Getting un-stuck from a rut

We’ve all been there: we get stuck in our ways and everything seems uninspiring, important, and insignificant.

1st Semester Complete!

Now that I’m 1/8th of the way through and absolutely a college veteran, I want to recollect on my classes and experiences going through the first half of the first year. I took five classes this semester; Global Business, Principles of Microeconomics, Differential and Integral Calculus, Interpretation and Argument, and Introduction to Philosophy. Funnily enough, none […]
