between semesters have had an extra charm added to them. I have fond memories of the road trips I have taken when traveling between Dallas and Houston on my time off. Combined with the lack of schoolwork on one’s head, the prospect of saying a temporary goodbye to the friends you live with, and the fact that you will get to see your family again, such trips are just as memorable as the … Continue reading

My Setpoint of Happiness

Since my last post, I have finished up my Fall 2011 semester and have come home to visit my parents for the holidays. I once again must apologize for such a post since it is not often that I actually talk about personal problems, but like the last time I felt compelled to write such a post, the act of doing so helped my mind sort out a few things. Of course, such posts remain on the site because my … Continue reading

Fleeting School Days

When I think back to middle school and recall the stories that some of my teachers would share about their college-days, I remember how hard they made it seem. Despite this, I would always get the sense that some of their fondest memories had taken place in college, and I can now say with experience that they were correct on both counts. Since freshman year, I have shared with you all my experiences and the memories that I have come … Continue reading

37.5% Done With This Stepping Stone

Yet another semester has passed by– a passing that is indicated by the interruption of a long period of silence on my blog. Blogging is one of the activities I look forward to when I am on holiday, since during my day to day activities, I often make mental notes to mention on my future posts. That being said, I made sure to glance at my Google Analytics report to see how my traffic is holding up. I am happy … Continue reading

The Cakes That Weren’t Lies

I really need to count the posts that I begin by saying “wow, it’s been a while since my last post, huh?” Oh well… at least I didn’t start this post with that line. As you might have guessed, I have once again become busy due to school. Last year, you guys followed me from the start of my first year in college to the end, where I would often marvel at the plethora of new experiences I would face. … Continue reading

…And Suddenly, It’s Over

It is the end of the beginning, until next time that is. Since last Fall, many of you guys have been following my adventures (or perhaps lack of) during my first year of college. Based by seeing the titles of a few of my posts alone, one could easily see that this school year has been a real eye-opener for me– A brand new experience. I’ll refrain from rambling about the things I normally do when discussing my new school … Continue reading

Survey Outcome– Thank You!

First of all, I would like to take a moment and thank each an every reader, visitor, and classmate who took the time to participate in our class project. We ended up having a total of 73 participants in the short duration the survey was administered and accumulated valuable input during the process. For our project, we originally got the idea from a LiveScience article talking about how male birds who sing sexy songs to their female partners cause the … Continue reading
