As we're nearing the beginning of May, we have been enlightened to the fact that we only have 32% of the semester left to work on our projects. Which is scary. This semester feels a lot shorter than the last - maybe time is just flying by faster - and, while it's partially due to … Continue reading Entry #22 – Track and Field (Without the Field)
People like to say that the human brain works in mysterious ways. However, I've found that it's a lot more frustrating to deal with when the mystery is related to my own.
