As you can see by the sudden drop from semi-frequent posts to almost nothing for a month, college has indeed started up again and I am swamped with work. Sophomore year has definitely been a lot more demanding, but I feel like I know my way around better now. I am improving upon my abilities to time manage and also embarking on new endeavors through classes like "Revolution of the Western Mind". Lots has happened since my last post (August 26th): I started the first year of the business program, joined some clubs, and namely, had another birthday! Although I didn't have a huge party or gathering, this birthday was by far the most enjoyable. I was surrounded by my family and closest friends, and also had a great dinner at Tomukun. My roommate even surprised me with a small cake and candles, which was so sweet and thoughtful.
