All About Beginnings

Let it be known far and wide that this is NOT a New Year’s resolution.  My only resolution this year was to not make any resolutions.  If that hasn’t created a paradox, nothing will.  That said, I do want to set forth with some intention, and not wander around aimlessly …

All About Endings

If I learned anything from this semester at college, it’s that a strong finish can make you or break you. Confession time: All semester my Math grade teetered back and forth between a B and a D.  I knew I was never coming out of a math class with a …
