Going Home for Thanksgiving

To think – I almost didn’t go home for the holiday…I didn’t book my train ticket until a week before because I was thinking about staying at school during the break, but that I did.

In November when people spend time with their families and ask the question: “What are we thankful for?” no one needs not to be told it’s Thanksgiving time.  Then, in December when it is snowy and Santa Claus and his elves are making generous distributions of toys, candies and other gifts for kids, we say[…]

The “Big” Transition

I meant to write this particular blog entry much earlier in the month, but as all of these feelings still exist in me, I’ll go for it now. I’ve always been a very independent person, and I don’t generally shy away from changes. Regardless, the entire time I was applying to college and all the[…]
